UPDATED: March 8, 2021
I'm from the middle of Iowa and am trying to keep the Muses from driving me crazy. I write, craft, and try to keep the inspiration flowing. I live with my husband and two rabbits.
I am part of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) and enjoy history with a special focus on pre-1600's heraldry and crafts.
We like to play card and video games, go hiking, watch movies, make stuff, cook, and a million other things.
Favorite crafts that I do:
Sewing stuffies, crochet, embroidery, tablet weaving, lampwork glass bead making, sewing, and writing.
Other crafts that I do:
I do a lot of random stuff so I am always forgetting something on this list... jewelry making, cooking modern/vintage/medieval foods, drop spinning, resin jewelry, etc, etc, etc. I like making stuff.
I just started getting into photography. I use a k-mount digital pentax camera.
Anything by Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman. I like humor and description. I also like Seanan McGuire, Jim Butcher, and Patricia Briggs.
I love fantasy and urban fantasy.
My tastes vary and I give anything a try. I am currently in love with the Folk Punk genre. I like alt, folk, banjo covers, video game music, etc. I'm weird.
Here are some of my current favorites:
I also love podcasts:
* Old Gods of Appalachia
* History of Rome
* King Falls AM
* Noble Blood
* The Magnus Archives
I like to write novels and short stories. My fiction tends towards fantasy. I do like reading stuff with a darker edge or crazy humor and I enjoy writing the same. But I enjoy writing with a variety of styles and subjects.
Current projects: Trying to remind myself to write on a regular basis.
I am always trying to get myself organized. I have so many things going on that I often am afraid I'm going to forget something.
Currently using a discbound junior size notebook (5.5x8.5) for my bullet journal. I've recently discovered Hobonichi style planners and am experimenting with them. I'm not really one of those that pretties up their planner - I don't have time and I'm always afraid I'm going to mess something up.
I use Scrivener for my novel writing and Google Drive for pretty much everything else.
I am trying to get into using 3x5 index cards as a commonplace book on a regular basis.
I love quotes. Especially ones about writing, from books, song lyrics, and ones that are inspirational without hitting you over the head with it. I also like quirky messages / quotes - "The pirates are here to sack the village, would you like paper or plastic?"
Other things I like:
* Tea (english breakfast and gunpowder green especially)
* Plain coffee, cold brew coffee
* The colors gray, black, dark blue, dark green, turquoise/teal/blue green, argyle, and varied stripes
* Quotes (see above)
* Pinback buttons
* Writing prompts
* Rabbits, Crabs, Goats, hedgehogs, gnomes * The Kraken (tentacles, ships, anchors, that sort of thing) * Skeleton keys
* Tea towels
* Handmade dish scrubbies and potholders (patterns work too!)
* Washi tape
* Mason jars
* Recipes from before 1960
* Crystals, semi-precious stones, neat rocks you found on a walk/vacation
* Bangles and bracelets (seed bead, semi-precious stones, cord, etc)
* Macedonian chocolate halva
* Nail polish
* Hobonichi, fauxbonichi, discbound planners
* Lip balm (Burt's Bees especially)
Please don't send me religious (Christian) things. I'm a Pagan and have been for ages.
I am running out of room for notebooks. Please don't send me notebooks right now.
Other things I DON'T like:
* The color pink and most primary colors
* Hibiscus tea
* 3D scrapbooking stickers
* Puffy paint
* Eyelash yarn
* Flavored coffee
I prefer 4x6 but 3x5 is just fine. I inherited my grandmother's old recipe cards and am enamored of handwritten index cards. If you have an old family recipe you would like to share, I would love to see it. We do like to can and we also have a pressure canner. Bonus points for recipes from before 1960.
Crochet / Yarn Swaps:
I crochet but I do not knit...yet. It's on my list of things to learn. I mostly do small projects like dish cloths, scarves/shawls, and amigurumi. I do not crochet sweaters, slippers, gloves, or blankets. One of these days I will have enough time to devote to an afghan, but today is not that day. I like wool/wool blends but I use acrylic for amigurumi. I use cotton for dish cloths and potholders. I do not like eyelash yarn.
Pagan Themed Swaps:
I'm a Hellenic Pagan and an eclectic witch that leans toward cottage witchcraft. I like herbs, crystals, and pendulums. I've been out of practice for ages and I keep meaning to get back to it....
