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 almost 50 - that's lots of journals.) I've just started adding some "art" to my journaling and have been learning about bullet 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 22 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.

Favorite Crafts

Comment: Thanks!!! My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving which I know is really random but I like the togetherness aspect of it without the expectation to buy presents. I absolutely adore Christmas and I love buying gifts for people but I get frustrated with people who feel obligated to shop to the point that it stresses them out. I don't care if I don't get any gifts at all for Christmas, I'd rather get nothing than something that someone bought just because they felt like they had to. So yeah...Thanksgiving is my favorite :) What's yours?

Comment: I love the WWII postcard! It caught my boyfriend's attention first because he picked up the mail and he's a huge WWII buff. Great choice for the quote too. Thank you.
Response: You are welcome! I have more of the postcards if you should want to swap.

Comment: One of my favorite cities. I spent some time there on a land tour the first time I was in Italy. After a while, you don't remember which church/building/ruin you saw or where. Everything was fabulous! Thanks for the memories.
Response: You are very welcome!

Comment: Thank you for your postcard. My father-in-law always said: Snow? You suffer 3 times: when it falls, when it lies and when it melts. ;-)

Have you read the "unwind "series

BusyB on Jan 27, 2013:

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!
