About Me

Sometimes I just blip off the radar. I'm around, though. :)

Scrapbooker, avid Sci Fi fan, Reader, Music listener, Adventurer, Foodie, Witch, Anglophile.

Scrapbooker - I love full page spreads. I tend toward 12x12 albums the most. I like stamping, but I'm not crazy over it. I especially love distressed and antique looks.

Avid Sci Fi fan - and fantasy too! Shows include Firefly, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Warehouse 13, The Flash, Arrow, Orphan Black, etc. The X-files will always be the very favorite. Great news about the mini-series!

Reader - I'll read anything, but mostly scifi. Turns out I don't much care for sword and sorcery fantasy. Love Harry Potter, of course. I guess that's wand and sorcery though...

Music Listener - I love a lot of styles of music. Queen is the greatest band to exist now and in the future. I also like Rush, Sponge, Kaiser Chiefs, 30 Seconds to Mars, etc. I really really like opera and classical music too.

Adventurer - I travel. Often. I go out of the country about every 5 years, otherwise I keep it local. I'm in the middle of a baseball adventure that will take me to every ballpark in MLB. 14 down so far. :)

Foodie - I'll try anything once. Except maybe bugs. I am a pretty good cook and love cake. I meant it. I love cake more than some people I know. I love my Crock Pot!

Witch - I practice wicca.

Anglophile - I love all things British. Seriously, even the food and especially the beer! Incidentally, there's been something of a ban on imported british chocolates here in new york. tragic, really. its just on cadbury products and anything that looks like something hersey makes. (because we make them shitty and rather than improve they'd rather sue and get the competition to leave the country).

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy a wide range of crafts. I sew clothing, make jewelry, crochet, and scrapbooking. I especially like clock gears, keys, nuts, bolts, screws, and all things steampunk. I also work with leather.
I just discovered a love of postcards and notecards through this site! Such fun!

Things I don't need

I sew clothing, so I don't really need any quilt squares. Quilting isn't really my thing.
I love my scrapbooking, but I'm not as into stamping. I find that I only use a stamp once or twice if that. I'm happy to swap the ones that do get (usually in grab bags from conventions).
Otherwise, I happy to try new things and see if I can work an unusual piece of something into my work!
Also, I don't care for disney so much. I like it, I just don't craft with it or visit the parks or care for its merchandise. Or kawaii or inchies or matchboxes. If you are wondering, just ask. :)

Extra Notes

I'm a married, 38 year old woman living just outside New York City.
I work in construction. Effectively making me a lady bro's bro. Stranger Things is the best show on television right now. Every frame of it is a work of its own art.

Fun Fact

I own a physics text book from the late 1890s. That means that it pre-dates Einstein's theory of relativity. Imagine learning physics without E=MC2...
This just in: I have gotten an 1860s chemistry text book. In it, the atom is just a theory; they haven't found Helium yet, and they considered titanium to be a useless element.

Comment: Thanks for the interesting photos -- I liked them both, for different reasons -- the green effect WWII artillery was eerie, and the 2 pieces of twin tower memorial was kind of ethereal. Both made me think ponderous thoughts about the tragedies of war.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You did well on the Money! Money! Money! Swap. You did not quite make it to the grand total, but what you did make helped you out with a down payment on a larger apartment. My rating for you is a 5. I am glad to hear that you are going to do the saving again in 2013. Happy New Year!!!!

Blacklisted Profile Stalker Swap- Sorry this is coming to you so late, I got the deadline mixed up. Awesome,another person with interest in serial killers. I have the most horribly morbid curiosity when it comes to murderers.

Hi Theresa!

My absolute favorite thing about your profile is that you have two awesome, antique textbooks. I'm sure they are worth a ton plus the sentimental value. I bet looking through it is really interesting knowing how much has changed. I have an old psych book that I find to be quite interesting. I love any old book like that, just to have and place on my shelf and look through. It's a lot of fun. Where do you get your textbooks from? I randomly found mine at the goodwill! Lucky find!

Happy Swapping!

Blacklisted Profile Stalker

First I love that you have a book that old, talking about physics. Amazing how so much can change so quickly! Something I noticed we have in common is our interest in serial killers and true crime. For me, it is not really about what happened but WHY. The psychology behind it!

Hello!! One major thing I noticed is the love of sci-fi and fantasy!! Although I lean more towards the fantasy part, especially in reading - I do love the sci-fi shows and while I don't have cable, I am able to catch up on all the great shows on hulu (or watch on netflix)! I just recently got the Game of Thrones Season 1 and I've read all the books (mostly before the series came out). Love how the show follows so close to the books!! My favorite author has to be Terry Goodkind - and he has a new book coming out here in July (can't wait)!! I also can't wait for the new seasons of Grimm and Once Upon A Time (and planning on buying Season 1 on dvd for both)!

Anyways, I hope you have a fab day!! hugs
