About Me

I live in North Carolina with my two sons, my husband and a Shetland Sheepdog named Toby.

I work part-time in the clinical laboratory of a big hospital.

I like to take beach vacations in North and South Carolina. My husband and I took 3 Caribbean cruises in the past few years and I can't wait to take another.

Favorite Television

I like to watch Blacklist, Elementary, X-Files, Hawaii 50 and How to Get Away with Murder.

Favorite Crafts

I love Pocket Letters! I have been swapping pocket letters on FB for a few months. I like rubber stamping and all sorts of paper crafts. I make birthday cards for my family and friends. I love making prints using the gelli plate because you never know what you will get. I make journals - all sorts; for traveling or just to use every day. I have gotten into the coloring book craze. Collages are my new thing - I am enjoying some collage FB groups.

Other Interests

Another thing that ends up being a hobby of sorts is grocery store couponing. I am by no means an extreme couponer but I do spend time clipping and sorting coupons. It makes the chore of grocery shopping more fun. Plus if I save money I have more money for craft supplies.

I also plant a vegetable garden each summer for a supply of tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.

I like to do Catholic Bible Studies.

Jan 2018: I am sort of obsessed with my Instant Pot. I have been trying many recipes.


I like all colors but I do like pink. I live in a house full of boys/men so I have to get some girlie pink when I can. Likes: flowers, cute animals, fashion, dogs, inspirational stuff/ Bible verses, garden themes. microscopes and test tubes, the beach, cruises, butterflies, * Crazy Birds * Gorguss Girls, * Prima Dolls

theevidenceisme rated for C.I. ~ Coloring In An ATC on Mar 4, 2018
Comment: Thank you so much for the Christmas postcards! I collect them all year long so I have enough to send out at Christmas time. I enjoy coloring as well and haven't done it in a while. Doing an ATC sized one seemed like a good way to get back into it slowly. Sadly, my Hobby Lobby closed about a year ago, but I do still have a Michaels. Happy Swapping!

Comment: I love the way you decorated this pocket letter, Laurie! "Things to Do" is a great theme! I need to remember the "Choose Joy" one more! Thank you! (My husband got an instant pot from Santa (maybe it was me!) and has made several stews and soups - we love it too! He likes using gadgets and I hate to cook - win win for us both! No cheesecake, tho, maybe I'll mention it to him!)
Response: Glad you like the PL. Tell your hubby to try the cheesecake :)

Comment: Great postcard-I love that the nutting dolls are smaller now too! Loved the theme of yours with the map on one side and the girl on the other! Thanks for sharing and swapping! Happy Fall!
Response: So glad you like the postcard. I love the Prima dolls but they are a bit big. I actually stamped her and cut her out, put her the map page and then copied her and resized her so she would fit on the postcard.
