Swap Name: Craft for my Person of Choice Swap

# of Flakers: 1

Ecstatic has, unfortunatly been flaked and needs and angel! She's been so nice in being extremely patient. Here's her info:

Details of your Person of Choice:
Name: Agnieszka Gutthy (my mom)
Age: 50 (just turned in August)
Gender: Female
Favorite Colors: She likes all the deep/dark colors - dark browns, dark greens, dark blues, deep reds, black.
Colors they hate: No pastels or pinks or anything that would be used at Easter or in baby showers.
Hobbies: She reads a lot - a total bookworm, like me, lol. She also studies languages, and knows like 7 of them. She loves learning and research, and if it were up to her, she'd be a permanent University student. As it is - she's the next best thing - a professor at a University.
Favorite movies/t.v. shows: She watches the Home and Garden channel a lot. But, otherwise, she's not that into TV. She loves books more.
Favorite games: Other than "forty thieves" which she plays on her computer (it's a card game like solitare) ... she doesn't play any.

Favorite singers/bands: She likes all classical music, especially Opera. She loves Cesaria Evora.

Favorite books: Oh gosh ... the list would include millions. She reads everything - except the popular paperback fiction like mysteries or romance. She hates those. She's one of those "intellectuals" who like reading "smart" books.

Any other favorites: She loves coffee. She can not function with at least 2 cups of coffee in the morning.

Please make a list of items your person of choice would like to receive:

1. Bookmarks - she's always reading up to 10 books at a time and it can be hard to keep track.
2. Laptop sleeve. She just got a new MacBook, but has no sleeve for it.
3. Checkbook cover - hers is so boring, lol.
4. Cosmetic or travel bags are always good as she's always traveling to conferences across the US.
5. A mug cozy - coffee can get hot! She has an oversized mug she uses ... not sure how that would translate for measurements. But, I could always measure it.
6. Embroidery wall hangings. She used to have this sign in her office that said:
Answers: $1.00
Short Answers: $5.00
Long Answers: $10.00
Correct Answers: $50.00
Dumb looks are still free

She lost it, though, during a move, and has missed it since. I was going to make it for her, but if anyone else has embroidery skills - that's good too.

7. Potpourri sachets - the kind you put in closets or drawers to make things smell good. She loves lavender.

8. Anything Feng Shui. She loves all that stuff. And Buddhas - she has so many of them, it's a collection at this point, lol.

9. Sweatshirts, blankets, socks. She loves wearing that stuff around the house and having a blanket on top too - she gets cold easily, for some reason. Even in Louisiana weather. She's a huge sense of humor, so funny/ironic sayings on sweatshirts or blankets are good. She'll get any "professor humor" out there online.

Things your p.o.c. would hate to receive: Anything girly or with busy flowery prints.

Does your p.o.c. have any allergies?: Nope.

Any other info about your person of choice youd like your partner to know?
Well, she's my mom. So obviously I'm biased, but I think she's the most wonderful person in the world. She's originally from Poland, but we moved to America when I was 5. And she raised me as a single mom.

So, she's a very independent, intelligent woman. Right now, she's compiling a book of essays on  literature of exile in East and Central Europe.

If you have any questions at all - I always answer PM's.   


Thanks to anyone who is willing to be an angel! I appreciate it =)
