always: feminist. avid reader. pop culture whore. insomniac. netflix enthusiast.

i want to have a library in my house. let's start with authors i love: augusten burroughs, jean m auel, jodi picoult, eugene ionesco, edward albee, pinter, james frey, & mary karr. i'm a huge fan of memoirs, especially those detailing dysfunctional families or addiction: e.g. the glass castle & jesus land. i love old/used books. i don't mind writing in the margins or underlining - as long as all of the pages are there then i'm good to go. i like a book that's been loved and read over and over.
I love HBO movies and underdogs.
The Wire. Weeds. Entourage. Brothers & Sisters. Private Practice. Kid Nation. The L Word. October Road.
Fabric Crafts: Beginning Knitter (I've made scarves, and the bamboo handled purse from Stich-n-Bitch). I want to learn how to crochet, but it looks hard.
Paper Crafts: I've been collecting ephemera and paper odds and ends forever, so I'm finally starting to make my own cards. However, I still have a hard time resisting adorable store-bought cards.
paper scraps, ephemera, tea, lip balm, bangles, dangly earrings, (method) candles, picture frames, art/prints (for my apartment or office!), cute pill boxes.
Motifs I love: sweets (cupcakes, cake, baked goods), dragonflies/insects, birds, alice in wonderland, ethnic prints (indian, african, scandinavian), folk art (or folk inspired crafts/things), & owls.
I love things that juxtapose tough and tender, trash and elegance, & posh and pop.
check out my wist (website listed above) for a sense of the things i love.

I'm going to take a quick break from swapping - it's getting a little hectic and I don't want to drop the ball!
Best wishes, Leigh
