About Me

I live in MN with my dogs Buddy, Bailey, Sweetie, and my cats Oliver and Sgt Orange. I have about 5 pen pals whom I love writing to. Some are from the US and some are overseas. I love to read and write and be crafty.

Someday I hope to travel overseas and see all the breath taking views I see on TV, online, and in picture books. I hope to catch a fantastic scene with my camera. Something I can look back on and remember that I was there... I actually got to see it first hand. Someday.....

I just celebrated one year of being vegetarian (9.21.18).. I am in the process of switching to vegan. It started as a health thing and has only enhanced my love for animals. Best decision I've ever made.

Favorite Crafts

I love stickers and stationery. Since I do a lot of snail mail writing I'm always in search of these things. I am a horrible straight line writer however so I'm a big fan of lined stationery haha.

I make beaded earrings on occasion. I love beads, any shape size and color.

I LOVE photography. I go no where without some sort of camera with me. You never know when you're going to run across that perfect shot. Someday I hope to get those cards with the picture hole in the front, and start putting my pictures in them to send to friends and family. (or for a swap!)

Favorite Books

When I go to the library or bookstore to get a book I pick out books by their covers. I know that sounds crazy...since you never judge a book by it's cover... But I like to read pretty much anything and this method has yet to fail me.

The last few books I read that I absolutely loved were: The Next Thing on my List by Jill Smolinski and Timoleon Vieta Come Home (A sentimental journey) by Dan Rhodes. I also just recently read Modoc by Ralph Helfer... I recommend it to anyone.. I cried, I laughed, I cried some more.. it's excellent.

I love the way books smell and feel. There's nothing better than curling up with a blanket and cocoa on a cold rainy/snowy evening and entering the world of someone else.

I collect:

Posted postcards. Not just bought and sent in an envelope, but actually written on and posted from the location of the postcards home. Someday I hope to have a posted postcard from everywhere in the world.

My kitchen is decorated with pigs. I don't know what my fascination is with them, but they are just so darn cute.

I collect old fashioned keys. Not like a key to your door, but the ones that look like the key to the Secret Garden or the key to the grandfather clock.

I also collect candles. Although I don't really collect them and keep them, I use them. I love candles. My favorite scents are the woodlands one. The ones that usually come out around Christmas are fantastic. I also like the the ocean smells. Mmmm... candles.

My likes:

My favorites colors are hot pink, blue, and black. In all reality though I love all colors.

I love to cook and bake. I am always trying out new things. I have quite a recipe collection and am always looking to add to it. I'm a big fan of easy and quick, or hard with few ingredients... haha. I have just recently made the decision to live a vegetarian lifestyle and my new obsession is finding recipes that coincide with that.

I love paintings, puppies, and piglets. I love those little words that you put on your refrigerator to make poems. I love the stars, faeries, and colorful markers. Actually I'm quite obessed with stars... I love the way they look drawn, I love the way they look in the sky, I love their shape... I just love stars. I love nature, trees, pinecones.. the smell of freshly cut grass.

Favorite Television

My all time favorite show is the Golden Girls. I own all the seasons and have watched them about 3 or 4 times back to back. My second favorite is Murder, She Wrote. I have watched all 12 seasons a million times over!

I love watching The Biggest Loser and American Idol as well. I'm not really a big fan of reality TV, but for some reason I am incredibly hooked on these shows.

My favorite movie is Thelma and Louise!

What a cool profile you have! I, too, love books, The Golden Girls, photography, puppies and nature. It's nice to "meet" you!

I don't remember if I thanked you for angeling the Book Email swap? Regardless, thanks! :) <3

Thank you for the Duluth cards--I love, love them all! I really appreciate your doing the private swap, and can see my Mom smiling down about my having these in my collection. It has helped make a tough week better (she passed away March 3rd, twelve years ago now). I'm sure we'll run into each other again, and I'll be looking forward to it.
