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: Wonderful view of NYC! The only time traffic was bad here was when everyone was coming through here to get to the festival 118 miles from my location. Then again when they were leaving. I'm still laughing because every restaurant in this tiny town overstocked on supplies and no one stopped in to eat!
Response: Oh no!

Comment: Very interesting facts!!! And I've lived in Ohio many, many years (I'm not overly fond though :( sigh. I always feel the want to be elsewhere.) There's a few "me too's" between us! :)
Response: I hope I never have to move back to Ohio-Idaho is home!!!

Comment: Hi Bonnie, Hope you saw the full eclipse, I read about it in my news app. Thumbs up for your library to hand out glasses, as some people don't know about the permanent eye damage due to the first sun rays after the eclipse.
Response: I did get to see the eclipse and was glad to help folks out!

Comment: Thank you for the NY pc. I love the skyline. The first time I saw it, it looked just like that from the plane window. The eclipse was great. I love the stamp with your user name . . . I want one :)
Response: The stamp I use is one I got for $1 somewhere. I originally said something for St. Patrick's Day, but I carved that part out so I could have something blank for my username for Swapbot & Postcrossing.

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!
