My etsy faves
I am a SAHM with two boys whom I homeschool, ages seven and nine. When I am not teaching, cooking or cleaning, I am downstairs in my studio tinkering with fabric and sewing machine, or tucked up on the couch with knitting and a good audio book.
I live in Colorado and enjoy viewing and hiking in the Rocky Mountains.
My favorite colors are any shades that are found in nature. Lately I've been enjoying brighter, but still realistic colors. I really like jewel tones and soft pastels.
I homeschool my boys and we use swap-bot swaps (especially postcards) to learn about geography, art, and history. They love checking the mail! I would love to get more art postcards to start an art appreciation notebook with them.
My favorite holiday is Easter, though I also enjoy Christmas when it isn't too frantic--we try to keep it peaceful around here. I do not celebrate Halloween, but I do love "harvest" themed decorations,cards, etc.
I always try to send my swaps as soon as possible. If you don't receive something please message me on swap-bot as I usually check here more frequently than my email. I'm happy to resend if you don't get your swap.
I love listening to audio books--librivox.com is one of my favorite sources. I also like historical fiction and some classical literature.
Favorite authors: C. S. Lewis, Shakespeare, Georgette Heyer, Emily Dickinson L. M. Montgomery
I also keep a sharp eye out for good children's authors, and prowl the kids' aisles in the library.
I read knitting and crafting magazines, and any home/decorating type magazines too.
period pieces--I really enjoyed The Scarlet Pimpernell with Jane Seymour, but my latest favorite is North and South, I think it is Masterpiece Theatre?
embroidery, knitting, crazy quilting--anything to do with fabric, yarn, thread, buttons, etc. I tend to go in phases. Mail art, stamping, collage, altered art, recycling type crafts, etc.
I also like drawing and painting with water colors, though I'm not really good--would love to learn more. I appreciate all the great artists on swap-bot who are willing to share their art--it inspires me to keep working at it!
I am rather eclectic when it comes to music, and i'm usually more about the lyrics and the history behind the piece than the music itself, but I enjoy classical, Christian, folk music and some Broadway.
When I am in my studio I am usually listening to a book or a podcast.
