This thread is for people to write up their likes/dislikes/ allergies etc for the season swap. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so on the other thread - I am a simple creature who gets confused easily, so I need all the names in one place!
So, if you have signed up - tell us about yourself here - what do you like, what do you hate, what inspires you, are you allergic to anything?
Im fairly easy to please! Love the colours of Autumn and the tastes and smells! I am allergic to cats, dust and feathers but cant imagine that anyone will send me any of them!!!!! oh yeah am veggie, but cant imagine getting meat in the parcel!
I’m happy to receive anything. However my husband does have various allergies especially to feathers and scented things (even naturally scented things like Lavender), so could I please ask that however is making for me, doesn’t include anything scented in any way, or I’ll end up with a husband with breathing problems.
I’m inspired by lots of things but especially the very crafty Mama’s on here. I love anything handmade, it doesn’t matter what the standard of the creation is, I just appreciate the time and effort that has been put in.
Not fussy here. I adore home made things whatever they are. I love all colours (especially rainbow colours or just purple on it’s own) but I’m always so excited about receiving the swaps that it wouldn’t matter to me what colours are used. I’m not allergic to anything and will just love whatever I recieve. (Sorry, not helped anyone who needed a bit of guidance have I?!!) You can have a look at my blogs to see a bit about me although I’ve not written in them for a long time!
I too love Autumn, i think for me that as well as the notable changes around us, i just love the excitement of Christmas being just around the corner! Definatly one of my favourite seasons, Autumn!
Anyway i have 2 beautiful little girls age 5 and 3. I love making things and although they are never perfect, its the thought that counts i think!! I sew a little, Knit a little (just learnt this summer) and crochet a little (learnt last summer!)
We (well especially me!) love all things natural, anything related to the season.
Also we all cherish anything that is home made, the thought and the time and effort! Love it, so excited!!!
Vegetarians here. I have two little boys 5 & 2 and I love anything neutral and simple with bits or turquoise, duck egg blue and lime green creeping in as well as a bit of yellow that is quite new and a big jump for me as I really don’t like warm colours very much.
artists that inspire me at the moment are: Angie Lewin and Hen’s Teeth.
Other than that I can’t think of anything helpful to suggest.
We are allergic to wool (sorry) and I am allergic to caffiene, although I can eat White choc, just nothing with cocoa beans! I have two not-very-Girly girls; Jude aged 8 months and Grace aged 3.5. Husband is a bit scathing of the whole season swap idea… :(
Things I actually *like* about Autumn: fires, candles, warm rich colours, butternut squash soup, blankets and slippers, White hot chocolate, sparklers….
I love autumn too, nights drawing in, snuggling by the fire, stomping in the crunchy leaves and getting to see the stars without staying up late not really allergic to anything (well I don’t think I’ll be receiving Elastoplast or kiwis!). Not veggie, and love anything handmade- really appreciate the time and effort. Love all colours but particularly more natural ones. And my 3 pixies are all girls: 4, 3 and 1.
