Project Spectrum Swap Info

I signed up for the May edition of the Project Colorswap, and Abigail put together this handy info sheet for us to post for our pals, so I've obliged. I'll try to get the button on my blog at some point, but frankly I have no idea how to do it...

Are you crafty? Not overly so, aside from the knitting. I go in phases of working on needlepoint, but it’s been awhile. I’ve just recently gotten into papermaking, which I guess counts as crafty.
Would you enjoy things like: Buttons, ribbons and embellishments? Ribbons maybe, but I’m not sure what I would do with the others
Do you dye your own wool? Yes! And it’s addicting
Do you like to scrapbook or make homemade cards? I have good intentions and a ton of scrapbook supplies, but because I am lazy I never really get around to doing either. Having a digital camera and thus not a lot of in-the-hand photos has not helped motivate me to get back into this arena.
What are your favorite scents? Vanilla, cinnamon, fruity things of all stripes. Basically anything but musk and related strong scents.
Do you like stationary and cards? Sure
Do you like to sew or embroider items? Not so much
Do you like beads? Yes! Along with the needlepoint I’ve gone through several beading phases and I’m always tinkering with the idea of making jewelry
What kind of candy do you like? What don’t I like?!? I like most candy but not peanut buttery things or taffy-like substances that my dentist doesn’t approve of. Oh, and dark chocolate - too bitter :(
Do you like hand lotions or soaps? Yes, they are an addiction of mine (along with the yarn stash there is a lotion stash)
Do you like to wear costume jewelry? Necklace, earrings, bracelets etc. Yes, especially necklaces.
Do you like to make/or use stitch markers? Just the simple kind – although I love the pretty beaded ones I’m not coordinated enough to keep them from getting tangled in my yarn…
Do you collect anything? Hehe…aside from shoes, purses, and yarn? Not really, aside from my extensive stamp collection (yes, seriously) but that is at home with my parents…
Do you have any allergies?: Smoke, food, fiber, pets,etc. No, but I’m really not keen on smoke.
Do you have any hobbies? Yes, and they’re all fairly active and outdoorsy. I’m very much into hiking and camping, as well as cycling. In the winter I downhill ski and snowshoe. I also read a lot, and as for more crafty things, aside from the knitting I make paper.
Do you like scented or unscented candles? Yes, both.
Are you a fiber snob? Hum…I was actually thinking about a blog entry on this very issue this evening. I don’t want to admit it but I think I might be. It’s not that I’m against acrylic, I like nice acrylic, but I definitely find myself more drawn to natural fibers.
Do you like to play cards or board games? Yes!
Do you like neon colors, pastel, light or medium ranges in the color of the month? Probably medium, or light. I’m not really a pastel person. I was going in that direction and then I dyed my hair dark and now pastels have lost their appeal…
Do you like kitchen magnets or key rings? Not really so into either of those.
Do you like picture frames? Yes, but I have tons, and few pictures to put in them (see above lament about digital cameras!)

Hi Emily!
As your May Project Colorswap pal, I'm
grateful for your info sheet. Enjoyed
giving your blog a read, wish I had started this whole knit addiction when I was your age...guess I'm a late bloomer in that respect.
Take care,
Thia
