    yay, glad to have you on board i realized i didn't fill out my questionnaire...

    Amenable to food gifts? Yes/no

    preferably no as i live in an apartment complex and deliveries tend to get left on my front stoop. even in the winter, it's still warm here and i wouldn't want anything to melt

    If yes: any allergies?

    Is there a unifying color theme in your home? Post pics if you desire.

    my bedroom is red, white, and black, though is pretty filled with art at this point. my bathroom cabinets are white, walls are tan, decorations are muted shades of blue and green. the living room has the same color walls and i have the same color of blue for the couch. i have a lot of dark brown metal stuff too. the kitchen is my rainbow; that's where i keep the lunchboxes and colourful stuff

    Is there a unifying theme to your personal style? If desired, may post pics or a hypothetical Polyvore outfit.

    i either like being shiny and colourful or old school preppy.

    What was the last thing you made?

    aside from baked goods, i've been working on a painting.

    What are your hobbies?

    walking/hiking, playing the trumpet, biking, painting, writing, dancing, singing, crafting, baking

    Do you collect anything?

    lunchboxes (vintage only), sweater guards

    Food is always good and recipes would be even more appreciated

    If yes: any allergies?
    No

    My husband is the designer. We just moved into his boyhood home, so he's been having fun with color and making the space more our own. Our kitchen is a bright lime green. His tastes lean heavily toward mid-century modern while if I had more say I'd have more ethnic flavors a'la Frida Kahlo and Xochimilco. This is our hallway.



    Is there a unifying theme to your personal style? If desired, may post pics or a hypothetical Polyvore outfit.
    My personal style is sort of stuck in the 90's with vintage dresses and combat boots. I love hats and homemade jewelry.

    What was the last thing you made?
    I've been doing a lot of altering t-shirts and Izzy and I have been making some cool photo collages with her photographs. I'm trying to figure out creative ways to frame them.

    What are your hobbies?
    photography, bikes, sewing, journaling

    Do you collect anything?
    Since the move, my husband has been pushing the minimalist thing on me. But, I love snow globes and journals/notebooks.

    My projects didn't quite turn out as clean as I hoped. I hope you like them and there is one thing added because I saw it and thought of my recepient. So sorry, I didn't follow the rules right.

    I should have everything done by this weekend. Unless things go horribly wrong. I am trying a technique I've never tried before. Aren't you so glad I'm experimenting with your gift, Secret Santa recipient?

    I'm finishing mine up on Monday when I have some available studio time. It should arrive in time for Christmas regardless of postal method, but I'll send it priority to make sure.

    This summer I: Resurfaced bathroom and bar cabinets. Painted 3 rooms, 1 of them being a vaulted ceiling Put in carpet and thresholds. Fixed a wooden back gate. Installed and/or fixed electrical outlet boxes. Wired a flat panel on the wall with no wires showing. Installed tile in 2 bathrooms, one being a master Installed 6 custom vertical blinds, a set in a corner joint Installed an AC unit on the second floor window And put in a new sink in an upstairs loft.

    About 2 1/2 months of work but totally worth it.

    Hahah! That took a toll on me. By the end I was frantic and annoyed about it all.

    Hey Gunz, here is something I found to be surprising and very interesting! When I added you on Facebook almost a year ago, my girlfriend inadvertently piqued interest. Turns out you were one of her professors back in high school.

    Two thoughts I birthed from this new found kernel knowledge.

    1) You are still a cool and a great human being from what I've perceived over the years.
    2) You were my girlfriend's high school teacher.

    Thank you. I appreciate being called a professor, but I can't fairly take on that title. I figure your girlfriend might remember me from junior high. I only taught high school during my student teaching which was back in 1997. How long ago did I have her as a student?

    My gift will be a little late because I am a horrible procrastinator, but it will be out this week for sure.

    I'm glad it's a bit out of focus, because the details on the handmade parts are a bit rough.

    I'm glad you like it.
