Hey all! I'm Risn and I'm from Ireland. I turned the big 21 on the 4th and I'm a 2nd year civil engineering student. I love listening to music, mostly rocky/emo stuff. I like to read a lot, mostly fantasy and history and watch lots of documentaries. Go Team Discovery Channel! I like pretty much every colour but I have a soft spot for purple. I love Monty Python, especially the Holy Grail and Ministry of Silly Walks, The Nightmare Before Christmas, the Simpsons, My Little Pony and Carebears (can you say 80s kid??) I sew, knit, stencil, make some jewellery and generally fool around with anything crafty.

And so onto my list;

1. A Pincushion. Because I'm going to choke on my pins someday. Thank you kelsorama!

2. Swap journal. I keep writing down swap details in random places and losing them. It'll be an investment if you ever end up being my partner sometime.

3. Altoid Tins. I'm so jealous of the Americans always getting to play with these so I want in on the action too. Thank you Dulcinea!

4. Messenger Bag. I loves messenger bags with lotso pockets.

5. Kilt Pins. They rocketh my socks

6. Bookmarks. I keep starting books over and over cos I lose my place Roll Eyes

7. Wrist Cuff. I always lose dainty bracelets so I want something a bit chunkier.

8. Fabric. Any kind. Any size. Send me your scraps! Thank you again Dulcinea!

9. Something wisty. I had to get it in there somewhere Wink

10. A Learn to Crochet crafty kit. I really wanna learn to crochet but my mom has no patience to teach me.
11. Nifty note paper. I always winding up sending swap partners notes on crappy ass jotter pads so I want something a teeny bit smarter.

12. Keyring/Lip balm holder

13. Anything for my hair

14. A weekender bag, any type, would be terribly smexy. And make the train home a bit more bearable.

15. A surprise Grin i love surprises,  I still ask my parents for a surprise for my birthday at this ripe old age.

A huge thank you in advance to anyone who picks me and Happy belated/early Birthday to all the November babies!

I will be 34 on Nov. 11th and am a mom of two...I work full time as a Secretary and craft in my "spare" time.  I live in beautiful Colorado, but want to live on  the beautiful plains  Undecided  I LOVE fairies and dragons and just about anything vintage of any era. I love all colors but especially the fall color palette like browns, rusts and oranges a lot.

Anyway, the list:

some knitted wristwarmers, I am really drawn to all the "fetching's" I have seen lately but any will do and cheap acrylic yarn is OK.  THANKS MISS MERMAID!!!!! You Rock, that was so fast I think my head spun....(plus I really really really wanted some of these)

A coin purse.

A small needle felting kit

a small soap making kit

I am smitten with felted pincushions

a purse (any kind, I love them all!)

handspun yarn

a crochet hook roll

A surprise :-)

Thanks to anyone who chooses to craft me an item :-) and woo hoo for November babies!
