About Me

Hi! My name's Alison, welcome to my little bit of swap-bot! I'm 21 years old, and live at home with my parents, little sister, a bunch of fish, and 3 cats. I went to college for baking and pastry, but am no longer so sure that's what I want to do with my life. I think I liked it more as a hobby. So, I am currently relearning French-if you speak it, please write to me in it. Once I've got French down, I will be applying to be a flight attendant-originally, I couldn't even think about applying, as I was too short, but they changed restrictions! yay! Like I said, I've got 3 cats, I try to keep them out of things, but they're terrible listeners, if you find a stray fluff, I'm really sorry! Smoke free over here though! I also reuse packaging, if this offends you, please let me know, and you can get something shiny and new.

If you're doing a profile surprise for me, and looking through my etsy likes, please ignore all the wedding stuff. My best friend is getting married in 2 years (EEeee!) and as maid of honour (squee!) I'm planning quite a bit. I do like what I have for the wedding, but I wouldn't really like a sample pack of save-the dates.

Favorite Music

Lately, folk metal. And did you know there's such thing as pirate metal? there is, and you should look up the band Alestorm, they're super fun. Also have a huge weakness for 90's girl pop. My ipod on shuffle is pretty funny-goes from a hairy Finnish guy yelling, to the spice girls.

Favorite Books

I'm a total bookworm. I really love the chronicles of narnia, and harry potter. Angus, thongs, and full frontal snogging, along with the rest of the series, makes me nearly wet myself laughing every single time I read it. Favourite book of all time? Le Petit Prince/The Little Prince

Favorite Movies

most old disney...like really old disney. Bedknobs and Broomsticks rocks my world. I also love the movie May, but that's a b horror film, that's really twisted and not for the faint of heart. I also adore Mary Poppins. My favourite guilty pleasure movie is Josie and the Pussycats. Repo! The genetic opera!

Favorite Television

Don't watch a lot of tv, unless I'm crafting, then I'll sit and stream my favourite shows for hours. I like American Horror Story, Castle, and The Big Bang Theory. LOVE Firefly, Buffy currently watching Torchwood

Favorite Crafts

A bit of everything. Lately, I've been doing a lot of cross stitch, but I also knit, crochet, and bead. I also enjoy origami.

Comment: Finally, the tea arrived! Or perhaps I should say, finally *I* arrived....because I just got back from my two-month vacation in Canada, and it's probably been languishing in the university mail room for much of that time. Anyhow, I tore open the packet to be greeted with a lovely rich scent of tea. I'm going to keep the whole envie in the office to share - thanks so much for your generosity!
Response: I'd forgotten I'd even sent that! Glad you like it, hope you loved your vacation!
