Favorite Music

I'll listen to just about anything but am particularly fond of goth, '80's, industrial, EBM and darkwave. Some bands that I adore include The Cure, The Cruxshadows, Covenant, Apoptygma Berzerk, Front 242, and, for some variety, The Gaslight Anthem, Frank Black and the Catholics, Rise Against and Papa Roach. I've also been known to blast Adele when in a bad mood. ;)

Favorite Books

My all time favorite is the Kushiel series by Jaqueline Carey. Otherwise? Anything fantasy, sci fi, or otherwise interesting. I'll read just about anything but romance (unless it's got something unique about it). I'm hooked on high fantasy and medieval/Renaissance intrigue.

Favorite Crafts

I knit, crochet, write, bind books, sew and do just a little bit of everything but scrapbook, truth be told. Although I'm looking to start art journaling in 2014, so any little bits and bobs or hints and tips to start that would be lovely! I'm also getting into paracord jewelry, so any bits of rope, paracord or buckles, bobs and bits for that are great!

Favorite Movies

I'm a sucker for anything dark and dramatic. Or completely absurd and hilarious. Old movies are great, too. Actually, anything but slapstick "stupid is funny" type movies (think Will Ferrell - sorry Will!) type movies. My favorites of all time? High Plains Drifter, Last of the Mohicans and Dances with Wolves.

Favorite Television

Law and Order: SVU, Mad Men, Orange is the New Black, Supernatural, anything by Investigation Discovery, How I Met Your Mother, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Judging Amy, Third Watch, The Simpsons. The Borgias, the Tudors.

About Me

I have been a professional writer since 2006, with my work appearing on various websites including Livestrong.com, TypeF.com, Salon.com, Dogster.com and The Daily Puppy. A Jill-of-All-Trades, I split my workday as a writer, humane society advocate and on-call vet tech. What little free time I have goes into pinup modeling, advocating for self-acceptance, knitting and trying to maintain my haunted house (really!).

Allergies and Allergens

I am allergic to shrimp, hemp and ibuprofen.

I have cats and dogs in the house (and an outdoor smoker). Although I try to make sure no animal hair gets on things, sometimes it's unavoidable. Please consider it an extra little gift, and if you're allergic and are partnered with me, please let me know so I can be extra vigilant about crafting in an animal-free environment.

Random Things I Like

Coffee Chocolate Animals of ALL kinds (except cockroaches. Please don't send me anything roach related, cool as some stuff may be.) The colors purple, black and any dark jewel tones 1950's retro stuff, pin-up, burlesque Anything spooky or dark. Dia de los muertos stuff Hair accessories - currently growing out a pixie cut! Nail polish of all kinds Warm, comfy socks (my feet are always cold)

PLEASE READ!!!!

Things have been lost, delayed or damaged due to the serious winter weather we've been having here. If something I've sent comes to you late, damaged or in otherwise unsatisfactory condition, please let me know before rating so I can keep track of whether our drop box is having issues or whether it's my Post Office. I really appreciate it! Thanks!

Jealous Housemate Surprise Swa

I signed up for the "Jealous Housemate Surprise" swap - if you're my partner, this is the section you're looking for.

I'm swapping for my husband. He's a guitar player, a BIG Dr. Who fan, a music lover. He's also a fan of Dragon Ball Z and House (the TV show).

He dislikes peach and coconut flavors. Not a big chocolate eater, and doesn't like tea, though does drink coffee sometimes. He loves Diet Coke. Not a big fan of scents or body products. Always looking for new socks. He works a job where he dresses up, so things like ties are always welcome.

Aside from that, he's a big computer geek. Not so much gaming, but coding and web design.

His favorite colors are black and red.

His nickname is Frog.

I hope I've given you some ideas...if you need to know more, just ask!

Comment: I received these today, over 8 weeks after the due date. They were rather flimsy, not sturdy and were pretty slap dash.

Comment: I'm giving you a 3 (honestly, I should give you a "1", but since I received it, I can't) because you took no time to look at my profile to see my interests. You stuffed 3 cherry candy (I specifically stated I HATE cherry anything) and a baby sock that's supposed to be used as a coin purse (huh??) into a baby food jar. You covered it in duct tape that was full of cat hair. YUCK. You can re-send and I'll change your rating or take the 3 as is. Your choice.

Comment: For this swap I sent out 2 ATCs to each partner and put a lot of time into making them. I'm really disappointed that I didn't receive anything from you. Will change this rating if I ever get the missing ATC.

Comment: I'm really sad that I didn't receive anything, as I put a lot of love and time into the ATCs I sent for this swap. I will change this rating as soon as I find the missing ATCs in my mail.

Caitlin Seida, I see that you have flaked on your partner for Easy ATC Swap #1 even though you hit sent on 6th April. Can you please message me or your partner and let us know in case you have any plans of resending?

Hello

When I did a member check for our group I noticed that you have three overdue swaps on your dash. I have changed your status until this is resolved. How everything is ok.

Thanks Shannon
