I am a crafty nut who has an array of fabrics, trims and buttons from Melbourne and Japan and look forward to a swap or a few hundred... It gets kinda addictive... I love Japanese fabrics & trims and my favourite colours are green and red. I also love vintage fabrics, trees and birds. I try to recycle fabrics where possible. My list of 'I like': COLORS: Green (esp. mint, moss & aqua) Red, bright colors. Combinations: dusky pink w/ olive green, red with aqua, grey with pink, green with anythingâ€¦ STUFF: japanese fabric, vintage fabrics, , zakka, hedgehogs, owls, birds, trees & leaves, patterns, bright coloured polka dots & stripes, ,notecards, greeting cards,stamps, ribbon, fabric covered vintage buttons and old wallpaperâ€¦
'I don't like': purple, anything Victorian style, religious matter & icons...
My daughter Indigo is now 10 (oh how time flies...) and her birthday is 15th December. She is crazy about glitter, papers, birds, squirrels, Hedgehogs, being independent, stickers, Letter writing sets, papers. She would be excited to receive anything in the mail! Especially with foreign stamps. Does anyone know have a penpal for her???
Mainly chick tunes; Missy Higgins, Adele, Aretha Franklin, Tracy Chapman, Tori Amos, Crowded House, Compilations of funk/jazz and my daughters pop preferences have found their way to my vocal chords on many a road trip! Many Australian bands too...
Where to start... Whale Rider, The Castle, The Big Blue, Betty Blue, Bridget Jone's Diary, Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Pretty in Pink, all the 80's classics. I am easily addicted to sets of tv series.
Offspring, The News, Cooking shows, Underbelly, Six Feet Under, Greys Anatomy still! How to get away with murder, Highlander, and am in dire need of series recommendations!
