I don't know how you did it sixty4, but that pin is perfect!
132  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Crafty Detective Rd. 7 (signups Jan. 31 - Feb. 14, 2011; sendouts Apr. 14, 2011) on: March 07, 2011 10:19:39 PM
Darn it!!  I just spent about a half hour answering questions, only to have my finger accidentally hit a button causing all of my answers to disappear into oblivion!

Here it goes again:
1. Would you be okay with a set of smaller items in place of one large item?(Valsped-Pg.28)
Absolutely.  I like the idea of a collection of items.

2. Would it be okay to send a specific(expensive)crafting kit as a large item?(jadeye-Pg.35)
Yes.  I don't know what kind of kit anyone would craft for me, but I'd be super excited to receive one!

3. What kind of music do you prefer?(SevsOnlyGirl-Pg.44)
Mainly easy listening/soft hits.  I also like Panic! At the Disco, Cute is What We Aim For, and I love the Vitamin String Quartet - they do instrumental string versions of modern albums (I can't get enough of the Panic! music by the String Quartet)

4. Are you a planner or a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants gal?(SevsOnlyGirl-Pg.44)
I plan stuff in my head.  If there's something really important that I need to remember (like call about getting my W2's), I will write a reminder on the palm of my hand.  If there's something I need to list and can't keep track of it in my head (like my ideas on what to make my swap partner), I will list it on paper.

5. Do you have any favorite quotes?(S is for Summer-Pg.51)
I enjoy Biblical quotes and quotes that make me think.  I am a fan of both Mark Twain and Dr. Seuss quotes

6. If you could be world famous for one thing, what would you like it to be?(S is for Summer-Pg. 51)
Being super rich and super nice

12. What is your favorite way to spend an afternoon?(blushingbluegrass-Pg.61)
Relaxing with a good book or a good show

13. Do you enjoy edibile treats as extras? If so; sweet, salty, spicy?(gamemom42-Pg.67)
Delicious!

16. What would you say your style is?(SaralaAnne-Pg.74)
I posed this question to my mom and sisters.  Their responses were, 'casual comfy,' 'classic,' and 'complicated eclectic.'  I would say that all three of these are accurate descriptions.  To sum it up, I'm a bookish nerd - not a super duper nerd, but pretty darn nerdish nonetheless

17. Are you cold all the time, or do you overheat?(suereal_Pg.77)
I tend to be cold more often then hot (unless it's 90 degrees + outside)

18. Is it too late in the season to send outerwear?(Ekkagirl-Pg.76)
No.  It's still cold in the mornings and I often find myself scraping ice off the windshield before I can head to work

19. Are you a past thinker, present thinker, or future thinker and why?(Bugaboo1-Pg.78)
A bit of all.  I wouldn't describe myself as any one over the other, but I would describe myself as a definite thinker.  Some people say they are 'down to earth,' I on the other hand seem to be  more 'up in the clouds.'  I'm constantly thinking any variety of random thoughts that often cannot be defined as past, present, or future

20. If you could travel/live anywhere, where would that be?(goktrose-Pg.78)
I would absolutely love to go to Europe and travel by train (complete with sleeping cars!)

21. What did you want to be whe n you grew up? Could you see yourself doing that now?(lindzyt-Pg.79)
An astronaut.  I could still see myself doing it and would absolutely love to go into space and explore while being able to see earth from afar

22. What sorts of films do you enjoy? Any favorite movies? Would you enjoy crafts inspired by them?(JaquelineD-Pg.82)
The one film that I would like a craft inspired by would be The X-Files

23. Would you be disappointed or happy to recieve a package comprised all or mostly of one type of craft?(S is for Summer-Pg.88)
I would be happy.  How could I be disappointed by something that someone put so much thought into?

24. For jewelry, what is your preferred clasp? Lobster claw? Hook? Toggle? Something I didn't name?(xandrigirly-Pg.88)
I like the lobster claw, but I'm not too picky

25. Which is more revealing/useful for your stalker in terms of getting your style and wants right, your questionnaire or your wist?(NotKnit-Pg.88)
Either, or.  I think both do a good job of getting my style and interests across (at least I hope they do and I'm very sorry if they don't, stalker!

26. What are your favorite non-edible things to recieve if your partner chooses to send little non-crafted extras?(gamemom42-Pg.89)
Books, fabric remnants, neat pens, ideas

27. Do you like practical only items that have a function? Are you ok with a mix of practical and knickknack? Do you just love tons of crafted items to set out and make life pretty?(Bugaboo1-Pg.90)
I'm more of a practical person, as in I don't really have any desire for things like dolls (unless they were X-Filey!).  In my mind though, things like wall art and room decor are practical.  I'm not entirely sure what one might consider a knickknack (a can opener?), but I do love gadgets!

