2. I was born on Halloween.
3. I can make darn near anything.
4. I can fix darn near anything.

11. I love anything miniature; model trains, Zip zap RC cars, dragons, origami, books, doll house stuff, you name it!
12. I take Middle Eastern dance classes and love tribla-style and fusion dancing.
13. I live in a 2-bedroom apartment but can only use one because the other's packed with craft supplies.

This is a very cool list, Malinda!

And I love how the w/c pseudo-Moleskine turned out. Looking forward to posts of your mini-paintings in it :-)
