i'm a vegan so i obviously don't like items portraying or alluding to animal abuse. i'm a non-smoker, so smoke fumes aren't my style either.
i'm never expecting anything, but if you happen to have extra tea, cat toys, dog toys, embroidry floss, or embroidery supplies in general...BUT MOST OF ALL, i would love a paper crane made by YOU!!
EMBROIDERY! i embroidering constantly, atcs, making stencils, and especially 3D papercraft, really i'm up for any new project that makes me think from new angles and perspectives, and get my brain in gear
