Favorite Crafts

Current Late Swap Update: I have been working every day of summer vacation. I'd love to do more swaps, but I still haven't created a satisfactory ATC for my swap due in April. I won't be signing up for any swaps unless I can make the item the same day I sign up for the swap.

I like to create things. Yarn, fabric, and paper are my favorite media. I knit, crochet, tat, embroider, sew, collage, mosaic, spin and other things. I do whatever is enjoyable.

I can do needlepoint, but would prefer never to do cross stitch. I like making patterns.

Collage has always been fun for me, and I put a lot of effort into magazine collage. There is something really satisfying about creating a totally different image from adverts. Mixing other things into the collage always entertains me, and I'll mix anything that I think would be interesting.

I own a button maker. It makes one inch pinback buttons and magnets. It is really fun.

Wish List

  • random everyday items from France or Canada, with French on them
  • Barbie suitcases and shoes (especially sandal heels)
  • cd album of Arwut Lab (Secret Weapons)

About Me

I like my pet rats and animals. I don't like cutesy pictures of puppies and kittens.

Retro things from the 70s and before are awesome.

I don't have a record player, but I will get one soon. I have a small record collection, just waiting to be played.

My favorite art movement was Rococo. Ostentatious frivolity is the best kind.

I love bunnies and seahorses. That does not include major network cartoon characters. I DO NOT like things made of real seahorses that are dead.

Favorite Television

  • Prison Break
  • Heroes
  • The Muppet Show
  • WKRP: In Cincinnati
  • The Great Space Coaster
  • Sesame Street
  • Ren and Stimpy
  • Antiques Roadshow
  • Degrassi Jr. High
  • Pete & Pete

Favorite Books

non-fiction; teen novels; magical realism

Favorite Music

I love Tragically Hip. I like rock and irreverent things.

97.7 Hits FM is my preferred radio station.

Comment: ..thanks for the catcher !! got it today..
Response: Please enjoy your modern predictions. The way we always used them was to have the questioner pick a color. Then we would open and close it alternately for every letter in the color. Then the questioner would pick one of the 4 exposed numbers and the user would open and close it that many time. Then they would pick one of the 4 currently exposed numbers, and that would be their fortune. I added the slit between the numbers to help preserve the surprise between fortunes.

Comment: VERY cute - Just today I recieved a VERY CUTE Emmett in my mail box. He asks that you tell his girfriend in Canada "Hello" - is her name Rosalie? Just love the note you sent with him. How smart he is to have a Masters in Rock Crushing. Sorry for the prior confusion! Thanks. C.
Response: Great! Enjoy his company, as he will protect your refrigerator from the garden gnome mafia.

Comment: That is an interesting pie recipe never hard of it before.
Response: It's delicious. Shoo fly pie is a Pennsylvania Dutch/Amish recipe. It's hard to find in other places.
