About Me

If you have not received a rating or a swap from me PLEASE message me. I absolutely always rate and never flake!

I love quilting, crochet, and crafting. You can view my crafting projects on my blog! There is a link above!

I am a college student with a major in Accounting. My fiancé and I have been together since March of 2011 and I am so happy to say that neither of us moved away for college.

I love cats. If you ask anyone that knows me, they would say that I am a little obsessed. I have one cat that is my baby. His name is Nova and I love him to pieces! He is a black cat with a little bit of faint stripes and white on his belly. He sleeps on my chest or feet every night and greets me at the door when I come home. He also plays fetch. I sometimes think he acts more like a dog!

Favorite colors: Dark colors, muted colors. Think vintage. I really am not a fan of bright, bold colors. Neon is not my thing. (Though if it is some kind of a scrappy thing, it's totally fine if my color preferences don't match.)

Likes and Dislikes

Likes:

Cats! I'm a sucker for anything cat related. Black cats especially. I also love solid white, solid grey, and orange cats. Any cats and cat related things are precious!

I love coffee mugs. I kind of collect them. Anything that is unique and dainty. Tea cups are great, too.

I like to bake (and sometimes cook). I am a vegetarian (and have been since I was born) so no meat recipes unless they are AMAZING, because I can share them with my family or make them for my boyfriend. I love cookies, bread recipes, cakes, etc. You name it, I'd probably love to receive it. Casseroles and soups are good, too. I will make something if it requires chicken stock, too, so don't hesitate. When it comes to recipes, if you think it is great, I'd most likely love to try it! However, nothing with mushrooms as the main ingredient, yuck!

I like to do origami and would appreciate any kind of pretty paper (especially ones with dainty floral prints) to make things out of.

Cat anything! I love everything about cats, so if it is cat-related, odds are I like it. Solid black, white, or grey cats are my favorite.

I enjoy quilting and crocheting and would love copies of any patters you might possess. Fabric or yarn scraps are appreciated, as well! I am allergic to wool, so nothing woolen please.

Mandalas. I have recently become obsessed and just love them!

I am interested in new kinds of music and if you read my music likes and think I would like something, let me know! I love indie music and punk (I'm not sure what to call it.) music mainly.

Quilting, embroidery, or sewing supplies would be great! Yarn that isn't wool, too!

Dislikes:

Anything anti-christian or liberal. I respect others' points-of-view but would rather not receive anything I wouldn't agree with.

Wool fabric or yarn, as I am allergic!

Anything relating to specific celebrities. I don't generally follow celebrities and don't like most (just the things they are in).

Glitter

Pin-up girl-related things

I feel like this one goes without saying, yet I feel the need to say it anyway: no nudes on anything. Ew.

Favorite Books

I love reading teen fiction novels. My favorite is dystopian fiction. I'm a sucker for futuristic dystopian novels. Some of my favorite books/series are:

Across the Universe

Harry Potter

The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay

Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiance

Matched, Crossed, and Reached

The Program and The Treatment

The Fault in Our Stars

Looking for Alaska

The Giver

If I Stay and Where She Went

The Host

Twilight (Hey, it was the first chapter book I read!)

Anything by Maggie Stiefvater

I promise you I read these books before the movies were even said to be made! It is kind of driving me crazy how main-stream all of my favorite novels are becoming. Especially The Fault in Our Stars. I remember watching John Green's YouTube videos in anticipation of the book coming out! So many people have a negative view point towards any book that is made into a movie, but John Green's writing is so beautiful. I think that it is a must-read for anyone that likes fiction of any sort.

There is a link to my Goodreads account above.

Favorite Television

I have a television addiction, too. Thank God for Netflix! Here are my favorite shows/shows I am currently watching:

Comedies (my favorite type): The Middle, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Scrubs, 30 Rock, and Friends

Serious Shows: Gilmore Girls, Lost, and Switched at Birth

Shows about real people: House Hunters, House Hunters International, Property Brothers, The Little Couple, Kate Plus 8, and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

I will watch pretty much anything that comes on HGTV or TLC, as well.

Favorite Movies

I love movies as well! There are too many to name but I will list some of the ones I can think of: Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Twilight (I know, I just can't help myself.), Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, Star Trek, Star Wars (the original trilogy), Captain America, The Avengers, Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, Anything else Marvel, 500 Days of Summer, Mean Girls, A Cinderella Story, How to Train Your Dragon, Frozen, and Tangled

I also am a sucker for any Disney classics and some new Disney cartoon movies, as well.

Favorite Music

I love music. Here are some of my favorite bands and singers:

The Neighbourhood, Ed Sheeran, Muse, The Civil Wars, Imagine Dragons, The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford & Sons, Two Door Cinema Club, Taylor Swift, Brett Dennen, Ingrid Michaelson, Jake Bugg, Phillip Phillips, Lenka, Lorde, Fun., My Chemical Romance, Sum 41, The Pretty Reckless, Smashing Pumpkins, Bright Eyes (Conor Oberst), and Never Shout Never (Christopher Drew)

YouTube

I love watching YouTube videos. It is how I learned to crochet, sew, and quilt! I also watch some video bloggers and people who make sketches.

Comment: Thank you for the crazy blocks…. I think they are from you, there was no name to say who they came from :-/
Response: Oh goodness! I always put a sticky not with my name on it in there! It must have stuck to something else and not made it into the package. So sorry about that!

Hello!
I just wanted to leave a little note to say that I checked out your blog and I love your quilts you have on there! I can't believe that you hand quilted the one! I love to quilt but do machine quilting on mine. I can't imagine how much time that must have taken you. Pretty awesome. Anyway, have a great day! Jenna83
