Favorite Color Swap Questionnaire

To help my secret pal in the Favorite Color Swap get to know me a little better, I've answered Nichole's questionnaire. Ya might wanna pull up a chair; it's gonna be awhile. Here we go...

1. What are your top three favorite colors? Pink, Turquoise and Yellow (mixed with either brown or black, of course)

2. What crafts do you really enjoy? Knitting, Crochet, Rubber Stamping, Scrapbooking, Cross Stitch & Painting (in that order)

3. What products do you really covet? Unique knitting needles - not your run-of-the-mill Clover (I already have all of those), pretty buttons, anything beaded and sparkly

4. What other activities do you enjoy besides your favorite crafty things? Reading, Running, Golf, Napping (just kidding...not really, napping IS one of my favorite things), Cooking (but not cleaning up afterward), Singing

5. Is there anything you collect? My husband would say I collect hobbies (LOL), Vera Bradley bags, bags in general (I love bags...I must have been a high-class bag lady in a previous life)

6. What is your zodiac sign and/or Chinese zodiac symbol? Aquarius (Que the band..."This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius....")

7.What are your favorite……
  • scents/smells? light florals (think "just out of the bath tub clean"), the smell of the air after the rain, fresh cut grass, clean babies
  • types of music and/or bands? Christian - Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Country, Classic Rock
  • authors? I read a lot; and I read a lot of different stuff. Modern Day Classics like "The Devil Wears Prada" or "The Manny" (Riiight, modern day "classics."), Classic Classics like "To Kill a Mockingbird", political books, Christian authors (Beth Moore, Bruce Wilkinson, John Eldridge), business books (like John Maxwell)
  • animals? I'm a dog person (I know! A knitter who isn't a cat person. Weird, huh? Go figure.)
  • places to shop? I'm not saying I'm cheap, but I don't like to pay full price for anything. So, Target, TJ Maxx, Nordstom Rack, Marshall's, get the picture.
  • season? Spring and Fall (Summer's too hot and winter's too cold. But like Goldilocks, spring's "just right.")
  • yarn/fabric/paper/other craft supplies? Any yarn (except Red Heart acrylic - itchy) and any fabric. I love Basic Grey paper, Stampin' Up stamps/inks, and just about any colored pen I can get my hands on.
  • candies or goodies? Oh please, do you have to ask? I love chocolate - any chocolate. Peeps, Whoppers malted milk balls (which is great 'cause no one else in my family likes those), Girl Scout Cookies...I could go on. How much time do you really have?
8. Do you have any wish lists? Nope; I'm very easy to please. Anything I get in the mail that's not a bill is a good thing.

9. Are you allergic to anything? Nope

10. Do you have any pets? I have 3 dogs - 2 mini schnauzers (one salt & pepper, one black) and a Border Collie. The black schnauzer and the border collie are rescues; the other schnauzer has "papers" and thinks she's "all that." We joke that she's a cat stuck in a dog's body because she's THAT snooty.

11. Other interesting/or not so interesting things about me:
  • My Ravelry ID is onecraftychick, but I haven't played very much there because of family, work and life in general. Plus, spending time there cuts down on my crafty time.
  • I love note pads and pens.
  • I love grosgrain ribbon.
  • I'm a pattern person - stripes, polka dots, florals....
  • I live in flip flops in the summer - have tons of them.
  • I never wear less than a 30 SPF (that pale German/Irish skin just can't take it).
  • I worked at a Hallmark store in high school & college so I love cards and stationery.
  • I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a BS in Health Science. (Not that I actually use my degree...see below for where I work. A degree in psychology might have been a better choice...)
  • I probably have more running shoes than you have black pumps.
  • I only own 2 suits, one black and one navy, and I wear neither.
  • I work for the Death Star - and like it most days.
  • I'm a freak for nail polish but only ever polish my toes.
  • I own lots of jewelry but still manage to wear the same rings and earrings every day.
  • I went to Italy and love, love, love it. It would take me all of 15 minutes to pack my bags for another trip there.
  • I like to drink wine - whites. Occasionally a red. Hardly ever a blush. And beer tastes better in a chilled glass mug (in case you needed to know).
  • I own 3 sewing machines but need to take a class or something because nothing makes me cuss like a sailor more than a sewing machine. (I'd rather sew seams on a sweater, weave in ends on fair isle or sew up socks in Kitchener stitch than have to sew anything but a straight line with my sewing machine. Was that clear enough for ya? (I'm just sayin'...)

Does that help? :-)
