When I found this site, and thought "How Fun!" I LOVE doing crafty things, and am excited about getting involved, and seeing what other people have to offer! I am a FROG FANATIC, obsessed is putting it mildly, but my hunny and 2 kiddos don't mind, lol! We have 2 Fat Cats and a Beautiful Smiling Dog! I love all shades of greens and blues, especially colbolt blue, anything that reminds me of being at the ocean or near nature! Oh, and I can't live without my beanies (hats)!
I Love ALL music. Dave Matthews is one of my favorites, his wife is a very lucky lady...he is so romantic...But I listen to everything from Tool to Frank Sinatra, Olieander to The Pie Tasters, Led Zeppelin to Snoop Dogg ...you never know what kind of music fits your mood on a given day! Right now I am listening to a "mixed tape" my dad had made!
I have started playing with my sewing machine more lately, I am teaching myself :) I have made some things for my daughter, and some cute purses out of old jeans and chords...I am addicted! I enjoy making jewlery, earrings especially! I like to find fun beads from the thrift store and "up-cycle" them into something more fun! I also have fun making beaded bookmarks for friends and family, and also for fundraising for my daughter and The Sturge-Weber Foundation. I have just started making cards and tags too! And I love baking and fun activities and crafts for my kids...I think it's important to get them involved in things we can do together!
I am pretty simple, and love to try new things, but here are some of my favorites...
*FROGS *Beanies (hats) *Handmade things *Fun Sayings or Poems *Vintage Buttons :) *Plants *Slipper Socks *Smilng Children *Awesome Fat Quarters *Books *The Ocean *CHOCOLATE! *Thrift Shopping *Little Pouches *Cobalt Blue *FROGS *Surprises for my children *Green *Comfy Socks *Organizing *Neat Little Boxes *Scrapbooking *Candles *Did I Say FROGS, lol *Awesome Craft Paper *Being Green too *Beads *Sunsets *Awesome Holiday Decorations *Kids Crafts
I'm sure the list could go on and on...
I also have fun trying to find something special for people, So I will do my best to find something you love, and I will ALWAYS add alitle something extra...Hearts and Stars will always be Appriciated and Given if you put in the effort! I will also always Send and Rate in a reasonable time frame!
My son Ethan is 9. He loves to read (Were talking Harry Potter and Eragon) draw, create and build things, and play with his bakugan balls. Ethan's favorite colors are red and yellow. Oh, and he loves pirate stuff! His favorite treat is a Hershey's bar.
My daughter Riley is 6. She loves to read, color, play with her stuffed animals (and yes, she has named each and every one of them) and is a total girley girl! Riley's favorite colors are pink and purple, and she loves puppy in my pocket-or any small animal toy :). Her favorite treat is Skittles.
Ethan and Riley LOVE getting mail addressed to them, and they would be so excited to recieve "wrapped" surprises too! They would both like to get involved in some fun swaps, and they love to do crafty things with mom too. We play lots of board games, and card games...and every friday night is movie night (something to make this a special night would be Great!)
I don't collect Kawaii (but love the froggies, ofcorse), or ATC's or anything like that. They are pretty and I love to see how talented everyone is, but it's just not my thing. No Dark Chocolate...yucky! I don't like bugs or hunting/fishing type stuff...Although, my hunny would probably love some new fango fishing type contraption, lol. No Pink or Purple, I'm not much of a girly girl, well sometimes...
