About Me

I am a divorced mother of 2 beautiful children, daughter 16 and son 14. We love spending time together doing anything outdoors. I enjoy traveling, which has led to my favorite hobby- postcard collecting.

I have recently developed a love of journaling. I am a notebook/journal junkie!!! I have been for years. I own boxes upon boxes filled with the most beautiful, unique, weird, artsy, antique, and just plain gorgeous journals ever. I would never write in them for fear of messing them up. Since beginning my art journal journey I now have a passion for "messing up" the pages with embellishments, paint, paper, found objects, and of course lots of writing!! I have several writing journals going along with art/junque journals and my Smashbooks. Oh, I'm having a BLAST!!!

Favorite Music

I am a huge fan of Neo-Soul music. I listen to lots of Jazz, classical, socca/reggae and country rock. I can enjoy really any kind of music except for heavy metal. I just can't get pass the screeching, piercing sounds of the guitar.

Some favorite artists are: Alex Clare, Jonathan McReynolds, Maroon5, Michael Buble, Floetry, Marsha Ambrosius, Florence & the Machine, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Melanie Fiona, Nina Simone, Lady Antebellum, Otis Redding, Jill Scott, Sam Cook,Harry Connick Jr, Rascal Flatts, Maxwell, Coldplay, Bob Marley, IndiaArie, Jazmine Sullivan, The Dixie Chicks, Anthony Hamilton, Billie Holiday, Najee, Nora Jones.

Favorite Books

I LOVE to read, however I haven't had the time lately to do as much as I'd like. I have come to love the work of Jane Austen!!! There are so many more I enjoy. I try to keep up with the Oprah book club so I am exposed to different genres and read books that I may not consider on my own.

Any recommendations?

Favorite Movies

The Count of Monte Cristo, Pulp Fiction, The Help, Dances with Wolves, Color Purple, Sense & Sensibility, Salt, Good Will Hunting, Nights in Rodanthe, The Time Travelers Wife, Tristan and Isolde, Memoirs of a Geisha, Finding Forrester, 300, The Great Escape, Serendipity, The Notebook, The Wedding Crashers, Dear John, The Shawshank Redemption, and Sarah's Key.

Favorite Foods

I don't have any food allergies.I love spicy foods! Indian cuisine is fabulous! I enjoy Chinese, Italian, Caribbean, Greek, Thai and seafood dishes.I would love to get recipes of traditional foods from your country to try.I ENJOY...

*fruit- I love them all!!!

*tea- any flavor

*chocolate- white, milk, dark (no fruit mixed in)

*Drinks- hot apple cider, hot chocolate (flavored is great also), water drink packets (Wylers, Crystal Light, etc.)

*Nuts- pistachios, walnuts, and almonds

*Sugarless gum (any brand, flavors)

*Good 'N Natural bar (cranberry almond)

The only thing I absolutely hate is licorice (any kind of licorice)!!

Things I Like/Wishlist

Journals for writing- with beautiful covers, something different/unique, handmade, colorful, any size, altered by you, w/prompts for me

Art/Junque Journals-heavy weight pages for painting, moleskines, larger size, nonspiral binding

SMASH BOOK- anything that I can add to the pages of my smash books would be AWESOME!!!!

I would love to have a mixed media/art journal page that you have created to add to my journal. Any theme of your choice.

I don't have a die cut machine and I would love any extra images you may have, or willing to cut for me. Any topic/subject!

Postcards

I have been collecting postcards for over 10 years now. I am active on Postcrossing.com. My favorites (right now) are Kaj Stenvall, Moomin, Anne Taintor, people in native costumes, historical buildings/places, UNESCO WHS, city views with the name on the front, and maps. I also collect bridges, courthouses, Universities/colleges, sports arenas/stadiums, lighthouses, windmills, cars, airports, and tourist attractions.

I DO have all 50 USA state maps.

I am looking for single image pc's with USA state bird or flower for the following states: Delaware, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Maine, Arkansas, Florida, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Oregon, Nevada, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah.

I am looking for single image pc's of USA state flags for the following states: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Maryland, New York, Rhode Island, Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, Florida, Iowa, Wisconsin, California, Oregon, West Virginia, Nevada, North Dakota, Montana, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Hawaii.

I've started a new collection of Chinatown cards from various cities around the world. So if you have a Chinatown in your area get a pc and let's swap!

I don't have a preference to pc's being sent stamped and written or mailed in an envelope.

I don't collect ad cards, or handmade pc's.

Comment: I am sorry. I wrote you but I didn't receive anything. If I received next time, I will rate again.
Response: I have sent and resent this swap, 15 cards total. We have PM'd each other regarding this swap mulitple times. It is unfortunate that neither envelope has reached you as yet. I am not able to send any more cards at this time. Hopefully one of the envelopes will reach you until I am able to resend a third time.
