About Me

Note to any partners sending to Hawaii: their PO SUCKS! Everything takes forever to get here, gets lost, ruined or any other form of disrespect. Tape envelopes very well! Before I join any swaps I have to finish my work before partners are assigned to (hopefully) ensure prompt arrival! (Two of the three swaps I've done in the year since I've moved have apparently been super late.) Tags, wishlists, private swaps, etc I think are the best bet for me! PM if you're interested and don't mind a bit of lateness! Mahalo! Also, we have a very sad 'craft store.' I really appreciate any crafty generosity: ATC blanks, glue sticks, cheap exactos, erasers for carving, etc. Thank you!

Hiya! My name is Vanessa but my friends call me Vendetti. I love nicknames, giving them and getting them. The stories behind them are fascinating and hilarious. I used to work at Starbucks so, obviously, I like coffee (but I like tea even more.) From working there for so long, I've collected quite a few mugs and tea pots.

Now that I live on the beautiful island of Kauai I work and wonderful 90% sustainable restaurant on the beach! We also have the best bar on the island so if you're ever in the area let me know. ;)

I have quite a potty mouth and enjoy dirty enuendo. I also have a very dark, dry sense of humor.. It's pretty hard to offend me. ;) Just try.

Right now I'm learning sign language. I find it so beautiful! But I don't get much practice so I'm a little nervous when talking to fluent signers.

I practically live at thrift stores! Clothes, houseware, books, purses, anything I can find! If you like to upcycle I will not be offended at all. I love to hear people are saving money/ getting the deal of the century! =)

I love moustaches, coffe, tea, Starbucks, balloons, owls, dinosaurs, the color orange, tattoos, musicals, Spider-man, coloring, dressing up, Dr. Pepper, ski ball, judge Judy, Sponge Bob, Sci-fi, thunderstorms, oak trees, fruit snacks, Video games, Zombies, blue hair, Moose, giraffes, elephants, cleaning/organizing, traveling circus, candy! (just not chocolate), and so much more.

Favorite Crafts

My favorite kinds of gifts are homemade ones.

Nothing is better then trading mix CDs! This is lost with most of the people I know so I hope to meet people that like to make and give mix CDs.

Knitting, crocheting, amateur photography, collaging (sp?), and drawing are just some of the things I like to do.

Favorite Books

I read all the time, but my favorite books are Harry Potter. I'm slightly obsessed!

Dexter, Wizard of Oz, City of Ember, The Time Traveler's Wife, Catcher in the Rye, Wicked, Water for Elephants, A Clockwork Orange

Chuck Palahniuk Chuck Klosterman..

Favorite Movies

I'm a big time movies watcher. I'll give just about anything a shot (but I don't really like chick flicks).

I dig musicals above all else. Rocky Horror Picture Show, Moulin Rouge, Disney movies, Dr, Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and Phantom of the Opera to name a few.

I heart Natalie Portman movies. And Quentin Tarantino movies!

I always love Nathan Lane!! =D

Things I love!

*Juicy Couture

*Harry Potter

*Safety eyes of any size or color for my amigurumis!

*any art you love to make! (Especially writing!)

*Science Fiction anything. I'm a huge nerd.

*Firefly comics (I have the first two.)

I really like Anne Boleyn. Anything to do with the Tudors would be amazing!

*I love things to put in my hair. Like flower clips, owl clips, snail clips, anything! Big or small.


*Moustaches. =D

*Sherlock Holmes

*anything sea foam green

*All kinds of teas (NO spiced/cinnamon)

*Thrift store finds

*anything British =)


*Mix CDs

*Unique earrings

Favorite Television

House, American Horror Story, Fringe, Lie to Me, Project Runway, Community, Judge Judy, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Torchwood, Jeeves and Wooster, The X-Files, Queer as Folk, Star Trek: Voyager, Veronica Mars

Anything by Joss Whedon. (Except Buffy. I've only watched the musical episode.) Especially Firefly!

Wonderful, Beautiful Angels

I've met some pretty great people here on swap-bot! These are only some of them but as angels they should be recognized. Thank you everyone!

Comment: Great list, just a shame it was mailed 6 days after the deadline or I'd have loved to give you a heart for it
Response: I pm'd you about my mail issues... Mail wasn't coming in or going out of my house. We had a week and half of flash flood warnings. The letter was still late, so I guess deserve the three but that's what happened.
Mrrranda rated for Movies You Must See! on May 21, 2011
Comment: Thanks! It looks like you had to resend - I appreciate it. Believe it or not, I've seen all but three of these - our interests overlap in unexpected ways. I have some GOOD NEWS: Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter is now streaming on Netflix, making it easier to *spread the word!* --- I have not seen... Stardust, Hounddog, or Serenity. Just had another thought about JCVH, too - what with it the end of the world 'n' all today, I should invite some friends over and fire up that stream, no? Do you also have the Netflix? We can watch it *together.* Sort of.
Response: Oh bummer! Which ones haven't you seen yet?*** oh goodness! I do have Netflix but no computer. =( that's perfect end of the world movie too!

Comment: I have to say, this is the best smelling package I've ever opened!! But I LOVE, love, LoVe my adorable off-the-chart Pop Tart Amigurumi!! Her little home is perfect for her, but I will have to take her out to display her on my shelf full time. She is too precious, Vanessa - thank you so much! ♥♥♥
Response: I'm so happy the package got to you so quickly after I sent it! Especially since I sent so late... I saw the PT holder in the store and immediately thought of you Alisha, glad you like it. =)

PisceanMama rated for Fangirl/Fanboy Squash Book on Oct 25, 2010
Comment: You got that out quick! It was a great surprise in my mailbox. And as I was looking at it, I kept thinking "Boy, we've got a lot in common!" I'm a big fan of Firefly and Dexter too. And it was so beautifully done, too. I may use yours as a guide to how to make mine look cool too. :)
Response: Awww, thank you! I was afraid it was looking a little crowded. I'm so glad you like it! =D

I think my mailbox has cobwebs, the hiatus was long and pretty crappy to tell you the truth, it was an uphill climb most of the way. But finally after a year of getting things back together after losing my job things are finally looking up. I have a job, the kids are doing better, bills are caught up and we are going to have a white Christmas! <3

kiwivandal on Nov 27, 2011:

ok, for real, are plastic bags actually outlawed in Hawaii? For what reason? and what may I ask is Plarn? and HI!!!! I'm back and I have missed you :)

Fatherted on Nov 11, 2011:

Hey, everything alright?

PenguinParade on Apr 25, 2011:

I do have a personal Flickr. I haven't set one up for crafty things yet....I need to. Ugh. When I do I'll let you know :D And I'm excited about doing the swap!

zombiekittie on Apr 20, 2011:

The only thing you can do when Michael Madsen comes in to your work is pee your pants. He was in Austin a few years ago for a film festival and I followed him around like a puppy until he finally said "If I say hello to you will you please leave me alone?" I got very red and said yes, so he gave me a hug and said hello and walked away. I almost died right there. I'm way excited about the swap too. My brain is just running with movie ideas.

AndrewLips on Mar 23, 2011:

Yes!! Kate is ace. She blogged about my comic last year. she's so nice to meet. You, me, Stephen and Hugh can all go on a double date! :D yay! xx
