My name is Nicole, I'm 25. I live with my wonderful fiance B (nope, we haven't set a date yet lol) and our 7 month old Borgi-Heeler mix puppy(mom was a Border Collie-Corgi mix and dad was a heeler,) Kenai who is far to smart for his own good. lol I currently live in Colorado but was born and raised in Alaska. Yes, that Alaska and No, my family doesn't live in an igloo nor did I ride a dog sled, polar bear or moose to school lol I have a degree in Psychology which I learned (after the fact) is really rather useless if you don't continue on to Grad school (which I plan to do...eventually.)
As for crafting, I'm sort of a jill-of-all-trades. I like:
-Crocheting (and occasionally loom-knit).
-Play with paper (love to collage, beginning level scrapbooking, card making, plan to start ATCs soon, etc, etc, etc).
-Dabbling in assemblage art.
-Recycling and upcycling (esp with newspapers and magazines as well as plastic bags).
-Sewing (blankets, purses, pouches, sock monkeys and other fun things).
-Baking and Cooking just about anything!
-Quotes and typography.
-Take pictures occasionally. I've recently been bitten by the lomography bug and bought my first Holga a couple of weeks ago...I look forward to getting more into that.
-/love Andy Warhol and I've recently become very inspired by Tim Holtz.
-and all the other misc crafts that I didn't list.
I'm definitely interested in getting into swaps and becoming more involved with crafting in general so I look forward to getting to know everyone and seeing what amazing things you all create!
I'm sure there are a bunch of other things that I forgot or left out but my cinnamon rolls are almost ready to be pulled outta the over so I'm gonna end this right here.
