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).
