Hello! I'm Ava. I'll be 25 on the 24th. I spent last year's birthday far away from friends and family, but this year will be different! I plan to craft until I can craft no more, and I'll do the same for some of ya'll.

About me: I live in Tennessee. College grad. I spent a year in South Korea teaching. I like travel, music, landscapes, flowers (not the old lady kind!), swallows, owls, and my Corgi. I like bold colors and earth tones too. I'm into just about every craft there is except painting on an artsy scale.  I prefer functional items over knicknacks.

Random themes that might help: The Golden Girls, 1776 (1970s musical), history, reading, Firefly/Serenity, Bones, The Vampire Diaries (I can't help it!), frugal or green living

Thanks to anyone who claims me!

Hi! I'll be 23 on March 21st.

About me: I graduated last August with my bachelors in Theatre Education. I want to teach art or drama eventually, and I currently work in an elementary school setting. I am also an active feminist.

I dabble in a TON of different crafts including: ATC's and inchies; Mod-podge, basic sewing, painting, embroidery, jewelry, polymer clay, and occasionally woodworking.

I'm really into woodland creatures (deer, owls/birds, squirrels) and I've been told I dress like a "grandmother" which I usually take as a compliment.

My favorite colors are oranges, mustard yellow, purples, teal, and gold. I'm NOT a fan of pastels, neons, reds or silver. I like vintage floral patterns A LOT.

I currently live with my boyfriend of three years. He also has a March birthday, and he is into all things sci-fi, legos, Batman, D&D, and things that show support for facial hair. (haha).

Hi.  My name is Jamie.... 43 years ago on March 15th, the world was introduced to another crafter.  I'm a wife of a retired soldier, mother of 6 (gave birth to 3 and inherited 3 when I married my husband), grandmother of 4 (plus one angel baby).  We have a cute little Sheltie pup named Missy and a handsome fat cat named Chewee. I'm a full time RN at our local rural hospital and love what I do.  I'm a big kid at heart... still love to watch cartoons, listen to old Disney songs, play with dolls (newest obsession is Pullip's).  I love thrift store shopping and yard sales.

I dabble in most crafts.:  scrapbooking, sewing, crochet, embroidery, cross stitch, photoshop... I've never learned to knit, but that is a goal this year...  

I love all things Disney (especially Little Mermaid), Lost, Glee, Smurfs, Harry Potter, Twilight, Little House on the Prairie, all Musicals like Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Sound of Music, Wizard of Oz, Mama Mia... etc....

I live in Horton, KS... small town in the Northeast corner of the state.

I love all colors (except grey) but I'd have to say red, yellow, orange & green are my favorite.

Thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!!

I'm Jenn and on March 14th I'll be turning 33. I married my high-school sweetheart and we have a precocious 5 year old daughter, a dog, a cat, four hedgehogs and two Russian tortoises. Basically it's like running a small zoo in our house and I do count the five-year-old as one of the wild animals Cheesy We live in Texas, near Dallas and are expecting our second child in September.

I run a local Harry Potter meetup group and am obsessed with all things Harry Potter. Crafting is one of my favorite hobbies as is photography. I work a lot with polymer clay but also, lately, with making miniatures and some jewelry. I run an Etsy shop that frequently overwhelms me and which has been sadly neglected this year. One of my favorite things to craft is miniature potions bottles - I design the labels in Photoshop based on vintage labels and then have fun deciding how to fill each bottle.

My daughter has Cystic Fibrosis and Common Variable Immune Deficiency. She gets sick very easily. So while we don't have any allergy restrictions I absolutely cannot accept any crafts or items from the same household as another CF person or from a house where anyone has been sick in the last two weeks.

Dr. Seuss inspired drapes/valance

Anything well crafted that's Harry Potter related is also a good bet Cheesy I'd love a Hufflepuff knit scarf bag (THANK YOU AVABROWNEYES!), like on my wist, or a cool t-shirt like the ones pictured on my wist.

Heloo.  Im Kristin from Glendale, AZ.  I turned 35 on March 1st and my husband says I am old  Sad.  What does he know!  Cheesy My household is currently full with 2 dogs and the hubby.  One of the dogs, is a 5 month old Great Dane who is getting into everything! I am an avid reader and addicted to way to many tv shows.  My goal for this year was to always have some sort of crafty project going when ever I was in front of the TV.and of course exercise more! Yeahumdoing good on the crafty thing Wink
I get obsessed with different projects for a time and then move on to something else.  Crafts that I have done include:  painting, drawing, embroidery, felt applique, cross stitch, glass etching, glass painting, face painting, shrinky dinks,I know there is more.
While my husband managed to sew living room drapes for our house, the sewing machine and I have an ongoing battle of wits. I might have lost the first couple of battles, but I will win the WAR!  I havent really done any jewelry and I am working on the polymer clay thing.
I really like: dragons, fairies, asian inspired art, froggies, butterflies, dragon flies.
Colors: Blue, Red, Purple, Black, Silver, Gold.  Prefer strong colors, will accept pastels in a pinch, not a huge fan of neon.  There isnt a lot that I dont like except not a huge fan of the 1970s color pallet of burnt orange, pea green, harvest yellow.bleh.  Not a big floral fan either.
Other Loves: Glee, Greys Anatomy, True Blood, Bones, Supernatural, Twilight, love musicals (including High School Musical 1,2, 3), Nora Roberts, Laurell K Hamilton, most things Fantasy or Sci-fi (Firefly/Buffy-think Joss Whedon).
I went on a Wisty spree and added a bunch of general stuff for ideas.  No allergies!
