I am a stay at home mother to three awesome kids. Two boys aged 2 and 13 and a 9 year old girl. I consider myself a very creative person, and am happiest when I'm crafting.

My Amigurumi's

My biggest obsession right now is making amigurumi's! I can make anything from a pattern, including Japanese patterns. I can also make them with out patterns. I happily make them for private swaps (most of my swaps are for ami's lately). I put a lot of time and care in my work, and promise I will not send out something I am not completely happy with :)

Favorite Books

I read quite a bit. Love Nicholas Sparks books (and the movies that follow) Jodi Picoult, Jude Devereaux, Some Nora Roberts. I could go on and on. I read everything pretty much everything (except for Sci-fi) depending on my mood. Although I'm not a Harlequin fan, or bodice ripping, bare chested pirate on the cover type books :)

I'd be happy to receive a book you enjoyed reading, and are ready to pass on :)

Some authors that I like but haven't read many of (so a good choice to pass along, as I probably haven't read it...)

  • Lisa Gardner
  • Fern Michaels
  • Jonathan Kellerman
  • Heather Graham
  • Karen Robards
  • J.D Robb
  • Kelley Armstrong
  • Marian Keyes
  • Iris Johansen
  • Tami Hoag

I've been interested in "light" reads lately, like the shopoholic series (which I've finished) and the number series by Janet Evanovich (which I've also read all so far) but books similar would be good.

Also really like thriller (not horror) something that COULD happen scares the crap out of me (in a good way! LOL)

Favorite Movies and Television

I love movies. Comedy and romance mostly. Thriller but not horror. See tons of kids movies (not always my first choice, lol) Some of my favorites include Something Borrrowed, The Notebook, Goodfellas, He's Just Not That Into You, Friends With Benefits, Dirty Dancing, Pearl Harbor, 13 going on 30....I could go on for pages....

Don't get to watch much TV in the day (does Paw Patrol count?) Love Supernatural! Sons of Anarchy, true blood, Chuck, but most of all Supernatural! Lol

Favorite Crafts

My number one love is, of course, crocheting . I love making amigurumi's, afghans, fingerless gloves, scarves, hats, cowls, flowers and motifs for embellishments, sweaters, socks...the list goes on. And I love patterns! If you happen to come across a free pattern on the internet you think I'd like, pm me or leave a comment with the link!! I'd love it :)

Planning...

I love it. My planner goes everywhere with me and I'd be lost without it. I use an Erin Condren :)

Sewing .... I'm not very good at it yet, but I love it!!! I have become a bit of a fabric collector. My favorite fabrics are woodland prints, Riley Blake, Micheal Miller, Alexander Henry, and Japanese prints. Not into the big floral prints. I am currently learning to make pillow cases, so would LOVE to receive 2 yards of coordinating fabric!!!! (One yard each pattern) But FQ's are ALWAYS appreciated as well!!

Scrapbooking . I just got the I-Top, so I would love to get the brad, badge or magnet daddies that go with it. Love altering home decor items with scrapbooking stuff. Also like stamping and cardmaking.

My favorite brand's are Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, Bella Blvd., Bo Bunny, My Mind's Eye, Sassafrass Lass, Fancy Pants, Imaginesce, KI Memories, Jillibean Soup, Little Yellow Bicycle, October Afternoon, Pink Paislee, We R Memory Keepers.....

I would love to learn how to knit, but haven't found the time :(

I also enjoy making bottlecap magnets.

Wish List

Right off the bat, I can tell you the quickest way to my heart is with Smurf items and amigurumi patterns from my Etsy favs!

That being said.....Here's a basic idea of what makes me smile...

SMURF ANYTHING!!! I love smurfs. It was something I shared with my Dad before he died when I was six, so it holds a lot of meaning for me. New or vintage :) I would LOVE any of the playsets like this....

Amigurumi patterns from my Etsy are especially appreciated.

I Love This Yarn and I Love This Cotton

Caron Cakes and Caron cupcakes yarn

Anything planner related. I use my Erin Condren the most

Anything from my Etsy Favs.

Anything Shopkins or Cars

I just received a Keurig coffee maker, so K-Cups would be awesome!!

Yankee Candles

Cupcake liners and boxes.

Anything donut or unicorn themed

Accessories for the I-Top. Brad Daddies, Badge Daddies, Magnet Daddies. Etc.

KI Memories Puffies

Glimmer Mist! Any colors

Cute Woodland (Owl, deer, hedgehog etc)

Pretty 4X6 photo albums

Weekly sticker kits for my planner

Kawaii. ahem....but not real people or animals, I like the cartoons better (Like Rilakkuma, Totoro, Deery Lou, Cinnamoroll, My Melody, Sugar Bunnies, fairy tales) And I'm not fond of pictures of food with a smile drawn over it. Not so much Hello Kitty, anymore.

