I'm 38 year old mom of two (well three if you count my husband lol). My daughter is 17 going on 20 and my son is 6. Along with crafting I love to cook and bake for my family, I've newly started creating more detailed birthday cakes. I love crafting stuff of all sorts from scrapbooking to bookmarks to general crafts, jewelry making, painting, sewing anything that strikes my fancy really. I love doing swaps! I've done a few but not on this site. I like saving stuff that I think can be repurposed like recyclable cardboard, old sweaters, neat books w/ cool pictures that I can create bookmarks with. I am an avid freecycler too and its great to find things someone else doesn't need but you are dying to have. I love seeing what others have created.
I love all 80's music especially the cure, all the alternative and hair bands too. Classic rock is what I listen to on a day to day basis, but my taste varies depending on my mood.
My favorite genre of books is non-fiction mostly but I'm pretty much open to anything interesting except romance type novels. I'm currently reading The Good Earth, Zombie Survival Guide and WWII Holocaust novel so my tastes vary also. I'm bad at reading multiples books at one time lol.
I love chick flicks especially 80s chick movies like Pretty in Pink and 16 Candles. I also really like horror movies, the cheesier the better. Japanese and foreign horror movies are awesome too. All time favorite movie is probably You've Got Mail, I know I'm sappy at times but I'm not ashamed.
I have to confess I do watch mostly realty tv like cheaters, obsessed, hoarders and intervention the most. Love TLC and Discovery Channel but I'm not really into any one series on a regular basis.
Oh there are so many I hope I can name them all without forgetting any, and these are in no particular order either: Scrapbooking, bookmarkers, cardmaking, sewing felt dolls and dollclothes, dolls in general, felt appliques, jewelry making, bookthongs. I also love to recycle used items into new and interesting usable things once again. I know I'm leaving off a lot so I'll update this as I go along and remember more. I love quirky pictures and interesting little saying or tidbits that can be used for bookmarks.

Sid loves cars, tractors and motorcycles of all sorts. He is a huge tractor fan, so anything involving tractors he is all over it! Love doing crafty stuff like his mama, color, paint, cut and glue things. Has a new addiction to puzzles, not too many pieces though. I'm trying to cut down on his sweets, so please no candy or just maybe one little sweet item thank you. Snacks he does love fruit leather, peanuts, or any nuts really, beef jerky.
