I'm a stay at home mom with a crafting habit! I make and sell natural, handmade toys and children's gifts.
I have two little businesses, a dayhome and I sell handmade toys on Etsy. I love that both allow me to be at home with my 4 year old.
I like to cook, read, stay active and watch reality TV. I almost never watch movies, but I just saw The Help, which is one of my new all time faves! I love people but I also enjoy spending time alone.
I love to sew, crochet, cut and paste, or just about anything else. My favorite crafts are the ones I haven't tried yet!
Colors: Pink, Gray, Black and White. Not Orange!
Style: Simple, Modern, Practical.
Craft Supplies I like: Wool felt, designer cotton fabric, cotton and wool yarn or bulky acrylic for making scarves. Rubber stamps, clear stamps, and archival ink in colors. Watercolor pencils, thin-line permanent markers, nice paintbrushes whiteboard markers and pencils. Vintage buttons! Sewing tools (quilting pins, stitch rippers, gutterman thread and so on), cotton quilt batting, unfinished wood pieces. I always prefer natural materials and I'd prefer a smaller package with high quality items than a package stuffed with lower quality items!
Food: Coffee, raspberries, blueberries, tea, PB&J, health-food-store-finds and nachos. Mmm. Allergic to cloves! I'm not a big candy eater, but I do like gum and chocolate.
Things I don't like: Not a big fan of brown or orange (although I do like them in small doses) I hate Chai tea (allergic to cloves...) Paper, scrapbooking or otherwise, unless it's a pad of paper with lines so I can make lists! Halloween. Not into spooky or gross! Messes Movies
What I'll always be happy to see in a Swap Package: Cool Fabric Something for my 4 yo son Handmade Magnets Vintage buttons Cotton Yarn A note Chocolate that I can't get in Canada Trendy fashion pieces in neutral colors Red and Turquoise together Slippers (size 8!) Wool Socks A really good book Silver earrings (but not bead and wire so much)
