**********I put alot of time into picking and making things for these swaps!!! When i mark sent it means they are at the post office already!*********
I started scrapbooking and card making then in November 2013 I taught myself to crochet! I still like to do all sorts of crafts but Crocheting holds a place now that I love. I enjoy new patterns and yarn!!! I love all different types sizes and colors of yarn. I also have 2 Cricut machines, have a plethora of rubber stamps, stickers and paper. I have done embossing and just found an embossing tool at a thrift shop for $1.00!!!!! My friend gave me a sewing machine but i need to find a place to set it up and then learn how to use it. **my favorite colors for me are: green (all shades), orange, blue, purple. I'm not a fan of beige or whites but am not really too picky.
I'm a mom of a little boy who btw loves crafting as much as I do. My husband is also very crafty as well with welding and upcycling!! We love animals. We have 2 dogs (a coonhound/lab/rottie mix and a shitzu/boston terrier mix) and a turtle. We live in the Pocono Mountains. I enjoy gardening. I LOVE tea and pigs. I enjoy all types of tea! I like loose leaf tea, herbal tea, black, green, roobios, oolong. I collect tea pots and mugs. I love pigs am starting to collect pig related items. I also enjoy receiving packages and snail mail. We hope to get a pig in the future :) I have Lyme disease which makes it difficult for me to do everything I like. I like cooking and I have 2 crock pots, a dehydrator and a dutch oven, a bread maker (thrift store find) and a vitamix. I love cooking with all these different gadgets and welcome recipes that your family loves. I just joined a local csa in my area and we are getting fresh veggies bi-weekly. The wacky veggies are entering in my household now like kale and rainbow swiss chard. I have pinterest boards for everything. I love candy and chocolate as well!!!!!! Since Ive had my son, Ive become a food junkie sort of. The only things i will not eat or cook are seafood (allergy) and pork. Otherwise the three of us enjoy food :)
I am a book junkie!!! I have a whole bedroom in the house that is a full library and it's overstuffed currently. I love cookbooks and non fiction. My sons room is also over flowing with books as well :) he loves all Dr. Seuss! Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man, i enjoy reading books about women and history, like Susan B Anthony and Helen Keller. I am overwhelmed with books in my library but will be willing to add more as well as swap some.
Currently we have on the DVR: Grey's anatomy, 2 Broke Girls, The Big Bang Theory, Hoarding, Honey Boo Boo, Peppa Pig, Team Umizoomi, Mystery Diners, Restaurant Impossible, Call the Midwife, Oddities, Hells Kitchen, and The Middle I am slightly obsessed with Orange is the New Black also. My favorite movies are: Wizard of Oz and Alice in wonderland. I like all Adam Sandler movies. I love comedy and drama.
We live in PA and the Garden zone here is a 5-6. Last year I had an incredible bountiful garden with: squash tomatoes basil peppers garlic, eggplant, lettuce green beans peas. I had sunflowers and lemon balm and bee balm and a whole bunch of stuff. This year i couldnt plant alot due to health reasons and we ended up with two groundhogs that ate all the tomatoes and basil and blueberries and the irish lace. The only thing i have left is my corn. I would be happy to send seeds or receieve seeds.
