Hi there! I'm Laura.
I'm a newbie for now....
I'm a 36 year-old mama to a spicy 3 year-old named Benjamin. I recently moved from Arizona to Long Island, New York and so far the winter is kicking my bum!
I have previously worked as a Montessori teacher of 3-6 year-olds but right now I'm trying to figure out my next move here on the East Coast.
Swap-related info that might be useful: * Favorite colors: dark teal/peacock/any shade of blue/yellow/green *Favorite artist: Marjolein Bastin (I love botanical/nature illustrations and watercolors) *Favorite show: Buffy the Vampore Slayer * Favorite candy: anything chocolate * Least favorite color: purple * Other random loves: hedgehogs, lemons, bees, sunflowers, the British flag/anything related to England (I'm from there), anything with a "B" or my son's name (Ben/Benjamin) on it, jokes, washi tape, washi tape stickers, stickers, dark chocolate, black currant flavored anything. My son loves fire tucks and constuction vehicles.
Washi Wishlist: * bees * hedgehogs * any shade of yellow/blue/green *sunflowers *Fall/Halloween (but not gorey/scary) * nature * any watercolor style * words * Hawaii * Britain * food. (No thank you to Kawaii/Anime/girly)
I love discovering new music. My tastes vary from pop to oldies to alternative to rock and some country. I also enjoy listening to ambient soundtracks, like "Rainy Day Cafe" or "Thunderstorm". There's a really cool website called ambient-mixer.com where you can even create your own ambient soundtrack from a massive library of sounds.
One of my goals is to become an avid reader again. I read a lot as a kid but haven't done much as an adult. I recently checked out Drew Barrymore's "Rebel Homemaker" from the library and my goal is to actually read it. We'll see!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my all-time favorite show. I rewatch it often, as well as the YouTube review videos by Passion of the Nerd.
I also got into New Girl but never finished it.
Other than that I don't really watch any other shows.
My favorite favorite thing is washi tape! I love collecting new kinds. Basically if you send me some you are guaranteed a heart! Now I just need to find a way to use them!
Crafting-wise, I am all over the place. I have supplies for just about anything, including:
The problem is deciding what to make! Sometimes I feel artistically blocked, so I'm hoping that joining swaps will help get me creating something.
I've seen a lot of people do this and I like the idea so I thought I'd try it myself. Here goes....
That was harder than I thought! Thanks for reading!
I haven't done any 1 on 1 trades yet, but I'd like to (US and UK only).
I can send:
Hit me up if interested! :)
