Hello everyone! I know I'm joining late, but at least I didn't miss the swap completely! My bday was on the 6th and I turned 18.
My name is Amy and I'm going to be a college freshman in the fall at Bowdoin College, Maine. Go Polar Bears!! I live in Issaquah, Washington (just east of Seattle). I love biking, hiking, gardening, and crafting (duh). I spend tons of time outdoors in our GORGEOUS pacific northwest weather
My fave movies are Singing in the Rain, the Kite Runners, Labyrinth, Amelie, and The Sound of Music. EDIT
: I also adore anything by Hayao Miyazaki, especially Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke!!! Fave TV shows: Star Trek (The Next Generation), Big Bang Theory, Bones, Psych. Fave colors: maroon, turquoise, dark green, orange, PURPLE, cream. My style is artsy and classy, not so much cutesy or crazy.
Here's my Wist: http://wists.com/amylouwho93

I love the look of old art prints...I have a couple of these on my Wist and in my Etsy favorites.

Natural yarns or hand spun yarn--I'm so jealous of some of the skeins I see on here!
BUTTONS. What more need I say?
Jewelry findings, especially for earrings.
