Let's have fun!
By day, I'm a horticulturist, so as you might imagine anything related to plants, flowers, vegetables, trees or nature are of interest to me. I like plants A LOT.
I'm also a children's and young adult book enthusiast. I read over 126 last year. I review my favorite plant-related recommendations on my Instagram profile.
Don't feel like you must include extras for me. I really enjoy the making and exchanging of swaps. In my mind it's all about the process, learning about new techniques, and the challenge.
Special Note: Please contact me if too much time passes after a deadline and you haven't received my swap. I take pride in what I send and would want the chance to make it right.
When all is said and done, these are the types of crafts I return to over and over:
*ATCs - The ATCs I make are a paper-piecing art style.
*repurposing/upcycling existing items (I stash papers and ribbons away that I can remake into something else. General s-crap)
The Good Place
Time Period Dramas (Examples: Bomb Girls, Call the Midwife, Miss Fischer's Murder Mysteries)
I also watch a lot of documentaries. A recent "pick" was The Game Changers on Netflix. All the Olympic athletes and research convinced me to replace some of my meat-based meals with plants.
*1920s style/Art Deco motifs
*mathematics themes (such as fractals & golden ratio)
*animals, all sorts: hedgehogs, bugs, reptiles, cats/kittens
*nature theme (particularly in the style of Gwen Frostic or Japanese)
*natural wood, stone, beach glass, outer space/stars/planets
*ancient Egyptian-style art/motif
*retro games (Mr. Do!, Centipede, Tetris, Dr. Mario)
*modern games (Pokemon, Sims, Prof. Layton, Mario, Tekken Tag) Also,Togepi is one of my all-time favorite pokemon. Other favs include: Unknown and Magikarp - so useless!
*nautical theme (anchors and such)
*matryoshka dolls (aka Russian nesting dolls)
*Pokemon, Yotsuba!, Keroro Gunsou, Tamagotchi, Gundam, Squid Girl, Princess Jellyfish, Studio Ghibli, Aggretsuko
I've always been an avid reader and lover of books. I participate in a website for swapping used books, Paperbackswap . My nickname is Tamawi if you want to add me as your friend.
I never thought of myself as a book club kind of person, but I joined one. Who am I? Do I even know myself? Ha!
*It’s an Environmental Book Club. We read about beavers, birds, the climate crisis, and so forth.
I participate in a social knitting group, which meets at our local coffee/wine bar. We have a good time talking about this-n-that while we knit.
What's on my needles currently?
I'm knitting a wrap-me-up puppy. It's like a Pound Puppy toy with its own blankie.
Are you a Raveler? Then you can find me on Ravelry. My user name is Tamawi.
*stickers (to use on envelopes or in scrapbooking)
*50s or atomic era style (think sputnik)
*I like when postcards are mailed to me without being inside an envelope. (of course unless it's necessary for the swap, such as Pass-N-Paste cards)
