12. What is your favorite way to spend an afternoon? Well if I have my kids and the weather is nice I like to sit outside in the sun and read while they run around and play.  If they are at their dads I like to do the same thing but maybe while drinking a beer!
13. Do you enjoy edibile treats as extras? If so; sweet, salty, spicy? Yes!  I like sweets and love spicy!  Hot salsa, jalepeno chips or nuts
14. Any piercings? Tattoos? Wierd hairstyles? I do have my nose peirced and 9 tattoos.  Because I have a professional job my hair is plain.  On the outside I look serious and professional but on the inside I have pink hair, full tattoo sleeves, and my lip peirced!
15. Are you a sports fan? If so, what? Also, what teams, individuals? I am an Arizona Cardinals fan.
16. What would you say your style is? Boring???  Is that a style?  I am pretty laid back and tend to wear work clothes to work, Yoga pants and at tank at home, and jeans and t-shirts when out and about.

I love stuff!  I am okay with things that are usable or not so usable.  I have a whole craft room where I display a lot of different things I have received in swaps.  I have lots of different artwork in all mediums up there from a HUGE display of inchies to hoops, to paintings to bad word embroideries.  I also display lots of interesting little knicknacks and such on the 4 bookshelves I have in there.
28. Would you be okay with 2-3 medium items instead of 1 possibly half decent large? I myself am truly happy with whatever someone wants to make me regardless of the sizes.  I know I usually come up with a long list of things to make then just go at it until its done.  It usually ends up being a mix of mediums and smalls rather than one huge thing.  Epsecially since the things I can do dont translate well into larges
29. I know we put favorite colors down but more specific, if you were to get an item for your _________, what colors would you prefer? My house is set like one HUGE great room with the living, dining, and kitchen area all together.  The walls are painted light brown and I have used dark browns, deep reds, and golds for accents.  My kitchen is decorated with chickens and roosters of the same colors.  The living room doesnt have much dcor beyond bookshelves and movie shelves.  I have shelf dedicated to Harry Potter, and one to turtles.  I would love to make one dedicated to Dia De Los Murtos with shrines and such.  My bedroom is decorated with Powell/Peralta skateboard decks featuring artwork from the 80s era of skating.  The craft room is as described above, lots and lots of stuff I love!
30. What kind of soaps do you like? Do you like citrus, earthy, goat's milk, mosturizing? I am more of a body wash kinda girl.
31. Would you rather something made for you fit a bit big (but adjustable) or would you rather not have something crafted if there could be issue with sizing? I like hoodies to be larger and shirts to be a bit more fitted.  So as for hoodies mens L/XL should work and for shirts womens XL and I prefer them to be on the longer side.
32. How do you feel about tie dye or batik? No thank you
33. Do you drink tea or coffee? Any fav. types/flavours?  I like both Coffee and Tea.  Coffee I always add flavored syrup and powdered creamer to and teas I like just about everything.
34. Scrappy or matchy matchy?  Matchy Matchy
35. How do you feel about getting items from recycled stuff? I am fine with that as long as its clean!
36. How do you go about swap research? Do you make lists, bookmark ideas, fill up notebooks, take mental notes, use post-its....or any other ways? How far will you look into your partner? Do you pour over blogs/threads etc?  I usually stalk Craftster and Pinterest/Wist.  If they have a blog I check that out too.  Then I make a list.
37. This is very broad, but if you could use 3 labels to describe your general style, what would they be? Clean, fun, and I cant think of a third!
38. How do you guys feel about getting a gift with puns of an adult nature just for the fun of it? I don't want to offend anyone, but I found an awesome saying that goes with my partner's likes. I like things of adult nature! I find bad words and sayings hilarious when they are crafted into something that looks like my granny could have done it.  Just no nudity since I have kids. 
39. I am making your something that requires stuffing. Would you be able to stuff it and stitch it up or would you prefer I did it for you? I can stuff and stich
40. If you were to receive something in a frame, any preferences about the frame? No gold frames please
41. Do you like beachy things? like shells and stuff? I like them but have no use for them in regards to the style of my house etc.
42. How do you feel about dinosaurs? Awesome!
43. If I were to make you something that you'd specified you wanted, and did it to the best of my ability - but to do it I had to learn a new craft - so it's not as good as an expert could do it - would you like it - or would you prefer me not to bother? I say go for it!!!!  Everything I have asked for or have pinned are open to interpretation.  If I wanted something perfect I would just buy it!
44.How do you feel about clothes or other things made of patchwork (collection of different color fabrics)?  Is one solid piece of fabric better? Solids work better for me in terms of clothing.  I woud like patchwork on other items though like bags and stuff.
45.When thinking of a reveal, do you want a scavenger hunt type thing?  Or is it cool if I just put little post its all over your parcel? Its up to you!

Hoooorah !!! Its my craftster one month birthday and so this is the first swap Im going to join up to !

