About Me

I am a homeschool mom, retired military spouse. I love crafts of all types. I am currently working on hair bows, Christmas ornaments, and pet toys. We have 5 cats, 2 dogs, 2 Guinea pigs, and 2 Chinchillas in our household. I'm a member of Postcrossing.com as Kskards. My youngest son has a rare genetic disease called Cystinosis so we are into promoting knowledge of the disease and its effects (there's no cure). I have an Instagram account also as kskollections.

Favorite Music

I love classic rock. My absolute favorite group is the Eagles! I was lucky enough to get to see them in concert! I also like Bad Company and Elton John. I do like a newer group called the Script. I am very eclectic in my taste. I like music from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, & 80s. I like classical, rock, country, pop. It all depends on my mood.

Favorite Books

My favorite author is Robert B. Parker. His Spenser series is my favorite! I also like Raymond Chandler, who happens to be RBP's inspiration. In fact, RBP finished RC's last novel. I named my oldest son Spenser & my next son Parker. I wanted to name my youngest son Chandler but hubby nixed the name. I also read Lillian Jackson-Braun, Carolyn Hart, Mary Higgins-Clark, Laura Childs , JoAnna Carl, Shirley Damsgaard, Madelyn Alt, & Agatha Christie. Mysteries are my favorite genre! I must not forget to add the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books too!

Favorite Movies

I don't really have a favorite movie or movie genre. I do really like oldies. Some of my favorites include White Christmas, Singing in the Rain, Pillow Talk, Dial M For Murder, & Tammy and the Bachelor. I love Tyrone Power, Gene Kelly, Doris Day, & Grace Kelly. I love the Harry Potter series.

Favorite Television

I like the cop/ detective type series. I like NCIS & its spin-offs. I like all of the CSI shows as well. I watch reruns of shows that I liked as a kid, like Emergency, CHiPs, Quincy, & of course Spenser For Hire! I also watch reruns of the Rifleman. Cartoons I like are the "oldies", Scooby Doo, Bugs Bunny, etc, plus the new My Little Pony. I dislike most talk shows & reality shows as well as American Idol type shows. I like to watch documentaries and other types like that. I like to learn.

Favorite Crafts

I am what my hubby calls a Jane-of-all-crafts. I don't have one particular craft that I excel at but I like many different things. I am currently working on learning about ATCs. I am making postcards too. I am getting materials to make wooden dolls. I wanna learn to crochet as well. Only thing I can't do is knit, not that I haven't tried many times.

Likes & Dislikes

I like many things. Some favorites include cats, bats, dogs, carnations, flowers in general, baking, genealogy, scrapbooks, the Steelers, & the Orioles, & the Phillies. There are many other things but I just can't list them all. I don't want to receive anything religious, political, or explicit. It is not that I have anything against these categories, I just don't want someone to try to push their views on me or anyone else. I don't send items in these categories for the same reason. Since I have very sensitive skin, I don't like anything with a scent.

Comment: Thanks for the awesome ATC. I haven't made any in quite some time, and I'm excited to get back into it. Yours is a great inspiration! Hope you and yours had a happy holiday. All the best in 2019! (So cool that you used to live in S.A.! Although it's not cool here at all right now. 😂 Yesterday I actually wore shorts when I ran an errand.)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

Hi! I just wanted to stop by and say I liked reading your November journal! I don't think that you are boring- you have so many pets and so much family around you, the husband and all the kids! Sounds like you have all the important things going great. You have so much love for animals and it sounds like a lot of work caring for your son. Your daughter is a great artist! Glad you made some money at the craft show! And, Definitely try some ATCs I think they are fun to collect!
