I have several crafts that I love and several ones I am trying out. I have crocheted for many years, do gardening and I make purses out of recycled materials, like plastic bags and potato chip bags. Im a hopeless saver, keeping things until I find some use for them. I do a little origami, a bit of jewelry making, glass etching, trying other glass arts, card making, knitting, punch embriodery, bedazzling, fabric painting and sewing. I like to make my own bath salts, using herbs from the garden. I can't draw to save my life but I love to color. Thats what I do when Im not working as a nurse or cooking, or playing with my boxer Pinot.
I love the beach the sun and the sea. Anything and everything related to the sea. Including fishing. I love coffie. I like tea too and have a nice collection of china cups and teapots. I love white wine (and I collect lables and corks). I also love Jack Daniels - neat. I love dark chocolate, who doesnt? I love shoes!!!!!! I love dogs in general, especially larger dogs. I have owned labs, two yellows, a german shepherd, and I presently have a faun boxer named Pinot. Others in my family have a bull mastiff, Faccia Brute, and two very cute mini-pins named Louis vutton and Dolce Vita. (my only grandchildren so far). I love finding new uses for old things. I love making gifts for people and crafting in general. I love decorating. I love gardening - flowers and veggies. I love Buddah's - the happy fat ones only - yes I'm a Christian. My grandmother collected them and so she started my collection. She started my teacup collection too. I love Old Stuff in general. Japanese stuff.
Im a wife, mother of 3, all of whom are out of the house, and a nurse. I love crafting and my dog Pinot. I am known by many friends, family and co-workers as "the Green Queen" as I am always finding new ways to re-purpose things, better to re-use then throw out. I try to repurpose with my crafting as well.
I have an adorable faun boxer named Pinot. I try to feed her natural food and snacks, milk bone type things, dried real meats or pigs ears (no rawhide!). I will sometimes give her beggin strips and things like that. She has a little bit of a delicate digestive system and these are the things that she does OK with. I also bake her cookies. Her favorite is sweet potatoe snacks, she loves peanut butter too. The last bag of sweet potatoe "fries" I got her, I left out on the kitchen table and my husband ate half the bag before I told him that they were for the dog.
Birds in general. especially roosters and geese. Filthy creatures! I dont mind the more exotic ones like parrots and cockatoos or the occasional pretty colored duck, peacock or flamingo.
I am a news junkie. I have Fox on all day when im home. I also love old movies.
My Flicker: I just learned about Flicker,so I am trying to gather pix of the things I have made to arrange there for anyone interested to look at. Please feel free to share how you make similar things or ask about the things I make
My trip if a lifetime was a 10 day tour of Japan with my mother and then 17 year old daughter. We not only had a blast, but we got so see so many beauthful things and places, and met many wonderful people. Also I could have just lived on noodle bowls.they are on every corner - like a japanese MdDonalds.
So I love all things Japanese! Only wish I had more time there.
Since some swaps are wearable items I thought this was a good topic. I wear size 6/8 dress size. Panty size M/L or 7, and I like the lacy stretchy thongs with thick sides most, but wear thongs, some boy-shorts and regular bikini's too. I like most colors, not too picky there. I am blonde and have a light (but not pale) complexion that tans easily, but too dark or too light lipsticks dont usually work for me.
I like most flavors & types of tea
I like most colors but I guess my favorite is green
My house decore is greens and earth tones, except for bathrooms. I have one black & gold (guest powder room), one all red white & blue (Upstairs bath), one "fishing" theme (basement/gameroom), and mine, white mostly with some greens & pastels
Buddah statues - the happy fat ones, sitting or standing, big or small
Postcards - Interesting, funny, old, odd, touristy- if they fall into the above catagories,
Wine lables & corks if you can read the names or have a picture on them
Stationary - especially handmade
shoe stuff (stuff w/shoe pix on it)Including paper and material. If you have any leftover pieces or see any remnints in yor local shop I will swap for
Japanese stuff, teacups, chopsticks, little tiny dolls w/komono etc.
Bar Coasters - all types
card making stuff
vintage purses - dont mind if they need some fixing

I will always rate when I recieve and PM you if the item recieved is a problem or not recieved. If you dont like something I sent, or if you dont recieve for some reason, please PM me and I will replace.
I am new and still working things out, but trying to use the guidelines of the swap. But that still means I may interpret things incorrectly. I will give you the same leeway.
I also dont check post dates unless you are unusually late, so when life happens, just send a note. We are all her for fun, companionship, friendship and sharing, not for drama.
If you have not recieved a rating from me, please PM me. I have a few things that came with no or ruined return addresses and no note or no swap name, or I just couldnt read it. I have figured out some but not all yet
