I love to create things I love to build things I love getting into new projects all the time and seeing what I can do also perfecting what I do.
I love the idea of sharing my artistic nature and getting to appreciate others creativity.
I love color, I love complimentary color and even certain contrasting color I also like Grey scale black and white on there own or with color an example would be the majority of Shepard Fairy's art work. Fall colors are always great, like the color of changing leaves, of fire.
I like fresh air and going long boarding, I love to dance. I enjoy cooking and baking as once again it's making something and it's an art form.
I love all crafts but I'd have to say I'm big on accessories. I love making purses, hair clips, necklaces, bracelets , earrings, stationary , wallets , books , dolls , scarves , I also really love reconstruction and recycling, to make something new of something old is just so rewarding.
I really do love music of all sorts as everybody should. Music is soul.
Some bands I listen to on a regular basis are:
Legendary Shack Shakers * Squirrel nut zippers * Big bad voodoo daddy * Daft Punk Chemical Brothers Modest Mouse Pixies TV on the radio Mike Patton and all his projects (fantomas , mr.bungle ,peeping tom , mike patton vs the executioners ect.. Bloc Party Z trip DJ Shadow Whitey (from Chilliwack) Ninja spy The Avalanches Gloom Room The Eels Against me Nouvell Vague ........
Jeff Noon is my new favorite Author so far my favorite of his is Vurt, Falling out of cars was pretty awesome too. I enjoy Gregory Maguires works such as Wicked and sequel Son of a witch also the Borderland series.
Just like to let anyone (swappers) know that I would never sign up for a swap without the intentions of follow through. I would not like that to happen to me so I would never do it to somebody else. I only send things that I like or would appreciate. I also believe in good quality, it's very important.
If you ever have any questions about anything feel free to ask.
MSG (I'm allergic to it), the color combo of red and green, pink nail polish , I am a vegetarian too, so obviously no leather or bone etc, no Avon please, or white soap as it makes me itchy, I have sensitive ears too so no cheap earring only nickel free, silver or surgical steel I just plain ol hate gold to me it's tacky as all hell (and not in the good way) But I have some exceptions like sparkely gold vinyl it rocks.I don't like dolphin stuff.
I love bulky jewelery sparkles that don't shed (ie: sparkley vinyl), patches, notebooks two or more headed stuffed animals/dolls anything weird really. I consider my style to be unique and eclectic I love vintage and retro style (thats a bit vague I guess more specifically I like vintage ad's or pictures of women, I have lot's, I like art nouveau it's a very organic form I much admire, I like a bit of art deco esspecially the works of Tamara De Lempicka)I love 70's stuff old adds.I'm always looking for flowy or unique frames, I have yet to find one, I like certain smells like Satsuma or sweet pea. I like Jeff Noon books a lot so far I have read Vurt and Falling out of cars my boyfriend has Automated Alice and Cobrilingus which he lent out to people and I am eagerly waiting the return of so I can read, but he (Jeff Noon)does have other books that are hard to find (as all his books are) that I would love to get my hands on, I like glass jewelery , knitted items like big toques to accommodate my dreads I love funky hats in general but keep note of my big head, I like homemade items like candles but not the bee's wax kind (they burn up too fast), I like silicone bake ware in bright colour, I like soft plaid fabric too for my never ending patch blanket of plaid mayhem.I could always use more craft supplies, thread 100% polyester as it doesn't keep snapping, felt as I'm getting really into felting, always looking for a more durable glue, I love buttons the bigger the better, I like random patches, black pens. I like patchwork items dragon flies, mermaids and decorated boxes. I love octopuses. Birds like swallows. I love tattoo style like sailor jerry. I love pin stripped art, I love old school pin up girl pictures.
The science of sleep (very recommended for people who like making stuff)
Equilibrium was a good movie too
I swap with Swap-bot!
For visual reference on things in styles I like:
Hey I just want to let the people in my tea swap know that I am sending my items yet I may not get to rate the people I receive from right away. I just went through a huge break up with my boyfriend of 4 years and he wants to keep the computer. I do plan on eventually getting another one yet not right away. My sincere apologies yet know I will rate as soon as I get the chance to, once again sorry for any trouble.
