About Me

Hello there! I'm a 32 year old middle school science teacher living in the middle of cow pastures. I have a borderline unhealthy love for NASA and space in general. My students just roll their eyes at me when I mention it. I am currently working on making healthy nutrition and fitness choices, crafting, and paying off debt (shoutout to Dave Ramsey!). I grew up in central Pennsylvania and attended Shippensburg University. Go Raiders! I'm an extreme couponer and love passing the knowledge on to my friends! I love geocaching and breaking out of escape rooms. I have been a member of Swap-bot for a LONG time, but disappeared for quite some time. I've recently started getting crafty again and am looking forward to successful and heartwarming swaps as an adult!

Favorite Music

I used to have a huge list, but in reality my choices have changed drastically over the past ten years. In the car I usually opt to listen to current high ranked podcasts, but occasionally turn on a pop hits or country station. At work and home, my favorite is acoustic playlists in the Amazon Music library.

Favorite Books

Reading is a great escape. I wish I had more time to read for pleasure, above and beyond my professional reading. Lately I’ve been firing up the Kindle and checking out the lending library for some easy read sappy happy-ever-after romance novels (not the 50 Shades type) or some mystery/detective novels.

My forever favorite novel will always be The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Favorite Movies

  • Documentaries of all shapes and sizes!
  • Sappy/happy girl movies
  • The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
  • 12 Monkeys
  • Save the Last Dance
  • A Lot Like Love
  • The Interpreter
  • The Butterfly Effect
  • The Secret Garden
  • Pride and Prejudice

Favorite Television

I don't watch tv often, but I do DVR a few shows.

  • Dancing with the Stars
  • The Challenge
  • The Good Doctor
  • Live PD
  • Me, Myself, and I
  • Intervention
  • Leah Remini’s Scientology

I also may have an unhealthy obsession with Family Feud and Judge Judy.

Favorite Crafts

I have officially completed two quilts and one purse! I am loving sewing and quilting! It is hands-down the best craft I have ever started learning! (As of 10/27/14 - my sewing machine is broken! Agh! Hoping to get a new one on Black Friday or Christmas!)

I enjoy baking and continue to practice my cooking skills to try to mold myself into the perfect housewife.

I can [kind of/working on improving]:
- knit - crochet - quilt - sew - cake decorate - cross stitch

I would like to make:

  • Amugurami
  • ATCs
  • matchboxes
  • magnets
  • quilt squares
  • small sewing projects

I love everything...

  • fabric!! (even scraps!!)
  • yarn, yarn, yarn

Comment: Hello! I received the journal today. Thanks a lot. I got to take a peek into your work/life! I love it! Made me smile 😊 My daughter’s experience in middle school was the best. She had been inspired by her teachers, and figured out she loved math, science and band. Great respect for you and all the teachers! Thanks for the journal and extras❤️

Comment: I LOVE my dotees! I have just gotten into them, and you sent such wonderful ones. The cat, of course, is my favorite. He is so cat-like, and I love his eyes. (Did you think he was a he?) The Valentine gal is so cute, and I cherish her heart. I like people who wear their hearts on their chests. I also appreciate the postcards. My granddaughters will enjoy them. Thank you so much for sharing with me.
