About Me

Most recent profile update: Oct 16, 2017

I’m a 34 year old college grad currently living in Central PA with my husband (Of 11 years on December 31, 2016!) and my recently retired Mother. My husband and I are Lifetime members of the Universal Gamers Guild - our motto: “Play Games, Have Fun.”

~ I have a 1 year old son! (Born in January 2016) His online handle is Squid. He helps me get the mail every day. He loves reading, playing with toy cars and getting into everything.

~I worked at the circulation desk of the local public library. We moved, and now I’m a domestic engineer. I loved providing Reader’s Advisory - suggesting the next book someone should check out.

~I don’t like cooking, but I do occasionally like baking. I do, however, like to read cookbooks.

current events

Our house theme for 2017 is Food, Fun and Friends.

We're looking forward to lots of comfort food in November and cookies in December!

My major hobby at the moment is the Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup at Ravelry - tons of my time goes to crocheting, knitting and spinning! I have also recently taken up needle tatting.

Likes

~I collect ATC's and lapel pins.

~My favorite book genres are Romance, Fantasy and cookbooks (although I don't really like to cook, I just like to browse the recipes). I adore rewritten and fractured fairy tales (Mercedes Lackey's 500 Kingdoms series is wonderful!). I have a Kindle but still love physical books. I also love audiobooks.

~My favorite colors are black and jewel tones - especially blue and green.

~I love mythical beasties - particularly dragons. I used to work in a zoo and am rather fond of most all critters, actually.

~I love playing games - board games, card games, RPGS, video games - any kind of games! If you're curious, our game collection is here: https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/Kaypendragon

~I am a tea snob - I love tea, but am very particular about it. My favorite brands are Stash and Twinnings. I prefer the plainer black teas, like English Breakfast, and spiced teas. (Sadly, I've had to give up caffeine recently, so I'm learning to like decaf.) I also like herbal teas. I also love tea baked goods: scones, biscuits, buns and desserts - tea time is the only time I cook for.

Dislikes

There's not a lot that I don't like and most of the stuff I'm not fond of I can give to people around me who do like it (IE: I don't drink coffee but Hubby does).

But there are a couple of real dislikes: I don't do artificial sweeteners. No "sugar-free" anything. I can't even give it away.

In Teas, I don't like Lipton brand or Bigelow brand. I do not like roobios tea. Most anything else, I'll at least try. I'm not fond of most flavored black teas but if you think it's really good, I'll try it.

I'm highly allergic to cigarette smoke. So, if you are or live with a smoker, drop me a note ahead of time.

Wishlist

I LOVE hand drawn Atc's. I don't make judgements on drawing skill so if you want to try out mini-sized drawing or painting, I'm the one to send it to!

Games - board games, card games, dice games.

We’re big game players in our household. Cards or game pieces or dice or mini games would decidedly be welcome here.

I have a DSI and a DS Lite which love hand crafted accessories or used games. We also have a WiiU and a PS2.

Tea icons - I'm particularly hunting for a tea cup or teapot stencil. Tea themed stamps are cool too.

Yarn! Mini skeins are lovely. Acrylic goes to making baby hats and blankets for a local hospital, so it's better if it's soft. Wool and bends become things for me. It's nice to know the fiber content, and the brand if it's commercial yarn.

I’m restarting my collection of felt food. I’d love a handmade treat.

I'd love some self adhesive return address labels. I'm always running out.

I recently got a Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine! Dies would be awesome, if you're destashing. Also, tips and tricks for using it!

I totally forgot to thank you for the used postage stamps. I greatly appreciate this and the Veterans will too. Thank you so much!

kiddomerriweather on Nov 18, 2017:

Thank you for the ATC's from my November AATW wishlist. I love them both. Sorry about my late "thank you," but my dad passed away on the 7th and my mind has been elsewhere. Your mail really cheered me up during his illness, so I greatly appreciate you. <3

Thank you for the ATC & ATC Backgrounds from my October AWG Wishlist!

kiddomerriweather on Oct 18, 2017:

Whatever the trick is, I’m still super impressed. I abhor doing cross stitching, so every time I receive a piece I cherish it. Thanks a million times. ❤️

kiddomerriweather on Oct 9, 2017:

Thank you for the ATC’s from my October AATW wishlist. I absolutely love them all!
