I am trying to collect all the Smurf Happy Meal Toys from McDonalds. any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!! Update...REALLY need #5 and #6!!
I am a stay at home mother to three awesome kids. Two boys aged 7 and 12 and a 3 year old baby girl. I consider myself a very creative person, and am happiest when I'm crafting.
My biggest obsession right now is making amigurumi's! I can make anything from a pattern, including Japanese patterns. I can also make them with out patterns. I happily make them for private swaps (most of my swaps are for ami's lately). I put a lot of time and care in my work, and promise I will not send out something I am not completely happy with :)
My son love's Darren Shan. When he starts a book by him he doesn't put it down until he finishes it! He's currently looking for the Demonata series books 2-6. Since getting a 12 year old to read instead of play video games is a challenge, I would be thrilled to get ANY of his books. In any swap, automatic heart :)
I read quite a bit. Love Nicholas Sparks books (and the movies that follow) Jodi Picoult, Twilight Series, Jude Devereaux, Shopoholic Series, Some Nora Roberts. I could go on and on. I read everything pretty much everything (except for Sci-fi) depending on my mood. Although I'm not a Harlequin fan, or bodice ripping, bare chested pirate on the cover type books :)
I'd be happy to receive a book you enjoyed reading, and are ready to pass on :)
Some authors that I like but haven't read many of (so a good choice to pass along, as I probably haven't read it...)
I've been interested in "light" reads lately, like the shopoholic series (which I've finished) and the number series by Janet Evanovich (which I've also read all so far) but books similar would be good.
Also really like thriller (not horror) something that COULD happen scares the crap out of me (in a good way! LOL)
I love movies. Comedy and romance mostly. Thriller but not horror. See tons of kids movies (not always my first choice, lol) Some of my favorites include Something Borrrowed, The Notebook, Goodfellas, He's Just Not That Into You, Friends With Benefits, Dirty Dancing, Pearl Harbor, 13 going on 30....I could go on for pages....
Don't get to watch much TV in the day (does Mickey Mouse Clubhouse count?) Love Criminal Minds, Greys Anatomy, The Vampire Diaries (Damon is SO much hotter than Stefan!!), Big Bang, Cougar Town (so funny!) Burn Notice, Gossip Girl, Flashpoint and Rescue Me, and True Blood
My number one love is, of course, crocheting . I love making amigurumi's, afghans, fingerless gloves, scarves, hats, cowls, flowers and motifs for embellishments, sweaters, socks...the list goes on. And I love patterns! If you happen to come across a free pattern on the internet you think I'd like, pm me or leave a comment with the link!! I'd love it :)
Sewing .... I'm not very good at it yet, but I love it!!! I have become a bit of a fabric collector. My favorite fabrics are woodland prints, Riley Blake, Micheal Miller, Alexander Henry, and Japanese prints. Not into the big floral prints. I am currently learning to make pillow cases, so would LOVE to receive 2 yards of coordinating fabric!!!! (One yard each pattern) But FQ's are ALWAYS appreciated as well!!
Scrapbooking . I just got the I-Top, so I would love to get the brad, badge or magnet daddies that go with it. Love altering home decor items with scrapbooking stuff. Also like stamping and cardmaking.
My favorite brand's are Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, Bella Blvd., Bo Bunny, My Mind's Eye, Sassafrass Lass, Fancy Pants, Imaginesce, KI Memories, Jillibean Soup, Little Yellow Bicycle, October Afternoon, Pink Paislee, We R Memory Keepers.....
I would love to learn how to knit, but haven't found the time :(
I also enjoy making bottlecap magnets.
Right off the bat, I can tell you the quickest way to my heart is with Smurf items and amigurumi patterns from my Etsy favs!
That being said.....Here's a basic idea of what makes me smile...
SMURF ANYTHING!!! I love smurfs. It was something I shared with my Dad before he died when I was six, so it holds a lot of meaning for me. New or vintage :) I would LOVE any of the playsets like this....
Amigurumi patterns from my Etsy are especially appreciated.
Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn, ANY COLORS!! Especially looking for Cream, Light Pink, Black, and Hot Purple.

Cupcake liners and boxes.
Anything cupcake themed
Accessories for the I-Top. Brad Daddies, Badge Daddies, Magnet Daddies. Etc.
KI Memories Puffies
Glimmer Mist! Any colors
Cute Woodland (Owl, deer, hedgehog etc)
Pretty 4X6 photo albums
Any book by Keri Smith or like it! I have "Wreck this Journal" and LOVE it.
Kawaii. ahem....but not real people or animals, I like the cartoons better (Like Rilakkuma, Totoro, Deery Lou, Cinnamoroll, My Melody, Sugar Bunnies, fairy tales) And I'm not fond of pictures of food with a smile drawn over it. Not so much Hello Kitty, anymore.
Would love ANYTHING Crux Cream Bears!!!!
And I LOOOOVE woodland kawaii!
BENTO BOXES!!! And accessories!! I'm starting to get a nice collection of these. Would love more!!! Especially with cute woodland creatures on them.

Fun socks (not ankle length, they feel funny)
Key Fobs. Want to learn to make my own.
There are some higher priced item's there. These are for me!! I shop from my own Etsy list regularly. And some items are there just because I think they are beautiful, not because I want someone to buy them for me!! :)
My baby girl is 3. She wears a size 4. She likes babies (go figure). Absolutely cupcake obsessed! Her bedroom theme is cupcakes :) Watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Toopy and Binoo, and Caillou. She loves Zoobles, Littlest Pet Shop, Lalaloopsy, Moon Dough, and recently....SMURFS!!! I can't even explain how happy it makes me to see her play with them :) Anything soft that she can hug. Did I mention Mickey Mouse??? Oh, and seeing what she can flush down the toilet. Note...socks get stuck.
My boys are 7 and 12. They like most of the same stuff.
BeyBlades, anything Nerf, Action figures, X-Men, Pokemon, Bakugon (the balls, not the little statues), transformers, GI Joe, video games, Club Penguin, Maze Puzzle Books, Puzzles (Especially Superhero ones, more Seth on this one), Superheroes (Wolverine, Iron Man, Punisher, Dead Pool etc), Candy, Lego Sets, Skateboarding, Halo, The Simpsons, Skulls, Beyblades.. Josh is starting to like scary movies and books.
PRESENTS!!! So if you send them something, feel free to wrap it!!!
Basically they are BOYS!!! Very easy to please kids, and very worth the effort.
SIDE NOTE..... I have a husband who is feeling VERY left out. I share my goodies with the kids, but he says I never share with him. (He's diabetic, so he can't even share the sweets) So I am adding a list for him in case anyone feels sorry for him, LOL
He likes coffee, anything sugar free (chocolate, gum etc), and beef jerky especially spicy, single serve coffee (from Starbucks etc that he can tuck in his pocket for work) hot sauce, and he is a die hard Philedelphia Flyers fan. If he got ANYTHING Flyers, he wouldn't complain about the amount I spend on postage. ;)
And no, it hasn't gone unnoticed that he is listed in the Kids section! LOL
Cheap scratchy yarns. Super Saver yarn (like Red Heart) I won't use them.
Really old scrapbook supplies. I'm not a big sticker and die cut collector, unless they are big name brands like Cosmo Cricket etc. I know this sounds weird after saying I love scrapbooking, but I am learning once you say you like scrapbooking, a lot of older supplies start coming your way :)
Chocolate, candy and food past its expiry date. Here's a no brainer. LOL. I check the expiry dates on food before I eat it. ;)
ATC's. No offense to those who love them, I just don't understand the art. Please don't send these to me. I know you worked hard on them, and I just wouldn't appreciate them as much as you deserve.
Umm, and Dotee's creep me out! LOL
I don't collect postcards.
Magnetic notepads for the fridge. (I have a TON)
Notecards from the dollar section at Micheals (again, I have a ton)
I'm not a big vintage fan (like large floral patterns that look like my Gramma's couch, LOL)
