Hello! I'm not sure how I found this site, but I am wishing I found it sooner! laugh! I've been crafting for a very long time, and like learning new crafts, too! I'm a stay-at-home type, so have plenty of time for making things (when my cats let me!). I'm a silly, easy-going sort, love to be silly, make puns, and hug. :D
I like lots of different kinds of music! I especially like silly stuff (bonus points if you have heard of the FuMP or Dementia Radio!), alternative 80s, ska, goth, rockabilly, classical, show tunes, swing, bagpipes, Celtic, Thomas Dolby, progressive, and more. Led Zeppelin, Yes, Rush, and Pink Floyd rank at my favourite bands. The only music I really dislike is rap, country, pop-fluff, the Beatles (and Lennon), and easy listening. :)
I think most of my preferred reading lies in the 'young adult' fantasy (but not the Twilight saga!). To give an idea, I have read many by Rick Riordan (The Percy Jackson chronicles, and as much as I can of the New Olympians series)...I am currently starting his Kane series. I read nearly all of the Warrior series, loved Fablehaven (Brandon Mull), and read Pegasus and the Flame (Kate O'Hearn--first book in a series, and I will read more!). In rather stark contrast, I have also have read most of H. P. Lovecraft, and much of E. A. Poe. Neil Gaiman is just amazing, and I have read nearly all his stuff that I can get a hold of! That brings me to my next category--I love well-written graphic novels! :D Sandman, Fables, The Watchmen, and more...so many good ones out there! :)
I love animation!! Oh do I love animation! I am a Disney-phile, and eagerly await their new animated releases! As for non-Disney, a quick list is: Legend of the Guardians. Rise of the Guardians, the Shrek movies, Forbidden Planet, any Miyazaki movie, and others! I like non-animated as well, usually sci-fi/fantasy movies, and super hero ones. :D I am also a fan of a good action flick, like xXx, the Transformers, and Elysium.
I actually don't watch a whole lot of TV. We love our Netflix! giggle I've been watching Doc Martin! I am also a HUGE My Little Pony Friendship is Magic fan! giggle! I like animated series, such as Batman or Superman, but really don't seek them out. Most of the series I enjoy(ed) aren't on anymore. :) I like Disney's Gargoyles and Gummi Bears, The Thundercats, Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Trigun, and Cowboy BeBop.
My two favourite crafts are scrapbooking and card making. I also like colouring, plaster figurine painting, learning to do things with duct tape, basic jewelry, and some sewing. I also like learning new crafting skills!
I think for this category, a simple list is the easiest. :)
Likes: --CATS! Oh gosh do I love cats! Big ones, little cats, cartoon cats, serious cats, silly cats, Grumpy cats, Jellicle cats, Hello Kitty cats, scaredy cats, cuddling cats...okay, I guess you get the idea! giggle!!
--Fantasy/Mythology: I love mythological/fantasy beings, anything from the Fey, Unicorns, Pegasus, Dragons, Gargoyles, winged critters, the mystical and magical intrigue and sing to me often. I suppose here I can also include celestial imagery (like silvery Moons or Stars, or golden Suns, and the Zodiac, be it Western or Oriental). Any of these can be from the most detailed/realistic to the cute! Which brings me to...
--Kawaii--Yes! I love cute! What better way to brighten your mood, or the mood of another, than with something irresistibly cute? From fruits/veggies with faces on them to frolicking or snuggling critters (real or not!) Cute! Bring it on! :D
--My Little Pony Friendship is Magic--Ohhhh my yes! I am a Brony/Pegasister (depending who you ask!) Regardless, the show is just pure magic, as the name suggests! :D My fave characters are Pinky Pie and Derpy Hooves!
--Disney--I love their animation, be it their shorts (featuring their 'core' characters), or their full-length movies. I also love Disney World!
--Colours--Certainly all are wonderful, and all are needed, but currently my faves are purples, blues, and silver. Please don't let that limit your creations for the swaps, though! :D
--Silly!--I love being silly! How that can translate into the crafting, I'm not sure, but I thought it should be noted! :D
Well, these are great for a start. :D Now, onto the flipside:
--Bugs--I'm using the generic term here. This pretty much means anything with more than 4 legs. chuckle Not a fan of them! This is especially true for spiders. UGH! >. .< Is 'you' really so hard to type/write that it has to be truncated to 'u', for example?
Well, I am very much new to this site, so I am likely missing some important information to add to the profile. :D I shall have to see what other profiles look like, and join a swap or two, and likely add more later! I look forward to sharing and seeing other creative works of art!
Also! I will only be able to send to people in the continental US. Thanks! :)
Just as a thought, if there are those of you that wish to stay in contact beyond the swap that I 'meet' you in, let me know! :D
