About Me

Hi! I am an almost-done college student, and am planning on working in a museum. Museums and crafts are two of my favorite things. I love poetry and things with a message behind it. I am getting into ATCs these days and although I'm new to it, I enjoy getting creative with it.

Favorite Music

My favorite genres are indie, folk, bluegrass, and accoustic.I like music with a smooth sound to it. Some of my favorite bands are: The Weepies, Matt Costa, Bishop Allen, Rachel Bissex, Cat Stevens, Paul Simon, and Pete Seeger. My favorite artist in the world is Alexz Johnson, and two days from writing this, I will see her live for the first time. I've also become a big fan of Taylor Swift lately.

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite shows are Degrassi, Instant Star, Parenthood, Bunheads (I'm still getting used to it though,) Dance Academy, Life Unexpected Psych, Veronica Mars, and Gilmore girls. Lately I've also been watching gossip girl and pretty little liars.

Favorite Crafts

I love crochet, painting, and making friendship bracelets. I have been doing ATCs a lot lately and have really gotten into them. I tend to keep them pretty simple and often stick to hand drawn ones. I LOVE trying new things, and finding new ways to be creative.

Favorite Color

My favorite color is yellow, especially the yellow orange color of marigolds, but I also love rainbow things, and I've been liking green a lot more lately because I love nature things.

likes

Tea, cats, rainbow things, yogurt, camping, miniatures, things that are homemade, teen fiction, classic literature, NPR, this American life, Alexz Johnson, summer dresses, old letters photographs and diaries, houses that are historic landmarks, national geographic, camp crafts, dreamcatchers, candy, penguins, little boxes, stuffed animals, sappy endings.

I love anything that looks old or antique-y. I like to collect old photographs and religious phamplets.

other nuances

I am pretty much only doing ATCs right now. I probably won't be able to send extras because I don't have very much and am moving around a lot so I don't want to carry to much with me. I always try to make my swaps as good as they can be, but will likely not include too much more with it. On a similar note, I don't really feel like I need extras, a lot of times when I get extra things I don't know what to do with them. If you want to send extras that's fine, but it would be nice if they were related to ATCs. ATC backings are especially nice.

I love seeing what people make and how one idea can inspire people in different ways, so there is no real need to target it to my profile, I just want to see your art. : )

Also, I have NO intention of flaking on anyone, if you haven't received something from me, let me know!

Comment: 3+ years and finally getting a rating to you! I do feel bad and I am embarrassed about it also. I have been on an emotional roller coaster and I am hoping that it has finally came to an end. Life is not always fair. But we will survive! A while back, I promised myself to make right all the people and ATC's I have neglected to complete. It has been bugging me, as this has never been how I usually handle things. A few days late possibly, but always completed. I am so sorry about this and I do hope that this long awaited rating, will bring your paperwork to a 100% close at for anything I still owe you. If there is something else that you are missing from me, please let me know asap. Again ... Sorry!!!

Comment: I love the ATC. THis one is going into my keeper file. Where did you get such small pictures? I bet it was hard to cut. I actually have the originals of these in my collection. This is a great ATC.
Response: Sorry it took me so long to respond! I found them online and printed them out small. I had fun making this although it was kind of tedious, but I'm really glad you like it.

No, its fine. It is always nice to recive something i cant make myself. Or I have been crocheting some amis but I dont think i have the patience to crochet a whole bag.

Elin on Feb 26, 2011:

HAHA! I just made a huuge mistake while shopping fabric for the handbag swap. I had read both my send to partner and the partner I am going to recive from.

And I actually bought a yard of printed-yellow cause i remembered it was something about yellow. But you are not the one i am going to send to. Bummer.
