Happy Birthday to Us! It's finally our time!!
I am in Australia
, if that will be a problem!
Here's my current wishlist! I might add more if I think of them, but I already suck at coming up with ideas as it is.
Silk screen shirt-I'd love something silk-screened with an image in my taste..you can get an idea in my Wists of what I like
silk screen fabric-I am a fabric ADDICT, and LOVE any and all fabrics...it would be AWESOME to have an original, one of a kind fabric in my stash!
Japanese craft book-I love those Japanese craft books from Kinokuniya and YesAsia! I don't knit or crochet, though, so those kinds would be useless to me
fimo cane-I have an idea for a Fimo cane that I am DYING to get made, but I have less that stellar fimo skills..any takers??
Silk kimono scraps or fabrics-See previous fabric post...I LOVE fabrics, and curently, my Japanese flavored stash is pathetically low!
beads-Glass, semiprecious, sterling silver, seed...I would love to increase my stash!
Jewellery with garnet, peridot, amethyst, carnelian...I love all these stones, so anything made from them is an automatic magnet to me!
snap on ruffler foot for my Janome-I really want one of these, but keep not quite being able to justify buying one for myself
A surprise from my Wist http://www.wists.com/mmd32
I am about to turn the big old 3-4...SCARY! lol I am still waiting for maturity to hit me, though...it seems to be taking it's time! I love warm colors...greens are heaven, and oranges, reds, and purples a close second. I am a mom of two, but really, counting dh, it's three.
I am American, but stranded in Sydney, and man, do I miss home, which is usually Hawaii. I love to sew, and that always takes top priority, but I also am addicted to beads, and love dabbling in a million other crafts. I just bought a Dremel, so that is increasing my repertoire; I am taking a PMC course in a couple of weeks and OMG am I excited about that; am slowly getting together a set of supplies to make microscope pendants, too; and am sitting here staring at my smuggled over bottle of etching cream, trying to work up the nerve to mess with it (I think if I wasn't scared of leaving traces around for the kids to brush against, I might be braver), but so far, way too chicken, lol (there are some seriously scary websites about that stuff! Too bad I saw them BEFORE I started!!) I am DYING to try out lampwork glass, and maybe when I have finished setting myself up for PMC, I will get started on that!
I love art nouveau/art deco, and just joined a swap for them, too, and I love Asian style, too...I also like Scandinavian...I think the defining element of all of them is the clean, simple, but stylish lines, that attracts me the most. I also prefer things that are functional, in a decorative way.
I am a very prosaic person, in spite of beng Pisces, and decorative things just kind of end up put somewhere in a corner, and forgottten about; functional but decorative things, though, give me a thrill everytime I look at them, or need to use them!
So there you go, a small snapshot of me! If anybody has any more question, just ask, and thanks in advance to anybody who wants to send me a birthday present!!
