Hello, Canadian crafter here! Here are a few things about me:
I love animals! I have two cats and a wiener dog. My office window looks out into my backyard which is great for watching the birds and squirrels go about their days.
I grew up close to the ocean and go back as often as I can. Anytime I get a chance to spend time by the water, I'll take it! Beach, waterpark, lake, whatever I can get.
My favourite season is fall with all of the spooky fun and costumes to enjoy. There's nothing better than sitting with a cozy cinnamon treat and crocheting. An autumn tradition of mine is walking through my neighbourhood to look at all the decorations.
I've been a part of the Nerdfighter online community for over a decade. This group follows John and Hank Green, otherwise known as the Vlog Brothers on youtube. Their enthusiasm and charitable endeavours are so inspiring! DFTBA
Some of my top books to recommend:
The Book Thief - Markus Zusak ★ Historical Fiction, YA ★ Heavy themes content warning ★ Love the creative narrator choice (Death)
Crying in H Mart - Michelle Zauner ★ Non-fiction, memoir ★ Heavy themes content warning ★ Multicultural identity ★ Mother-daughter relationship
The Anthropocene Reviewed: Essays on a Human‑Centered - John Green ★ Non-fiction, essays ★ Heavy themes, content warning ★ Playful, self-reflective essays ★ Deep dives
My favourite crafts include:
☁ Crochet - lots of amigurumi and a granny square blanket in progress
☁ Cross stitch
☁ Drawing - doodles, sketches
☁ Bullet journaling
I enjoy watching movies at my local independent theatre. It's so interesting to watch movies made by international or smaller production companies to see stories from a different perspective. My favourites are usually dramas, thrillers, romance, or sci-fi.
Thrift shopping is a hobby of mine. It's super fun to search for treasures at my local shops. I like how it helps me avoid shopping for fast-fashion, be less wasteful, and save some money as well.
I listen to a lot of audio books. The apps Libby and CloudLibrary are awesome since you can access them for free with a library card. I listen to a solid 50/50 split of fiction and non-fiction titles.
Here are some themes, colour palettes, motifs etc. that I enjoy!
♥ Mushrooms, raccoons, cottage core, botanical, frogs, possums
♥ Maximalism and collage
♥ Rainbow, LBGTQ+
♥ A24 Movies
♥ Handmade art, cards, and drawings
♥ Pusheen, kawaii
♥ This American Life, RadioLab, 99% Invisible podcasts
Some things I prefer to avoid:
● Religious themes and imagery
● Neon colours
● Loose glitter or confetti
If you'd like to add a little something extra to swaps, here are my favourites to receive:
★ Washi tape samples
★ Handmade art or ATCs
★ Blank postcards
