I am a plus size girl who suffers from craft ADD. I'm interested in so many things that I bounce from one craft to another. I love creating something that people admire. I also want to get more involved with the online crafty community.
I've been crocheting for years. I love Polymer Clay and making jewelry out of it. I've dabbled in painting/drawing but I'm never satisfied with it. Although since discovering ATCs, I'm willing to give it another shot. I'm teaching myself how to knit; it's not going so well. I just learned embroidery and cross-stitch so I'm working with that. I've started making some chain mail and chain mail jewelry. I'm also dying to learn how to sew....This is what I mean by craft ADD. It's fun learning so many things because I can use them in my other crafts.
I loved the Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and Artemis Fowl series. I'm almost done with the Dresden Files (which I considered what Harry Potter would have been as an adult) which is based in my hometown so it's cool to recognize the places that are talked about.
I love romance novels. I read about one a day. I especially love historical romance like the Regency period and the Old West.
I'm a big fan of Superheros. My favorite superhero movie has to be Iron Man 2. I loved the first but the second was more complex. I also loved the Dark Knight since Batman is my favorite DC character.
I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy. Roxanne with Steve Martin has to be my all time favorite.
I don't watch much TV. The shows I watch tend to be on Netflix. I love sarcastic main characters so shows like House and Lie to Me are appealing. Mythbusters is also a fun show to watch. I also love anything Muppet related. I have the first two seasons of the Muppet Show on DVD.
I have an eclectic taste in music. I love show tunes and lively classical music. I also love alternative and pop music. My all-time favorite song is Ahn Trio's dark tango version of "My Funny Valentine."
My favorite colors are green and blue. My favorite season is fall. My favorite animals are octopuses, butterflies and coquis (frogs from Puerto Rico). My favorite pet is a cat. I have two, Squishy and Tigger.
