Hi, I'm Malina, here in muggy Lenoir City, TN.  I live with my cat and my roommate Angel.  I'm addicted to fabric, and really need to downsize my massive STACKS.  Seriously, I have 5 large rubbermade bins and numerous boxes FILLED with fabric.  I am random in my likes.  Just see my wists... seriously, I have almost 1200 things.  I love punk things, cute things, morbid zombie and skull things, asian things, sushi, cats, many, many things...  I have a plaid addiction too...  I'm trying to find a support group, to no avail...  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook... and Audrey Hepburn... and retro pinup girls... and cherries...  and and and... old school tattoos...  and tank girl... and well, just stalk me... and James Dean... oh yeah, I'm also addicted to FFXI...

So, here is my list of little heart desires:

This one is big... aprons!!!  I have several on my wists, but here are a few:

http://www.wists.com/8011ddaeb1adac2efde5a5d2c9e7f918?q=apron cherries&offset=0
Another big one:  a lolita parasol, white
Shot in the dark:  a chef coat with a skull and cross bones on the back, but instead of bones, a fork and knife
HATS!! to quote Monty Python "People should wear more hats" here are some faves:
http://www.wists.com/587be409f6f5915941a15ea10ee3be6c?q=hat tutorial&offset=0
Thigh high striped socks!!  Or argyle!!  Or polka dot!! or skulls!! or anything else you might see or can make...
Shoes - I wear a size 8 1/2 US,  I <3 thrift store, they can be any shoe, revamped, painted, just the way they came, I don't care, I have a shoe addiction.
THIS!! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6019860  or similar
Throw pillows - I don't really have theme or anything, so maybe you can help me start one!  I'm pretty open about what you make, visit my wists for inspiration on fabrics, styles, etc etc
Jewelry - necklaces, earrings, wrist cuffs, bracelettes, WHATEVER!
bloomers!!  I love them!
 anything cherry blossom
  LONG SHOT corset - a girl can dream, right?
 a stenciled shirt, see my wists for ideas
  sock monkey - but not the traditional, I want a punk sock monkey!
  http://dirtymicrobe.com/products/how-i-roll  THIS SHIRT!
 LONG SHOT - lolita style clothing skirts, hoodies, etc
anything from my wists.  Did I mention I have almost 1200
 a cute stuffie
a resin casting kit - especially MOLDS!
 Magazines from japan, china, or korea to finish my end tables...
Buttons and patches
  I want to learn how to embroider!!  I guess I also need to learn to spell (*^.^)
  A shirt that says RDM PWN JOO or Relax... I'm a rdm
 a dress or shirt with kimono sleeves
A learn to knit kit Thanks Zero Cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Purse inspired from something on my wist
A really really really long scarf
Something spiderman or wrestling themed for my bf

OK, I went a bit overboard,  Leaves lots of room to find something though, right?

Thanks to whomever picks little ol' me!!

Oh yeah, I hate orange and sometimes yellow (depending on the other colors)

Ok, annamhudson is going to run September.  Don't worry, I'll give her the names of all the freelisters and stuff, so if you didn't get picked this round, or if you picked a whole bunch of people and didnt get picked much, you can have a free list next month!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.
