Favorite Movies

These whimsical, visually stunning, and goofy ones

  • Sunset Boulevard
  • Freaks
  • Metropolis
  • Hugo
  • Coraline
  • The Birds.
  • The Wizard of OZ.
  • Return to OZ.
  • Pee Wee's Big Adventure
  • Anchorman
  • Coming to America
  • Repo Man.
  • Dazed and Confused.
  • Ghost World.
  • Zoolander

Wes Anderson movies are so good that I want to eat them.

Favorite Books

Always reading something and it varies greatly, could be science fiction, fantasy, or historical fiction. Biography, Ted talks(don't know where to put these), or old childrens science textbooks.

I HIGHLY recommend: 3/24/17 -The fifteen lives of Harry August by Claire North.
-The Borgias have been fascinating me lately, it's amazing that we have the details of these people's lives that lived so long ago. I get exhausted just thinking about their daily lives.

Favorite Music

Spotify is on most of the day, big audio dynamite currently. Frequently Go to: 80s alternative, Wilco, The Who, Monsters of folk, Jack White, and love finding new music!

Favorite Crafts

Anything handmade by you is greatly loved and appreciated, no matter your skill level.

I enjoy making papercrafts: pocket letters, postcards, atcs, and mail art. I just haven't felt very crafty lately so haven't been joining those types of swaps. I do continue to buy and hoard supplies of course.

I really love needle felting, but am allergic to the wool:(

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!

Thanks a lot for the blind valentine surprise mail! That's a fun idea to pick from your stash. Haha sympathy card would have been good. The scottie dogs are cute, this is the second time in twelve hours that "Santoro" (not to be confused with santorum) has crossed my path, had not heard of that brand before. I was on the website last night drooling over all of the stationary items I obviously need. I love the Richard Scary valentines! Are they vintage? The ape with the bananas was perfect for my sister. Happy VD.
