About Me

Greetings, Programs!

I'm fortunate enough to be able to putter around the house, cleaning and crafting. I moonlight as a Medical Transcriptionist.

It's just my husband and I here in a little 50s house on the lake. Well, my husband and our 2 chihuahuas. And our black cat. And 7 chickens, but they have their own house to live in.

LIKES

Vintage/Victorian-style: Women, Medicine, Flowers, Insects, Animals, Transportation.

Art Deco

Old or old-looking papers: Book pages, Distressed or Dyed papers, Sheet music, etc.

Steampunk

Anything fortunetelling-ish: Palmistry, Psychic Readings, Tarot, I Ching, etc.

Stamps - especially international

Harry Potter

Many thanks to all who give me a rating!

Favorite Music

I'm a classical girl at heart, but I generally like all music except for newer country.

Favorite Books

I always love classics like Little Women, Pride and Prejudice, and Anne of Green Gables.

However, I'm also into the sci-fi of Adams, Asimov, and Clarke. I started reading an author named Barry J. Hutchison about a year ago. This man is wicked, laugh-out-loud hilarious. He writes a book called Space Team, and there are various sequels. If you like Douglas Adams, I highly recommend Hutchison! I've been playing his audiobooks on repeat for a couple months now.

My old standbys, however, are Agatha Christie or Earl Stanley Gardner. Poirot and Perry Mason FTW, am I right?

Favorite Crafts

I'm a hooker (crochet!) of 20+ years. I mostly crochet amigurumi for short-term projects, and blankets for long-term. I dabble in sewing. Simple things like skirts and pencil pouches.

My fave for the last couple years has been traveler's notebooks. I'm for Midori/Traveler's Company through and through. I use them for planning, free-form journaling, art journals, junk journals, wish lists, and project planners.

I'm just getting into junk journaling, like, altered book style. I'm so grateful to all the artists on YouTube who post tutorials!

I'm also active in the local community theaters!

Favorite Television

I usually have several favorite things instead of picking just one, but as far as TV is concerned, Bewitched is the best show of all time!

I love anime! I'm currently reading Fairy Tail, and I'm starting the show.

I like the usuals like Black Butler (Sebastian!), Tokyo Ghoul, and Sword Art Online. Don't forget Pokémon! I also like Blood+, Blue Exorcist, and Madoka Magica.

Continuing with the comic-bookish theme, I'm into Agents of Shield (I'm totally a Marvel gal, collect a few comics, too) and Gotham. We don't have "regular" TV, so it's mostly Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and Amazon. Have you tried the Google Chromecast? A-ma-zing!

Comment: Very Cool...... yes worth your time. I am envious that you have the opportunity to find cool PC's like this. I have not had the luck in finding stores with PC's. Not too many bookstores have survived here - it's the saddest thing. Thank you so much for the PC. Happy Holidays
Response: I feel pretty lucky there are several used bookstores in my area. The best kind with stacks of crowded books, a very loose organizational system, and that great old book smell. Hmm... think I'll go to the bookstore tmrw! Thanks for the heart and happy holidays to you, too!

Comment: I love your name! I love your handwriting. and I love the stamps you chose and the beautiful bird and I would love that carousel. we have one bout an hour away in a mall and another couple hrs away is one in Chattanooga tn . thanks bunches. bet that museum is cool
Response: Oh, golly (*^_^*)... Thanks! I was actually just lamenting my handwriting. I think the trick is to write slowly. That elusive "patience" thing! I just love, love the carousel and museum. The artistry involved is truly awe-inspiring. Thanks ever so for the heart!

Response: Yes, you may give me 7587 more stars! lol I'm so glad you like it. I don't really go out too much to get little papers and such, so my journals end up being more arty, I guess. And shucks, I can't believe I'm inspiring! lol Thanks for the heart (*^_^*)

Comment: Thank you for the washi samples! Yes, I can agree with you on fate. I do believe that everything happens for a reason and we end up places (good or bad) for a reason.
Response: I wish we always knew the reasons! Thanks for the heart :)

Comment: I can agree with believing in fate and I have to add karma as well.
