Knitting, Crochet, Sewing. I would like to get better at watercolour painting and I love cooking, especially baking. I don't really do papercrafts except for making Christmas cards with my boys. I haven't tried making ATCs yet, but would like to see yours. Blank cards, sleeves etc to get me started would be welcome.
I've had a break from swapping over the summer but now I'm back and looking forward to getting back into it!
I live near Manchester in the UK and when I'm not working or playing with my two young sons I'm usually knitting. I like the outdoors - going for walks and visiting beautiful gardens. We have our own small garden and I would like to get more into gardening now the boys are big enough to join in! I work in the food industry and am interested in everything to do with food - I love looking through recipes. I don't eat any meat, although I eat fish and seafood. My favourite colours are purples and greens but I like all colours really. I wouldn't wear pastels or yellows myself, but would find a use for them! I love natural fibres with lovely textures. I like anything fragranced, especially jasmine or rose. I love all kinds of chocolate (not so keen on white, but my boys will eat it) My favourite is Fairtrade / organic milk chocolate, but nuts, fruit etc are all great.
Blur, the Stone Roses, the Killers, the Ting Tings.
Jane Austen, Harry Potter, books about history (especially food history). I'm reading "The Duchess" about the Duchess of Devonshire. I also like books about science and how the universe works.
I love movies! Anything directed by Danny Boyle, Tim Burton, anything with Johnny Depp in it. Amelie, Sixth Sense, The Orphanage, the Last King of Scotland, I'll watch anything apart from really gorey horror - I prefer a bit of suspense.
Heroes, Grand Designs, documentaries on science or history.
I wouldn't be ungrateful for anything someone had taken the trouble to send me, but these are things I wouldn't choose for myself: - Meat (so meat recipes are not much use to me) - Strong coffee - Forever Friends and those kind of cute bears - Pictures of kittens and puppies (I do like animals, but I prefer wild ones) - Earrings (I can't wear them to work, so my piercings have closed up) - Adults only stuff (my kids open my mail) - Disney, Barbie etc, but my children like Power Rangers, Star Wars, Toy Story and GoGos
