About Me

Hi there!

I am:

  • a wife and a mother to 4 boys (from college age to not yet 1)

  • a Virgo, Taurus Rising

  • a creative soul with a timid confidence in the output of said creativity

  • a lover of calm and peace and love (good vibes... that sort of thing)

  • a lover of outside (started with the beach as a kid and now learning to love the forest as thats what is in my backyard)

  • an avid sports watcher - football, basketball, baseball, etc. ESPN is my go-to channel for background noise. :)

I love:

  • good music (country, reggae, old rock, classical)

  • when my kids are laughing

  • being alone

  • herb(s)

  • the moon

  • Bud Light and Southern Comfort

  • the Georgia Bulldogs, the Jacksonville Jaguars, the New England Patriots, the Boston Red Sox, and the Boston Celtics

Favorite Crafts

I dabble. I love to learn new things.

These are my current interests:

  • sewing

  • upcycling for said sewing

  • embroidery

  • learning to dye fabric and paper using plants

  • exploring my inner witch (working on a new Book of Shadows type journal - size A5, making a ritual space in the forest, moon magick, gemstones, candles)

These are interests that I keep going back to every once in while:

  • paper crafting

  • art journaling

  • mixed media art

  • jewelry making

  • crochet

Things I'd be excited to get:

  • fabric of all sorts!!
    *scraps in fun designs or colors and/or fun textures always welcome

  • tid bits (or larger) that I can dye w/out chemicals. *natural fibers such as silk, wool, cotton, hemp, linen, etc. *fabric, thread, yarn, handmade paper

  • anything that I can add to my Book of Shadows journal (size A5). I am exploring earthy witchy things - mostly interested in the light parts although not opposed to venturing into some dark spaces.

  • prayer flags that I can hang in my forest spiritual space

  • sage, palo santo, loose herbs or resins for smudging. charcoal disks

  • small mortar and pestle

  • anything related to the moon or moon phases

  • anything related to herbs (cannabis included)

  • stationery, note cards, stickers

  • postcards (store bought or handmade)

  • wax for sealing

  • fun shaped paper clips

  • labels to use for addressing envelopes

  • I love to try all kinds of teas.

  • tarot cards

  • dreadlock beads

  • A5 size booklets for my traveler journals

A little note:

I like to re-use things... especially packaging. If you receive an envelope that you can tell has been previously used - please don't be offended. Its my little effort to help our Mother Earth.

Also - feel free to message me if there is an issue with a swap. I am happy to communicate and definitely willing to re-send, if sufficient time has passed. I'm easy going... I promise. :)

Comment: What a pretty card!! I love the saying you chose, “Choose Joy” it’s something I try to do often these days. Your inside note was uplifting also. Thank you for the cute added bonuses, I can use them in my art journal! And have a cup of tea while working on it! Glad you decided to get back into paper crafting and I was lucky to receive from you! ❤️

Comment: This is probably the best box ever! Did you make the flag? I adore it. That alone would have made me happy...everything else, just over the moon! Thank you so very much!
Response: Yay! I am so glad you liked everything! I did make the flag. All materials were dyed this summer - even the yarn. :) Oh! and the mantra is from a lady I follow online - Sage Goddess.
