I am a registered nurse and freelance writer. I am also a blogger where I write about holistic health. I work as a nurse informaticist designing software. I work with computers 8 hours a day. At night, I enjoy making collages, taking pictures,smashing, project life, and writing. I also have taken up crochet and knitting as a hobby. My newest hobby is sewing and I took an 8 week sewing class. So far, I have made a drawstring bag, zippered pouch and a skirt. I am having fun just learning about the craft. I would like to incorporate crafts and creativity in my life. I love making paper crafts even though I am not artistically inclined, but I hope to get better one day. I love stickers especially Suzy's zoo or anything whimsical, rubber stamps, stationary, journals, and postcards. I enjoy art and visit the many museums NYC and DC has to offer. My favorite artist is Claude Monet and Rodin but I also enjoy Van Gogh and Georgia O'Keeefe.
I love to read but sometimes I don't have the luxury of reading at home. I read mostly on the subway, airplanes, trains, or on vacation. I like reading non-fiction and have a large collection of books in my home. My favorite authors are Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and Marianne Williamson. I also enjoy reading my favorite children's book classics like Winnie the Pooh, Aesop's fables, Pippi Longstocking, Encyclopedia Brown, and all of Judy Blume's books.
Here are my favorites: Favorite colors: dark blue, red, hot pink, and green
Favorite Reality TV Shows: Dancing with the Stars and The Bachelor/Bachelorette, The Voice
Favorite Activities: Yoga, photography, blogging, traveling, smashing and project life
Favorite Movies: The Notebook, The Social Network, The Fault in our Stars
I collect postcards from around the world and currently smashing those in a smashbook. I also belong to postcrossing but have not received a postcard for a very long time.
I just joined a Fountain pen group on Facebook and am on the search for a fountain pen for beginners.
I spend most of my time on the computer at work. I like to write and recently joined 365/30 List on Facebook. I like to spend time with myself and reflect and journal what I am feeling on that particular day. I have been collecting quotes since high school and have several volumes of my most favorite quotes.
I am also learning how to take better pictures and edit them online. I realize I am better with my fingers than hands on the computer and need to get off the computer and start crafting in another way before I get carpal tunnels.
I learned how to crochet and knit a few years ago. I've made zines, cards, and postcards. I dabble in art journaling and watercolors. I tried to scrapbook in the past but realized I am not very good at it. So now I am addicted to smashing and project life.
My creative outlets lately have been smashing. I am smashing my vacations and have recently taken up project life. I am very picky about planners and have not seen one that I liked in the stores. I currently have an A5 size and a personal Italian planner.
Here are some of the things that are on my wish list: I am making my own planner so anything to embellish it like charms, new flyleaf/dashboard, magnetic clips? never seen them! Twine Washi tape Stickers Alphabet stickers Journal cards Embellishments Le Pens Staedler pens
I love different colored pens! I think blue and black ink is too boring. I have a ton of reds.
What I like: Cute journal cards Japanese tape I love pens and especially Sharpie pens Journals Cute notebooks Kawaii I love stickers and especially like Whimisical stickers like Suzy's zoo Anything Mary Englebreit Stationary Cute notecards French Vanilla Lipton tea Coffee Books - see above for fave books
What I don't like: Please don't send me any candy or food. I am watching my sugar intake and what I eat. Thank you for understanding.
Even though I like tea, I prefer the tea that I can't buy in The US so please do not send me any Lipton unless it's French Vanilla.
