I'm 32, and I'm a bartender by trade. I love crafting all kinds of things, and I love swapping with other crafters. I'm pagan, although I don't subscribe to any set tradition. I mostly focus on the elements and green witchcraft, but I also do some solely goddess-based study. I consider my style to be a mix of a lot of things, influenced by current trends, the music I listen to, and really anything that strikes my fancy on a particular day. I really only wear t-shirts and jeans to work, so I pretty much do whatever I want in that arena, although I tend to try to dress up my wardrobe with accessories, particularly in the hair department. I do have really long hair, so I am in constant need of new and varied hair accessories. I wear a lot of pigtails, so I like smaller things in twos, but I also wear larger pieces by themselves. I don't wear any kind of headbands, though, becase they hurt my head. I have 9 piercing and 5 tattoos, and I'm still working on my tattoo collection!
My favorite colors are blues, greens and other ocean-y colors, black, reds, pinks, purples, really anything but too many oranges or yellows. I like the triple moon, skulls, anchors, tattoos, stars (nautical and otherwise), fleur de lis, spirals, trees of life, pentacles and goddess figures. I love books and reading! I love vintage tattoos. I adore all things Piscean. Also, I love video games, especially original Nintendo stuff. I'm into witchy and magical things, the moon, fish, skulls, pirates, Toulous-Lautrec, Edward Gorey, vintage music instruments and equipment, pin-ups, fairies, fairy tales goddess mythology (many different pantheons), Alice in Wonderland...the list goes on!
--V-neck t-shirt decorated with one of my likes, preferably in black or a dark color that liquid spills won't show up on too badly (Women's L or Men's S)
--Necklaces (see Wist for examples)
--Any clothing decorated with one of my likes (message for sizing)
--Hair Accessories (except any kind of headband because they hurt my head...)
--Homemade bath products: lotions, soaps, perfumes (solid or liquid), lip gloss/balm. Scents I love are chocolate, fruits (strawberry, citrus, apple), sage, cucumber, green tea, chai, mint, eucalyptus...
--Handmade scented candles. Candle scents I love are chocolate, hazelnut, strawberry, blueberry, mulberry, cranberry, raspberry, sage, rice flower, fresia, green tea, chai, mint, eucalyptus...
--A pair of pajama pants for my SO (I'm thinking just a standard men's large), who loves penguins, dragons/wizards/fantasy stuff, video games and the band Phish. I could make them, but he doesn't really understand the whole craft swap thing, so I thought he could be introduced best this way...
--A journal of any kind (lined or unlined pages) and 5x7-ish or bigger
--A small purse, maybe like 4x6-ish, with a long strap can wear like a messenger bag, preferably black with a design or something. I want something I can wear hands-free to hold only my keys, money, ID, etc., when I go out.
--Tabletop ironing mat with insulation enough to protect what is under it
--Camera case (maybe padded?) about 4"x5" or so
--Something inspired by my WIST or ETSY favs
--Iron-on transfer pens in any and all colors, but especially white
--Dried herbs for use in soaps, bath sachets, incense, spellwork, etc.
--White cotton v-neck or crewneck t-shirts (men's small or large, women's large) that will be tie-dyed.
--Handspun or hand-dyed yarn
--Wool roving in any color
--Hair accessory blanks (either the bobby pin kind with the blank disc or the larger alligator kind that snap closed with a crimp on the bottom side, if you know what I'm talking about there...)
--Buttons - any colors, shapes, novelty, etc. (especially skulls, anchors, stars, horseshoes, mushrooms. stuff like that)
--Felt in any color or pattern
--YUDU ink in any color
--Fiskars scissors (any size or style)
--4 miniature Rubix Cubes (I know it's kinda out-there, but I have this vision in my head and I have no idea where to get these little guys)
--Hair accessories, especially the hair elastics that are crimped in half with matching decorations at both ends. I wear a lot of pigtails at work, and I like to have decorations holding them. Also, I like large-ish clips to wear by themselves.
--Tall socks that reach the knee or over in any color or design
--Unscented candles of any size, shape or color, as long as they are not yet burned
