Favorite Music

Country, some hip hop and dance. I am old fashioned and still buy CD's! I love listening to music on the CD's that aren't being played on the radio. Right now I have two radio stations on Pandora: Jason Aldean and FloRida.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy paper crafts, cards and envelopes. My favorite brands for rubber stamps are Stampin' up! and Close to my Heart. I enjoy pens and coloring as well. I like to try new folds with paper. I like to doodle and zentangle, though I'm not very good at it. I have been obsessed with pens since I was a kid. I use my dip pens when time allows; I'm obsessed with all sorts of different ink colors. I enjoy coloring with watercolor pencils-I'm learning to paint outside the lines! I'd love to practice doodling and zentangles more! I am obsessed with washi tape! I don't believe one could ever have too many tapes! I enjoy making envelopes out of old books, wrapping paper, and craft paper. I also have an abundance of craft paper. I love coloring! Whether it be stamped images or coloring books! I'm so glad coloring has gotten so much more popular!

I enjoy making body and household products, such as laundry detergent, and dishsoap. I've tried making body butter, lip balm, eye makeup remover, deodorant, and lotion bars. I hope to make soap one day! I love anything DIY!

About Me

I live in Alaska and love snail mail, paper crafts, reading magazines, nail polish, makeup, tea, coffee, and stationery. My favorite color is orange. I own two parrots and three crested geckos. I love most animals, especially owls, giraffes, frogs, and turtles.

I read several types of magazines, such as natural health, fitness magazines, nail art, card making and craft magazines.

My nail polish collection is larger than I'd like to admit...though I love every polish I own! I haven't counted how many polishes I have, though I'd estimate at least 800. I love indie polishes! My makeup collection is also pretty large (compared to most people, but not compared to makeup artists!).

I drink any type of tea, but my favorite teas are spiced (winter type teas) and fruity teas. I also love coffee. I have a keurig that gets used every day. I like flavored coffees, and love dark roast coffees. I add sweetener and creamers to my coffee.

I've been trying to make my mail art more interesting! I love anything snail mail related! I enjoy receiving decorated envelopes! I love stamps that say "snail mail" or "air mail" on them. One of my favorite ways to decorate envelopes is with washi tape or stamps. I love all sorts of stationery and notecards! Right now I'm especially enjoying kraft paper and envelopes.

I enjoy baking. I used to work in two bakeries, and those were my favorite jobs. My favorite thing to bake are cookies. I also enjoy making ice cream. My favorite homemade ice creams are peanut butter and mint chocolate chip.

In the summer I love going to yard sales and year round I enjoy thrift stores. You never know what goodie you will find!

Dislikes: I am not a "cat lover." I don't mind receiving cat related items, but I don't prefer them. I also don't burn candles in my home (though, I do melt scented wax). I don't like raspberry/chocolate and orange/chocolate type foods or drinks. But I love mint and peanut butter anything. Please don't send anything religious.

Favorite Movies

I like drama and crime type movies. Also, "feel good" movies. My favorite movie is "The Notebook." I don't like scary movies or too many musical type movies.

Favorite Books

Right now I'm slowly reading the Janet Evanovich "Stephanie Plum" series. I like to read non fiction as well as true crime books. Lately I haven't been making enough time to read-I'd rather write instead. I also love DIY books and cookbooks. I rarely use cookbooks, but I enjoy looking through them.

Favorite Television

I enjoy 48 hours, Dateline, The Voice, Alaska State Troopers, The Good Wife, The Blacklist, Quantico, and Blindspot. Since I'm from Alaska, it is fun to watch tv shows about Alaska! Alaska is a big place, and it is nice to see what goes on around the state.

Comment: My apologies for being late with this rating - I've been under the weather and have fallen behind in everything. I just found this tonight and have read it. I've not read the book but just might after reading the 2 pages. I've not read much since before Christmas so will put this on my list. Loved the frog stamp on the envelop. Thanks.
