Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
For Swap Partners:  

I love: wall art, embroidery, knitting (I cannot knit. I've tried. It ends badly), pretty things, useful things, anything with books, Zelda, Mario, snarky sayings, Poe, Alice in Wonderland.

For you: I make soap and lotion items, but my current big love is quilting. Mug rugs, mini quilts, lap quilts and everything in between. I also do a bit of crochet and embroidery/cross stitch.

Please don't send me jewelry, I have some skin issues and won't be able to wear it! I would also prefer not to receive clothing, other than t-shirts unless I specifically asked for something.

I have three insane nephews that I love to spoil (you mean I shouldn't give them cotton candy and soda at 8 pm?). The oldest (Captain Obvious, 13) loves video games and movies and I can still get him to snuggle with me if I'm playing a computer game because he wants to sit with me and watch too. The middle child, (Smartie, 11.5) loves games, puzzles, and projects and is more sarcastic and clever than any child should be. He likes to cross stitch, embroider, and sew. The youngest (Cutie, 9) loves cars, video games and tv (he's turning into a little mini me of his oldest brother). He gets into more trouble than his two brothers combined.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: Cold Process Soap, other Bath and Body, Crochet, Sewing, Cross Stitch/Embroidery, Quilting
Crafts I Want To Learn: Needle Felting

Lincoln and Child's Pendergast series is the best and my favorite series I've discovered in the past few years is the Iron Druid series by Kevin Hearne I HATE overhyped, poorly written crap like Twilight, and The Memory Keeper's Daughter

What I Could Make For You:
Soap and bath products, crocheted bags, baby booties, calorimetries, dishcloths, squares, etc. Sewn purses, bags, skirts, baby clothes, curtains/valances, aprons. Quilted wall hangings, mini or lap quilts, mug rugs, quilt squares.

What I'd Like to Receive:
Knit items, crocheted items, reconstructed clothing, purses, bags, artwork, embroidered/cross stitched something to put on my wall, wallhangings in various forms, decorative paper crafted/collaged/altered book items, anything with Zelda or Mario, stenciled shirts with some of my fave book/movie/tv show quotes
Likes And Dislikes For Potential Swap Partners Or Just For Fun:
Things I Love:
I love aqua and gray together. I'm also a big fan of orange, and any bright colors really, as long as they are tempered with some crisp, clean white or a nice light gray. I like Polka dots, gerbera daisies, modern floral prints (don't care for calico or 70's style flowers), stripes, purses--especially really big ones and clutches. Black and white floral anything! My new favorite color palettes are turquoise or aqua, navy, and orange. Also gray, turquoise or aqua, and orange.

Dislikes, Pet Peeves, Allergies, etc:
Skulls, the colors black and hot pink together (especially in combo with skulls), mohair and similarly fuzzy/wispy yarn, necklaces, receiving things that are covered in pet hair or smell like cigarette smoke. The phrase "it is what it is" and everything surrounding the ridiculous extravaganza that is Twilight.
