My favorite colors are green, blue, purple and rich chocolate brown. I am also obsessed with peacocks, and am crazy about anything with peacock feathers on it.
I love to cook and eat although I have a lot of food allergies so my cooking is a very "creative" process!
My favorite holiday is Christmas, although I celebrate it as a totally secular holiday. I just love the Christmas tree, the cookies, the smell of the holiday, and the presents!
I have a very spoiled cat and not quite so spoiled pet turtle. They keep me company as I create most of my swap packages.
Things I don't love: cartoons, Disney, hello kitty, kawaii, strong political or religious statements (ok in a discussion with friends, not necessarily what I want in a swap package).
I like anything but opera and country. Well, I am sure you could find something else I don't like, but I have very eclectic taste in music.
Right now I love the Rogue Traders, Il Divo, Ludacris, Ke$ha, the Darkness, Apple in Stero, Caravan Palace, Cascada, and the Dandy Warhols.
Project Runway, Project Runway Australia, MasterChef (US and Australia - especially Australia) Castle, Bones, Psych, the Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock, Cougar Town, Fairly Legal, Leverage, The Voice, Sanctuary, Covert Affairs, Love in the Wild, Expedition Impossible, Doctor Who, Torchwood, the Amazing Race, lots of other reality tv, and plenty of show that have been canceled years ago but I get to revisit through netflix.
Knitting, sewing, beading, cross stitch. I am also learning how to crochet one project at a time, and I am always looking for a new craft to learn.
My all time favorite book is the Swiss Family Robinson - I love it so much I have about six copies and one on my smart phone so I am never without a version of it! Aside from that I mostly read non-fiction - I love books about cooking, travel, food, natural science and history.

I have been in a few swaps lately where people have requested more information on what I might like, so here is my best attempt at a wishlist:
I love any supplies for my crafts (listed above). I am especially drawn to natural materials and anything special and unique. If you don't live in the Northeastern US, remember that something which is commonplace for you might be special or unique to me!
I love to travel, anything that would help me to explore a new place from my own sofa would be great - right now I am building up list of places I would love to go in the next few years.
I am a passionate cook, any new recipes or cooking implements would be great! I cook without gluten, and rarely cook with animal protein. I also can not have cow dairy (butter, milk, cheese). I know that makes it a little harder to pick out recipes for me, but anything that is gluten free and vegan is usually a pretty good bet! I am not afraid to cook something with dozens of ingredients and many different pots and pans.
I have a very spoiled cat (Nicki), she loves toys and is always taking them out of her toy basket and loosing them under the furniture. If you want to add a toy for her I know she (and I) would love it.
Will add more as I think of it :)
