I like gnomes, mushrooms, reading, tea, vegetarian cooking, camping and sciencey projects! My favorite colors are jewel tones, earth tones and especially purple, yellow, green, and grey! Copper, silver gunmetal/hematite are my favorite metallics. I think steampunk and diy are pretty awesome! I have a 9 month old puppy(50lb so far!) and an orange cuddly cat. Both have stripes! I like picture of fruits and vegetables, all styles. I enjoy learning about medicinal an culinary herbs. My favorite flowers are dandelions, daffodils, poppies, and bluebonnets, but I love all flowers plants trees and such! Especially trees and any botanical with roots(I love roots!)!
"One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "Wild Fermentation" by Sandor Katz, "The Mists of Avalon" by Marion Zimmer Bradley, "House of Leaves" by Mark Z. Danielwski, "A Language Older Than Words" By Derrick Jensen. How to books, Survival books, Histories, Short Stories, Radical fiction and nonfiction, Crazy Cookbooks, Old Cookbooks, specific/technique cookbooks, other types of recipe books(ie cleaners, crafts, body products, herbal medicine, etc)
The crafting I do consists mostly of hand sewing, card making, clothing alteration(I really like bleaching designs onto shirts, bags, etc) and stencils. My biggest Hobbies are cooking and gardening which are of course "crafts" if you do them right! I have been really interested in fiber arts lately. I have a drop spindle that I am trying to get practice with. I know rudimentary crochet. I would love to learn weaving. I love essential oils and herbs. I've been making my own perfumes, teas, body products and remedies. Any supplies or advice/ideas for any of these things would be awesome!
Anything would be appreciated, I have pretty eclectic tastes! I would LOVE to receive handmade items! I have sensitive skin so watch the creepy chemicals if applicable! I don't have pierced ears, but I love stick ons! Tea wise I'm up for anything! I especially love interesting herbals and weird/new/interesting/uncommon flavors, but the classics are great too! Loose-leaf or bags are great, just let me know what it is!
