About Me

Hi there!

I am:

  • a wife and a mother to 4 boys (from 20, 11, 10, and 2)

  • a Virgo, Taurus rising, Scorpio moon

  • 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:

  • developing a daily creative habit

  • sketching

  • 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)

  • planner/ calendar decorating 😁 I don't have much to plan but I love to visit my calendar each day with stickers! I love stickers!

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

  • sewing

  • upcycling for said sewing

  • paper crafting

  • art journaling

  • mixed media art

  • jewelry making

  • crochet

TRAVEL NOTEBOOK info: I have an Erin Condren leather folio thing. At this time I have several types of A5 notebooks in there. I am making my own calendar/bujo/art journal/book of shadows mish mash for 2019!!! Yay for fun!

Things I'd be excited to get:

  • a zipper pencil pouch - not back to school but boho cute. ♡

  • anything that I can add to my Book of Shadows journal (size A5). Especially related to the moon, Pachamama, or Virgo.

  • 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

  • gnomes or mushrooms for my forest gardens

  • anything related to the moon or moon phases

  • anything related to herbs (cannabis included)

  • dangly charms and such for my travelers notebooks really want these

  • stationery - loose sheets or letter sets, note cards, envelopes

  • stickers

  • postcards (store bought or handmade)

  • wax for sealing

  • an inkwell/pen holder for my dip pen

  • ink samples (for dip pen or fountain pens)

  • fun shaped paper clips

  • labels to use for addressing envelopes

  • I love to try all kinds of teas.(My kiddos love Earl Grey)

  • tarot cards or oracle cards

  • dreadlock beads

  • A5 or smaller size booklets for my traveler journals (homemade would be wonderful)

  • anything with gnomes or mushrooms on it (stamped images, die cuts, etc.)

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

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

A little note:

MOST SMELLY THINGS GIVE ME HEADACHES

The exception to that is herbal type smells (lavender, rosemary, etc) or vanilla. These I can handle if they aren't too strong. Thank you for considering this before you mail. ♡♡

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. :)

Again, this doll! Tonight was a particularly stressful time and having Hera's Doll is a real gift, to say the least. Thank you for Her. I love the textures and the colors.

Be the love you seek in the world
