About Me

I live in San Francisco with my husband of 19 years. I have two furkids, 1 cat named Spider who is pure black, and one teensy Boston Terrier, Zoie. I work with children as a school psychologist. My next big vacation will be to the Yukon to view the Aurora Borealis. I also dream of visiting Japan someday.

I love the scents of lavender and vanilla, the colors pink and black (alone or together), hearts, reading chick lit, coffee, good wine and food, Las Vegas, Niagara Falls, traveling, paisley, sock monkeys, martinis, lava lamps, VW Bugs, and clever, witty people! Additionally, I love all things related to relaxation. I am a big fan of bakery scents/flavors, such as cinnamon roll, cookie dough and cake batter. I like tiny polymer clay figurines, garden gnomes, hummingbirds, smiley faces and moose (the cute, happy ones!). I love things that are personalized with my name and/or initial(s). Sparkly and glittery things are great, too! I have discovered that I am embarassingly interested in the lives of others via photographs :) I am obsessed with organization and all things related to it. Some of my friends claim that I am a minimalist, but I just like to keep things simple. I treasure all things handmade.

I am NOT a crafter/scrapbooker/knitter/crocheter at all--due to lack of talent and patience. :) However, I LOVE to receive ANY handmade items. (Update: after a bit of swapping, I am getting a yen to start collaging again--I did it in college). I love stickers and paper products (postcards, notecards, envelopes, swap cards, etc.).

Favorite Movies

I LOVE most any movie with Edward Norton, Mark Wahlberg, John Cusack, Kevin Spacey, Nicolas Cage, Sean Penn or Andy Garcia. I will watch any Drew Barrymore movie!

Some favorites include Lost In Translation, Eyes Wide Shut, Broken Flowers, Sliding Doors, Garden State, Boogie Nights, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Crash, Mulholland Drive, Sideways and Sweet November. My all-time fave is Vanilla Sky.

Childhood Icons

I love Kermit the Frog and Curious George. I grew up with their movies and books! I was also a Judy Blume addict.

Favorite Music

My taste in music is fairly mainstream--Matchbox Twenty, Rob Thomas, Everclear, New Radicals, Live, The Killers, American Hi-Fi, Boston, REO Speedwagon, and Journey to name a few. I like Stevie Nicks, Sarah McLachlan, Natalie Merchant and 10,000 Maniacs. I am a big fan of the music from the musicals Avenue Q, Rent and Grease.

Favorite Television

I enjoy shows like Man Vs. Food, Samantha Brown, Kendra, Deadliest Catch, Dirty Jobs and Hoarders. I typically watch A&E or The Travel Channel, but recently discovered BBC's "How Clean Is Your House?" and "You Are What You Eat," both must-sees! I am also a big fan of documentaries.

Guilty Pleasures

I love attending Monster Truck shows (cringe) and hair bands of the 1980's. I am also a huge fan of the Las Vegas cult classic movie, Showgirls. :)

Happy holidays! You know, that Secret Santa swap still stands as one of the coolest swaps, and the kittyboys still love their custom mice; Oscar batted his under the couch yesterday and I had to retrieve it (there was much howling). Hope you're well and have fabulous holidays!

Hi! I am so glad you like your package!

I DID receive your absolutely adorable (Christmas) puppy card! OMG can it possibly get any cuter? Thank you so much!

JewelzyBug on Aug 21, 2008:

THANK YOU for my new wonderful package of notecards! You find the most beautiful boston stuff. It also reminded me I have been building you a pile on my desk to send. I'll have to do that :) Thanks again!!

Thank you for the lovely birthday card! ^_^

Thank you so much for the 2 postcards. I bet it was great seeing the whales. I would love to do that one day. My son loved the train postcard. He wants to ride it now. I think he has claimed that one since he is wanting to show everyone his train. :D

Thanks again. You are so sweet to send all these great postcards. ;o)

thatzghetto on Jul 22, 2008:

You find the most awesome things ever! Thank you for the YGM package. I love the little notecards and that comic wallet is too cool. Thank you so much!

ladyb on Jul 7, 2008:

Oh my....what is in that catstache?

Cookie went kookoo for that thing! LOL

Thank you for sending her a gift. And for giving me such great entertainment! :o)
