About Me

My name is Amanda and I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I am 25 years old. I am a Virgo, and my birthday is 9/7. I grew up in Upstate New York. I have a boyfriend, Christopher, whom was my high school sweetheart. We have a son, Parker, whom was born 10/22/09. I will be making my 19th trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida this May. It is definitely my favorite place. I LOVE Disney World, and Mickey Mouse. It will be my sons first trip, and I'm ecstatic.

I LOVE anything with an Irish theme. I'm very Irish, and very proud of it!

Favorite Books

She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb.
Dear John by Nicholas Sparks Any books about babies during the first year!


I have a three month old son, Parker, whom was born 10/22/09. Anything for him is good to me :)


Colors: Purple, Green, Red. Jewel tones. Brown.
Smells: Vanilla, apple, apple/cinnamon. I love masculine scented candles too.

Tea of all kinds, except chai or plain tea.

Crocheting! I love to crochet. I love yarn. In a very big way! When swapping, everything I send is home-made. I prefer to receive the same. After all, it is why I swap! I swap to see other peoples work, and to share my own.

I don't only love receiving yarn works, but I do certainly love those! I'd love a pair of knitted socks(I wear a size 10 shoe) but I know that's kind of a big request.

I'd love anything for my kitchen. My kitchen has a Irish theme. Green it is! I love anything Irish.


Colors: Orange, yellow Smells: Flowery smells, cigarette smoke ( I do not allow anything in my house that smells of smoke.)

Favorite Television


Favorite Crafts

I love everything homemade. Mainly, I crochet. And constantly! I've tried knitting a dozen times at least, I just don't get it. So, I decided to just put my effort into getting even better at crocheting. I must say it has worked! I've gotten pretty darn good. Yarn related swaps are my favorite!

I like scrapbooking, and I haven't even started my babies book yet, I have no supplies! I'd love to find a scrapbooking supply swap.

I also love to sew. I have a sewing machine. I'd love a fabric swap.

Wish List

Things I would just love to have:

Crocheted/knitted things: Irish themed coasters Irish themed scrubbies Irish themed dish cloths Socks! (Shoe size 10?) I've never had handmade socks before! Wash cloths for my baby boy Bookmarks Handmade bookmarks.

Clover/shamrock metal cookie cutter Scrapbooking supplies for a baby boy theme. Hand made bookmarks (any materials, but thin enough so the book isn’t damaged) Crochet hook roll. I use Susan Bates bamboo handled crochet hooks, so those would need to fit in it.
Irish stitch markers. Anything Mickey Mouse. Coupons for: Pampers Diapers Huggies wipes Maxwell House Coffee International Coffee

Comment: I've emailed you, pm'd you, even contacted you on etsy, all have been unread, and you have since logged on, I hate to give you a one, but extremely disappointed that the coordinator of a swap would flake on me, especially on a package swap she marked "sent" I've come to the conclusion it was never sent at all hence you lied, if it got lost in the mail you could of simply said that but no, repeated ignoring and all that is just wrong. Edit: This was angeled by the Lovely @TerryF
