I love my husband, my three kids, art, gardening, reading, sushi, a wide variety of music, three-day weekends, flip flops, long walks on the beach... Wait, What?

Let me start over...

Hi ya all. My name is Candace. I am born and raised in Utah but I am a beach lover at heart. I told my husband that when we retire, which is many years from now, but I told him that I want to retire to a little beach side cottage.

I do enjoy art, gardening, reading and sushi. I would not say I am a girly girl, the only makeup that I ever wear is simple mascara which even that is very rare. I can't stand stuff on my face. My daily attire is jeans, t-shirt, and flip flops at least during the summer, oh who am I kidding as long as I don’t have to walk through snow flip flops are on my feet. I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, fishing, camping.

Favorite Crafts

I love art! I have been intrigued since I was a little girl. I took every art class throughout my school years. As an adult, I continue to take classes and learn from others as often as possible. I watch tons of YouTube artists.

Collage seems to be my current art media of choice. I love to rummage through and put unexpected items together. I love recycled and upcycled arts and crafts. Just the process of making something out of junk thrills me and doesn’t break my bank account. I do a bit of sewing, mostly mending my kids stuffed animals or altering their clothes or creating art dolls, dotee dolls, and little projects like that. I make jewelry that I never wear but happily give away. It makes me smile when I see family and friends wearing items that I made for them.

Favorite Craft & Art Supplies

  • Washi Tape
  • Vintage papers (Book text, sheet music, maps, Bingo cards, clothing patterns, playing cards, library cards, stamps etc.)
  • Children's book illustrations
  • Various found items like buttons, charms, beads, trinkets, keys

Favorite Music

I love most types of music. I grew up in a very musical family. My mom was in a bluegrass band, my brother was in a rock band, and my sister was the actress in many musicals. I have no musical talent. I can't play any instruments and I would get booed off the stage if I tried singing. But I love to sing at the top of my lungs in the car and in my basement when I am creating arts and crafts.

My favorite music at the moment is country and rock.

My favorite country bands are:
- Cam
- Rascal Flatts
- Little Big Town
- Sugarland

My favorite rock bands are:
- Queen
- Metallica
- Muse
- Disturbed
- Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
- Five Finger Death Punch

The music I dislike would be rap and that mariachi Hispanic music that is cranked up on construction sites.

Favorite Movies

  • All Tim Burton Movies

  • Despicable Me Movies (especially the minions)

  • The Princess Bride
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • My Fair Lady
  • Pitch Perfect
  • The Lord of the Rings
  • The Longest Ride
  • The Vow

Favorite Books

  • The Poison Study series by Maria V. Snyder
  • The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
  • Don't let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems (actually all his books)
  • Fable Haven series by Brandon Mull
  • Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
  • Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling

Looks like I like series.
