UPDATE: I am back to doing what I truly think I'm called to do, being a nanny. (well as of today 1-4-2019, I'm looking for a new nanny position)
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. Newest discovery is AT Coins...I've been out of the crafting realm for awhile. Also discovering art journaling/smash books and altered books (LorriMarie Jenkins style)
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
Adventure, Psychological thrillers, suspense, comedies, dramas, romance, 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...
Shows I used to watch: Supernatural, Smallville, Ghost Whisperer, Law & Order: SVU, Without a Trace, Lost, Heroes, Friends, X-Files, Angel, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Firefly, Castle ('course I just love that Nathan Fillion!), Once Upon a Time. Shows I currently watch or will get back into: Elementary, The Rookie, God Friended Me, and Blue Bloods.
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, Crowder, Lauren Daigle. I like uplifting music... Almost totally listen to Christian Contemporary now.
