I'm 47. I like many types of art, and have gone through phases in life, always creating. Some phases I've been through.
If I am sending you a postcard or notecard, the colorful side? I probably painted that. Or tangled it. I like painting. I am not good at painting, so don't worry about finding a picture in there, but I like mixing pretty colors in pretty ways.
I'm fanatically obsessed with.
Other things I like, in no particular order.
As for who I am.
One died of SIDS at age 4 months and 5 days.
I'm from Minnesota born and raised
And the travel thing.
I mostly stay at home and
Grandkids are the very reason for having kids. They are so awesome!!!
My dad died 3 years ago, and I still miss him every single day of my life, and my ex (children's father) died 2 years ago, and I miss him more and more. I thought time was supposed to heal! I'm patient...
I'm newly into these things like ATC and inchies. So cool.
I mostly listen to books and NPR, but in the last couple years, Pandora and I have been working out my fave music. So here's some of my fave artists.
So that, whatever that is called.
I wrote what's below and decided it's a bit of a cheat. Of course I don't have one fave book. But I do quite like Les Miserables. And King's Dark Tower series. And then below are my authors.
I'm not entirely certain there is enough room. I read more than 200 books annually, but I definitely have a list of favorite authors, which includes, first and foremost, Stephen King. Then in no particular order.
Okay, there are so many more. But you get the idea. I like books.
This is easier.
I don't watch a lot of movies. But this is a selection of ones I have liked.
Oh, now this could be awhile. Okay. The top three, in the order I became a fan of them, are
And in no particular order
Much to my shame, there are many more. I'll leave it at that, though.
This was going to be a list, but I realized what I'd like to receive is something you put your heart into. If it's a postcard, it can be either something you are super interested in, or something that matches stuff I've written here. Just please no bible verses. I don't like that. If you want to pray for my soul, feel free, just don't tell me about it. :D I have realized that as far as postcards go, I mainly look at the side you have written on. Sometimes I forget to look at the "front" for days. So it's your words that mean the most to me.
ATCs - People here are at all different levels, and as long as I can tell you put your best into it, I love it! I mean, if you wanna send me green stuff, of course, I love that BEST, but actually, I truly love each one best. I mean, think about it. You are sitting down, spending time, sometimes a lot of time, creating a piece of art for me. Of course I love it!
Notecards - Again, as far as what it looks like, whatever floats your boat, or mine. It's your words I care about. Share a piece of you, and I love it.
Letters - The longer, the better, baby. That's all I'm saying. Also, PLEASE legible, because I hate when I try to read it and can't! So if you're writing a really looooong letter and your hand gets tired, set it aside for the next day or something, so I can definitely read it. I'll do the same for you.
Extras - Welcomed, but not required. I give hearts for people who put effort in. Who am I kidding? I basically give everyone hearts. Which means, if you haven't gotten a heart from me, I was either A: forgetful, sorry! Or B: unimpressed with your effort. I think that's happened once or twice ever. And I still felt guilty.
Also, I usually send extras, just cuz I like getting them, but on rare occasions, life is preventing me. Maybe I'm not home but I brought notecards to write. Maybe I bought notecards from wherever I am. Maybe I was finally finished writing out cards, letters, whatever, and I'm already in bed, and I can reach my stamps and address labels and washi tape, and simply cannot be bothered to get up and reach extras, so I just send a notecard, because I have some OCD tendencies, and one of them is when the thing is finished, you put it in the envelope and you put the stamp on it and seal the envelope and you send it. For whatever reason, if I didn't send extras, I'm sorry. But I really love writing (if you've gotten this far, you pretty well know THAT), so hopefully I at least connected with you and put my heart in the note. I usually do...
