Subject: Share alittle about yourself for the SS

I'll go first...I'm not a picky person. I love lots of different stuff. I'm not hard to please. I collect angels, my favorite color is purple, and blue. I can't have stuff that smells strong due to asthma, and lung issues. My house is done in southwestern. I love to bead, and crochet.

I'm not a picky person either, unless it's lint. I like to do small crafts and I sew. I dabble in crochet as I am teaching myself from the internet and a program some nice SS sent to me. :) I like to do plastic canvas. I am an angel lover, too. I also collect sewing stuff for my sewing room like old needle cards, buttons, actually anything old but also like the new items like music boxes, boxes, resin stuff. It is only used to help clutter the room. :) I love clutter...I operate best that way. haha
I am also a Hummel lover, but I have quit buying the figurines. I do have some Hummel x stitches here and there around the house. My favorite color is blue.

I do not like candles, bubble bath and tissue box covers. My favorite color is medium blue. My kitchen is done up in bird houses. I love to receive plastic canvas patterns and books. Also would like patterns for easy crochet dish rags, doilies, & snow flakes. Love to receive plant starts from other people. (Only when it is warm enough to send them.) I am a diabitic. Pretty much would like to receive anything. JAN E mrse

Hmmmmmm.......okay my favorite color is green of any shade. As far as collections my mail obsession is anything primitive Americana, I have it in every room of my house. Crafting wise I love plastic canvas and little crafts that I can do with my 5 year old. We love to cook, bake and craft together. I don't care for chocolate but do eat it once in awhile when the craving hits. I am not hard to please or make happy. I live by the saying its the thought that counts! And as long as I am able to make my husband and my 5 year old happy then I am happy.. LOL

Just wanted my SS to know that I have really bad allergies and can't have any candles, lotions etc that smell. I buy unscented everything, laundry detergent, lotion, etc.
I collect lots of stuff, angels, snowmen, santas, bunnies, bears, old tins, old kitchen graters and old childrens sewing machines. My kitchen is cream and hunter, bedroom is mauve and cream, livingroom and diningroom is mainly cream. I don't do papercrafts (yet) or plastic canvas and I don't knit or crochet. I mainly do wood crafts now, but still sew and paint mailboxes.

Dear Secret Sister,
My favorite colors are light blue and light yellow, in fact that's what colors my craft room is done in.
I love, love, love Christmas ornaments.
I'm a chocoholic, I love anything chocolate.
I'm a big fan of Disney...Goofy and Tinkerbell are my favorites.
I like to do papercrafting, card making and scrapbooking.
I have pierced ears but can't wear anything too big.
I love to read mysteries (but not too scary).
I have a small collection of bookmarks that I'm always adding to.
I enjoy going out to fast food resturants for lunch once in a while like Mc Donalds, Wendys, etc.
These are just some of the things I like but I truly would be pleased with whatever my secret sister decides on.

I am very easy to please & really excited to be in this swap. Have never done anything like this before. I love bears & have some in every room of my house. I also collect porcelain (sp) dolls. My favorite color in purple followed by yellow. My living room is south west. You might say I just have a little of everything. Enjoy sewing, reading, pc & crochet. Just started to crochet so still really learning but do enjoy it. Have recently gone back to bowling & play cards at our local Senior Center. Can't wait for the fun to begin.
Hugs
Virginis

I like lavender and purple but not necessarily for decorating. My living areas tend to be country green, burgandy etc. Every week I tend to watch hoarders and try to clear out a drawer or two the next day! I love "unique" items or things. I have an unusual heart condition and I am in constant pain for which they have implanted a "pain pump". I do enjoy trying all sorts of crafts but I try to stick with crocheting and sewing so that I don't pile up too many extra supplies - boy is that a laugh. We also have a flea market booth during the summer so now you now that our extra space really piles up!

[[> Re: Share alittle about yourself for the SS -- HDMac, 12:41:39 01/07/11 Fri [1]

Oh goodness. I, too, am not a picky person. I love doing all kinds of crafts. I love to read and enjoy my friends and family. I love to cook and bake. Love cookbooks. Love recipes! :)I sew, crochet, scrapbook, do flowery things... always willing to try out something new and fun. Love to craft with my grandkids. The 2 scrapbooking projects that I am working on right now are my surprise birthday party in November and Christmas. I scrapbook each Christmas and share the albums each Christmas so we can look back and share those memories. :) I love to encourage others. I am a Believer. I have a blog that I enjoy working on. I collect angels and pigs and cookbooks. I am addicted to some games on Facebook.... sigh..........

I'm not a picky person either - very easygoing. I still work full-time so when I do have the time I love to cook, sew and read. I love cookbooks, recipes and new and unique sewing patterns. I collect angels and I'm a country girl at heart living in the city! I'm a total chocaholic - I go through withdrawals if I don't have it daily! When I have the time to get away I like to go to the mountains, lake - somewhere where there is open land! Looking forward to the swap to make new crafty friends!

I am easy to please also. I don't wear jewelery or wear strong perfumes. I love to do all crafts except knitting but paper crafts are my favorite. My home is done mostly in just country style, with variations ranging from peaches and blues to hunter green, yellows and tans. Another thing I love is teas of all kinds, my favorite breakfast tea is Earl Grey, also I love snowmen or snowladies.LOL Now as far as collections, I would say tea cups or tea pots, thats the theme in my kitchen. Oh, I am a diabetic so no sweets.:-(
and I am a recipe collector as I love to cook. this voy place is the best, so many wonderful ladies here that share so many sites and cute things. I am looking forward to this SS swap.Hugs, Bev(meme)
