About Me


UPDATE: I am back to doing what I truly think I'm called to do, being a nanny.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy working with different media. I like to find ways to recycle interesting items I find/receive. I love to scrapbook! Then I came across ATCs. I thought this would be a great opportunity to use my scrapbook techniques on a smaller scale. I am always looking for new ways to express my creativity. I've done cross stitch. I'm interested in learning the art of stamping and quilling. I'm getting into drawing now too.(mostly trying the human figure,face,etc., but want to get into landscapes), want to try crochet too (have instructions but haven't tried it yet) I've discovered Zentangle and am totally enjoying it! It's relaxing and a good creative outlet.

Favorite Books

LOVE to read! The only thing I don't really read are westerns and not much heady romantic novels (like Harlequin romance) or graphic novels

Favorite Movies

Adventure, Psychological thrillers, horror, suspense, comedies, dramas, etc. Love to see a good movie! some examples: Harry Potter series, Twilight Saga, Lord of the Rings, The Mirror has Two Faces, Pirates of the Carribean...

Favorite Television

Medium, Supernatural, Reaper, The 4400, Smallville, Ghost Whisperer, Law & Order:SVU, Without a Trace, Lost, Heroes, Friends (loved the X-Files and really miss it!), also love and miss Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Firefly. I'm into Castle now ('course I just love that Nathan Fillion!), The Vampire Diaries, Blue Bloods, V, I'm liking Ringer too (Sarah Michelle Gellar---Buffy, like her a lot too so hope this new series keeps going). Wow a lot of these shows aren't on any longer, but they're good to remember. Newer shows I like Once Upon a Time, Elementary. Not really watching too much TV these days.

Favorite Music

Although I would define my tastes as eclectic, I'm an 80's girl so almost anything from this era! My favorite is Bon Jovi. I don't care for heavy, violent/graphic rap! I like some "country". I've been getting into some Christian Rock lately-especially Third Day, Chris Tomlin, Jeremy Camp. I like uplifting music.

Passionate about

Dolphins, scrapbooking, Ireland/Irish heritage; being with family/friends, love stationary/office supplies, pens, pencils, markers


photography, lilies (Stargazers, mostly), anything Celtic/Irish, hearts, did I mention dolphins! & ocean/sea life, dogs (smaller breeds mostly, but love Huskies); going to garage sales/thrift stores and finding treasures to create with; purple (any shade) is my favorite color, then red, pink, blue, green; bookmarks, postcards, stamps


any violent/sexually graphic items; the color orange (except as pertaining to fall); anything depicting prejudices (unless it's to prove a point artistically)

Items I'm looking for

any embellishments, pretty/cool papers, ideas/instructions on stamping & quilling, ribbons, stickers (esp. vellum and epoxy), lace, rub-ons, jewels/beads, eyelet brads, vintage anything, going to try crochet too

I wanted to thank you again for the lovely Four Seasons ATCs. I don't rate my partners on when I receive the swap, so being late didn't influence one way or the other. I love the cards, you did a fantastic job and again, thanks for everything.
