About Me

Hi there!

I am:

  • a wife and a mother to 4 boys (from 19 down to 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:

  • I am learning to be a better planner and have started a bullet journal also.

  • 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

TRAVEL NOTEBOOK info: This is something new I am working on. I have several smaller dedicated journals for things and this will be a fun place to keep them all. I plan to make my own fabric cover - I have gathered all the materials... just looking for my Crop-o-dile to use for the holes for the elastics. I envision lots of dangling things from the spine and lots of bright colors. For now it's a work in progress. I am still learning all the technicalities but the goal for me really is to journal more this year(2018). That's it.

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.(My kiddos love Earl Grey)

  • tarot cards

  • dreadlock beads

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

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. :)
