About Me

I'm a single mom of 4 sons. I currently stay at home because I am fighting Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. 💪 I have 2 little black Yorkies name Mindy & Harley & a "grand-dog" a black Lab name Nevaeh.🐶 We live near the beautiful mountains of NC.

Camping in the mountains & my craft area is my HAPPY places. ❤

In my spare time when I am feeling good enough for it I also like to kayak.

I'm a coffee & sweet tea kinda gurl. ☕

I get along with pretty much everybody but I feel more comfortable with being at home, in the woods, in the mountains, with one on one or a small group. I might be a little bit of an introvert. I guess you can say I'm not the life of the party...lol

I am a Christian & welcome any spiritual items. My fav & life verse is: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Phil 4:13

That verse has been my rock through so many things throughout my life. It has kept me going when I was ready to give up. God has given me the strength to get through some of the worst things a child/adult could go through.

Favorite Music

I like a lot of different types of music but my fav is 80's music & country music.

I think I prolly listen to 80's music more than anything because it takes me back to the "good ole days". LOL!

Favorite Television

I don't have regular tv or cable tv but I do watch Netflix & Youtube.

On Netflix.... I like watching Friends, Life Below Zero & Hawaii Five O. (and prolly some others but I just can't think of any others at the moment...lol)

On Youtube.....I like crafty videos, makeup videos, home/organizational videos & vlog videos.

Favorite Crafts

Crafting is what keeps me sane most days (unless I am in the woods camping). Since I am home fighting the horrible "C" word, crafting keeps my mind busy & off of the stress & what if's.

I have been crafting for over 20yrs. I have always loved crafting but when all 4 of my boys were small there wasn't as much time. Over the years I have done cross stitch (can't do now because of my eyes), some hand sewing (like for the boys), flower arrangements, wreaths, painting ceramics, made beaded jewelry, DIY's, card making, pocket letters, loaded bags, loaded envelopes, flip books & other paper crafting.

Currently I mainly do paper crafting, card making, pocket letters, loaded bags, loaded envelopes, flip books & DIY's.

I have been making Pocket Letters & doing swaps on Instagram & Pocketletterpals.com since Feb 2017.

I also love decorating my planner & bible journaling.

Favorite Movies

I love Chic flicks, comedies & some kids movies!

Some of my favs are:

~Happy Feet

~Frozen

~The Notebook

~The Longest Ride

~Safe Haven

~Fireproof

~Facing the Giants

~Courageous

~Coyote Ugly

~The Wedding Planner

~Finding Nemo

~Finding Dorie

~Liar Liar

~Grown Ups 1 & 2

~50 First Dates

I will let you in my postcard swap but for future swaps, you definitely need to add to your profile. Checking around to see other user's profiles gave me tons of ideas how to beef up my own when I was new. I also am sending you an invite to Newbie Helpers that will have posts in it to help you as you just start out here. Take care!!
