Spring cleaning swap 2017



In my signature


Makeup and skin care, any particular likes or dislikes?
No make up (I like make up, but simply own too much of it), facial cream (picky skin) or hand cream. Oh and no hair products, picky scalp as well. Everything else is welcome!


Any arts and crafts supplies you need?
No, not in need of anything. Unless you have something you think I'd like :)


What kind of staple items could you use?
Nothing I could think of right now.


Comic books? Any in particular?
No, sorry.


Would donate to a thrift store:
Yes, better than throwing things away.


Cats or dogs? Other?
Both. At home we only have cats and birds, but I love all animals.


Musical interests or preferences? Do you play any instruments?
I'm a big fan of Take That and Mark Owen as a solo artist. That's kind of a guilty pleasure :) Besides that, I like a lot of different styles, like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Lucy Spraggan, Nightwish (old days with Tarja), Marillion, John Denver, Concrete Blonde, Siouxie and the Banshees.


I'm not playing any instruments. My boyfriend sings and plays guitar, both accoustic and electric.


What's your favorite foreign country or language, that you might like to receive items related to?
I like asian countries, I feel very comfortable there. I also like Scandinavia and Norway in particular. I almost moved there in the past.
Costa Rica was my favourite holiday ever, because of all the animals.
I always love getting items related to any foreign country.


New Question: I'm a bit of a clotheshorse, and have a huge closet full of retro and vintage dresses and skirts, etc (think ModCloth, Sourpuss Clothing, Trollied Dolly, Unique Vintage, pinup and rockabilly-esque stuff). I wear a size medium or large depending on the cut (size 8-12 US sizes, depending on cut). Would you want any clothing from me?


Sounds great, but I'm afraid it wouldn't fit. I'm a size 12-14. If you have a size 12 that runs big, it's worth a try.


Is there anything that although you might like, you simply have too many of?
Make up
Candles or tarts
Showergel and perfume (but still like getting this hahahaha)
Mugs (but if you have something really nice I'd still love getting mugs )


Gently used items?
yes, that's fine to me, as long as there are no hygienic issues.


If I have something I think you would like, but would need to be altered, would you want it?
If it's altering I can easily do myself: yes. But if it needs to be taken to a tailor or something, that will probably never happen.


I had all the ingredients for a cookie jar/ bathsalts/ necklace, but they were separated, is it okay to assemble them, or no?
yes, I think it would be nice to get something like that.


How do you feel about hair accessories, including adornments like large flowers?
No, sorry. Right now my hair's too short for accessories but also when it's longer (I'm trying to let my hair grow), I don't like wearing hair accessories. I think that's because of the glasses I wear. I think adding hair accessories is simply too much.


Are there any kinds of patterns or pattern books you'd enjoy receiving? (e.g., Victorian/steampunk, RenFaire, or other costume sewing patterns; knit hat or scarf patterns; crochet animal/toy patterns; Swedish weaving patterns...)
Crochet animal/toys would be nice!


Cookbooks: Yea? Nay? Only certain types/sizes?
Nope. Whenever I get one or buy one myself, it ends up in a drawer forever.


Having individual items in my box gift-wrapped would be:
I think wrapping is fun! But not required. Whatever my broom decides!


New question!
Could you describe the style of your home/living room? A picture would be nice :) but you can also just describe the style and colors (or colors you dislike).


My own answer: pictures are on my Pinterest moodboard.

Would you use any lip color and if so, what are your preferences for color, texture, etc? How about eyeliner?
No, I use this very rarely and I have enough lip colors for the rare moments I want to wear it.


Bath and Bodyworks liquid hand soap: Yes please!


Bath and Bodyworks Wall Flower bulbs: No, wouldn't use it.


If you are a knitter, what is your favorite weight and fiber content of yarn? (fingering/sport/dk/worsted/aran? merino/mcn/acrylic/merino silk/bamboo/cotton?) favorite colors of yarn? Please don't send any yarn. I have too much of that.


Let's say your favorite foods/drinks was something that is hard to ship. Do you have other favorite foods that could be included in a swap?
- chocolate? I have a bunch of World Market sea salt bars (milk chocolate and blood orange, dark chocolate and dried strawberries), 64% cacao black forest cherry pie, bacon & chocolate, caramel & sea salt, PB&J, milk chocolate with honey salt almonds, ghiradelli squares (assortment), pumpkin pie almonds, etc.)
I love chocolate! But please don't send chocolate combined with fruits (white choc with fruits is ok though!), alcoholics or bacon/meat. All the other options are nice!


- protein/snack bars?


- tanka bars (buffalo/turkey/cranberry)? No thanks, I'm a vegetarian


What colors of nail polish do you wear, if any?
I don't wear nailpolish anymore since it started to destroy my nails :(


Are you interested in local honey or homemade jam (peach, cherry, strawberry rhubarb)?
Yes, sounds good!


I have a lot of fabric to make project / cosmetic bags (and some already made), are you interested in one?
Sounds awesone!


- Would you prefer a project bag or a cosmetic bag?
Cosmetic bag.


- What kind of fabric or themes do you like?
Little Pony, dogs, (sugar)skulls, owls, sheep.


- I also have a bunch of flannel with dollar bills for making some money mojo bags and some already sewn up green flannel mojo bags (empty), would you like one?
No thanks.


Do you use k-cups? No thank you.


Most wanted to try BPAL, Arcana, NAVA, etc.?
My BPAL wishlist is in my sig. I don't know much about NAVA or Arcana, but I'd love to try something that meets my favorite notes.


Pipettes? I buy in bulk so I have a ton of them for decanting. No thanks, I have plenty.


I have a few pairs of fingerless mitts knit up (purple or grey), do you wear such things?


I also have a small shawlette/neckerchief that I knit (but have never worn) in glittery grey yarn with little bits of purple mixed in. No lace or floofiness so doesn't need to be blocked ever. Yay/nay?
That's a nay, sorry. I hate knitted things around my neck.


No, we don't have such a machine.
