Hi. I'm a mom and wife who loves to craft. I love to read and have my quiet time. I love magazines as well. I have to be careful or I will bring half the bookstore home with me. :) I love art with vintage dogs in it. I'm also very fond of birds, elephants, foxes, squirrels, hedgehogs, hippo's. I guess you could say forest and jungle animals.
My favorite store is anthropolgie and I love the style. I do seem to have a split personality when it comes to style because I'm also drawn to simple things with clean lines. Danish design is absolutely wonderful. A white back drop with a bright side and very colorful images. Simple with a pop of color. I also like retro style like in the 40's & 50's. A non-cluttery feel because I have enough clutter in this head of mine. :)
I'm inspired by vintage and modern children items.
I love using essential oils. Herb and earthy smells are what I like best. Kimono rose by Thymes is my favorite.
I'm obsessed with fabrics. Vintage fabric, feedsacks and japanese prints are my favorite. I tend to like small print and light and bright fabrics.
I also love colorful buttons.
My favorites colors changes a lot depending on what it's for but I love red as well as pinks, orange, whites. Blues and greens if there bright or vintage looking. I'm not to crazy about purple or dark colors but won't rule it out. There's always a time & place that it will fit.
I love to paint, draw, sew, crochet, embroider and felting. I'm just getting into quilting. I like to try my hand in a little of everything.
Stationery & paper,
cute & different To-Do lists,
vintage baby diaper pins,
vintage dog items,
handmade items, can't go wrong there.
organic and natural things,
decorative office supplies like cute push pins & colorful clips, etc., fabric, charms, girly things, vintage items, things that are happy, cheerful, and put a smile on your face.
Fresh clean sheets, smell of fresh cut grass, quiet and stillness of night after everyone has went to bed, feeling of a book in my hand, walk & hikes in the woods, reading to my kids at bedtime, making cupcakes with the girls, going out for coffee, flea markets, grilling out, fresh tomatoes from the garden, organic and earthy things.
Negative, rude people and attitudes. Skulls and such. Primitve country style, Disney.
Sorry for those who I was in a swap about books, and forgot to add this. :)
I'm pretty open minded and enjoy reading in general. I've been known to just go into a library and randomly pick books off a shelf without even reading what the book is about and take it home. Sometimes they're not for me, or I just can't get past the first chapter without getting bored, but others times I find another wonderful author.
I enjoy fantasy the most. I get enough of reality in everyday life but do enjoy it if the plot keeps me going. Mystery & romance is another favorite. I also enjoy reading mythology and anything about ancient people & cultures. Craft books of course, healthy cooking that's simple or books that are inspirational.
