About Me

I'm a wife of a merchant sailor and a mom. I'm not as active because being a mom is a full time job. We have 3 dogs! I love to talk, to craft (knitter and crocheter) and swim. Currently, I'm teaching swimming and helping kids who would like to be on a swim team get into shape! Before moving to New Hampshire, I was a swim coach in Seattle. I love to travel, and currently do Disney Cruises. I've been all over the world on a merchant ship.

I'm a fast rater! If I haven't rated you, it's because I haven't received a swap or if their is a note above about being away. I will rate as soon as I return home if I received while I was away. I promise to contact you as well as the Coordinator before rating a 1. If you haven't received anything from me, before rating, please contact me! I never join a swap I don't intend to follow through with, which is why I've been a member for years but have a very low count of swaps.

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, NCIS (all of them), Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,FBI, Blindside, Who do you Think you Are?, Elementary, Lucifer, Timeless, The Big Bang Theory, The Good Place, New Amsterdam, MacGyver,

Guilty Pleasures: Bachelor(ette), Bachelor in Paradise.

Favorite Crafts

I knit and crochet. I know how to sew and quilt but I haven't had time or the space to do it!

I decorate a planner (see below) I love stamps, embossing powders, stickers, washi, yarn, paper, pens, pencils, even erasers that are fancy!

Favorite Books

Percy Jackson series, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, Lorien Legacy (I am Number Four), I'm on goodreads under same name if you want to see what I read... I read a lot! I used to work at a bookstore!

Persuasion by Jane Austen. I love Pride and Prejudice but Persuasion is my heart! It's probably Captain Wentworth.

Thrift Shoppe

I love thrift shops, and antique book stores!

I usually look for: tea cups with matching saucers, steamer trunks, books (usually in children's), Disney golden books as well as collectibles (usually the classic characters and princesses)

Planner Love

I love washi tape (preferably 1/4" or 1/8" sizes) and planner/calendar stickers.

I am using The Christian Planner which is similar to the Passion Planner! (I still have my Filofax personal and I use the Happy Planner mini for on the go)


As mentioned above, I love Disney! I'm currently obsessed with Shellie May! Aurora is my favorite princess and I collect her stuff but I do love the other princesses. I also love Maleficent (movie and character) and have a collection of her too. Other favorite characters are Sven from Frozen, Pluto, Steamboat Willie, Cheshire Cat. My name is based on that cat.

I love Disney trading pins.

Tsum Tsums, I love them! I have a few but I'm picky! LOL


As in the Disney section, I love Tsum Tsums and other disney Kawaii from Japan and Hawaii.

Sanrio is another favorite. I loved Pochacco but he seems to have been retired. Hello Kitty and Melody but also really like Hummingmint.

I love Animal Crossing (by Nintendo) I play AC:NL all the time. I even have an EU 2DS to play in German (goes back to learning)

Tokidoki Donutella characters, Preferably Donutino and Donutina.

My Son

L was born in December 2016!

His current obsession is trains! He loves Thomas and Friends (Henry is his favorite). We have both the master track trains and some wooden trains.

He loves The Polar Express which he currently calls "Hot Hot" from the Hot Chocolate song in the movie.

He is allergic to Dairy (all animal dairy) and eggs!


I love animals. I have 3 rescue dogs currently.

My favorite Animals are: Bats/ Flying Foxes Sea Otters River Otters Sea Horses Sea Dragons Dogs Cats (though I'm allergic so I can't have them)


Comment: Good luck on your resolutions! I know how hard it is to find time for "me" with little ones around (I've got a 2 year old, 4 year old, and 10 year old).

Comment: Thank you so much! The great blue heron is one of my favorites. There is a rookery nearby where you can see them nesting in the trees! Loons I love too especially their call. They are only in my area during migration and nest further north. The tea looks great too. It’s 96° today so I’ll wait until it cools off a bit to try it. :-)
Response: I sent right the tea before the heatwave hit New England... LOL I would have sent an iced tea or a lemonade!!
