I enjoy sewing. I like to make totes, morsbags, zipper pouches, cup wraps, tea wallets, stuffies. I also like to play with polymer clay and beads and glue and glue guns. ---- pew!pew!pew!
Sewing, embroidery, crochet, polymer clay...
I dig just about anything using fabric, felt, thread, buttons and beads and yarn and needles and ribbon and clay and glue and paint and markers and photoshop and illustrator and my camera and and and... ahhhh... so many ideas... so little time.
Cute! I like Cute!
Handmade stuff, Mexican inspired stuff such as, Frida and Dia de los Muertos, Red, The scent of Vanilla, Note Cards, I Love to Bake -- Recipes! Religious Icons (Icons, not preachy quotes), Cute (I really like cute), Dachshunds, Gnomes, Skulls, Sugar Skulls, Loteria, Hearts, Starbucks, MadGab, Scrabble, Stuffies, Birdies, nesting dolls, I prefer cotton Fabric, Mushrooms, Anthropomorphic stuff, Mod Floral graphics. Fat Quarters, Sublime Stitching Patterns are way fun, so are Urban Threads patterns...Embroidery Floss and dental floss ;P
Blues, indie, old r&b. getting back into old heavy metal because my kid is appreciating it now.
I'm really into Pandora. Even purchased the subscription. So very worth it.
craft, chick-lit, memoirs and anything about the old south.
I dig audio format mostly, cos I can listen while I work, drive and craft... that and I can download them for free through the library.
TV not really into watching TV. Most of what I do watch will be on Hulu or Netflix. I've been into Akward and Pretty Little Liars (I watch with my teenaged step-son-- yeah). Heart of Dixie - I like a lot. I do sometimes like to watch the Tuesday evening line up on Fox (raising hope, ben and kate, new girl, the mindy project..) but only when I am bored cos my craft room doesn't have a tv in it... yet.
Napoleon Dynamite ROCKS!
Indie, Drama, Foreign, Gay and Lesbian films and documentaries. I don't do big blockbuster hits or sci-fi or fantasy or horror. I like stuff that is more true to life than fantasy.
It really depends on the medium, but I like browns, pinks, blues, greens and my favorites are deep dark rich reds and black. I love black. oooh, white is good too.
The swaps I join are those that challenge me to think, learn something new or that will give me more experience in a craft I already do. I will not join swaps that require me to buy something for my partner. Well, unless its an etsy related swap or something to do with fabric cos I love Etsy and I love fabric... For the most part, I am most interested in crafty, handmade swaps.
And lately... postcard swaps. been on a swap-bot hiatus for a while, slowly getting back on track... postcard swaps are a good start.
Let's See... What else? I really enjoy swapbot because I've been able meet people from all over the world. I've met some very cool, talented, and creative people here. Some of whom I would love to meet in person. So if you're ever in Houston...
I rate almost as soon as I receive. I appreciate the same in return. If you've sent something and you think I should have received it but I haven't rated yet, go ahead and message me. I don't bite. :P well not usually. Also, I receive swaps at my PO BOX. I usually go once a week. So, take that into consideration. If you requested delivery confirmation and know that it was delivered... shoot me a PM and tell me to get to the post office. :)
I give them.
I think I am that girl. The one you love to hate cos I give hearts -- for postcards even!!!
I give hearts for anything that makes me happy. The way I see it is, if the swap put a smile on my face, it deserves a freaking heart. So there. If the swap was late, I can still rate a 5 and a heart, but I will note that it was late. If you're a host and you don't like the way I play this game, ban me. No biggie on my end. I can always copy the swap or swap with someone privately. :P
One more thing
Hosts -- if you notice that my partner hasn't hit sent. Please don't contact my partner on my behalf. Most times I have already been in contact with them.
Don't worry, I do not go looking for angels.I will not hold a host responsible for a flaker. The way I see it, if I'm flaked on... that's the chance I took to play this game.
Please don't send any extras unless it just screams my name to you.
(here comes a hint)
Teas and Chocolate
black teas, breakfast teas, green teas and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Earl Grey. mmmmm.... Actually I don't really care for flavored teas but I love earl grey and green tea. hint hint. :P
Yeah, about that... I am so freaking snooty when it comes to my chocolate... I only like Hershey's with Almonds. haha, got ya. I do love hershey's with almonds but I'm not picky. unless its really cheap dollar store kind of chocolate I won't have a hissy fit.
So, if you must include something as an extra... I like tea and chocolate. But seriously, don't worry about sending any extras.
