Hey everyone, Im Amy. I live near Seattle, WA with my husband & 2 girls. My birthday is March 20. Last fall I went back to school for nursing. Im hoping to finish nursing school before my oldest finishes high school. There are a couple of books on my must read list at the moment. My oldest tells me I have to read Hunger Games so we can go see the movie. Then, theres the book, 50 Shades of Gray, that I saw on Good Morning America thats on the must read fairly soon list, as well. So, thats my life, school, raising 12 & 14 yo girls, trying to keep up on my reading/crafting and oh, theres karate. The girls and I also take karate together. We just tested for our green belts. Yay, that means were now more than halfway to our black belts. It also means were finally getting a clue as to which way our bodies should be moving. Its funny to think that Ive had this very same body for 39 years now and it doesnt always want to do what I tell it to. Remember when you first tried to rub your tummy and pat your head. Thats a lot like karate for me, somedays. Wouldnt give up the time with the girls for anything, though.

In general I love hearts, zippy bags, black/white/purples/blues, scarves/cowls, tote bags, Dr. Who, Harry Potter, green tea, popcorn and zentangles.

On to the list
Idea lists to get a sense of what I likeSurprises would be great.
-Wisty ideas. http://www.wists.com/DiscoQueenHighness
-Recently discovered pinterest. http://pinterest.com/discoqueenh/
-Ravelry favs. http://www.ravelry.com/people/DiscoQueenH/favorites

Specifics-Id love a shawl like this in purples, blues or ivory/off white. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/granny-shawl

- a slouchy hat in black, purple, or blues would be amazing.

- Hearts &/or balls - Id love to have a bowl of knit/crochet/sewn hearts and/or balls just to play with. Eyeballs are always a fun ball to add to the mix. Adding to the collection would be great. Ohh, balls with comic book action works like BAM! Or KAPOW! Or the like would be loads of fun. You know when the connect with the back of my husbands head. A nice double insult for him just before he picks it up to whizz it back at me.
Thanks Xandrigirly

- a sleeve scarf. Instead of a whole sweater, Id like a scarf made of one continuous sleeve with the little ribbing at the ends like sleeves have so often.

- a wristlet/zippered pouch big enough to hold 4 passports.

-pyramid zippy bag - I've always loved these - http://www.etsy.com/listing/71720220/pacifier-pyramidcoin-pursejewelry?ref=sr_gallery_5&sref=&ga_search_submit=&ga_search_query=&ga_order=date_desc&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=3&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade

- Im not sure what size this would be considered, but Id kill for one of these chickens. http://blueskyalpacas.com/patterns/knit-chickens/

- Ive been wanting this wrap since October 2009. A dark eggplanty purple or a denim color or ivory or gray would be AMAZING! It looks like its a pretty chunky yarn, so should knit up pretty quickly. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/tma/i-s-l-a-n-d-e-w-r-a-p

- A granny square scarf in blacks, whites, & purples

- tea bag pouches that button closed at the top and are big enough to hold Tazo/Stash tea bags. I prefer the pouches over the wallets. Ive seen some cool cable knit ones. I havent seen one but I think a scrappy quilted one would be amazing, too. You could even leave the edges unfinished. Several would be great so I could keep one in the car, one in my bag, maybe one in my lunch box. http://www.etsy.com/listing/56926242/catnip-eyeballs-bulk-5-sets?ref=sr_gallery_1&ga_search_query=eyeball&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=3&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title

- a necklace like this one. http://www.wists.com/DiscoQueenHighness/4b38eec0a960bfad637812084d79382c all I have is the picture, it doesnt link to anything anymore.

- leather/beaded triple wrap bracelet Thanks, Lindyv321

- Altoid tin watercolor travel paint set (or similar, something small I can take on vacation for art journaling) http://www.instructables.com/id/Movable-Pallet-Altoid-Tin-Watercolor-Set/

-- a paracord bracelet black/pink or camo/pink

- magnetic dish towels  http://www.instructables.com/id/Magnetowel-magnetized-kitchen-towel/?ALLSTEPS

- insulated lunch box one that would fit my 7x5 inch rectangle pyrex dish and let it sit flat.

- polymer clay buttons that look similar to this in sets of 3 2 inches in diameter. Love the shimmer on the top. http://www.etsy.com/listing/94225866/handmade-polymer-clay-cabochon-in-silver?ref=sr_gallery_14&sref=&ga_search_submit=&ga_search_query=&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=13&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade  or http://www.etsy.com/listing/91875340/polymer-clay-earrings-stamped-with
Thanks Xandrigirly

Happy Birthday month fellow Marchies!
My name is Cindy and my birthday was March 8 and I turned (55!yikes! but I'm very young at heart!). I'm in Reno, NV
I love horses, dogs especially, but just about any animal. I read a lot and love my Kindle and my Audible account. I spend a lot of time on my computer. I love tea.

I'm a glass artist primarily - i love the texture. I'm learning resin jewelry, spending some time beading and trying to incorporate crochet and wire into jewelry.

No alergies.

Likes: deep, rich jewel tone colors (blues, purples, deep green, etc)
       paper crafts, glass crafts, jewelry (pierced ears, dangles or posts ok), scarves, gloves (size 7)

Dislikes: frilly.... orange...


Crafts I would like:
  • art journal pages (5 x 7) to use to brighten my gloomy thoughts! (struggling lately - looking for inspriation)
  • something to believe in (*sigh*)
  • note cards
  • jewelry
  • coasters
  • eyeglass holder chain thingy
  • scarves in the blues/purples/greens - jewel tones
  • a wisty or pintrest surprise

Jewelry findings (clasps, hooks, copper wire, earring parts)
sheet copper
modge podge
resin jewelry stuff
cheap paint brushes
buttons (fancy unique kinds for bracelet and cuffs)
glass etching cream

I love herb teas (jasmine pearl is my very favorite)
dark chocolate (the darker the better)

Thank your for crafting for me!

Craftster keeps the whimsey in my life!
