About Me

7/14/17- I don't understand what is happening, but in the past couple of weeks I have been getting mail returned for no apparent reason , and getting mail both to me and from me that is destroyed beyond recognition. If you have not received a swap from me please let me know and give me a chance to make it right.

5/4/17 : Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my mother's death and I spent the weekend going through everything in the home that I grew up in. It was a very emotional and exhausting process. When I returned home yesterday from the trip my kitchen counter was covered with happy mail that my husband had laid out for me to see when I came in the door. It brought me a lot of joy during a time of struggle and I am so appreciative of belonging to this community of thoughtful people.

I am married to my soulmate and have two talented daughters, 18 and 21. My oldest daughter is a baker for Panera ( not good for my diet) and my youngest is getting ready to graduate and wants to be a music teacher. I have worked my entire life in the mental health field and currently am the supervisor for a day program for adults with chronic mental illness. I feel fortunate to have found my calling and still love what I do! We have three fur babies- two Boston Terriers and a black Puggle who thinks she is a Rotweiler. They pretty much rule the house.

Favorite Crafts

I have dabbled in all sorts of crafts since I was a little girl and love the contentment that creating something brings. Currently, I am loving art journaling and collaging in my many traveler's notebooks. I recently acquired some of the new Jane Davenport supplies and have enjoyed creating a few mixed media girls. I'm also trying to use my stash of planner supplies to actually get organized, but seem to keep switching planners.

Favorite Music

I have every eclectic tastes in music- enjoy just about everything but country. Some of my favorites: Lenny Kravitz, Billie Holiday, Stevie Nicks, Muse, the Killers, Michael Franti, Coldplay, Lana del Rey, Bob Marley, Pink...

Dislikes

Anything that is mean-spirited, whether by words or action.

Do not underestimate a moment of your kindness- It has the power to change lives in ways you may never know.

Favorite Books

I used to be an avid reader as a child ( my favorites back then - The Little Prince, The Secret Garden, Miss Happiness and Miss Flower) I don't read as often as I should but do enjoy Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Virginia Wolfe, and Anais Nin. On the flip side, I enjoy the poetry of Rainer Maria Milke, T.S. Eliot and Rumi.

Favorite Movies

Crash Up Despicable Me ( love me some Minions)* Anything by Tim Burton and/or starring Johnny Depp* The Great Gatsby* Cloud Atlas* Pay it Forward* American Beauty Lion- what a beautiful movie!

Favorite Television

Downton Abbey* Penny Dreadful* House of Cards* How to Get Away with Murder* Starnger Things* Law and Order SVU Genius

Comment: Sent you a message about this a while ago, but you didn't even bother to respond.
Response: I am so very sorry, I would never intentionally ignore someone. I have taken a break from active swaps for the sole reason of trying to make right the swaps that I had to re-send. I must have accidentally deleted your email with a group of others, but I assure you it was not purposeful. I will send you a package within the next 2 days. Karen
