Hello! I'm a University student, studying art education. I'm an illustrator and a crafter, so creativity is definitely a strong suit of mine.
Swaps ((SPOILERS)): It won't work on the links above, but this is the link to my flickr ( https://www.flickr.com/gp/purpleriho/93rYPq ) if you would like to see more of my swaps.
((TEAS ->If I am in a tea swap, I'm in it to collect interesting and yummy teas. I don't actually drink tea, but I collect and serve it to my friends on a regular basis, they get a kick out of trying the teas I get in these swaps :) ))
For the most part, I am heavily infatuated with fine arts. Pen & ink illustrations and watercolors/ Guache are my favorite mediums in that realm.
I am also a fan of clay. I've worked with pottery and now mostly with polymer clay, making charms that can be worn or used to accessorize belongings.
Washi tape. I started my collection maybe 2 years ago and now have about 150+ washi/ decorative tapes.
There is this joy I get from giving gifts in decorated bags that is worth the small investment of collecting small bundles of Asian cello bags decorated with lace prints and ribbons.
Miniatures is also a weakness. I bought a colonial doll house about a year ago that I intend to someday built (maybe once I have the space for the large thing.) But finding furniture and accessories is awfully difficult. I'd like to keep it at the earliest, a Edwardian theme. I love dollhouses.
I have a planner! I love decorating it :)
I enjoy alternative, classic rock, and 90's music. I also collect vinyl records of swing and classic rock.
There is a really long list that would take me a very long time to write, but here is a condensed version of it: Manga, The Tithe series by Holly Black, Books by Donna Jo Napoli, Books by Denise Little, Books by Jude Deveraux, Books by Piers Anthony, Harry Potter series (Hufflepuff!), Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, The Naming series, Candide by Voltaire, Tartuffe, Antique fairy tails, Books on mythology, ... and others of the like.
Parks an Recreation, Orphan Black, Adventures of Rick and Morty, A lot of Anime ( Sailor Moon, Inuyasha, toradora, Hana Yori Dango, etc.), Doctor Who, Over the Garden Wall, True Blood (first 3 seasons), Carnivale, Sherlock, Dead Like Me, The Lost Room, Lost in Austen, Merlin, Firefly, North & South, The Vicar of Dibley, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and others...
Ever After, Harry Potter series, Mansfield Park, Disney films (except Frozen and Planes), Studio Ghibli films, Amelie, Cat's don't dance, Beetlejuice, Casper, Romeo & Juliet, Twister, The Dark Knight, The Prince of Egypt, Don Bluth films, The thief and the cobbler, Lady in the water, Matilda, and others.....
I dislike Seafood/shellfish and coffee. Also, please nothing of a religious nature :)
I don't enjoy sewing but I do like designing patterns and fashion ( I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was younger.) I also do not like wood veneers.
Please avoid touristy postcards. Especially the ones that are a ill proportioned map of a state.
( hope these are helpful ! )
