Always up for a Halloween swap though! Message me.--
Just so you know:
I always rate the day I receive. No exceptions. I always leave comments.
I am not a flaker.
I limit the number of swaps I join so I can make the best possible item I can.
Medieval, medieval, medieval.
I love anything medieval (knights, castles, swords, shields, etc.) and anything fantasy related (especially gothic/Pagan themes, wizards, etc.) I like magic(k) related themes (wizards, spells) not pull-a-rabbit-out-of-a-hat magic. Fairies are okay as long as they are fantastical and not "Tinkerbell"-ish. And funny enough I don't really care for dragons.
I enjoy drawing. My skills, however, are more attuned to simple rather than detailed. (Example: very good at SpongeBob but not so much at Mona Lisa, understand? lol)
I love making and collecting ATCs. I like altering things. Lately I've been experimenting with felt. Most of all, I prefer creating things for other people, rarely keeping anything I make.
I enjoy crocheting, felt crafting, knitting (although I'm quite the novice at it).
I live near a seaglass covered beach. I enjoy making things out of the glass I find.
I'm a perfectionist when it comes to anything I make. I'm my own worst critic.
I do not like bling. I'm a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl.
I'm a 25 year cancer survivor.
I'm married and have two kids: a 20 yr old son and a 18 yr old daughter. I have gray hairs as a result...and I'm cool with that.
I do web design as a hobby and for local non-profits. I enjoy giving, not taking.
I am utterly fascinated by magic(k), the metaphysical, meditation, Paganism.
Jacqueline Carey - Kushiel series
Terry Goodkind - Sword of Truth series, George RR Martin - "Game of Thrones" series.
Anything about the Arthurian legend(s) or the Knights Templar or any fantasy genre series with a strong heroine.
Books on the subjects of magic(k), Reiki, the four elements, Paganism.
Journey...I'm their #1 fan :) or at least I would like to think so.
Luis Royo, Nene Thomas, Victoria Frances, John William Waterhouse
Doctor Who, SyFy channel, specifically Warehouse 13, Eureka (which is no longer on, sigh), Star Trek (TNG is my fave).
I like educational tv: History, TLC, Discovery
I'm completely addicted to the Antiques Roadshow, preferring the BBC version to the American show...primarily because the items featured are so much older and cooler...and sometimes I get lucky and see an item that's truly medieval (yay!).
SciFi, anything set in the medieval time period. I don't like what I call "dumb funny". My all-time favorite movies are "As Good As It Gets" and "City of Angels".
-Anything and everything Medieval, Renaissance, especially magic, sword fighters and knights, Celtic, Pagan.
-Anything relating to Paganism, Neo-paganism.
-Runes, oghams, ancient alphabets.
-Anything with a fleur de lis on it.
-I like paisley patterns, especially on paper or fabric.
-I love chainmaille...especially jewelry, specifically bracelets.
-Vivid colors. Rich colors, especially darker earth tones. My favorite medieval color combo is black & red.
-I like steampunk and gothic styles. "Dark" is okay but not scary evil sort of dark. Know what I mean?
-I love the distressed, used, been around forever, could tell a thousand stories kinds of stuff. I like the muted, earth tone color palette of distressed/Victorian/shabby chic themes.
-I like nature themes (especially trees and leaves).
-As a cancer survivor I like to purchase items that support the Pink Ribbon campaign. Therefore, I suppose you could say I collect it.
-I love green tea.
-Any Zum product by Indigo Wild. I use only natural soaps and shampoo and their products are my favorites.
-I'm not all that picky honestly. I don't care for bling or glitter, overbearing Christianity, pastel colors, or most stickers (although I do like the thick cardstock type).
-No recipes please.
A note about edibles: I have a few pesky health issues which require diligent maintenance. As much as I appreciate your thoughtfulness, I would prefer not to receive snacks because I probably couldn't eat them.
