I'm a librarian. I like crafts, knitting, and most music except country.
I tried very hard to use my phone as planner, but I need visual reminders. I carry around 2 Midori Traveler's Notebooks (regular and field notes size). Love them, and all paper planning goodies like washi tape, stickers, unusual paper clips.
Likes: movies, anything black & white, mail art, yarn, makeup, glitter, girly stuff, kawaii, handwritten anything, recipes, photos, note cards, Milwaukee Brewers, black and gold (go Iowa Hawkeyes!), postcards, stationery, peeling paint, altered and upcycled.
I love ATCs, but my skills at making them are just not there.
I love water and beaches, and my ideal vacation is going somewhere on the water and just relaxing and reading.
Of course I read all the time, but I also like to know what you are reading and why you like it. My personal favorites are:
1. Mysteries--especially detective novels. I love them with strong female characters, but I will read any of them.
2. Chick lit--again, strong females are my favorite 3. Romantic suspense--I'd put the Janet Evanovich series in this category, but Stephanie Bond books are better. 4. Non-fiction--craft books, cookbooks, self-help, business, new age. 5. Magazines!
If I like a book, I will sit down and read it in one day, two at the most. I can never answer the "what am I currently reading" question because the answer will be different tomorrow.
Dislikes: Not very much if it comes in the mail to me!
I'm not a big fan of "puppy & kitten" stuff. I have 2 dogs and 1 cat, and I prefer the real ones. I can't sew at all so fabric is just wasted on me.
