About Me

IMPORTANT ADDRESS INFORMATION!! If you get me as a partner and the swap=bot system gives you a street address on Hull Avenue, PLEASE CONTACT ME. That is my OLD address. I updated my profile when I moved but for some reason a couple of swaps were given the wrong address. Thanks!

Hmm, about me... I hate these. I'm a 38 year old California girl, lived here all my life and sometimes I want to leave but most of the time I can't imagine actually doing it. I do several kinds of embroidery, I scrapbook and do a few other crafty things with various levels of skill. I love hockey, especially the San Jose Sharks, and I've been playing for the past 6 years.

I love color- pink, chocolate brown, lime green and any combination thereof. I love goldenrod and maroon and deep blue. Fall colors are probably my favorite "color family".

I love the magic of the Christmas season, hate the commercialization. I am staunchly "No Christmas Before Thanksgiving" with very few exceptions. I love the lights and the music and the countdown to Christmas, but I think I prefer Christmas Eve to Christmas Day for the whole "magic" of it all. I'm Christian, so I'm into the whole "Birth of the Savior" aspect of Christmas, but I'm not obnoxious about it. I have my beliefs and I respect that others have theirs.

My swap ratings will be built slowly. I think swapping is fun but I don't have a lot of time for it so I will always choose my swaps carefully so as not to "bite off more than I can chew", so to speak.

Favorite Crafts

I can sew, but I prefer smaller hand projects to fussy machine sewing requiring lots of careful piecing. That said, I also quilt, mostly baby quilts, though I've been working on a quilt for my bed for the last 9 years (I'm crazy and quilting it by hand, and keep putting it down for long periods.

I do several kinds of embroidery- cross stitch, blackwork, and surface embroidery (which encompasses too many techniques to list here) My mom taught me to cross stitch as a way to get me to sit still when I was little, and I've branched out from there, and do very little cross stitch anymore. I also knit- mostly hats and blankets for baby gifts. -Scrapbooking

Favorite Television

Friends, Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, Project Runway, pretty much any "Top 100 ________" on VH1

Favorite Books

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. Seriously one of the best books I have ever read. I also like just about anything from Torey Hayden and Mercedes Lackey. And the Harry Potter books, of course...

Comment: Well.. 2 years late... but your parcel reached me =) I'm happy to get rid of this 1, you know that. I feel really spoiled... thanks for reading my profile and sending me Sakura pens, I love them... and ALL the extras are love too. Thanks!
Response: I'm definitely happy too. I'm not a flaker, so having done it and having that 1 were kinda sucky for me, not because it looked bad, whatever, but I FELT bad. I'm glad you like everything.

Comment: We got the card today! Thanks! Brenna loves it...the little girl on it even looks a little like her :)
Response: I'm glad it finally got there, I was getting worried. Also, I'm glad she loves it. I'm generally hesitant about using a sticker as the main focal point, but I was really pleased with how it turned out.
