About Me

Why - after so many years of creating them - are profiles so hard?

If we were living in the Regency period of English history, I would be considered a spinster. It's just me in a studio apartment in Vermont, living a cozy life I love. I work at an Ivy League library (my literal dream job) where I supervise students, wander the stacks looking for gems and fill my notebooks with inspiration for all the YA novels I hope to write. Someday.

I come from a large family and spending time with them is tied with my love of all things papercrafting. My five-year-old niece is my favorite person in the world and making things for her to hang on her bedroom walls is my current favorite way to pass the time.

My foray into the world of papercrafting began in my mid twenties when I discovered scrapbook paper. I made terrible cards back then. I completed two 12x12 scrapbooks - one for my brother and sister each - of a cruise we took together and then decided making full scrapbooks wasn't for me. Then I discovered mini albums and there was no looking back. I love following Youtube tutorials for different types of mini albums. I love to alter things from the Dollar Tree. I'm still making cards but the perfectionist in me is easily discouraged.

My family is super supportive of the things I make however I have been wanting to find a pen pal or ten to send mail and other goodies to.

If you'd like to do a personal swap - (flipbook, pocket letter, etc) please get in touch as I would LOVE that.

Favorite Crafts

Aside from papercrafting, I recently stuck my toe into the very deep waters of art journaling and mixed media. It's terrifying for someone who can't let go of her mistakes.

I love to make tassels and charms for the mini albums I make, so I would say jewelry making is a hobby.

I taught myself to crochet a few winters ago. I'm addicted to buying yarn, however so far all I can make are coasters, hats and hearts.

I would love to learn to watercolor and hand letter.

Favorites

TV: I have zero patience for TV. I tend to rewatch the same three shows - Psych, Phineas and Ferb, Milo Murphy's Law - on repeat because it doesn't require attention and serves as a familiar companion while I write or craft.

The exception to the rule is my love of the Roswell reboot - Roswell, New Mexico - and 911 Lonestar. Give me a good LGBTQ romance and I'm hooked.

Other shows I have loved include Elementary (BEST Sherlock adaptation imo), Supernatural (I was a diehard for the first three seasons), Felicity, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries and Friends.

Books: I devour Regency Romance novels. My favorite authors are the standards: Julia Quinn, Mary Balogh, Lorraine Heath, Sarah Maclean and my all-time favorite, Lisa Kleypas. I also love LGBTQ YA.

Other books I've loved include the Raven Cycle, Harry Potter (of course), Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and mysteries by Jonathan Kellerman and Don Winslow.

The best two books I read in 2019 were the Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang and Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston.

Movies: I grew up watching MGM musicals. Hit the Deck, White Christmas, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Daddy Long Legs, Summer Stock, the Harvey Girls, Two Girls and a Sailor, On the Town. They are still some of my favorite movies.

I also love most Disney, especially Tangled and Moana, I enjoy a good ridiculous action movie such as the Losers and the A-Team and nothing will ever make me as happy as 90s/early 2000s romances like Practical Magic, Return to Me, Runaway Bride, Two Weeks Notice.

Music: I love country and singer songwriters. Kacey Musgraves, Katie Pruitt, Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett. My exception is my love of 5 Seconds of Summer. Also, I saw One Direction in concert 6 times.

Likes

Crafty things I'd love to receive: old magazine ads (especially from the 50s and 60s), Happy Planner Stickers, stamped images (especially fairies, unicorns and anything celestial), stars have a very emotional/sentimental meaning to me so anything with stars, Hello Kitty or Sanrio stickers, stationery of any kind, washi samples, any old packaging that's interesting (for junk journaling), handmade tags, postcards (especially vintage or vintage reproductions), anything French or Parisian, anything related to Tangled (my favorite Disney movie/Princess), old book pages, old stamps.
