My etsy favorites
I have been scrapbooking and paper crafting for about 7 years now.... I still absolutely love it but I am not doing it much anymore because I am loving trying new crafts! The cuter the better, although my two boys (7&9) are not the biggest fans of girlie pink and cute I do manage to fit it in as much as I can! I have also always had a n extreme love for fabric!!! I am not sure what I want to do with it but I like it! I have recently venture out of my paper crafting and into all kinds of other crafting!! I am truly a craftaholic (as I am sure most of us are). I love decorating and love it even more when my crafts tie into my decorating! My fav color of all time is pink although lately teals and turquoises are pretty high up there!
Although I will listen to everything I grew up with country and thats what makes me feel most at home!! Doesn't matter if I'm happy, fiesty, sad or mad I seem to want country from the early 90's more than anything else..
I was not a reader at all....until one of my friends would not leave me alone about the Twilight series... finally I gave in and I am totally "Team Edward" since then I have read alot... I have my next three books (one being a series) lined up so no need for new books right now! I will edit when that changes though. OF COURSE CRAFT BOOKS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!
Girlie chick flicks...at the top of the list is probably...oh who knows I can't think of one right now but if it makes you cry thats the one I like!! I would love to have The Other Bolin Daughter (I think that's the title) Or anything similar to that.. My boys really want Home Alone 1, 2 and 3...
Greys Anatomy, Private Practice, Glee, American Idol and sadly every one of the Real Housewive shows...I'm addicted!!
I am making jewelry right now but I haven't started beading mostly just chain mixture with big pendants and charms. I like big beads and such a wide variety of pendants and bauble style charms!! I am just starting so I don't have a lot yet. Thanks to swap bot friends I have a great variety of small beads and seed beads oh and findings! Thanks Friends!! I like making gifts and challenging myself to try and make things I haven't yet! So If you do any craft you would like to share with me I love it!!
I am weird about practical things while at the same time buying things in every color and because they are cute! SO I am sure I will like what you send. If I don't have a use for it I hope you are OK with me passing it on. No worries that doesn't happen with handmade or handpicked for me gifts! The only time I pass on is if it is mostly paper craft related. I am such a shop a holic that I really do have my own store... So please if I pass it on know that that does not mean I did not love it!! Also please feel free to pass on anything I send that you may not want/use etc!
Chick Flick DVD's... as much as I love them I really only have about 10. Always say Oh I should buy that and I don't
I LOVE handmade gifts!!
90's country Cd's and the new stuff too!! (doesn't even have to be new...)
Anything Holiday themed. I love to deocrate house and table for just about every holiday
I am switching to cutesy type cloth napkins!! So cloth napkins would be awesome (feel free to look at my etsy faves for inspiration)
reusable sandwich/snack bags!
Pajamas XL (I like them a little big)
Keurig Flavored coffee not a huge tea person and really don't like iced coffee
red kitchen stuff
cutesy fabric (I like it but don't know what to do with it...it's my newest obsession!!)
Fleur de lis...I love them so much I even have a tattoo!! I think it's because I was born in Louisiana
vinyl ( i would like every color cuz I'm weird like that and right now I have only bought black, red and chalkboard) going to use with my Cricut
Chocolate especially with Peanut Butter
Love learning about new places/countries and trying new things so if you have something that you believe is specific to your neck of the woods send it my way ;)
cute containers and jars (weird collection)
hard life savers any flavor
one of those cute conductor hats with fabric appliques or fabric appliques you think I would like (handmade is awesome!)
JEWELRY..handmade of course.. please just stick to necklaces and bracelets (cuz my ears are snobs and will only take sterling or gold) or clearance chains I can take apart and repurpose!
I AM A BAG WHORE (really the cuter the better)
I love cute animals
wreaths (seasonal of course)
love signs (I have a few ideas of what I like on my etsy faves.. I like aged wood or paint with vinyl sayings etc. I do love embroidery signs too! I like the ones that are on the round thing(I don't remember what they are called)
I would love some beaded serving utensils (I rcvd a cute cocktail fork..thank you!!)
