About

Hi everyone, my name's Mary, I'm 30-ish and I live in Italy.

I work as a sign language interpreter for Deaf people and I'm a huge geek. I have a very solar and happy-go-lucky predisposition towards life, and by now it has always done me good.

I am a really messy crafter and I don't have any favourite technique. I sew a little, I bind books, I work with Hama/Perler beads, paper, Creppla foam and a lot of other things. I cook a lot and really enjoy it.

I try a little bit of everything but never specialise in anything: crafting is a hobby to me, specialising requires studying and commitment and I don't feel ready for that, so forgive me if anything I swap/send to you is poorly made, I'm no professional but everything I make is made with love Happy

I try hard to make people smile and every time I succeed it's the best day of my life.

I try to recycle, upcycle, swap or craft anything I can, instead of buying new.

I really like:

- stash! Money is always tight, so if you're sending me something and you want to make me really happy, just throw in some stash.
- bears, especially polar bears
- the Princess Bride
- anything related to rolegames, especially Spirit of the Century, Savage Worlds, Deadlands Reloaded, Exalted.
- The Dresden Files TV serie or RpG
- stationery
- quotes
- sweets and chocolate (jep, gluttony's my favourite sin)
- anything sparkly (I know, I must have been a magpie in a previous life)
- silver
- anything colourful, especially if it's handmade

I really don't like:

- things that don't have a purpose (aka useless stuff)
- ornaments, knick-knacks and "dust-gathering" items in general
- plushies and amigurumi items (I live in a teeny-tiny apartment and have nowhere to keep them!)

Completed swaps: too many to list here (over 40!)

Sorry guys, I haven't been receiving notifications when someone posts on my profile, so if you post here and see I don't get back to you within a few days, try and message me or post on the board. I'm messaging Tom about some bugs I found, including the friends requests one - hope he manages to fix everything soon enough.

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!!
Lol so I am in an Avengers overload! I loved the movie so soo much! And the comic books! Ive bought like almost 100 comic books in the last few months and 75% have been avengers! Also I've been buying a bunch of tiny action figures that are too cute! Some are chibi or kawaii and some are regular but they're all under 2 inches. I even bought a tokidoki Thor charm for my iPhone Happy Anyways what's the plan for the Avengers swap? I have been buying extra avengers items for when ever we have the swap lol

Hey Mary, I sent a friends request a long time agoooo and I was wondering if it went through? For a couple other people I requested, they never received it, but it says pending on my side.
Just wondering if there is a bug going on.

Hi Mary
I was looking at random projects and found this one: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/rainbow_cloud_ring_2
it uses those plastic fashion strings that you have received! I just thought I'd share a different use for them.
happy crafting!

I just signed up for the horror swap and saw what you posted about only liking the first 3 seasons of Buffy before Angel leaves. Have you ever seen the Angel series? I think you would really enjoy them, they are more sophisticated than Buffy and guess who's the main actor...Angel Happy