28. Would you be okay with 2-3 medium items instead of 1 possibly half decent large?(mom2em-Pg.92)
Yes!  I'd rather have a small I like than a large I dislike

29. I know we put favorite colors down but more specific, if you were to get an item for your _________, what colors would you prefer?
Bedroom: The color scheme is sage and beigish tan
Living/Front room: The color scheme is a grayish polar blue and the beigish tan


30. What kind of soaps do you like? Do you like citrus, earthy, goat's milk, mosturizing? (EkkaGrrl-Pg.98)
I like clean scents like fresh cotton, or earthy like pine/seascape/rainfall.  I could use the extra moisture and I don't think I've ever had goat milk soap, but I wouldn't mind it at all

31. Would you rather something made for you fit a bit big (but adjustable) or would you rather not have something crafted if there could be issue with sizing?(sloth003-Pg.100)
I'm with those who say jacket/sweatshirt, I wouldn't mind a big fit, but with other clothes, I've been trying to obtain more of a well fitted look lately

I think that answers everything that I have not yet responded to.  I hope this info is helpful  Smiley

I'm still here and I see have a bunch of questions to answer! I'm in my way home right now and will respond with the answers when I get there.

Also, I started on my medium this weekend. I had to put it on pause when I remembered about my cousins baby shower. Thankfully I was able to make two burpcloths and a baby blanket in time. Now I'm ready to get back to my medium!

So, I seem to have gone a craft bender this weekend, and technically, I could send tomorrow.  But I won't, obviously.  I will just spend a month making more!

Good lord, the box will be huge.

No, seriously, I stayed up all night watching old tv on my computer and am about 3/4 of the way done with teh large, and the plan for the day is to sit in front of my tv and finish it.  I have no idea how this has happened.



Wow!  This is super impressive!  It sounds like your stalkee is going to be overwhelmed with all kinds of crafty delights!  I must say, I am a bit jealous...I haven't even started on a single item yet (unless you count thinking about it)!

Sports - not really into any.

My sister was over last nigt and after talking things over with her, I may go an entirely different direction for all my items. I'm just trying to decide if it's the right direction to go for my stalkee...

Also, I had her look over my wist to see if my stalker will be able to get a good feel for me. She laughed and said that my wist portrayed me as an earthy animal person, lol. I am not an animal person and as for earthy, I'm not exactly that type, but I do really like natural colors and the look of barren trees and birds. I hope this is helpful to my stalker!

Ooh, I love the edible treats question.  I've been thinking of adding some to my package, so it'll be good to know what my stalkee likes!  I personally have been on a Gobstopper kick lately.  They're so delicious!!  I can't do anything too spicy, but I do like both salty and sweet, either separate or together  Wink.  I'm with everyone else and like the idea of snacks that aren't regionally available here!

Tattoos/piercing/wildness: I'm pretty out of touch with my wild side.  I just have a single piercing in each ear. 
137  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Crafty Detective Rd. 7 (signups Jan. 31 - Feb. 14, 2011; sendouts Apr. 14, 2011) on: February 24, 2011 04:20:27 PM
Ok, I'm gonna get some answers in quick - before more posts pop up to be read  Smiley.

Now let's see what questions I remember.

Monogram: SSEB. I enjoy typewriterish fonts, fonts with serifs, and nicely scripted fonts (although they don't really work for capital letters).

Games: I like puzzle games, dislike monopoly (it takes forever!), and recently played and loved the Michael Jackson dance game on the wii.

TV: Just finished the first four seasons of 'Psych' on Netflix. Some of the episodes were so silly! Current TV that I like: 'Glee,' 'Modern Family,' and 'V.  And of course, as I mentioned o. My questionnaire, X-Files is my fave!

Books: Similar to what someone else said earlier, I cant let myself start 'reading reading' book right now, otherwise I'll become to engrossed to craft. I am however, listening to 'A Traders Tale: Full Share.' It's a podiobook that I listen to through iTunes while heading home from work. If anybody is interested, podiobooks are free audiobooks. I've listened to quite a few and would be happy to recommend some to anybody interested (sorry, I just love the whole concept and am liable to go on and on)  Grin.

Family size: I am the oldest of three girls in a pretty close-knit family.

Hope this info is helpful!

To my stalkee: You still have me stumped. I have an idea for your large, but am not sure of the small and medium, nor the extras I was hoping I would include. To be honest, I want to send you a package that will knock your socks off, I just have no idea what that will be yet...

I seem to have caught whatever is going around...it's just providing me more time to think as I lay in bed though.  Plus, I'm pretty sure that I've been dreaming about this swap, so hopefully something super good will come to me in my sleep (and I'll be able to remember it when I wake up!).

Oh, and to my stalker: I did add more items to my wist while bundled under the covers yesterday.  I just hope they are helpful as I cannot for the life of me remember what it is I added!
139  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Crafty Detective Rd. 7 (signups Jan. 31 - Feb. 14, 2011; sendouts Apr. 14, 2011) on: February 15, 2011 06:47:39 PM

I have to admit, I was nervous at first reading the questionaire, but then I went into the wist, and got so excited!!! Now, I have too many ideas Smiley I'm going to think things through, then restalk in the morning.

Lol, I'm having the opposite experience!  I was super excited after reading the questionnaire, but after looking at my partner's wist, I feel completely unsure...time to start some hardcore stalk stalk stalking!!   Wink

Hot dang!! While reading my partner's questionnaire I literally had to keep checking to make sure I wasn't reading my own. Not only do we have very similar tastes we even used some of the same wording!

The organizers are quite impressive! Thank you so much for putting this giant swap together and pairing us up so well!
