I claim FinRaziel for needles, yarn and *something* crafty. I can decided officially if you officially need an official answer. This is my 1st claim/ 0 Sent/ 0 received
HI! My name is Nicole. I live in Wisconsin, USA. I fit almost every Wisconsin stereotype..I LOVE cheese and microbrewed beer. I'm allergic to ALPACA!!! Also to mildly allergic to dogs, bees, the color PINK (yuck!), people that litter, most metals and synthetic fragrances. Cigarette smoke is nasty and gives me migraines.
Think of all the craft supplies you could buy if you quit smoking!! My favorite colors are food colors: olive, mustard, eggplant and I also wear a lot of black and navy. I don't like pastels. I am married, have three boys (10,6,3) and my dearest kitty, Izzy, recently passed away. (I'm devastated, she was my little love.) I have a big goal for 2011; I'm trying to knit 500,000 stitches. That is a lot for me and I don't think I have enough yarn. I also have plans for my first sweater.Crafted Wishes: NEW
