About Me

Lets see... I’m a 30-year-old mom to a 3-year-old little girl who keeps me on my toes and makes me laugh all the time!

My favorite colors are Greens, Pinks…but lately I really like Orange and Aqua.

I love entertaining and having a house full of people it makes me happy probably because I come from a family of 7. Im hoping to get into event planning.

I got a sewing machine for Christmas and just made my first quilt that turned out surprisingly great! I can officially say I have fallen in love! Fabric is like candy to me I can’t help but buy it! Vintage fabric is fabulous, I also like Tula Pink, Erin Michaels and Urban Chicks stuff for Moda. Michael Miller is lovely :)

I’m not so much into cutesy county crafts; I guess I’m more of the urban crafter. I love antiques...My grandfather taught me how to restore antique furniture when I was in highschool, I wish I had more time to do it!

I love to shop on Etsy, read Craft Blogs and to give Kiva loans...

I love to travel...my favorite places I have been so far are Cuba, Honduras, Belize & London. I have lived in Atlanta, New York, Toronto and Vancouver.

Tattoo’s are sexy...my partner has full sleeves on both of her arms and is in the process of getting a back piece...I have 3 and will probably get more

I love kitsch...Pin-Up Girls, Anne Taintor, 1950's housewives are my favorite :)

4/10/08 - I just started a flickr page for my swaps so from now on Im going to try and take pictures of all the swaps I send and receive so if I'm sending to you and you want to be surprised don't look :)

I’m ADDICTED to the 2008 US Presidential Race I can’t seem to get enough of it! It is like crack to me I really want the GLBT Rainbow Obama sticker but it is only back order 6-8 weeks if you have one to send I would be in LOVE!

Favorite Music

I’m mostly a Hip Hop and R&B kinda girl! You can often catch me listening to some of the following artists: Dwele, Van Hunt, Me'Shell N'degeocello, Rahsaan Patterson, Anthony Hamilton, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, J5, Blackalicious, Slum Village, The Roots, Lupe Fiasco, Talib Kweli, Common, Mos Def, The O'Jays, The Stylistics, The Whispers, Parliment, Al Green, Switch

Right now the Song "Why" by Anthony Hamilton is a song that I listen to atleast once a day sometimes I put it on repeat...lol

Favorite Movies

Old movies make me happy like Please Don’t Eat The Daisies, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, An Affair to Remember, Imitation of Life, To Kill A Mockingbird

80’s movies are the best!

Favorite Television

L Word, Dirt, Weeds, Big Love, Dexter, America’s Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, Ghost Whisperer, Prison Break, Ugly Betty, Grey’s Anatomy, Pushing Daisies

You can also find me watching things on HGTV, TLC & DIY Networks

Favorite Books

I must admit that I have found since I now have a small child that the audio book is pretty great, especially the biographies when the person the book is about reads it themselves! But still nothing is like a good book some of my favorites are:

The Bluest Eye(Toni Morrison), Tipping the Velvet (Sara Waters), Coffee Will Make You Black(April Sinclair), Blacker the Berry(Wallace Thurman), Invisible Life(E. Lynn Harris), The Women of Brewsters Place(Gloria Naylor)

Welcome to My Nuts for Sewing Group

mightyhealthy on Mar 1, 2008:

You know, I totally agree. There's a few of us kicking around, and your comment gave me an idea. I think when the groups feature becomes public, I'll start a hip hop group. Just so that it's easier to find each other, hahaha.

Your profile is very cool. I love okay player. <333!