Really thick wire
wood crafts... Like painted wooden blocks
Martinis tend to make me really happy also...hehe
would love a pleated purse...
If we do cards I am an SU snob... unless it is over the top cute
Anything black and white, turquoise and/or damask
Cute Fat quarters
Thread in pretty colors...I have bought the basics!
Embrodery thread ( I don't embroider but I have used it for tying up pkgs or making felt softies and pillows.
Key chains, finials, key fob supplies all sound great!
Really anything you find key to sewing (zippers, needles whatever!) I bought a sewing machine and I will learn!! (No worries I won't send anyone newbie/beginner projects..I'm way too much of a people pleaser!
ok so I can not think of anything else but if I am swapping with you and you send something I am sure I will love it
I have an awesome husband... We have been together for 15 years (married for 6 & 1/2). We have two beautiful (ok Handsome) boys 7 & 9 We are a Christian family although we do not go to church as much as we should...but hoping the church we are trying next Saturday is the perfect one for us!!
My oldest son Donte LOVES fishing!!! That is really his one true passion in life so pics of bass or fishing stuff make hime happy, fishing bait, fishing line..hooks, books/mags about fishing...old new used who cares he loves it!! For his birthday last year I completely converted his room into a fishing lodge!
My youngest, Marquise, is a video game baby! He also loves soccer. He has a wii right now so if you have any boy games you no longer need/want feel free to pass on... He likes writing and stickers too. Currently he is doing poems!
In jewelry and clothing I really like boutique style vintage. I am loving the tulle style flowers with all the crocheted sweaters.. I love to be as fashionable as I can without looking silly! I like the blingy shirts and love purses.. Lately I am leaning more towards creams, greys and blacks although I truly love all colors. I like my jewelry to have something that just jumps out and truly makes it unique or a conversation starter.
In decorating I like it all!! My kitchen is red but definitely countryish, My living is sage green with yellows and reds, I have my newest room which is light teal with all black and white fabrics and accents...LOVE IT. The boys have themed rooms that are catalog ready (or atleast thats what my friends say...decorating is one of my favorite things) My craft room is like its own store in pink with all kinds of organizing things... I am loving the vintage style fabrics with the embroidery patterns. My next project is the master and I am thinking of champagne and chocolate with of splash of green or blue... who knows. I like old window panes and keys but I really like just about anything...
In fabric crafts I really want to make aprons or purses but not sure I have the guts yet.. I am in fabric buying and hoarding mode right now ;)
I tried knitting but not really my thing although my friends make me beautiful hand knit items and my grandma just started knitting...love the washcloths and scarve she sent for Christmas...with that said I do like yarn (weird I know). I saw a really cute project that needs eyelash yarn and a few other kinds but it only calls for basically 2 yards of 8 kinds of coordinating yarn... just can't bring myself to go by yarn for two yards... although who knows I may get a wild hair..
I am just starting to make wreaths.. I want to try the old book page wreath, I also made an ornament one and am now working on a fabric one for V-Day...better hurry or it will be over.
Ok so now I feel like I'm babbling but pretty sure I could go on forever...
So I hate to say I don't like something because what if I get it and I love it...
I have never been into the whole ATC phenomenon...they are beautiful but truth is I am not going to use them. I do not use scraps... I mean really I don't even use my own scraps..I either give them to my friends, the neighborhood kids or I trash them...so please do not send me yours;(
I hate to say it but thinking no more scrapbook stuff and unless you really feel like I will love it! Ribbon is always welcome and not considered scrapbook to me...also if it is fleur de lis that also doesn't count ;) I love fleur de lis anything!! I am not mean and if that is what you have to send to me then please do it! I am sure I will find a use for it and will not rate you bad because of it I just want to grow my other craft collections and my sb collection is fully grown ;)
No zines, zentangles or dotee dolls (well maybe if they were cupcakes or something similar)
no earrings unless they are sterling or gold ( I would never ask anyone to send my real metals so no earrings please)..
No trash unless of course you have turned it into treasure
no grape flavored anything...please ;)
