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!
Arabella rated for 9LP - Groceries! on Feb 24, 2018
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: Thank you for the Lovely mini PL, I adore it!
Response: Glad you like it.
