Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
Mom of four, but they are big kids now ... (27, 22, 18, 16).   And I have three gorgeous grandchildren - Eden, Kieran and Quinn Smiley I'm an RN by profession (finally have a job that I LOVE!) ... but I still dream of studying religion at ASU ... someday.  (I am Wiccan in beliefs, but I love Buddhism and the ideas in Hinduism - although I still have much to learn about both!)

I remember asking for and getting my first sewing box in 4th grade (many moons ago!) and learning to crochet around the same time ... I did all those 80's/90's country crafts (you know, glueing flowers and raffia on everything!) but Craftster has opened up so many new horizons for me!  I consider myself a good crafter, but I'm no artist and I admire those who have that "artsy" eye for colors and mixing media and of course, any kind of drawing, which I can't do to save my soul!

I have a wonderful boyfriend (you all can stop looking for the perfect man, because I got him!) ... and a silly, smelly dog ... and a cat that I think reads my mind and really wants to crochet and sew like me.

On most days, I think life is a grand and wonderous thing and there is so much to learn and do that I am NEVER bored!  (I won't tell you what I think on bad days ... or when I am at work!)

My Favorite Crafts To Do: sewing, crochet, simple wood/paint projects, hand sewing felt together, simple jewelry, freezer paper stenciling ... I'll try just about anything with a tutorial!
Crafts I Want To Learn: knitting, bath/beauty products, felting, polymer clay, resin jewelry

My Favorite Projects Made by Me:
12 projects can be listed here
My Favorite Projects Made by Other People:
12 projects can be listed here

Current and/or All Time Favorite Bands: Almost anything! Random favorites, in no particular order - They Might Be Giants, 10, 000 Maniacs, REM, Dresden Dolls, early Cheap Trick/Queen/Rush, anything "alternative", 70's pop and rock, 80's pop and rock ... Celtic dance tunes ... anything that gets my mojo going!
Current and/or All Time Favorite Books: My favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut ... the Hitchhiker Series ... anything about religion (Buddhism, Wicca, Christianity, Hinduism ... any religion!) History of any kind ... The Art of Happiness
Current and/or All Time Favorite Movies: The Fifth Element - but really, there are so many I like, if I could actually remember them.
Current and/or All Time Favorite TV Shows: Glee, Glee, Glee (recently became a Gleek!), New Girl, Once Upon a Time, Ghost Hunters, HGTV, The Big Bang Theory ... documentaries about anything on Netflix.

Personal Swap Availability:
Interested in Doing Personal Swaps: yes

What I Could Make For You:
Whatcha want?! Crochet, sewing, random acts of craftiness ... working with paper and wood and simple painting. If you see something I've made already, I may be persuaded to try it again! Oh, and I love freezer paper ...

What I'd Like to Receive:
Anything really - I love handmade goodies and most of the crafts I can do I won't ever get around to doing for myself ... anyone who can draw and paint is my hero!
Likes And Dislikes For Potential Swap Partners Or Just For Fun:
Things I Love:
Almost everything! Especially if it's handmade ... I love browns and deep, dark greens - earthy colors (and chartreuse is awesome right now), although I honestly love them all when used appropriately ... Random likes (looks around bedroom) stuffies, anything Wiccan/Buddhist/Hindu/religious icons, Bewitched, gnomes and fairies and other mythical creatures, cats, Phoenix, butterflies, Suns basketball, daisies, dotee dolls, things related to Wales, Cerridwen, stereotypical black hatted Witch, my beautiful children, Celtic knots, mandarin oranges, beef (I could never be a vegetarian!), dragonflies, bumble bees, beads, costume jewelry, stones and gems, pincushions, flowing long skirts, ... I'd be hard pressed to find something I didn't like!

Dislikes, Pet Peeves, Allergies, etc:
Hmmm ... not much really. Don't like goth/punk stuff (but only because I'm an elderly lady and can't pull if off as well as the youngins'!) although I'd gladly use those motifs to make something for someone else, don't wear my religion on my sleeve (but I do enjoy showing it in ways other people don't even realize), I don't like standing out in a crowd too much (big orange hats would be out of the question!), no allergies, hate intentionally stupid and/or mean people, I hate liver ... I hate doctors (but nurses are awesome) ... I am terrified of real bats ... I don't think there's any colors I don't like, as long as they are used appropriately.
