About Me

I am a mother of two teens. They keep me extremely busy. I work full-time as a Director of a Pharmacy School. I love crafting and cooking. I use it as stress relief. I love to make things and I would everyday if I could.

I like to sit with friends and talk about dreams and life. I LOVE to eat and cook. I like a glass of wine with my evening meal, so if you have recommendations, send them my way.

I am a Pinterest addict. THERE, I admit it! I have over 5,000 pins. It will take a lifetime to go through or try everything that I WANT to do on there.

I am a huge VAMPIRE fan! I have been since the 80's with Lost Boys.I was waaaayyy to young to watch it when it came out, but I had an older brother and sister that snuck past my mom and we watched it on VHS. LOL.

My love grew for Paranormal Literature when I read the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlene Harris.

I love gadgets and things that make life easier. I use photography, website design, and digital/social media in my daily job. My children are very gifted in the arts as well. They love drawing their own OC's and wow me every time they show me their latest work.

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music. REALLY, I like it all.

Favorite Books

I love, love, love to read.

I am a big fan of these authors.

Charlene Harris Stephanie Myers Francine Rivers Lyndsay Sans Nicholas Sparks

I like mysteries All cook books, new and old

Favorite Television

I love the Food Network and Netflix, and Disney +. Weird mix I know. Just don't have much time for TV with kids, school, job and crafts.

Favorite Crafts

My favorite crafts are making old things new. I also like making things to make people say wow, that is cool. I make necklaces, scarves, mini doll accessories, stationery, monogram things...the list goes on and on.

I like scrapbooking supplies and stickers. For the home, I like DIY crafts and pottery barn inspired ideas.

I am just starting to learn how to sew. I got a new sewing machine. I learned how to thread it. That is progress.

Post Cards Recipes - even better if they are from a different culture or family recipes :) Kawaii stuff Buttons (any kid big or small), Minature things, Books, Books, Books, Costume Jewlery, Beads, DIY Cards, dollarstorecrafts :) , craft ideas, written letters, the smell of summer rain, long naps, THE BEACH (because I live in the mountains), THE MOUNTAINS (because they are home).

Comment: Thank you Joy - your package arrived albeit being opened up a bit for custom check i think. I believed all items are intact. I realised most of our postages are more expensive than the contents itself. Thank you once again!
Comment: Hi! Got the pc for the next round and thank you for all the goodies! What a lovely piece of Happy Mail! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

I love the beach too, but I like to ocean because better than just the lake..Lake Erie which is right by me is known for it's dirty lake and beaches, Lake MI is nice though, but I still prefer the ocean beaches..And I live in MI, the coldest state ever I feel:)

Have a Great DAy:)

My name is Jeni and you are one of the people I got for Leave A Nice Comment #6 swap. I noticed we have a few things in common. I love Food Network as well. Although it drives my husband crazy because it always makes him hungry. I also love beads, buttons, written letters, naps and so much more. I hope you continue to get lots of goodies on Swap-Bot.

Hello! I'm in the Leave A Nice Comment #6 swap :)

I really liked reading your profile :D I love that you love to cook :) I do as well! I get that from my mom :) Do your little girls enjoy helping you cook?

The smell of summer rain is deff one thee best smells out there! My best friend's back yard is the Superstitious Mountains. She always sends me pretty pictures of them and it just is so amazing that something that beautiful exists all over the world :) It must be nice :) Have you ever gone hiking up a mountain?
