My etsy favorites
Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile!
Here is a quick little run down about me so you can get to know me better. I have a husband and five kids, ranging in age from 16 to 4. I have two cockatiels and three rabbits. I live in Arizona.
I love swapping on swap-bot. It is something that I do for "me" to brighten the otherwise mundane housework, grocery shopping, homework, carpooling, etc. of everyday life. I LOVE SNAIL MAIL!
SOME OF MY FAVORITES:
Colors: any and all shades of green, my very favorite is dark/forest green. I also love deep purple. However, I never met a color I didn't like!
Animals: I love the duck-billed platypus! They are my favorite animal. I am fascinated with those creatures. They seem like they were made from a bunch of "leftovers" after all the other animals were made. I also love hedgehogs, Basset Hounds, cockatiels, mallard ducks, walruses, sea horses, and turtles/tortoises
Hobbies: Playing the piano, reading, couponing, soccer (I'm a "soccer mom"), crocheting, knitting, exercising, recycling, adding to my collections
Crafts: Crocheting and knitting. I also enjoy sewing simple things and cross stitching occasionally. I have tried ATCs in the past and enjoy those, but only when I'm feeling creative; my creativity seems to come and go.
More detailed descriptions of what I like are below. Feel free to read what you like and skip what is irrelevant:
I love to read. For an idea of what kinds of books I like: crochet or knitting books, magazines or pamphlets; Harry Potter; Jane Austen; "The Host"by Stephenie Meyer; sweet/clean reads; always happy endings; suspense
I dislike sexy romance novels and books with a lot of gory violence.
I love to knit and crochet. Those are my main crafts, but I also like to sew and cross stitch occasionally. I have tried my hand at ATCs. I love to try new crafts.
Please if you have no use for your unwanted leftover yarn balls, please send them my way! I make little things from yarn leftovers all the time and I love to have variety in colors. I would be so happy to take them off your hands.
Favorite collection: I love to collect NATIVITY Christmas ornaments. (Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, shepherds, and/or wisemen.)
