About Me

I am a wife, mom, teacher, artist, friend, goldfish keeper, daughter, sister, and optimist. No particular order.

I love happy things. I love my family. I have one precious little girl who is just a joy. She has such a great personality. She is 9 yrs. old.

I teach art at a high school. Mostly photography, but design/drawing also. I have been doing that for over 15 years. (Wow that made me feel old LOL)

We recently added a puppy to our family :) His name is Coconut. He is an adorable Cockapoo (cocker spaniel/poodle).

Favorite Crafts

  • photography
  • painting
  • sewing
  • quilting
  • paper crafts
  • journaling
  • mixed media
  • crafts for kids

Favorite Movies

love comedies :)

Meet the Parents is one of my absolute favorites! I can laugh just thinking about it.

Disney movies!

Favorite Music

I really love music. Most times I am listening to kids tunes...not by choice :) I like jazz, ella fitzgerald, phish, moe., tom petty, gin blossoms, classic rock, rush, beatles, pink floyd...

Favorite Television

I don't get to watch much of it, but I can get sucked into some shows. I love Seinfeld! We watch cartoons and sometimes I find myself watching even when my little one isn't around. I've gotten sucked into shows like Project Runway. Sometimes I catch The Golden Girls (love that show) or most shows on Food Network.

Comment: Loved the dominoe, cards and all the items, but it's the note that meant the most. My son (now 16) has a 4.7 GPA at the start of his Junior year and now we hope to find a college which will give him a shot. Pray for us!
