About Me

Married, mother of three. Full-time Library Associate & adjunct online college instructor.

I love doing crafts, but haven't found my specialty. I love to "remake" envelopes, and swap postcards.

I love writing letters, getting letters, sending letters, writing family newsletters, making funny stuff to send in the mail. I even reuse junk mail (which I love to get) and make new paper or reuse the envelopes (not the kind with postage already on it for businesses - although I do love to send junk mail back to credit card companies). All things mail. I've even taught classes on correspondence. I used to have pen pals before, but they have dropped off, little by little. I've even read books filled with other peoples letters & notes & lists, etc. I have been happy to have some new pen pals. What fun it is to make new friends!

I've spent my life working with children in one capacity or another. Youth at my church. Babysitting. Facilitating workshops for troubled youth & their parents. Taking care of my own kids while having half the neighborhood at my house on any given day.

Love, love, love to read. Anything clean. I especially adore youth fiction/fantasy & kids books. Brochures. Flyers. Cereal box labels. You name it.

Have kept a journal since I was about 8 or 9 years old. (Now 47 - that's lots of journals.) I've just started adding some "art" to my journaling.

My living room is decorated in Eiffel towers. Anything french is awesome. I lived there for about 18 months. Used to speak more fluently, but have been learning spanish for the past 19 years (husband is from Argentina).

Favorite Books

The Hunger Games, The Outsiders, The Alchemist, Gregor the Overlander Series, Leven Thumps Series, Eragon Series, The Candy Shop Wars, Seventeen Summer, The Giver, Ink Heart series, Cinder, Legend, The Girl Who Came Home, The House Girl, scriptures, magazines, biographies on ocassion, blogs.

Favorite Television

CSI, Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, Castle, The Middle, Hawaii 5-0, Andy Griffeth Show, How It's Made, Dirty Jobs, Parenthood, Monk, Forever.

Favorite Music

Oingo Boingo, Depeche Mode, U2, Van Halen, Cinderella, The Cure, INXS, Aha, Alphaville, Pat Benitar, Phil Collins, Genesis, The Cutting Crew, Def Leopard, Duran Duran, Enya, Eurythmics, Bon Jovi, Asia, Robert Plant, Bruce Hornseby & The Range, Michael Jackson, Joan Jet, Journey, Mike & The Mechanics, most things 80's, The Piano Guys.

Oh wow! I LOVE the postcard you sent to me as a thank you card. Your own design! I am very inspired to make my own now but need to find info first. Your note made me laugh about the Connies you've known. HA! To answer your question about smash/junk journals... I have made two in swaps, currently finishing 2, one for a swap on the Bot and one for a friend. AND starting one for me this week! Awesome fun! Thanks again!
