Returning after flaking on my last swap several years ago- I feel awful about it and I'm trying my best to make up for that. My plan is to angel a few folks and hope that my partner will accept a long overdue apology and swap. The next step will be working on my rating, a couple nice folks suggested private swaps for that. I'm not there yet, but it's nice to look forward to.
I live with Princess Bobarella the iguana, and when Sadie Sue the Boston Terrier moved in she became a princess too. She's a huge dork, we get along great.
My doll collection began when I was 'too old' to play with them. It's a lie, it just means I play with nicer dolls. Mostly I collect vintage dolls and the 1/6 scale fashion types, Barbie and whatnot. The special one is my BJD, an MSD size lady named Loolu.
I love music, I used to work in a concert hall and I miss hearing a different band every night, even if it wasn't a good band, it was different. My favorite genres tend towards classic rock, goth rock, ska, punk, grunge and just plain good old rock and roll, with side trips into country and disco and new wave and folk and bluegrass.
I'm an old-school goth at heart, but I have other varied musical interests.
anything directed by John Waters, starring Vincent Price, or very low-budget. The cheesier, the better, I just love cheese.
Documentaries about killers, people with unusual beliefs or lifestyles, trashy talk shows and cartoons. Really fond of "My Strange Addiction", and those type of shows- especially the collector ones.
Lots of crafting going on! I crochet, sew, make frustrating attempts to knit, and I do beading/jewelry type things. Not all that great at needle felting yet, but I have a fabulous time doing it. My most popular crafted treats are hemp jewelry and crocheted hats, folks seem to like those best, and I love making them.
I'm easily amused, and pretty open to most types of items but if you'd really like to make me smile-
I'll love it even more if you made it yourself
goth- skulls, bats, spiders, etc.
I'm very easily amused by things like kitchen potholders that double as bunny puppets and those tiny little comic books about going to hell that people hand me at fairs.
I like little things; the laminated saint pictures pinned into old purses, tiny plastic dinosaurs with three heads, inch-tall bottles of hot sauce, gumball machine prizes, the 'wade' figures that come with red rose tea... I like little things.
and I collect:
dolls- I love barbie the most, early vintage to brand new ones, if it's Barbie, I like it. Yes, I take them out and play with them, other dolls too, but I don't have many baby dolls. My latest is an MSD sized ball-jointed doll, I love her dearly, any 1/4 scale stuff would be lovely!
gnomes. I'm especially fond of naughty gnomes.
Tacky, trashy and awful things- is it creepy, crass or quirky? Don't worry about offending me- it's not going to happen.
little toys, kinder surprise, homies, the tiny bobble heads from gumball machines, etc, whatever's tiny and fun. vintage clothing and accessories. pretty rocks, crystals, bits of beachglass, SHINY things. odd whatsits from thrift shops, funky knick knacks, pretty little saucers and giant coffee cups, crazy 70's fabrics- I don't mind a little damage if it's on something nifty.
ALLERGIES- I've been diabetic since 1985 (I was 5), and have a hard time saying 'no' to candy, so please enjoy it for me. Eucalyptus makes it hard to breathe. Also, I get a rash from glitter and certain types of tinsel, despite my love of shiny things. If it's sealed into something, I'm fine, it just makes me itchy if I touch it.
Dislikes- - brown. - mint flavored things. - sports
still need ideas? I could really use: fun shoelaces for boots or high-top sneakers, music cd's that you think are super awesome, little housewares type things, some beads, or bits and bobs of thin yarn or crochet cotton. Anything wool? I love wool- fabric scraps, yarn, roving, I'd grow my own if I had enough yard to keep sheep. Coffee or tea will never go to waste either.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE private swaps! Just in case you might like do a private swap, I could offer up:
-Handmade winter scarves, hats, etc. Any size- from itty bitty babies to extra-big dreadlock hippie hats.
-Cases, also handmade, for all manner of gadgetry
candy/international foods- There's a couple lovely Middle Eastern grocery shops nearby, full of European candies, chocolate bars and all sorts of international yummy- dozens of types of tea I've never seen anywhere else. I won't send candies in the warmer months- but during sweater weather I can send kinder, cadbury and other yummy.
DOLLS- if you like barbies, pullips or blythes, drop me a line-
sewing/crafting supplies- some vintage, most of it excessive. Buttons or beads anyone?
-Clothing in general. I'm in the small to medium range. I mostly wear black and gray, but I have a variety of colorful things to offer, some designer. Handbags too.
