Adventures in crafting...my obsession with yarn, beads, and scrapbooking.

This is me to a tee! I found the link on one of my favorite color swap pals blog. Very interesting.

You Have a Melancholic Temperament

Introspective and reflective, you think about everything and anything.
You are a soft-hearted daydreamer. You long for your ideal life.
You love silence and solitude. Everyday life is usually too chaotic for you.

Given enough time alone, it's easy for you to find inner peace.
You tend to be spiritual, having found your own meaning of life.
Wise and patient, you can help people through difficult times.

At your worst, you brood and sulk. Your negative thoughts can trap you.
You are reserved and withdrawn. This makes it hard to connect to others.
You tend to over think small things, making decisions difficult.
Yey! My Secret Pal rocks!

I got an email from my secret pal and I am so excited. I can't wait to see what she gets me. She sounds great. I am also excited to start shopping for my other secret pal too. I already have some good ideas from checking out her blog.

I have recently joined a Favorite Color Secret Pal Swap. I have added my anwers to the questions below:

Favorite Color Swap Questionnaire

1. What are your top three favorite colors? Pink, Red, Blue

2. What crafts do you really enjoy? Mainly knitting right now. I am obsessed with yarn, much to my husband's dismay. I also love to bead and scrapbook, and I am seriously thinking about taking up quilting again.

3. What products do you really covet? I have a passion for soft cotton yarn. Don't know why, I just love it!

4. What other activities do you enjoy besides your favorite crafty things? I love to read and spend time with my 2 boys. I am also addicted to tv. That's the best thing about being an insomniac, tons of time for knitting, reading, and tv that can all be done after the boys go to bed.

5. Is there anything you collect? Other than my obsession with yarn, I like fairies and butterflies.

6. What is your zodiac sign and/or Chinese zodiac symbol? Scorpio/Year of the Boar

7.What are your favorite……

scents/smells - I am an island girl and I love the ocean.

types of music and/or bands - Jack Johnson and Brad Paisley are the 2 big players on my ipod right now

authors? - Huge Harry Potter fan, love Garth Nix, Janet Evanovich, and of course Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

animals? - dolphins and turtles

places to shop? - anywhere that sells yarn, Michael's and Target

season? - Fall is my favorite time of year with Summer a close second

yarn/fabric/paper/other craft supplies? - love them all!

candies or goodies? - Believe it or not, I don't eat chocolate, so I would have to say either caramels or any type of sour candy. I love black licorice, the sweet ones not the saltly ones.

9. Are you allergic to anything? - Unfortunately, I am allergic to cats, dogs, dust, and cigarettes.
