About Me

I live in central Texas with three precocious cats. I enjoy
* reading,
* paper crafting,
* journaling,
* planning,
* essential oils,
* knitting,
* gardening/xeriscaping,
* coloring,
* yoga,
* memory keeping smash book style,
* snail mail/pen palling/happy mail/postcards, and
* Bible journaling and study.

I read and write English.


I have always loved to read. I especially like mystery/thriller types of novels (John Grisham, Dean Koontz) and the occasional romance.

My non-fiction shelves consist primarily of Bible studies & theology, yoga, and genealogy & history reference.

I always have one hard copy fiction, one audible fiction, and 1-2 Bible studies going at a time.

media favorites

I enjoy television more than movies because I appreciate the talent it takes to keep the audience involved for years in a plot. All time favorites include Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Alias, LOST, Big Bang Theory, and x-Files. I may have been a Survivor fanatic since it started. :)

I get hung up on fascinating podcasts sometimes. So much so that I want to take notes on them. Like Serial, Undisclosed, etc.

I spend too much time pinning things I'll never do on Pinterest or in craft swap Facebook groups.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy knitting (I can only do parallelograms - nothing fancy! - but I'm all about the scarves and potholders) and genealogy.

I'm still trying to find my paper crafting niche....I'm experimenting with making cards, pocket letters, embellishments, flip books, etc. I also love playing with paint. I use journaling cards, stickers, ephemera, etc. in my journals and planners. I use napkins for Bible journaling. So many napkins and bits and pieces that I love...I need to get into collages and glue books!

journaling & planning

I love memory keeping (smash book style, a little Project Life style) and planning. I've had a paper planner all my life and I love seeing more people getting involved in it. Some of the things I'm currently using:

  • Hobonichi cousin avec - memory keeping
  • Happy Planner classic - swap and pen pal logs
  • Happy Planner classic - scripture writing & gratitude
  • standard midori TN - planner
  • standard midori TN inserts - Bible studies, errand runner, craft supply inventory (it's a problem that I even need this)

favorite things

I collect/hoard journals and notebooks and office supplies and paper crafting supplies and napkins. It's an obsession.

I also collect mouse figurines and images, Gorjuss girl mini stamps, and location/vacation spoons.

I love butterflies, dragonflies, cats, and mice so they show up in my crafting a lot.

snail mail stuff

POSTCARDS! I love collecting postcards around the world and am a postcrosser! Please write a little about yourself... what makes your town special, what you're currently reading, what your plans are for the weekend. anything!. I love them addressed, written on, stamped, and well traveled!

PEN PALS! I love snail mail and would love to have more pen pals, especially outside the United States.

sending/receiving swaps

I mark items sent once I leave in an outgoing mail box or the post office itself. If you don't receive, please PM me before rating. I may have a tracking number or other information to locate it and I am always willing to resend.

I rate upon receipt because that what I want people to do for me! But please know that I don't go to the post office to pick up mail every day. :)

Quick Profile Hello #1

I also love the TV series LOST! My husband was on short term leave due to minor surgery in August. While he was home we re-watched the entire series on Netflex. I had forgotten how much I loved the series and I was sad for the second time to see it end. In 2004 when the series was being filmed in Hawaii my husband and I were in Hawaii on our honeymoon. All the locals were talking about this new show being filmed and at the time no one knew what it was about...it aired for the first time a month later. Little did we know it would become one of our favorites. Enjoy the images below and have a great weekend!

Hello! I'm sending you best wishes from up north in Michigan! We have already had our first snow flurries of the year and I totally wish I could escape to the warmth down in Texas. I also love to collect postcards and have pen pals, I've never been to Texas but I'm sure it's fantastic! Happy early holidays as well! Quick Profile Hello #1
