About Me

Here is the normal intro: My name is Marta, I am 25 and live in San Antonio,Tx. I am originally from Costa Rica, born and raised. My family is quite into arts, my mother has been a seamstress since I can remember, my brother went into screen printing, creating sticker logos, and graphic art, and my sister owns several restaurants as she is married to a chef. My step-brother is a baker and I am pursuing an Art Degree in College. My main interests are sewing crafts, handmade useful items, eco friendly anything, I am all about saving the resources and cooperating to become a greener planet.. Some of my general interests are: Acrylic Painting, Yoga, Japanese food, Japanese Culture and Art, Fashion Design, shoes, colorful markers, felt, organic baby food, baby fashion that looks nothing like baby style such as blah blah handmade toys and products, kawaii, vintage, striking new art, grafitti (I LOVE FAFI), anything handmade, anything knit, anything painted, anything sewn.

Favorite Music

i loooove Manu chao, Feist, Regina Spektor, The Slackers, All kind of dancehall reggae, Violent Femmes, Common, Old rock..... the list goes on and on. I am open to experiencing new music all the time, although i must admit i am not very much into electro, dance music...

Favorite Books

My favorite book forever is The little prince, I read it the first time in Spanish, my native language, then read it in English not too long ago and the translation is really good. It is a kids book for adults, teaches you all you need to know about being humble and understanding others. I adore that book.

Favorite Movies

Movies, woah, there are many movies i like, mostly in spanish... Amores Perros, Y tu mama tambien. My favorite american movie is Pretty Woman and i love all movies with Denzel Washington, Sean Penn, and Johnnie Depp, they are such a good actors

Favorite Television

I don't get to watch much t.v but i love Bravo channel with all the cooking shows, mostly enjoy watching discovery channel and animal planet, and my guilty pleasure would be those fashion t.v.shows with all the cool fashion and outrageous apartments.

Favorite Crafts

I adore anything handmade, to include, sewing, felt, jewelry, knitting, recipe books, painting, scrap booking. I think those softies toys are awesome and my favorite style is vintage, or pop art ( i know, to the extremes, but that is who I am) anything that looks old and used but in great condition and with character is perfect for me. My apartment is an eclectic mixture of IKEA products and vintage furniture. Right now I am all inot sewing, I am trying hard to start collecting fabrics and cool accesories.

I enjoy...

*Mushrooms *Color Red *Owls *Pop Art *Coffee *kawaii *polka dots *rainbows *Markers *Fafi *Vintage look *Paper crafts *sewing, sewing, sewing *buttons *feathers *beads *earthy looking jewelry *anything recycled *ecology-anyting pro-earth *fridge magnets *coin purses *head bands *black-white-pink combo *brown-pink combo *teal-fucsia-lime combo *journals *nail polish *coloring pencils *cool hair clips *recycle bags *tote bags *handmade make up bags *balck and white

I do not really care for...

I am open minded therefore I enjoy mostly everything, except...

*Barbie *scenery postcards *cowboy/western theme *glitter *western style *too much gold color in something *acid colors (hot pink, neon green or fluorescent yellow, no no please)

Other than that, I am sure anything you send I will absolutely enjoy!

Some of the style I love

Comment: Oh my goodness, Marta, where do I begin? You have really spoiled me! I love what you sent - so many goodies inside (yes, I peeked) and out of the super-stuffed eggs and so many fun extras. Socks, stickers, ribbons, lip gloss, buttons, seeds (love the organic garden), sticky notes, cookie cutters - I can't possibly list it all! I also loved the presentation - starting right when I opened the box, with the grass and the flower stickers scattered over the top - and all the jelly beans! And the wonderfully decorated egg carton! I'm sorry I'm gushing, it's just that I got very excited over your package - I can't stop smiling! Thank you so much for your generosity and all the time you put into it. Stacy
Response: Oh my! I am soooo happy you enjoyed it! It was my first real swap as opposed to an email swap so I put a lot of thought into it and sent you only things I love and would have liked to receive myself! I am happy happy! THANKS

I want to apologize for rating everyone on the 40things you'd never thought to ask swap. I had a family emergency in my country - Costa Rica - and had to spend the last month down there with little or no access to email. I thank all of you for your understanding, know that I loved the emails I received and it was great entertainment for a long plain ride on my way back home.

Hi Marta, I sent my answers to the email swap 40 Things You'd Never Think to Ask on Aug. 21.

Could you rate me as having sent them? Thanks!

Hey marta just wanted to keep you posted on your package. I just checked the tracking and it looks as if the post office is a little behind. It just left PA today so hopefully it arrives in the next 3 days. The lady at the post office told me it will be a bout a week, but I am hoping for a quicker delivery. Hope you enjoy :o)
