31  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Crafty Detective Round 6 (Send out 4/16) on: February 21, 2010 05:40:57 PM
oh man. this thread is hard to keep up with! to answer questions...

coasters? yes!  we have some but can always use more

grow plants? no, but i'd like to try an indoor herb garden in the summer

color schemes for rooms? bathroom is red/orange.  bedroom is blue/green. living room has a gray couch and lots of nature photos, but no real scheme.  kitchen no scheme too.

what is your favorite quote/song lyric?? some already said one..."do one thing every day that scares you" by Eleanor Roosevelt. "when you get to the end of your rope tie a knot and hang on."  by....not sure. (i actually have a tattoo to represent this one!) and I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time. by Jack London.

Do you,_________, need any kind of stationary, or are you nothing but digital? I love blank note cards/thank you cards!

sewing machine? don't have one.

Would you like something along the lines of a funky patchwork skirt or quilt? no skirts, but I love quilts!

What is your favorite color combo to wear? Not just in general but bascially what colors do you wear most often or look best on you. blues/greens/earth tones and gray.

precrafted? sure!

I also realized today I talked about loving owls, but forgot robots and octopus!

Woah.  Bit of forum overload!  I started stalking and am very excited!  Some of my tastes are very similar to my partners and I have a couple of ideas I'm very anxious to get started on.

To answer questions (I think I got them all...there are a lot!)

music - I like the Indigo Girls, ani, Bitch, Vanessa Torres..lots of singer/songwriters

scarves - I don't really wear scarves....I always feel like I am choking.

blue jeans - I love wearing my jeans, though I am picky about them.  I can't really think of any crafts out of them I like very much.

bright colors - I prefer earth tones, though fiery colors are nice also. Recently gotten more into orange. Not a fan of neons.

I live in New England where the weather is frequently very cold, so I love warm crocheted/knitted things

hobbies outside of crafting - reading, playing Wii (Mario Galaxy most recently, though also sports resort), playing DS (Professor Layton!), letterboxing, camping, cooking, board games (Set, Mille Bornes, Sequence, FLuxx)

sushi related crafts? - I'm not really into these.

musicals - Avenue Q, Rent, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Guys and Dolls, Hello Dolly!

knit/crochet bags - I don't really carry a purse.  I like messenger style bags. Knit/crochet would be fine as long as it is sturdy enough...a lining or felting/fulling would be best.

kind of snack? - I like dark chocolate and salt and vinegar chips. (Not at the same time!)

would sewn replica be ok for crochet/knit? absolutely!  I like the things on my wists, but definitely don't need an exact replica!

designated craft room/area? theme?  not really...I have a desk and some drawers/stacking baskets...it's all very unorganized and is just a corner of the bedroom and a corner in the living room

ceramics pottery clay - I'm pretty sure I mentioned this in my questionnaire...hmm...yes! love it.

kit? - sure! not sure what I'd want a kit of, though.

whew!  That was a lot of catching up, considering I was only gone less than a day!

A question to ask:  Do you like candles and/or soaps/lotions/body products?  My answer....I love candles! and could use some votive candle holders. but not so much soap or lotions, as I tend to be sensitive to those.  Though foot scrubs/soaks are really nice!

This is gorgeous!  I love the way the background sky moves through several colors like the sun is setting/rising!

Holy thread pages, Batman!  I am working on my questionnaire to send in tonight, but got sidetracked by all the chatting.  Yeesh! I may have a hard time keeping up with this...
37  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Shooting Star on: February 15, 2010 03:41:53 PM
Wow.  This is phenomenal!  I never thought about using a light box like that...seriously nice work!

Oh, man.  I wasn't going to do any swaps.  Hadn't even THOUGHT about it. But I looked.  Of course I looked.  And, of course, it's crafty detective.  This is...tempting. Very tempting.  But time consuming. Though there is a looong crafting time.  oh, swaps, why are you so alluring?!?
39  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: How many WIPs? on: October 19, 2008 06:33:48 PM
Hmmm....1 star afghan, 1 non-star afghan which is technically all crocheted, I just haven't gotten around to weaving in ends/blocking, 1 (knit) sock.  and I have patterns and specific yarn (as opposed to stash yarn) for three more set projects for holiday gifts (a set of pillows, a hat, and a stuffy) though I haven't actually started those yet. I am planning on starting the pillows later tonight, however!

I would be interested, depending on the size - I can't manage a really big swap right now with the rest of life.
