Woo! I'm in the swap. Here's my answers to the second set of questions.

1. Would you be okay with a set of smaller items in place of one large item? yes
2. Would it be okay to send a specific(expensive)crafting kit as a large item? There arent really any crafts I would like to learn to do, so a kit wouldnt be ideal for me
3. What kind of music do you prefer? Too many kinds, my favourite artists are Fleetwood Mac, Florence & the Machine & I:Scintilla
4. Are you a planner or a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants gal? Planner
5. Do you have any favorite quotes?
The hardest thing in this world is to live in it Buffy
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain. Emily Dickinson
6. If you could be world famous for one thing, what would you like it to be? Scientific discovery
7. What are you currently reading? Song of Fire and Ice Saga (slowly)
8. What makes you laugh on TV? Archer, Community

11. Are you an only child? no
12. What is your favorite way to spend an afternoon? Hanging with friends
13. Do you enjoy edibile treats as extras? If so; sweet, salty, spicy? Yes, and all three
14. Any piercings? Tattoos? Wierd hairstyles? Getting my first tattoo on Tuesday! No piercings or weird hairstyles
15. Are you a sports fan? If so, what? Also, what teams, individuals? Not really
16. What would you say your style is? Laid back
17. Are you cold all the time, or do you overheat? Depends on the season, but usually cold
18. Is it too late in the season to send outerwear? Nope, last week we hit -50! (Celsius)
19. Are you a past thinker, present thinker, or future thinker and why? Kind of all three at times I guess, but mostly a present to moderate future thinker, I like to plan out my life for chunks of a month or so at a time, but I rarely think of my distant future, and I certainly try not to dwell on the past.
20. If you could travel/live anywhere, where would that be? I want to travel the world, but mostly I want to see asia, as for where I would want to live, Im quite fond of Canada, Id like to stay here.
21. What did you want to be whe n you grew up? Could you see yourself doing that now? I wanted to be a psychologist, and now I cant see myself doing that at all, even though I have pursued psychology, I like more the research aspect of it
22. What sorts of films do you enjoy? Any favorite movies? Would you enjoy crafts inspired by them? Love movies, especially sci fi and other genre movies, my favourites are Star Wars (original trilogy) and Princess Mononoke
23. Would you be disappointed or happy to recieve a package comprised all or mostly of one type of craft? Thatd be fine
24. For jewelry, what is your preferred clasp? Lobster claw? Hook? Toggle? Something I didn't name? im not huge on jewellery
25. Which is more revealing/useful for your stalker in terms of getting your style and wants right, your questionnaire or your wist? Probably my pinterest and questionnaire in combination
26. What are your favorite non-edible things to recieve if your partner chooses to send little non-crafted extras? Not sure, but I do love surprises, hence liking this swap, the most surprising of all swaps
27. Do you like practical only items that have a function? Are you ok with a mix of practical and knickknack? Do you just love tons of crafted items to set out and make life pretty? I think I prefer practical, but I also love knickknack, Im just running out of room to display all my cool stuff! Id be happy with either
28. Would you be okay with 2-3 medium items instead of 1 possibly half decent large? Sure, do what you find the most comfortable
29. I know we put favorite colors down but more specific, if you were to get an item for your _________, what colors would you prefer? Im really not that specific about colours, I just dont like yellow or pink, all other colours are fair game
Kitchen:Living room:Craft room:Bedroom
30. What kind of soaps do you like? Do you like citrus, earthy, goat's milk, mosturizing? Wouldnt really like to receive soap related stuff
31. Would you rather something made for you fit a bit big (but adjustable) or would you rather not have something crafted if there could be issue with sizing? A bit big is fine
32. How do you feel about tie dye or batik? Not interested
33. Do you drink tea or coffee? Any fav. types/flavours? Love tea, especially black teas, and one of my favourite flavours is Vanilla, I had this earl grey vanilla once that was amazing
34. Scrappy or matchy matchy? Either? I dont really know what that means
35. How do you feel about getting items from recycled stuff? Thats fine
36. How do you go about swap research? Do you make lists, bookmark ideas, fill up notebooks, take mental notes, use post-its....or any other ways? How far will you look into your partner? Do you pour over blogs/threads etc? I make a word document with all my ideas and links and pictures and just kind of narrow down from there
37. This is very broad, but if you could use 3 labels to describe your general style, what would they be? This ones too hard, Im going to skip it, haha
38. How do you guys feel about getting a gift with puns of an adult nature just for the fun of it? Nothing too overt, but adult themes are fine, like Im not overly offended by swear words, but I dont love adult themes of the sexual nature
39. I am making your something that requires stuffing. Would you be able to stuff it and stitch it up or would you prefer I did it for you? Id prefer it already done
40. If you were to receive something in a frame, any preferences about the frame? nope
41. Do you like beachy things? like shells and stuff? no
42. How do you feel about dinosaurs? Love them
43. If I were to make you something that you'd specified you wanted, and did it to the best of my ability - but to do it I had to learn a new craft - so it's not as good as an expert could do it - would you like it - or would you prefer me not to bother? Id still love it, thats a great thing about this website, it really gets you to try new styles of crafting
44.How do you feel about clothes or other things made of patchwork (collection of different color fabrics)?  Is one solid piece of fabric better? Im not sure, sounds kinda cool
45.When thinking of a reveal, do you want a scavenger hunt type thing?  Or is it cool if I just put little post its all over your parcel? Either or, or something completely different

You must have a pinterest/wist of at least 75 items, the majority need to be crafty please.

I really would like to join this swap, but is it really a must that I have pinterest or wist???

I hear ya had an idea but it died of boredom...

It really helps your partner with the stalking. Do you have anything similar that's stalkable and filled with crafty inspiration?

It's really not that hard to rack up 75 pinned or wisted items once you get going. The hard part is to stop Grin

Stalking this thread everyday!  LOL I need a hobby.  Wait... I have a hobby, I just need someone to craft for!   Grin
