About Me

NOTE (June 10, 2018) We’ve just moved to a temporary apartment until our house is finished. The Post Office has found us and we’re starting to receive mail again!

I'm a 40-something Wisconsinite who spent the first 22 years of my life as an Army Brat. We lived all over the U.S. as well as Okinawa and Germany (3 times). I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in Communicative Disorders. I have been married to my best friend and husband for 22 years this April. We don't have any children, but have 15 nieces and nephews. I now work from home. We like to travel and take road trips and especially enjoy visiting our national parks.

My two "3" ratings occurred during a time I was dealing with some serious family issues. I should have let my partners know. I won't let that happen again. Both swaps were completed.

Crafting

I used to think I wasn't creative at all. I attended a Stampin' Up! workshop and began making cards, then moved to scrapbooking. Recently, I've been focusing on art journaling.

I like to use watercolor and acrylic paints, stencils, molding paste, collage, stamping, paper ephemera, various pens, tissue paper, etc.

I've also taken some classes in bookmaking and calligraphy but have some practicing to do.

Other Activities

I am a Postcrossing member and like to send and receive postcards from other countries.

I began Letterboxing a couple of years ago. I love the scavenger hunt and the stamping!

I enjoy flea markets and antique shops.

I like photography but don't seem to get out as much with my camera as I'd like to.

Favorites / Loves

Office/Crafting Supplies: handmade paper, washi tape, journals, old ephemera like receipts and books, buttons, ribbon, rubber stamps, journaling and calligraphy pens, notepads, sticky notes, almost anything!

Music: Christian - Francesca Battistelli, Love & The Outcome, For King and Country, Mercy Me, Casting Crowns, Jason Grey, Building 429, Lauren Daigle, The Afters, Big Daddy Weave, Christy Nockels, I Am They

Nature: trees, leaves, fall colors, spring blossoms, snowflakes

Decorating Style: mission style furniture, paintings/drawings, bring nature inside, warm colors

Teams: Green Bay Packers, UW Badgers

Collections

Dislikes / Don't Use

coffee, tea, alcohol (just don't like the taste), stickers (except alphabet/letters), perfume smells, candles, nuts, owls, glitter, sun/moon/stars, politics, “spiritual” images, recipe cards, Halloween (pumpkins, witches, vampires), snakes/lizards, address labels, coconut

I'm quite certain I resent this but was never re-rated. I recently (April 2018) sent another message asking if I could re-send or if they could re-rate, but haven't heard back.

Hello how are you? I wonder if you have already received my swap. My other partner swap already received it long ago and I'm surprised that even you do not. Please contact me Kisses
