I love everything crafty! I have tried (and sometimes failed) most craft activities.
I'm not picky at all, I love to see how other people create and craft and I LOVE altered items.
I live in Texas (I'm an east coast girl at heart!), I'm an Austinite, so I have access to some great shops. If there's anything Texas-y you'd like, I'd be happy to swap!
Things I'm addicted to: Taco Bell, Slim Jims (especially the tabasco ones), chinese food, Tabasco, shooting things, things that smell nice, cute animals (They just make me giddy), cupcakes, Batman, Canadians, Tabasco Cheez Its, coffee, and tea.
I have 5 pets. A pit bull named Roscoe, a Cardigan Corgi/Shiba Inu named Bagel, a badass kitty named Dr. Orpheus, a Colombian Boa named Mr. Zappa (complete with a perfect mustache!), and a Texas Brown Tarantula named Nightman.
And you'll probably notice I LOVE my pets (just not in my craft room!). As far as Bagel, he just recently started to learn to play with toys (and some bad behaviors, hah!) from my fiance's dog, Roscoe. So I would LOVE if you feel compelled to send dog toys, they go through them like it's going out of style!
As far as the kitty, he loves the Temptations treats in any flavor (sealed bags only please!), but only those, he turns up his nose at any other treats. Strange kitty.
I have a wonderful fiance who somehow embodies all of my favorite traits. He's Canadian, he has gorgeous green eyes, he likes animals and guns (though not necessarily together), he enjoys zombies and really terrible yet comical movies. He's also an incredibly talented musician, really. One of my favorite things is to see him in the grooving zone with his bass, adorable.
My fiance and I both drive SAABs, we also both like to go to the shooting range and shoot at zombie targets for a couple hours at a time.
As far as hosting swaps, I am VERY strict. You MUST meet ALL the requirements. This means number of swaps completed, rating, and not having ANY, not just unexplained, 1's or 3's in the past 3 months. I want to host good, safe swaps with no flakers.
My top craft of the moment is crochet.
My current crochet projects include a super colorful ripple throw, a set of round washcloths, just made myself a pair of slippers, and thinking about starting a granny square inspired throw.
I also love paper crafts, knitting, making bath items, baking, cooking, sewing, and getting into soap making!
My name is Alexis and I'm a yarn-oholic! Hello, Alexis!
I love hand-dyed yarns, yarns of nice fibers, and I LOVE cotton yarns.
Anything with owls. Or pandas, zebras, penguins.
Snoopy and Tweety
Peacocks and the colors of peacocks
My favorite colors are black, white, lime green, turquoise.
Preferably solid colors but I love variegated as well :)
Bath items! I love homemade soaps, especially cold processed.
Scentsy or other wax bars and candles (any scents)
Candies and gummies from other parts of the world.
This could be a long list, but I'll keep it simple.
I LOVE (as in they're a terrible guilty pleasure of mine) really awful movies. I'm talking the ones in the $5 bins at Wal-Mart where they shove 4 to 8 movies in there. Yes, those.
I love terrible horror movies, gory movies, zombie movies, movies about possessed toys, clown movies, over dramatized serial killer movies.
I also love disaster movies. You know the ones, "Oh no, the world is ending, let's all freak out and try to run away from imminent doom!" Yup, love em.
Anything with coconut, as I'm highly allergic to it. This includes lotions, candies, etc.
I'm also not a fan of anything fennel flavored, or something grape flavored things.
Plain green tea
Shark, spider or snake related items.
Licorice or licorice flavored things. Grape flavored things.
@chilady61 - Was supposed to send out her end of a private swap (I send a tea tote, she sends 12 teas) on or close to June 15th, after weeks of not receiving and no communication, I contacted her. She had not sent yet, and didn't even bother to let me know. She had no good reason for not sending as she had signed up for and completed 3 other swaps. She finally sent and when I received, there were 5 green teas, which as it states on my profile, I DO NOT like.
