I live on an urban farm with dogs, cats chickens and a pig! We have a great big vegetable garden and boy are those tomatoes good! I love farm animals period and if I could get my family to leave the big city, it would be green acres for me!
I am a home schooling, soap making, garden loving mother of two wonderful children! I wish I had more time for crafty stuff but that will come again in time. I love all things creepy yet cute! I love elvis, Dia de los muertos, motorcycles, punkrock! I love shrines and all things asian i.e. images of the buddha or hindu gods.
I love to knit, quilt and sew. I am working hard right now to beef up my knitting and spinning skills. my new studio is done! now I can start learning how to solder and make some jewelry.
Lately I have been doing a lot of embroidery. I love it. just simple stiches, but I have a collection of really cool non-traditional patterns. It just curls my toes!
I like to make cards and dottee dolls, so i collect all sorts of ephemera for them.
my favorite colors are really about combinations. blue green/green blue chocolate brown/pink cranberries/ochre, all things black!
the colors i don't like are the really bright colors and the pastels
FAVORITE BOOKS LOTR, harry potter, lemony snicket, the spiderwick chronicals. I love the diana gabledon outlander series. The Mists of avalon. Really it is all about the historical fiction and fantasy.

my lovely girl is ten! I can't believe it. She loves fairies and the borrowers. All things tiny like dollhouse miniatures. She also loves anime like naruto, inuyasha and sailor moon. Studio Gibli films like totoro, Howl's moving castle and princess mononoke, and castle in the sky. She loves to craft and read anime novels.
he is 2 1/2 and way into star wars. he loves playing with cars and wooden animals, legos and blocks etc. He loves to watch starwars and wallace and grommet. He likes to paint and color and play with play dough!
while we have no allergies at my house, we prefer to keep it natural. If you send us scented things try to keep it essential oils. We are a waldorf based home (except for the star wars!) so we like to use materials found in nature: wool or natural fiber yarn, natural fiber fabrics etc. thank you so much for your consideration;)
