i know, it's been a while since my last post. i have just recovered from the Palm Springs tennis tournament where we made it into the quarterfinals...only to be kicked out with a loss at 6-1, 6-4. luckily they had a consolation round, where we made it to the finals but then again lost to the #1 seeds. thankfully, we had a crowd of adoring fans (3 of our friends) and looked fabulous in our matching outfits.
Favorite Color Swap Questionnaire
1. What are your top three favorite colors?
as a designer and creative person, my favorites are constantly changing. i guess it depends a lot on what i see around me, and the mood i am in. right now, i am totally into citrus-y colors: blood orange, tangerine, lime, lemon, grapefruit, etc. and perhaps it's the season but right now my eye is drawn towards deep rich pinks and reds.
2. What crafts do you really enjoy?
my absolute favorite has to be knitting. i have been known to also design and make cards. i'll do a sewing project every now and then.
3. What products do you really covet?
yarn. yarn. and yarn. hahahahah. and anything from apple.
4. What other activities do you enjoy besides your favorite crafty things?
tennis. digital photography. cooking. baking. designing.
5. Is there anything you collect?
nothing really, unless you consider an ever growing yarn stash as a "collection".
6. What is your zodiac sign and/or Chinese zodiac symbol?
scorpio and ram/sheep
7.What are your favorite…
scents...i guess would have to be citrus scents. my favorite candles are still the lemon and grapefruit kitchen candles from williams-sonoma (they also had a really great tomato one). they're so fresh smelling and not heavy and perfume-y. i guess there are some floral scents that i like too. it all depends what is producing the scent...i usually stay away from the fake, chemical smelling stuff...like the glade plug ins and things like that. i tend to like things that smell more natural.
…types of music and/or bands?
i really like all genres of music. except maybe gangsta rap and headbanger heavy metal.
don't really have any favorites
don't have any favorites.
…places to shop?
are you kidding? the gucci store. the gucci outlet store, even better. i LOVE places like sur la table, or surfas. i always go hog wild in a yarn store, oh and in target too.
like different things about different seasons. maybe the best answer would be the "rainy season"? since i love the rain so much. oh, and i hate the cold.
…yarn/fabric/paper/other craft supplies?
anything actually that is natural fiber content. oh, and as long as it's not alpaca, mohiar, angora....too itchy for me.
…candies or goodies?
chocolate, most definitely. and maybe some black licorice. or those peach penguins. peanut M&Ms (dark). salt water taffy.

yes, i do
9. Are you allergic to anything?
10. Do you have any pets? What are they?
cat named MIUSEY
11. Please include anything else you would like your secret pal to know about you- anything that would be helpful in finding you little gifts that you will really enjoy. Also, if you have a Ravelry ID, please include it here.
i am really picky. i know, this is not a good trait to post on a secret pal questionnaire, but seriously. i am. i tend to like things that have an artistic or designer-y quality to them. if it's something that looks like a designer or artist made - things that are not mainstream tend to catch my eye. but then again there is also a fine line of looking too crafty and home made as well, i am a stickler for craftsmanship and attention to detail. unless it's funkified, then there's the exception. you know, there are ALWAYS exceptions. oh, and don't forget shiny or sparkly. i gotta love it. oh, and i am skogknits on ravelry
