Hi there! I'm Sarah from the clean, green state of Oregon. I turned 24 on October 22nd. Hmmm, about me....well, I love autumn and anything that is pumpkin/cinnamon/spicy fall flavored. Oooooh, and anything snuggly and soft. I sing, play guitar, mess around on various other instruments and write songs. I knit, sew, paint, throw pottery and scrapbook (for special occasions only, like brag books), among other things. I'm getting into housewares and sometimes refinish or reupholster old furniture. I dig old, worn vintage things, peeling paint, antique-looking anything. I LOVE color, just not really pink, though my favorites are green, purple and yellow. I'm expanding my cooking skills. My personal style is kind of bohemian-nerd rock-thriftstore chic, I guess. I adore traveling—lived in Paris for a short time (I miss it a ton), got my tattoos in Dublin (I'm Irish) and spent time in Wales—I totally get the itch to just pick up and go.
Some serious things: I care deeply about fighting the sex trade and human trafficking—my church is starting to plan safe houses for girls recovering from sex slavery and I'm involved in that. I also lead the youth ministry in my church, which makes me totally love my life :-D I can't say how much I enjoy working with teenagers. I'm going back to school next term to eventually get my Master's in social work to do counseling and art therapy.
Ideas—I'm just going to throw a bunch out there and highlighted some that would be especially grand, but I am so stoked at the prospect of ANYTHING crafted at all!!!
-A french memo board or a crafty calendar/day planner that has the days divided into hours until at least 10 pm. I have a weird schedule :-).
-A crafty frame for a dry erase board? Weird idea, I know
-Anything to help me stay organized.
Boxes, bins, bags, whatev!
-A fun apron
Cold weather accessories – I am always cold this time of year – fingerless gloves, scarves, hats, socks, legwarmers.
Thank you Cinnamonteal
-Jewelry or accessories – I really love things that are symbolic of my passions, so like an open birdcage representing freedom or open handcuffs...anything that makes a statement

-A crafty recipe holder—book, box, etc?
-Something to hold my jewelry, like a jewelry tree
