About Me

Basic Information: I am a mother to an amazing college freshman who is going into nursing. Now that he’s independent I’ve got some extra time on my hands and have gotten back in to paper crafting.

Current Crafting Interests: *Paper crafts *Making homemade ephemera *Junk Journals—-❤️ making these so much *Christmas Card Crafts—- Christmas is my favorite holiday! *Craft Fair Items *Project Life

Thrifting—-I love the thrill of the hunt! Things I’m always on the lookout for include: *Little Golden Books- especially from the 1950’s *Jr Elf Books *Vintage Books for ephemera *Vintage Stationary *Vintage Cards-my absolute favorite! *Vintage Bingo Cards *Vintage Playing Cards *Milk Glass-especially hobnail *Vintage Patterns *Vintage sewing supplies *Vintage Christmas Items

Some of my best times are spent thrifting with my mother. We find so many great items when we are together and she always shares! My best recent find was a Christmas Carols Vintage Little Golden Book for $0.10.

In addition to being a mother, I teach high school students with special needs how to be good employees. I absolutely love my job and feel blessed to do what I do. My students run a school enterprise where we prepare lunch for approximately 90 people three times per month. The students are involved in every step in the process from planning meals to buying groceries to preparing and serving the meals.

I am also active in my local teacher’s union and enjoy talking to legislators about topics that impact public education.

Other things that make me happy: *Red Licorice *Haribo Gummy Bears *Warm, Sunny Days *Spending time with family *Christmas and any related activities *Elves, especially Christmas Elves *Nice pens *Essential Oils *Dogs-especially my two cuties Bruno and Shadow *Meaningful Friendships *Journal Embellishments *Pretty Ephemera *Project Life Cards *Tea, especially Chai.—-not anything with mint though *Hot Chocolate with whipped cream *My Gratitude Journal *Reading *Good Movies *Inspirational Quotes *Unused Stamps *Pretty Notecards *Giraffes *Polar Bears *Dogs & Puppies *Butterflies *Flowers *Vellum Papers *Fairies *Book pages in languages other than English *Vintage greeting cards *Washi Stickers *Mushrooms *Gnomes *Inspirational Quotes *Vintage Typewritres *Amity Bloom *Septeria 18 Tutorials

The sounds of water make me relaxed and happy. I listen to meditation music with water sounds to help me sleep at night. I absolutely love waterfalls! A beautiful waterfall picture makes my day. One of my goals for the next few years is to travel to see several waterfalls.

Things I’m not too fond of: *Teacher items- I already have a ton *Kiddie or reward stickers *Spiders and Clowns- both terrify me *Coffee—I do love the smell though *Things that smell like smoke

Books: I love to read but never seem to have enough time. I am currently reading a book to my students called The Positive Dog. It’s about gratitude and how having a positive attitude can change your life.

Some of my favorites: *Nancy Drew- starting to reread these *Inspirational Stories *Mysteries *Romance *Self-Help

Music: Green Day is my all time favorite band. A few years ago I took my son to see them at The Pageant(a small club) in St. Louis. The experience was absolutely amazing.

In the 80’s Depeche Mode, Violent Femmes and The Cure were among my favorite.

I am a huge music lover. I listen to many types of music, but am not fond of Country music. My son is a musician—violin and electric guitar. When he was younger—-and didn’t drive yet—-I took him to numerous metal concerts. Consequently, I have developed an appreciation for all types of metal music. My son and I even took my mother to a Ghost concert where she had a great time. If you ride in her car you will listen to her Ghost CD—Prequelle. I really get a kick out of that.

Received a nice piece of Mail art for SMSUSA 6 week snail mail. Mail Art can be overwhelming. I just look at what others do and try to come up along the same lines. It is funny because it still comes out my style. I had a nice Thanksgiving with family! Now onto the Christmas Season!

LadyJo on Nov 22, 2022:

Thank you for the great Christmas postcard with the list of icons! I had some of the same ones! 6 weeks of Snail Mail
