Hi everyone! I'm Kat and my birthday was on the 12th of Jan. I live in Toronto and this is the second time that I've done a birthday swap on Craftster. Last year was really wonderful and I'm excited to do it again. I sew a bit, make videos and make a lot of music (www.playthetriangle .com
) and drawings and I'd like to learn how to crochet one day. I travel a lot for music work and it's something that I really love, but it also means that I don't like a lot of random stuff around. Practicality is key to light packing
Favourite colours: I like most subtle colours and patterns, especially into vintage looking fabrics and antique florals (but not modern flowers very often)
I love teas, all sorts of teas and especially herbal teas. I'm off caffeine for the next few months, so herbal teas are AWESOME.
I play music all over, so having some sort of thing to wrap my cords up would be amazing, or maybe a hand sewn or crocheted covers for my pedals? (these kind of pedals http://www.dv247.com/assets/products/14627_l.jpg
I love nature, birds and leaves in a realistic looking context
I love everything related to stationary and stamps, and I get super excited about ephemera I can use in letters.
healing stones and crystals
photography, polaroids, miniature detailed things
old magazines, ephemera
writing letters (+ receiving them!)
natural items like feathers, bone, leather bits (but all found naturally, not purchased)
Etsy favs: http://www.etsy.com/people/PlayTheTriangle/favorites
Wool socks! It's pretty snowy here, they're good to have. (i'm size 7.5)
crocheted crop top? I perform pop music, so I can wear more 'crazy' things on stage. Something awesomely shiny or wearable would be cool... Like maybe a big bow tie or hair bow, or some sort of fascinator or a bat-wing top or....anything? I'm a size 4/6 or small.
I like pretty earrings. Not too big or gaudy, but just pretty (if that makes sense!)
I love the
cross stitched hoops
hooplas some of you make! Something to put on my wall would be nice. Maybe with something written positively about working hard?
fabric, just regular quilting style cotton, any size or colours
Watercolour paper, any sizes or scraps of it
ink pens, drawing supplies (used is totally fine! recycleeee)
jewellery findings and interesting pieces to put together, like chains, clasps etc
Keys, all sorts of old fashioned keys big or small are super awesome.
snacks (I'm vegetarian)
wool, I just learned to knit!
embroidery hoops or small pieces so I can display
chocolate is always a winner, but please just as dark as possible (so I don't eat it all at once!)
Thanks for including me, really looking forward to it!
