Favorite Crafts

Recently we've had to move into a much smaller space, so I don't have access to most craft materials. I'm also finding that I need more organic, less restrictive crafts in my life. When something being 1/4 inch too short is that critical- it's really not for me. So, I'll be sticking with things that let me be a bit freer with sizing/shapes/colors/etc.

Favorite Music

My favorite music: Gogol Bordello, Katzenjammer, Gypsy Kings, Pink Martini, The Penny Black Remedy, Mastadon, Violent Femmes, Gossip, Beth Ditto, Kathleen Hannah, Sleater-Kinney, Neil Young, Matt King, Sturgill Simpson, etc.

A few of my favorite things

Most importantly- I like whatever you wish to send me. This list should not be taken as anything I "require" to be sent to me. If it's from the heart, I will love it.

---Note: I'm allergic to wool.

I watch movies of all kinds but the quirkier the better. I am mad about antique keys. I love French things- music, food, cultural icons, and especially black and white images of Paris. My favorite flavors are coffee, chocolate, cherry, and coconut. My favorite color is green. Other than greens I tend to gravitate to purple as well as creams and other earth tones- if it's red I like rust, if it's blue I like slate. My favorite animal is the rat, favorite bird is the Raven, favorite insect? Probably butterfly.

Favorite Books

I especially like reading modern fantasy and horror by authors like Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, and Stephen King. My current book is Crime and Punishment though, I don't tend to restrict myself to any one genre of literature.

If I had to choose an all time favorite book, simply for the impression it left on me, it would be "April Witch" by Majgull Axelsson. This is the passage I always seem to go back to: "I'd take one step backward and tip my head up so I could look him right in the eye. "Why did you make envy a sin, but not begrudging? It ought to be the other way around. It ought to be a greater sin to say don't let her have...! Than to say I want some too! Why should the have-nots, who have been denied everything, not even be allowed to want?"

It's a beautiful book.

Comment: I will be happy to change this rating when I receive the swap. Edited 7/25/2011 I got the atcs today that you sent for this swap. I am changing the rating to a 3 because it is a year late. And because atcs measure 2-1/2 inches by 3-1/2 inches. Your atcs are only 2-1/4 inches wide by 3-1/2 inches. That 1/4 inch makes a big difference. I do particularly like the dragon image.
Response: Sorry- life has sucked for me, my husband found your swap while I was in the hospital and dropped it in the mail. I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for giving me a 3 rating instead of a 1. Also, the ATC's were purchased commercially, so I assumed they were a standard size. Sorry if you can't use the extras.

Comment: I got this and it was nice, but it was not ATC size. ATCs need to be 3.5in by 2.5in. This was much smaller than what it needed to be! Make sure they're the correct size before sending out another, some people do rate down for it
Response: Understood, I had some mis-sized cardstock and it got mixed in with my correctly sized stock. Thank you for the positive rating and I apologize for the mix up.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Hi - You are my partner for the Read my Profile and Leave a nice Comment. I see we have some things in common, especially Skeleton Keys. :-) I make pendulums with different ones that I find here and there. And like you I love to read.

HI andria. I'm Rebecca from near to Toronto Ontario. I'm also a fan of coconut and chocolate and both together is even better! You should add a bit more to your profile. There's so much more if like to know about you. Then again, I do like a ing profile, mine might be one of or the longest on here!! I've read a few Atephen King novels but I stay away from the paranormal ones. I really liked 11/22/63 and it was amazing! If you know of any of his books that aren't paranormal, I'd love to know about them. Maybe leave me a note in your rating? I also really like images of Paris. I like black and white but a pop of colour is nice too. I'm working on a canvas right now that uses a huge Eiffel Tower cut from fabric. Have a safe and happy winter season!

Hello Andria! I can find little bits and pieces we share in common on your profile. Like you I love coffee, chocolate, and cherry flavors (not so much the coconut though). I haven't read much Neil Gaiman yet, but I am slowly working my way through "Good Omens" and I have really enjoyed it so far. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and have a lovely holiday season! Best, Megan - StagKing - Read my Profile and Leave a Nice Comment swap
