About Me

I was an elementary art teacher for twelve years, but in 2018 I left it all behind to pursue a masters degree in counseling and art therapy.

I have been married since 2005, and together we have one boy, born 2006.

General Interests: Art Therapy, Knitting, Space, Tacos, Bears, Street Art, Coffee, Breakfast, Board games, Disney World/EPCOT, Pens, Muppets, History, Feminism, LEGO, Punk Rock, Buddhism, Geology

I spin, knit, crochet, and dye yarn. I have done some yarn bombing, and I would love to do more. I love street art of any kind. Sometimes I like to make mini-zines.

I like Folk Art, and art that contains visual puns and humor, juxtaposition, and irony.

Music -- Folk, Punk, Pop-Punk, Grunge

Authors -Natsuo Kirino, John Irving, Ursula Heigi, Willa Cather, Larry McMurtry, Haruki Murakami, Guy Delise

Favorite Postcards: *Anything related to the above *Motels *Restaurants *Museums *HistoricalFigures *Funny (I love word play, visual puns, and irony the best!) *Vintage *Did you know?/Fact Cards

Comment: I'm glad to hear graduate school is going well. I loved visiting New Mexico, and imagine the ice cave was cool - but, oh boy, that postcard does not do it justice!

Comment: Thank you very much for all of your great postcards! :) That sure would have been a heart even without the fourth card that arrived today! :) I love that you picked each postcard with care (loved all of them) and wrote detailed about your December. Thank you for sharing your December with me! Seems to have been quite a busy month for you. And thanks for the nice stamps :) Oh, and I have to admit, that I like that the text is almost everywhere where had been free space, looks like lots of text then and adds detailedness to the card :D Wow, what a big school celebration, looks fun, my school never had anything like this ;) Looks like the children could do lots of different things there. Yes, I watched some of the cartoons as a child :) Best wishes!
Response: Thanks!!! I will message you my address:)

Comment: I love Norman Rockwell! I grew up in the town 15 min away. It took me forever to finally give in and buy Takenoko and I love it. It's great because people young and old can really enjoy it. I have Catan too.. but the same problem as you so it's still in plastic, ha!

Hi girl!

Just dropping by to invite you to join the new swap in the Butterfly Anarchists group, cheer up and join us.

What are you Reading now? Round 2

fruitbat5150 on Mar 18, 2013:

Thank you so much for your marvelous letter and the enclosures! I want to keep the yarn out and fondle it, but I bet my cats do too ;) I'll will reply as soon as my brain & time allow.

darzy30 on Mar 13, 2013:

I'm with you on the Zazzle PCs - a lot of our local stores are selling local artists' postcards that are printed via Zazzle or Vistaprint. It doesn't bother me, but I know some people feel very strongly about store-bought cards.

NicHahn on Jul 3, 2011:

I just invited you to be a member of Classroom ATC. Have you ever thought it would be fun to have you kids trade art with other students from around the world. I'm an art teacher from Minnesota, USA and I want to do a ATC trade with other art teachers so we can have a professional conversation to see if Swap-bot might assist in Classroom ATC Trades. Join our swap and group if you want to learn more.

I got your letter today! I will write back soon!

ohpossum on Aug 21, 2010:

Hope, i apologize for not writing you back (after our postcard journal thing) - I think you're way cool and still plan to carry out my letter writing campaign. I HAVE actually started a letter, but I just can't seem to get my act together on finishing it... sorry I'm such a slob! Ann

Hairsprayqueen on Jun 30, 2010:

Oh my! Thanks for the adorable mini zine you sent, angelling the pen-pal intro zine swap! It's so great (but I don't know what you meant when you said you used 'Pandora'. Eep! I don't understand American references sometimes)

(Also, I just about died when you said you had a friend who knew all the Elephant 6 guys!)
