Hi, I'm Carol!
I am a 40 (eek, yes 40! - my how time flies!) year old country gal. I like in rural Oklahoma on a plot of land that has been in my family for generations. I am a country girl, not a redneck or hillbilly. I do own guns and a fourwheeler, and I love to shoot skeet and go muddin' for fun; however, I am also an educated professional. I have a PhD in English (American literature) and I teach at a nearby university. I love nature and camping and going to the lake and river. In fact, we usually go for week long camping trips a few times a year.
Summer is my favorite time of year; I spend much of my summer reading books by my pool. I love any all all summer related items (from crafting stuff to stickers and paper to real items like beach balls for the pool). Spring would be a close second for seasons. I love flowers and spring colors.
I am using the Erin Condren Life Planner for 2015, and I love it. I have always loved scrapbooking, creating homemade Smashbooks, and journaling. Therefore, I am using the planner as part planner, but also as a sort of journal and place to record my day to day life (like project life). I also keep a normal journal/diary.
I have 13 rescue cats and 1 yellow lab; I love animals and the country life.
Family is also very important to me: I have a twin sister who lives on the same 100 acre farm as me (in a seperate house). My dad also lives at the edge of the property. My mother passed away from breast cancer four years ago, so my sister and I help clean dad's house every week, cook him dinner throughout the week, and spend some time with him when we can.
My fiance is the chief of police of a nearby small town; and one of my uncles was a police officer who was killed in the line of duty. Therefore, I have great respect for our officers.
POCKET LETTERS: I've just gotten into the pocket letter craze, but enjoy making them. I can use ATC size cards (not necessarily the decorated ones folks make, but blank/colored bases to use in my pocket letters)
WASHI NOTECARDS: I've also just learned to make washi notecards (basically I take cardstock paper and cute it into shapes and cover with various washi tape) and then adhere it to a notecard. These are so fun to make and send!
Cat/kitten decorations (stickers, washi, notepads, pens, bookmarks) - Any kind of cats/kittens (as my rescues are all kinds)
Yellow (white) lab decorations (stickers, washi, notepads, pens) -- I do adore puppies and dogs, but I only want items that are decorated with the yellow/white labs since that is what my Minnie is :) And the yellow/white lab stuff is hard to come by
Planner decorating goodies for the Erin Condren life planner (anything from chore stickers to to-do lists or washi tape or weather stickers or oliclips or any fun goodies)
Anything YELLOW (my favorite color)
Notepads/pens that are unusual or fun
Pretty notecard sets (notecard and envelope)
fun shape/color/design post-its
any breast cancer awareness items
police officer related items
Project Life cards
new (unused stamps) -- I can ALWAYS use these
cute/decorative/unusual ink pens
Frixion erasable ink pens
ATC size cards (colored or designed but not decorated already, as I use these in my pocket letters)
Bookmarks (especially those cute kitten inspirational ones)
YELLOW is my favorite color, but I also like the following:
Pastels (think baby blue, mint green, pale yellow, light pink)
Bright Spring Colors (think hot pink, bright sky blue, bright teal, green, yellow)
DISLIKES: I'm not really drawn to dark colors, like browns, blacks, maroon, olive green, etc
