I'm a work at home Mother of 2 ( Girl and Boy ages 3 and 5) who loves crafts, knitting, spinning, everything fiber related. We just adopted a 4 year old male Boston Terrier named Chopper. He is the sweetest dog ever!
I also own/operate an online fiber business, but I've joined this site purely for fun! If you're a knitter send me a message and I will send you some patterns I have created (shawls, scarves)
Some other things I'm interested in doing or learning about are: Natural Building Square Foot Gardening Writing/women's studies Homeschooling my kiddos
Crafting/art-wise I'm interested in trying: ATCs Digital Scrapbooking stamp carving paper making zentangles
I've joined several pen-pal swaps so far- I'm always interested in Pen palling. I'm really new to this (well I had one when I was a kid) so I don't have the nicest stationery yet, but I'm slowly building stock.
Postcards!! I'm on postcrossing so I love to get postcards either blank (for me to use) or filled out. I'm also on bookcrossing, though I haven't quite figured everything out yet.
My favorite color is Green. I'm not eating sugar right now as I'm trying to reach a weight loss goal and I don't like the idea of genetically modified food.So, no sweet treats for me! I do love tea and coffee though mmmmm
I've traveled to several countries, but haven't left the states in about 9 years. I'm pretty eclectic- I love sparkly things, but I also love natural looking things. My home is very bohemian, and I have an affinity for anything arabesque. Our family loves music and my husband is an excellent guitarist.
I love handmade things! I love when people put lots of thought and time into creating something from scratch.
Favorite movies include: The Ghost and Mrs Muir, Under the Tuscan Sun, The King and I, Avatar, Harold and Maude, Auntie Mame, Amelie PRINCESS BRIDE
Music: Joanna Newsom, Josephine Foster, Devendra Banhart, Sigur Ros, Loreena McKennit, St. Germain, Elvis Costello, Cat Power. Lia Ices... If it's good, I like it!!
I collect nature photography (especially trees!), Polish Pottery, Jadeite bakeware, hand carved stamps, ephemera (love old postcards and soap labels). I love jewelry, but I can't wear non-precious metal earrings. I also love handmade body care stuff- that is all we use, our whole family is allergic to the synthetic stuff!
I love to learn about other religions and belief systems, don't be afraid to talk about the deep stuff with me.
Right now, I'm on a preparedness kick since we had a horrible storm last year which devastated our town. I find it fun to stock up water/food and learn survival skills!
Books I enjoy: Non Fiction on various topics like homebuilding, permaculture, anything craft/art related, photography, altered art etc. I also enjoy some self-help/emotional freedom books. I also love good fiction- no romance novels, pulp sci fi etc. I studied creative writing in college so I'm a bit of a fiction snob. Don't get me wrong- I loves me some Tolkein/Lackey fantasy but this genre seems really hit or miss with me.
Loves: Pre-Raphaelite Art, Art Nouveau, Gypsy Carts, Cob Houses, Herb spirals, rolling countryside, warm handknits, feeling calm and safe, stained glass, learning new things, acoustic guitar, my grandmother's kitchen, gnomes, woodland creatures, trees, toadstools
dislikes: Disney, wal-mart, acrylic yarn, mean people, sarcasm, drama, excuses, cigarette smoke
