I am not swapping for the time being while I get things in order in my life.
I am a happy owner of a startup business called Blackwidow Stitchworks. Our mission is to change the way you think about handmade.
I enjoy crafting and teaching crafts to everyone but especially adults with developmental disabilities. Making beaded jewelry and purses are my current favorites. I live alone in a great neighborhood with my a Min Pin named Danni, a Huskey mix named Waker and two cats - a mostly white male that I call White Cat (his given name is Angel - which he is definitely NOT) and a black short-hair kitten named Smudge.
I am allergic to Cinnamon, animal dander (all of them but my own, and even them sometimes!!), nickel and bromide and have Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity. :-)
SciFi and Fantasy - Anne McCaffery, Mercedes Lackey, Kim Harrison, Roger Zelazny, etc.
Action and Mystery - J.D. Robb, Janet Evanovich
Pagan and nature-related
Cookbooks - I love the kind where people collect favorite recipes for fundraisers, potlucks, handwritten cookbooks.
Crafts and How-to books - especially dying, painting or embellishing fabric; working with wire; making glass/stained glass; simple wood projects; traditional cultural crafts (like in Pieceworks magazine), art quilting.
Wow, I'll try to limit this to the top 20... ;-)

Witches/pagan, nature, dogs (esp. boxers and MinPins), cats, animals of all kinds, cooking, fabric and sewing stuff; coffee and tea; motorcycles; leather; rainbow colored things (gay/lesbian themes); rocks; driftwood; middle eastern dance (belly dancing) themes; beads (especially gemstones, glass and bone); herbs; music of ALL kinds (yes, really!); celtic, medieval, fairie, goth/victorian and asian themes; camping; mushroom hunting. I like bright colors rather than pastels but I like to play with colors and fabric embellishment is my passion. I am also a "foodie" so anything relating to food or cooking is great too and I collect cookbooks.
Rude or disrespectful behavior, any kind of abuse, and people who tell me I can't do something. :D