Heres the questionnaire

1. Would you be okay with a set of smaller items in place of one large item? Yes of course xx

2. Would it be okay to send a specific(expensive)crafting kit as a large item? Id rather not have any craft stuff as I already have way too much

3. What kind of music do you prefer? Big powerful female voices, deep and meaningful ballads. Lots of hairbrush singing goes on in this house

4. Are you a planner or a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants gal? I think Im a good blend. I will take the time to think about what Im going to produce but then I just go for it. Im not frightened of mistakes because they often make the piece

5. Do you have any favorite quotes? "Every moment is a gift, look after it before you pass it on"

6. If you could be world famous for one thing, what would you like it to be? Making a mess Smiley

7. What are you currently reading? I love a good crime book, but also anything that takes me on a journey through someones life

8. What makes you laugh on TV? we dont have a tv

9. What kind of games do you like and is there an image from a game you are particularly fond of? Hmmmm Im not a massive game fan. Though my children love really little simple games. We have a great one with a crow and a bag of fruit, you roll the dice and gather the fruit - but if the dice shows up a crow he moves one step up the rung - if he gets to the basket of fruit before its all been gathered "we" lose. I love team playing for the children

10. What are your preferred letters and font for monograms? I like my full name - long personal journy to reclaim "liking it" so - Jolene much better than initials. And I like anything that looks handwritten or scripted

11. Are you an only child? I was until my father remarried, I now have a step brother and a half brother and a half sister. Im the eldest by a long shot though (and of course that makes me the best Wink )

12. What is your favorite way to spend an afternoon? If Im not geocaching with the family, I will be sitting making a mess with a variety of stuff I have hoodwinked from the charity shop

13. Do you enjoy edibile treats as extras? If so; sweet, salty, spicy? I have such a sweet tooth !!! Though Im very into healthy foods, so any recipes greatfully recieved

14. Any piercings? Tattoos? Wierd hairstyles? HAHAHA !!! All three, they are what makes me. I have a very large tattoo on my back - which is my personal exploration of the feminine, I have a dragon on my cleavage (oooerrr), I have a lip piercing and scaffolding (a bar accross the top of my ear) I often have bright pink hair, and when Im letting the bleach rest I have it dark purple. !

15. Are you a sports fan? If so, what? Also, what teams, individuals? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

16. What would you say your style is? Unique, I love bright colours, Im very much a summer wardrobe as opposed to spring. I love long and floaty and definately quirky. I like to stand out. Im not punky and not Hippy but probably something in between

17. Are you cold all the time, or do you overheat? Always Always cold

19. Are you a past thinker, present thinker, or future thinker and why? all three, Im a psychotherapist and so I aim to be that which I ask my clients to be. I would call it a fully rounded thinker, I think bearing all of me in mind (past present and future) is essential for me to make the healthiest choices in life

20. If you could travel/live anywhere, where would that be? I so want to travel, I yearn to be sitting in a tribe up some mountain far away from civilisation with a bunch of native women teaching me their crafts.

21. What did you want to be whe n you grew up? Could you see yourself doing that now? I wanted to be a teacher, and though I didnt get to that, I work with lots of teenagers and am infact mentoring an 18 year old now. I have discovered that its less about teaching and more about inspiring and being taught by the other.

22. What sorts of films do you enjoy? Any favorite movies? Would you enjoy crafts inspired by them? We dont have a tv and am not really a cinema girl

23. Would you be disappointed or happy to recieve a package comprised all or mostly of one type of craft? If it was a set that obviously went together that would be cool,

24. For jewelry, what is your preferred clasp? Lobster claw? Hook? Toggle? Something I didn't name? necklace - hook, braclets a screw end

25. Which is more revealing/useful for your stalker in terms of getting your style and wants right, your questionnaire or your wist? I dont have a wist but my pinterest is on my signature. This questionnaire says more about me personally and lets you have a window into my being - my pinterest gives you a good idea about what makes my heart sing

26. What are your favorite non-edible things to recieve if your partner chooses to send little non-crafted extras? Buttons buttons buttons - I love love love love buttons and beads, anything a bit quirky and unique
27. Do you like practical only items that have a function? Are you ok with a mix of practical and knickknack? Do you just love tons of crafted items to set out and make life pretty? I really will love anything - apart from ornaments, Im not an ornament type of girl.

41. Do you like beachy things? like shells and stuff? Great for my bathroom which is "roman bath" themed

43. If I were to make you something that you'd specified you wanted, and did it to the best of my ability - but to do it I had to learn a new craft - so it's not as good as an expert could do it - would you like it - or would you prefer me not to bother? Of course I would like it !!!! We make something and pour love out of our fingers, I would be daft to reject that kind of warmth Smiley

44.How do you feel about clothes or other things made of patchwork (collection of different color fabrics)?  Is one solid piece of fabric better? Im going off wearing patchwork, though I do like clothes that have swatches or pools of different material on them to accent them.
