About Me

Hello from Wisconsin! We are known for beer & brats, cheese in every variety, the Green Bay Packers, the WI Badgers, country music festivals, WI Dells, farming, and Friday night fish fries. I live in a small town near the state line between WI and IL. I retired from teaching in 2014, after 33 years dedicated to students with special needs. In late summer of 2014, we got the devastating news that my DH of 28 yrs had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I lost him on Easter Sunday. To cope with the grief and loneliness, I renewed my love for crafting and it has been good therapy for me. I have a grown daughter, Heather, age 26, with no grands in sight. Some of my favorite things are: the colors pink and blue, paper crafting, learning new crafting techniques, taking pictures, journaling, baking, gardening, thrifting, reading, listening to music, (country), and spending time with my pets...4 cats and 1 dog. I love social media, esp Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram .

Themes I like: Woodland animals, anything related to botanicals, flowers/floral designs, bird art, combining paper and fabric, pink and gold combinations, field guides related to nature, hearts, dogs-esp. Beagles, Russian Blue cats, ( and all breeds of cats), animal lover in general, postage stamps, mail art, collage, camera graphics, reading/books/print, vintage inspired, lace trim, French Postal-script/icons, mason jars, cupcakes/sweets, butterflies, birds, (esp. hummingbirds, cardinals,and goldfinches) Tim Holtz style, baking/recipes, mixed media.

Things I'd Like to Receive: Address labels with a simple logo like a flower, bird, butterfly, or kitty, used postage stamps, old playing cards and postcards, snippets of fabric, lace, embroidery, ribbon, or textiles, old music paper, fun pens/stationery, vintage or vintage inspired images,memorabilia, tickets, napkins for decoupage, charms, textured paper, simple recipes, quotes, old book pages/ephemera for junk journals, positive/inspirational messages, handmade envies, book recommendations. I'll love anything you send, because it came from the heart.

Favorite Books

I enjoy talking, listening, and writing about books and authors. I'm excited to follow the Great American Read and the list of the top 100 favorite novels. Which book will win? I have a pretty wide range of reading interests. I like both fiction and non-fiction, but mostly read fiction. My favorite genre is historical fiction, with these oldies but goodies in my favorites list: Gone With the Wind, Little Women, To Kill a Mockingbird, My Antonia, and The Hiding Place. I also love the mystery/suspense/thriller genre, true crime etc....the last great book I read was The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn. (Highly recommend) And lastly, I love biographies and memoirs. . Recently started journaling about reading. I like to listen to podcasts that talk about books/authors. I'm the nerd that watches C-span Book T.V. (sshhhh)๐Ÿค“ and I recently discovered Book Tube.

Comment: Wow! What a fun package to get in the mail today! Thank you so much! I love the little pouch (hello, new makeup bag!) and the pocket letter is adorable...I've never seen one in person before. Thank you so much!
Response: Yay! I was hoping that you would like the rainbow themed pouch. I ordered it from Amazon. The graphics on the front pockets of the mini PL, would normally go inside the pocket. I thought you could dismantle it to use the pieces. I thought the felt pieces were cool, you usually see cards inside the pockets, (like an ATC). I didn't want to wreck the felt by sticking something on it. Happy to hear that you are enjoying it๐Ÿ˜Š

Holly, thank you so much for the note with my pocket letter... I'm thinking of you this season... I've decided that grief is a journey that some of us know well...
