I am a nurse case manager who works in a busy family practice. I love my job and the challenges it brings. I am a mother to 5 (3 who still live at home) and grandmother to one super sweet little boy. I began crafting last year as a stress reliever and quickly got hooked. In my spare time I also foster rescue dogs from shelters and help them find furever homes. I currently have 2 dogs of my own: a 10 year old French bulldog named Tebow and a 10 year old Pittie mix named Agnes who also happens to be my first foster fail. For those that don't foster animals, a foster fail is an animal that you started out fostering and then decided that you want to adopt. A Message about Postmarks: I discovered that if my mailman picks up late in the afternoon as he usually does, the mail may not get postmarked until the next day (or Monday if it is a Friday). When I mark Sent it has been placed in my mailbox on that day but may not get postmarked until the next day
Papercrafting is my "go-to" craft. I have recently begun making handmade cards and love the endless options to make someone a unique card. My next area to try is creating mixed media wall art. I am always looking for new ways to express myself through art. Some of my favorite craft items: * embossing folders * dies (especially die and stamp sets) * distress ink * watercolor pens * napkins for decoupage
I love music! At any given moment I could be listening to classical, contemporary Christian, soft rock or hair bands! i Older tunes are my go to most of the time. Amazon music is my current listening venue because it is super easy to create your own playlist. Some of the artists always on my playlists: Air Supply Men at Work Imagine Dragons 3 Doors Down SIXX AM Def Leopard
If you haven't seen Only the Brave, go rent it now! It is not a movie I traditionally watch but my husband brought it home the other day and I absolutely loved it. I don't have all "all-time" favorite movie but I have some that I always head to if I can't find something new to watch like: 1. Avengers 1 and 2 2. Thor: Dark World and Thor: Ragnorak (I actually didn't care too much for the first one...go figure) 3. The Last of the Mohicans (unexpected I know) 4. Moulin Rouge (love the music) 5. Lord of the Rings trilogy 6. Rocky Horror Picture Show As you can see, my movie tastes are quite varied. One thing I won't watch are Horror Movies. I cannot stand the level of gore and intensity in those movies.
I am a sucker for good food whether I make it or buy it somewhere. I love trying new recipes. Some of my favorite foods: 1. Chocolate (love dark chocolate and chocolate covered almonds) 2. Salty snacks like chips, crackers etc 3. Butter pecan ice cream 4. Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies 5. Peppermint Hershey kisses 6. Pizza Hut thin crust pepperoni pizza 7. Fettucine alfredo I have recently started meal planning and am working up to prepping/planning a month's worth of meals at once. Great time saver.
