I am a native Northern NYer, which means I live 40 minutes from the Canadian border. We have 4 seasons here and I like this one the best (autumn). I am married and have two adultlike children, 20 years old and 22 years old. I love dogs and have 3 of them, 2 Great Danes, a beagle. My favorite color is green, but I like colors found in nature. I like to knit, crochet, quilt and work with felt and scrapbooking. I am thinking of other types of projects I would like to do. This is a new venture for me, but sounds like fun and possibly a challenge, so that makes it even better.
Generally I like "new country", I do like celtic, folk and bluegrass too though
I like recipe books for some reason. I also like psychological thriller books, and mystery stuff. Like James Patterson and David Balducci
I don't really care for movies, too long to sit in one spot, occassionally I go to the theater for a new movie, I like action movies, Indiana Jones type movies.
I watch the do it yourself channels, MSNBC, History channel, Food network and I am a Survivor fan
I like textiles and paper the most.Knitting, crochet, felting, scrapbooking, Christmas ornaments any sort of adornments, stickers and scrapbooking items with figure skates and outdoorsy themse.
Things I like: dogs, Great danes and beagles nature, the woods, freshly mown grass the color green, but only the shades found in nature. I like deep colors, very rich ruby reds, saphire blues, emerald green and amber yellow. I like cloth, yarn and textiles, felt and paper products, especially postits and notepads.
I love to read any mystery and psychological thriller, I like NASCAR, Tony and Kyle Busch are my drivers I think I lean toward pagan beliefs, but am not too religious
Things I do not like, polyester, pastels and neons. Radical opinions about any subject. Jimmie Johnson. animated characters, from cartoons
My husband and son are hunters and outside people. My daughter is a figure/synchornized skater so any paper, cloth in those motiffs are fine.
We, my mom and daughter enjoy working on quilts together, lately we have been cutting up sweatshirts and t shirts for teenagers getting done with school and making memory quilts, we love this too.
I work with people with developmental disabilities, it doesn't pay much $, but has many other rewards. I have done this work for almost 25 years and most days I still love it. I like neat things for my office, and have a folkart type of theme in there, I like posters that reflect real people and places and currently have ROsie the Riveter and some men working on a high rise with no ropes during the 40's on my wall. I like things that promote acceptance of differences and items that are crafted in a traditional way like baskets made by native americans,etc, anything tradition and reflective of a culture.
I am very interested in seeing a whimsey jar and an atc as well as a matchbox. These are all new items that I am learning about since joining swap-bot. I think I might be interested in each of these things but would like to see them. I also may try my hand at a dotee doll, and could always get information from seeing one in the flesh.
WISHLIST: as far as paper products go, I like anything with nature, dogs, or just plain paper that would go with those themes. I like bits of ribbon, yarn , anything to embelish with. My daughter is in elementary education, so anything she could use for that would be welcome as well. I do like fat quarters and use them to make bandanas for my great dane.
Explanation of 1's - the threee ones I received for the getting to know you exchange, I have tried to go back to resend the answers however, due the swap being closed I cannot get access to the three people who did not receive it. You will note that it was an exchange for 10 people and the others did rate me for it. the other one for bbq sauce- the person who rated me is suspended, therefore I cannot reach her, I have a postal confirmation of the swap though. Please note my other swaps are all 5s and many Hearts, I do honor my swaps.
