2/0/0

Hi! I'm Olivia, and I'm excited to be swapping ATCs again!  I'm from California (USA).  I love Nature and all it's creatures, and I am particularly drawn to those which are traditionally considered to be creepy. I love books, especially hardcover ones, and my favorite genres are horror, dark romanticism, gothic literature, and fantasy.  I'm not too fond of bright colors or pastels, although they are occasionally appropriate. Please no religion or politics.

MY THEMES:

carnivorous plants
memento mori
toads
fungi
scarab beetles
ravens
Princess Mononoke
moths
cabinet of curiosities
museum specimens
black cats
rare or odd plants
Nevermore
Medusa
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
surrealism
mummies
wolfmen or werewolves

In the past I've used a lot of pastel pencils, color pencils, watercolor, and artist pens.  I also occasionally incorporated some collage with magazine clippings. I'm not sure what I'll be using this round.   Smiley

I claim stellato_escuro for a crochet item, due 2/16/16

1/0/0

Hi! My name is Olivia.  I'm from California, USA. I love to crochet, draw, paint,and sculpt. I love Nature, plants, animals, books, and art.  I tend to like things a bit creepy, but not quite to the point of disturbing. I am married with two boys and a cat. I'm a bit picky about color, and I apologize in advance for that.  For home decor I prefer Earth tones and black. Think rustic, think forest. For clothing and accessories, I wear only dark colors (mostly black) and grey.  I dislike pastels, brights, and primary colors.  I love lace and delicate floral prints, as well as tiny polka dots. I don't really like cartoony or scenic prints. I am allergic to wool, but only for wearable items. I am very sensitive to artificial fragrances and cigarette smoke.
Thanks in advance for any claims!

The quick and easy way; anything off my OWS pinterest board : https://www.pinterest.com/laachapa/ows-board/

Sewing & Embroidery
- sleeveless Victorian nightgown- petite Lrg - simple prarie style one - mid length - (I've always wanted one of these, is that weird?)
- embroidered pet portrait of my cat Gypsy (she's black) made to fit anywhere from a 4x4 to an 8x10 frame (photo available upon claim)
- a skeleton stuffie for my son (like a rag or cupcake style doll, but not necessarily either)- something sturdy enough to play with. He's 5 so it doesn't need to be baby safe
  He's been asking for one for over a year! some examples: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927621071/ , https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099925303982/
- quilted place mats - set of 4 (is 4 still a med claim? Claim 2 at a time if you feel that is more size appropriate, and I can mix and match in pairs.) - simple is fine- if themed, I prefer nature themes (please no farm animals, fruits, or checkered prints)
- embroidered brooch or pendant - bones, skulls, insects, plants, bats, cats - check my pinterst for other themes that I like
   I have already received these from Averia
- musical pillow case (or 2) - cotton print with music notes or classical intsruments (french horn a plus!!) - it's for my teenage son so please nothing "girly" or cartoony
 
Jewelry and Beading
- gemstone jewelry (no earrings please) My favorites are labradorite, rainbow moonstone, moss agate, snowflake obsidian, onyx, golden rutile quartz, and amber.
- a beaded moth brooch similar to this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927976724/ or this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927976681/
- a themed charm bracelet: black cats, toads, fungi, Kodama, memento mori, monarchs, the night sky

Bath and Body
- essential oils natural lotion bars!  Favorite scents are lavender, lemongrass, frankincense, rosemary, and patchouli but others are fine too (no cinnamon or clove please as they are a little too strong)
- essential oils natural bar soaps (no cinnamon or clove please as they are a little too strong)
- lip balms!  I have a serious addiction, partly due to chronically dry lips!
- bath bombs! No artificial fragrances please

Knits
- Nearly any knit wearable (except headbands & earwarmers) made in my current color crush: dark forest green - fingerless mitss are a plus, but seriously anything, I love knits! - please be aware that I cannot wear wool or alpaca!

Misc
- I REALLY want these for my son https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927840489/

- Essential oils, cypress, amber, juniper berry, vetiver, rosewood

- any bead crochet books - I would like to learn Smiley
- 16 or 18 ct aida cloth - black or white - scraps 6x6 or bigger are fine!
- jewelry making pliers or wire cutters

Extras
- lego people (my 5-yr old loves them) even just parts as he's always loosing them!
