Hi I'm Kirsten. I turned 24 on 2/4. I live in Illinois, back and forth between the suburbs and Chicago. I graduated from college about a year ago, and studied German, Spanish, and International Trade. I love anything Mexico or Germany related, also love French and Portuguese. Some of my favorite things include tandem and penny-farthing bikes, Domokun, sock monkeys, rubber ducks, and Harry Potter. I am extremely disorganized so anything that organizes things in any way would be appreciated. If I can find an internship, I will be going to Europe soon.
I have recently become very interested in camping, and even tried (and liked!) winter camping for the first time.
I like having dinner parties, I love red wine, bourbon, and beer. I brew and bottle my own beer.
I spend a lot of time on the train, I'm not sure if you can craft me something for that, but I thought it was worth mentioning. Tongue
I love the colors red, green, and pink. I enjoy bike riding (especially the tandem bike), geocaching, reading, cooking, and crafting.
My allergies include:
Domokun gloves, they don't have to be these ones, if you want to go all out I love the fingertipless gloves that have the hinging mitten parthttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334093.0
bath bombs or other bath stuff
Big bag for weekend travel
Fabric scrap bucket (like the kind that hangs off the table)
Wist surprise (wists.com/wx2dzug)
Hair straightener bag (heat proof) (I have this one http://www.amazon.com/Remington-Wet-Straight-Flat-Iron/dp/B000BH3D7E
Sewing machine cover
Reusable 6 pack carriers (for beer) wood or cloth
Something that says this:
It was my idea. I own camping. If you don't make spaetzle, you can't go camping.
Non plastic beads/jewelry findings/tools
Cake/cookie decorating supplies
Glass tiles or smooth backed dominoes (for jewelry pendant making)
1" button parts
Black buttons for sock money eyes
Surprises are good here too
Fun cookie cutters
Coffee (whole bean preferred)
Strange/cool rubber duck
This is a weird one, but I collect Barbies, especially the non blonde ones, so if you see a cool one I'd love it. Nothing fancy, just the $5 ones
Anything else you want to send me