Would love ANYTHING Crux Cream Bears!!!!

And I LOOOOVE woodland kawaii!

BENTO BOXES!!! And accessories!! I'm starting to get a nice collection of these. Would love more!!! Especially with cute woodland creatures on them.

Anything from my Etsy Favs!!

E6000 Glue, Bottlecaps and Epoxy domes

Drink Mixes. Crystal Light, hot chocolate, Kool-Aid, Arizona tea etc.

Chocolate and sweets. And I love sour candy. Twizzlers, Andes Mints, Chewy Candies, Laffy Taffy. Would love to try different flavor KitKats.

LOVE Ghirardelli chocolate. Mmmmm

Anything from my Etsy Favs!

Copic Markers- any colors

Ugly dolls

Popples!

Anything from my Etsy Favs!

Tote bags large enough to hold any small crochet projects I'm working on!

Patterns for crochet and stuffies.

Fabric Deer, mushroom, hedgehog, woodland fabric. The cuter the better. Kawaii fabric too. ~ Riley Blake fabric. ~ Michael Miller fabric. ~ Alexander Henry You can see examples of the type I like in my Etsy Favs

Fun socks

Key Fobs. Want to learn to make my own.

A note about my Etsy Favs...

There are some higher priced item's there. These are for me!! I shop from my own Etsy list regularly. And some items are there just because I think they are beautiful, not because I want someone to buy them for me!! :)

Kids

My baby girl is 9. She wears a size 10. She likes Shopkins and Beanie Boo's (go figure). Absolutely donut and unicorn obsessed! and recently....SMURFS!!! I can't even explain how happy it makes me to see her play with them :) Anything soft that she can hug.

My boys are 2 and 13.

My older boy is into anything Nerf, Action figures, X-Men, Pokemon, transformers, GI Joe, video games, Club Penguin, Maze Puzzle Books, Puzzles (Especially Superhero ones, more Seth on this one), Superheroes (Wolverine, Iron Man, Punisher, Dead Pool etc), Candy, Lego Sets, Skateboarding, Halo, The Simpsons, Skulls.

The baby loves anything with wheels, paw patrol, Disney and Pixar movies. He's speech delayed, so books are welcome

PRESENTS!!! So if you send them something, feel free to wrap it!!!

Basically they are BOYS!!! Very easy to please kids, and very worth the effort.

SIDE NOTE..... I have a husband who is feeling VERY left out. I share my goodies with the kids, but he says I never share with him. (He's diabetic, so he can't even share the sweets) So I am adding a list for him in case anyone feels sorry for him, LOL

He likes coffee, anything sugar free (chocolate, gum etc), and beef jerky especially spicy, single serve coffee (from Starbucks etc that he can tuck in his pocket for work) hot sauce, and he is a die hard Philedelphia Flyers fan. If he got ANYTHING Flyers, he wouldn't complain about the amount I spend on postage. ;)

And no, it hasn't gone unnoticed that he is listed in the Kids section! LOL

Dislikes

Dislikes....

Cheap scratchy yarns. Super Saver yarn (like Red Heart) I won't use them.

Really old scrapbook supplies. I'm not a big sticker and die cut collector, unless they are big name brands like Cosmo Cricket etc. I know this sounds weird after saying I love scrapbooking, but I am learning once you say you like scrapbooking, a lot of older supplies start coming your way :)

Chocolate, candy and food past its expiry date. Here's a no brainer. LOL. I check the expiry dates on food before I eat it. ;)

ATC's. No offense to those who love them, I just don't understand the art. Please don't send these to me. I know you worked hard on them, and I just wouldn't appreciate them as much as you deserve.

Umm, and Dotee's creep me out! LOL

I don't collect postcards.

Magnetic notepads for the fridge. (I have a TON)

Notecards from the dollar section at Micheals (again, I have a ton)

I'm not a big vintage fan (like large floral patterns that look like my Gramma's couch, LOL)

Comment: I wish I didn't have to rate 1 and I hope you're ok Sharon, but I haven't heard from you or had replies to my messages regarding this swap :( You acknowledged receiving my parcels to you last Nov, but i've had no rating for them. It's a shame because I SO enjoyed creating this swap for you! Will of course re-rate if I receive.

Comment: Hi Sharon, I really hope you are doing okay. I sent an email off to you awhile ago, and hope that you'll be able to send out the package at some point. Or if you've decided to stop working on it would you mind shipping back my buttons? I'd just hate to lose them. Of course I'll re-rate if you send out, and again I hope you're okay!
Response: Sent message September 9 to try to rectify this swap.
