I think I'm going to burst I'm so anxious. Surely the package has to have arrived by now, TheSapphireMoon, right? Ack I hope she likes!

I received my cool apron from musiclady a couple days ago but it's been an insanely hectic last few days. So this is my first chance to get a photo taken and posted.

Action shot!


And close up of the fabric:


Brown and blue is one of my all-time favorite color combinations and I LOVE the fabric. Now I need to make some cookies or cake or something - I'm all inspired! Grin

Thanks, musiclady!

Very lovely! As a Pagan, I'd definitely like something like that - and I could see a lot of other people would as well. Good work!

I'm going to claim A2K for some notecards and maybe a surprise. Smiley

First claim this round.

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.


Crafts
*big wish* -- A robe like this one. It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one. I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style. I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors. I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- A Slanket! I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette. I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this. I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here as inspiration.

 -- A purse like the first one here or like this. I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great.

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this or this) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)
 
 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but love.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! Grin

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like.

 -- A ribbon organizer. Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my wishlist, or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
-- Sewing stuff: Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.) Thanks missgabbielynn! Leaving it up though since you can never have enough fabric and such! Wink

 -- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition or this older edition. I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!)

 -- Doodle Stitching book like this. I've never tried it but it seems like it might be fun.

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

What does it mean to have your passport scanned?
Passports now have something called RFID's in them. These can be read remotely and wirelessly and can lead to people stealing your identity information. They're also showing up in credit cards and can lead to account information being stolen as well.

Article about it here. or here (Though if you do a search on "RFID" you'll find out a ton more info - both pro and con.)

Much belated photo, but here's the additional "small" item 1boy1girl1kitty2 sent along after the turtle quilt. Fabric coasters using the same fabrics as the quilt. The package arrived like a week ago but it's been a hectic week. (They came separately because they accidentally jumped out of the first package. Wink )




Aren't they cool? I love the colors (each is unique) and the shape is really neat. It makes my brain hurt thinking of those angles! Grin

Thanks for being a great partner!

I received my coasters from 1boy1girl1kitty2 like a week ago now. This is after the poor post office tried to keep them for themselves and failed in the whole "mailing" part. I've got pics on my camera card so I'll try to post when I get home from work tonight, but I had to at least give a belated thanks because they're great. Grin

Overlooking the orange shag carpet (that sounds like a pr0n joke...) I sent today! Yay! So, The Sapphire Moon, it should arrive shortly! Grin

Whoo hoo! Grin
