Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
From Sept-Dec 2013, I'm in Ghana doing a volunteer placement!

In the days, I'm a full time Master's in Social Work student, with several part-time jobs, including a tea seller/tea party host. Beyond that I read, write, craft, travel, container veggie garden, try to learn different languages (in progress: French, German, Ewe) and often visit local shows, arty happenings, farmer's markets, and pubs - for craft beer.

I've finished 2 novels: a YA urban fantasy and an adult post-apocalyptic romance, and I'm looking for publication or representation (whichever I can get first). I'm writing my third novel, an adult urban fantasy about an all-girl biker gang set in my hometown. I also write travel articles, and have had a few published in online magazines.

My travel "bucket list" is a biggie. I pretty much dream of seeing everything.  

As for crafting? Well I've been a true swap addict, though I'm calming a bit now. I'll try any craft once, and I have the supply stash to prove it! I still want to finish my scrapbook about my university days, and I really want to actually make some things for myself. I'm also making big plans upon my return to really start my reconstructed/upcycled bag business.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: sewing "things" (like purses/bags, craft supplies, household items), embroidery, ATCs, stationary & other paper craft, wall art, stencilling, lip gloss, jewellery (resin casting, some beading/wire, etc.), general reconstruction and upcycling
Crafts I Want To Learn: journal making/book binding, soap making, proper quilting, crochet, mosaic

Personal Swap Availability:
Interested in Doing Personal Swaps: yes
Likes And Dislikes For Potential Swap Partners Or Just For Fun:
Things I Love:
cameos, typewriters, mushrooms, phrenology heads, spiderwebs, travel-themed anything, ships, Van Gogh, zombies, trees, Super Mario 3 - in general & particularly piranha plants, books & reading & writing, Salvador Dalis art, rocket ships, skulls, foodie themes (fruits, veggies, sweets, meats), scissors/sewing machines/other crafty goodness, Alphonse Mucha girls, the Old West..... Patterns: lace, stripes (*black and white; but also others!), polka dots...... Styles: creepy (think gothy or glam, Victorian or modern), hippie (trees & reconstructed things & comfy clothing... Im really into anything recycled/reconned/revamped!), rockabilly styles (the 50s cuts in hair and clothes, the classic tattoos and pin-ups, the cowboy-without-being-a-cowboy), other vintage, and more, all with a punk-y mentality........ Colours: black, teal, eggplant purple, Kelley green, various blues, brown, grey. In general, I like darks and brights, jewel tones, and nature tones.

Dislikes, Pet Peeves, Allergies, etc:
Pastels (at least as main colours), excessive amounts of pink. Real fur turns me off a bit (but I don't mind leather, and don't mind as much if it's recycled). No allergies.
