Married mom of 2 DD, 19 and 28 (wonderful son in law, too). Also mom to our fur baby, yellow/ orange colored kitty named Simba. He "chose" us after being born to a feral cat out in our horse barn. We also took in Simba's nephew Spike. Out of 3 kittens we trapped for neutering one decided to move in. He is just like his uncle Simba! Update: Cat #3 April 2013, Simona was a dump and clearly used to living indoors. We have rescued her. We have also taken care of ferrels, trapping them for spay/ neutering, shots, etc. We live in the country and have a horse barn to house them. Unfortunately our last 3 were poisoned, not sure if it was intentional or not, be we are heart broken over their loss. Updated 8/27/13 yet another indoor cat brings us to 4 inside. Another dump and rescue, Boo Boo kitty is a cry baby but so sweet and everyone gets along very well :) Fall 2014 came Cocoa Puff, a calico. A neighbor died and left 21 cats behind. The rescue lady placed all but Cocoa. We took her as a barn cat but by spring it was clear she was an indoor baby, so yes, 5 inside fur babies.
I am a Swap-a-holic, I love all kinds of paper crafts. I love to cook and bake. My favorite color is green and I love anything to do with fall including the colors of fall. We have lived in KY since 2005, relocating from upstate NY where my folks still live. I drink hot tea, hot cocoa, diet coke and love candy!
I am an intermediate crochet and knitter, a new addiction! Mostly smaller projects like scarves, hats, dish cloths, and catnip toys, it's a great activity in front of the TV, keeps my hands busy and slows down my snacking :)

My paper crafting style is eclectic I would say, I am kind of "all over the board". I usually am thinking I would like sophisticated, vintage/ heritage, but I usually end up with more cutsie and whimsical projects. I like vintage/ altered but end up with lots of bright colors. So there isn't really anything that is out of the question for me!
As far as my personal style I guess that is eclectic too. I am somewhat conservative, I like vintage, classic and some modern styles. I work full time in an office, "business casual", but when I am out with friends I have been known to wear some crazy jewelry, bright colored accessories, funky scarves, etc. I wear a lot of brown, green, fall and neutral colors, but I also have a thing for purple.

There is not much I don't like or can't find a use for. I don't care for the taste of black licorice or anise. I don't enjoy "slasher" movies or anything too gory.

I really don't watch a lot of TV, in fact I don't know how to use the remote, so if home alone, I don't watch anything. Outside of the nightly news, I do enjoy:
Everybody Loves Raymond
Big Bang Theory The Voice
This is Us (OMG, totally addicted)
2 movies I really enjoyed: Arthur (the remake), and Big Fish. Another older movie I caught not long ago and really liked was Evan Almighty.
I hardly read a book ever, just no time I guess. I read a LOT of magazines and enjoy them a lot, especially craft magazines and All You (Boo Hoo no more All you after 12/2015). I enjoyed:
The Christmas Blessing
The Christmas Tree
The Green Mile
I read Bluegrass which is a true story about a college student who was raped and murdered in her dorm room at WKU in our small town of Bowling Green
