I AM MOVING DURING MONTH OF OCTOBER (and details + internet are still pending now, in November), SO IF YOU SEND ANYTHING MY WAY AFTER 1ST OF OCTOBER, PLEASE ASK FOR MY NEW ADDRESS (IF YOU ARE IN EUROPE, MAKE IT AFTER 6TH, AS THINGS ARRIVE MUCH FASTER TO ME).
ALSO, I MIGHT BE SENDING RIGHT ON DEADLINE OR A LITTLE LATE, AS I AM DEPENDING ON OTHERS TO GO / SEND A PACKAGE TO THE POST OFFICE AND THE MOVING HOME PROCESS IS MAKING IT EVEN HARDER. BUT I AM SENDING. LET ME KNOW IF YOU DIDN'T RECEIVE SOMETHING AND I'LL CHECK AND RESEND IF IT'S THE CASE.
Favorite crafts: Paper crafting and altering things are on top of them at the moment. Cards, albums, little decor pieces, quilling, (napkin, rice paper) decoupage. Mix a little bit of tapestry goblin, felt flowers and that's what I keep going around all the pieces of spare time I can get.
I'd be fine with handmade items from the below as well, not everything has to be store bought to please me. I like anything crafty, but this "season" my heart cries specially for:
*Vintage and retro stuff
*Baby themed items (preferably not english words, as the market is full of those and anyways english is not my native language. except, of course, it is something with a meaning, not a stamp/ sticker saying "baby"/ "it's a girl"). I do have a soft spot for mother&baby/ kids playing images, stamps etc.
*Cooking themed items (die cuts, stamps, charms, stuff to use for scrapbooking, recipe cards, smashing stuff) *Tea themed items (charms, stamps, napkins, stencils, fabric, handle from tea cups/ pots, tea towel etc etc)
*Alphabet letters (stickers, stamps, chipboard) *Fairy stuff
*Silhouette (stamps, paper, washi tape etc)
*Metallic and resin small embellishments (specially cute corners, name plates, frames) *Charms & chains *Filigree stuff
*Stamps, inks, embossing stuff (gorjuss is one of the fav)
*LOVE Jenni Bowlin inks and stamps and stuff
*Any Distress ink, StazOn, Memento or other good dye based ink (I own none, so any color is great!!)
*Stencils (and things that work with them)
*Flatback pearls, pearl trims
*Silicon molds (for food and clay etc)
*Ribbons and trims and laces (not simple/polka dot/ rick rack, I can easily find those for fair prices, but some with a pattern, texture etc)
*Texture paste, acrylic paint, mica powder or pearl-ex, stuff you'd use to alter things
*Burlap, canvas (specially sticky back)
*Flower sprays, stick-pins
Into peachy, nude, salmon, cream, butter colors at the moment;
rusty reddish and copper
Food & scents:
I do prefer white and milk chocolate over the dark dark one
I like cinnamon in my boiled red wine and on sweets hat go with it (or as a scent)
I like vanilla, pineapple, light creams, juicy stuff and always had a soft spot for caramel
Of course, as most girls, I tend to hoard beauty products, but I use more often:
* lip balm (in the summer, I look for watermelon or strawberries or fresh flavors, in the winter I look for subtle/ warm stuff. And this goes for most cosmetics and scented stuff)
* volume mascara
* eye liner
* face cleanser for mixt skin
* I like a nice quality nail polish, don't need/ want a big stash though
* I occasionally (lately quite rare) use L'Oreal perfect match foundation, blush, lipstick/ gloss and can't resist a nice eye shadow. Always on the search for a perfect concealer and powder, I buy them really rare, but care for the items.
I am an XS / 34, so, basically, the smallest there in the women section.
Also, I sometimes cross the line into the kids section and I own a couple of cool skirts and blouses that state "12 years old" :)
I like statement but fine/ elegant rings (I own a metal bow one for eg)
Cuff types of bracelets or very fine ones
Always like to try different and fun(n/k)y accessories, so go ahead and surprise me :)
My hair is really short at the moment, so no earrings except really small classic/ neutral ones
Always appreciated a good quality scarf that pops in the eye
Don't have any allergies as far as I know, don't mind the calories as I barely manage to gain a little weight even when I am trying to (which is mostly always), but I don't like:
- liver (only the smell can make my stomach crunch)
- dried fruits (mostly the currants)
Also, please don't send religious stuff (just don't think it's a theme to be "swapped"), key chains, they'll sit waiting for the dust
*Teenage vampire stuff *things that are full of hearts (it's ok to have some heart stuff here and there, but don't fill an album with heart patterned paper if you want me to not hide it somewhere out of sight)
My husband (and kind of me also) loves the kind of things you can find at thinkgeek.com. So if you want to surprise me/ us... that is a good place to find something to do it with. But no fart pillows, vampire teeth and that kind of silly things. My little girl will be 1 soon
In my 20s, mother of an adorable little girl, a dreamer about almost anything crafty and just a beginner for card making, scrapbook and few other crafts. Love the classic style, the pastels, (but also the strong dark ones or to play with the vivid ones and the intricate details) or the tiny but with a meaning details. Still, when I get to do something, I tend to overwork it, make it a little busy sometimes. Love the small gestures and attention that here and there make my day. given or received. And to go through my grandmother's old drawers, boxes (uu I like boxes!) and buttons for forgotten and rare treasures :) always did
I sometimes don't get to sit on the computer for a full day or even more, so please don't take it the wrong way if you do not get a quick reply/ feedback from me. If any issues with a swap was in, please contact me to see what happened, I will do my best to fix whatever the issue was.
We have 2 TVs - one in the basement and one sitting on the wardrobe. We do like to watch it since in a while, but generally we consider it full of rather ugly time wasting things and shows. When we do watch it, it usually goes on discovery, specific news that we want to follow and occasionally on sports. We do watch sitcoms and sometimes movies, and I watch a lot of Youtube lately :)
Trip hop, add some rock, little bit of pop, indie... I don't think I can put it in words any better
Schindler's list, Counterfeiters, Inception, The dictator (Sacha Baron Cohen's newest), Shwashank redemption, Lord of the Rings [lots of others, will add as I recall]
Series: FRIENDS!!! it is funny even after 10 years and seeing an episode for the 10th time Lie to me, House MD, Big Bang theory, Two and a half men, 2 broke girls, Once upon a time, Game of Thrones, Prison break
When I was a kid - Alone in the world, Hector Malot When I was in high-school - Red and black / better known as Le rouge et le noir Towards the end of the college I started working for a few years in book publishing. So I got to read more of what I was supposed to then what I happened to choose. But that implied also so many nice readings. One that was closest to my heart was Time traveler's wife that also got a screening in 2009 I believe. But in my (and many others) opinion, the movie doesn't do justice to the book.
