Goodness me.. reading other peoples profiles is great, but sorta makes me think there isn't that much to me.. that I can really think of!
I am a stay-at-home grandma with 11 grandkids, and an angel baby, and 2 extra by default, plus another one on the way - due May. I take care of one full-time.. I have 4 adult kiddies.
I have fibromyalgia and a few other minor disabilities but do crafty things to keep me 'active', sane and not sitting in a corner, waiting for the Grim Reaper..
I don't really have a favourite music.. though anything with a 'big' sound is good.. I like, in no particular order:
I also like:
There used to be a radio on all the time in the kitchen, but the music is so boring and repetitive that I don't have it on anymore. There is a radio in the GD's room, she 'can't sleep without it' !
Once upon a time... lol, I used to read a lot of books, I was always in trouble at school for not listening in class because I was reading a book instead! With the birth of kids and with life in general, I don't read much anymore.. unless it is craft magazines, of course. Or blogs.
My favorite book though, is Power of One.. and the sequel, Tandia.
I don't watch many movies, I find them 'unbelievable' and predictable. Though I do like to watch kids movies.. lol..
The Green Mile was a great movie..
SSHH.. Just between you and me.. I love Top Gun too.. I watched it 4 times in a row when it first came out on video and twice a day til it was time to take it back to the shop.. how sad. LOL
But I am not that keen on Mr Cruise.. I just liked the movie.. Val Kilmer was better looking :)
I have tried many crafts over the years.. I love them all.. if it is creative in anyway, I will give it a go. My number one craft is quilting.. I do arty things and journaly things too. I have done pottery, lino printing, metal work, woodwork and lead lighting. I knit and taught myself to sort-of crochet.
All my arty stuff is in my Flickr. They aren't really that good but I have fun doing them.
I have no idea what to write in here...
so I will start with a few things I like and dislike.. til someone tells me things that should be here that aren't.
I love the colour black ( even though it isn't technically a colour) and dark purple.. and dark blue.. and peacock blue.. and pink.. I love bling..
I love chocolate..I would love to try some from somewhere other than where I live..
I hate hate hate peanuts.. actually.. i really hate peanuts. No, i don't have an allergy to them, I just hate the smell and the taste. So my kids never had peanut butter/paste unless they ate it at friends places or they moved out and bought it themselves..!
I had a dog but she died of breast cancer. My DH has a cat that crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2014. We have another cat though, . An indoor-only cat. And DH has a bunny.
I collect unicorns.. though I have nowhere to keep them at the moment.. paper with unicorns is good. Fabric with unicorns is good.. Or cats. Or fairies. Or pansies.
I have a collection of (and am still collecting) notebooks too.. some of them will never see pen on their pages in my lifetime, but that is ok.. I like them and that is all that is important. If I had some composition notebooks, I would use them.. and use them... also use them like this Journal
My Princess (aka the granddaughter) loves pink and purple and shiny.. she is such a girly girl, which is weird because neither her mother or I are.
My DH is a 'real' bloke.. a biker-type. So if you have a spare Harley laying around, he would appreciate you sending it over..
Postcards.. I love postcards. I love postcards sent naked and written on. I love postcards of where you are at - your town, your city, your state, your country during the day, during the evening or at night - especially if it is somewhere other than where I live!!
Geocaching.. It is a new hobby but fun and finding 'caches with goodies in is even better. Geocache website
Munzee.. Another new hobby, not much different from Geocaching in that you go hunting for things, but there no 'cache', just a QR code to scan.. Munzee website
I don't really have much to put on a wishlist.. that I can think of right now anyway !
But I will give it a go..
Then there are some don't wish fors..
I also wish for everyone to be nice.. I want my partners to be nice.. I am nice, I just expect it back.
I 'borrowed' this from someone else's profile because it is relevant and not something I had thought of... thank you @BlueBirdBella .
If you live outside Australia, it's not a good idea to post seeds/plants, shells, soil/sand, tea with fruit pieces, incense, dried/pressed flowers, raw nuts/seeds, any animal products such as raw hide, feathers, teeth, bones, any wooden items. All of these sort of items will not be allowed through Australian customs and immigration. Sorry :(
