About Me

34, NC, USA, Mom of 4 boys, degree in photography, love arts & crafts of all kinds.

Favorite Music

Some of my fav's are enya, cranberries, sarah mclachlan, jewel...etc....I like a large variety: modern country, techno, rock, alternative pop, classical, cont. christian. I was in band and chorus in high school and college. I played clarinet, bass clarinet, trumpet(briefly), sax(briefly) and piano. I'm slowly adding mp3s so that hopefully I can begin walking daily at some point when I quit procrastinating. One of my goals is to learn to play the guitar and chello.

Favorite Books

I don't read as much as I used to but my favorites authors are JK Rowling, Danielle Steele, Nora Roberts, LM Montgomery, Laura Ingalls(& "ghost" writers are ok), Madeleine L'Engle...

Favorite Movies

Harry Potter, Ever After, Disney, Pretty Woman, Little Women, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensability, Titanic...you get the picture

Favorite Crafts

Where to begin? I was a photo major so naturally photography of any kind and graphic design, paper arts(scrapbooking and stamping are big ones although I don't have much time with 4 little ones) In the past I've done embroidery, macrame, weaving, painting, jewelry& beads, mosaics. My most recent projects were a Gryffindor scarf (for my 6 yo which I learned to do on a knitting loom) and sewing his robes.

I don't really enjoy sewing or woodwork much they just are not my thing really.

I'd like to learn more about clay and jewelry making(seperately and/or together). Also working on learning more advanced loom knitting techniques.

Favorite Colors

I think I go through phases of colors right now I'm into the "hip" pink/turquoise/brown color combinations but I've also been known to combine hot pink and black or red and black.... The only color I don't like much is certain shades of green but in their place they are okay also.

Favorite Foods

Candy...yummm ...Chocolate.... I love anything Hotel Chocolat and See's California nugget(or gold something like that) reese's, skor and Ferrero Rocher are my normal indulgances. I don't really care for coffee other than Frappachino style. The only kind of tea I drink is sweetened iced.

Things I collect

antique old cameras, scrapbooking materials(paper, stamps, string/yarn, stickers, used letter stamps, etc), costume props (ex. fancy umbrellas, fans, etc), my kids momentos(I'm a pack rat for these)

Growing up I collected snow globes, unicorns, ceramic figures and shoes.

Harry Potter & I

  • I read the last book wahhh in apx 12 hours...loved it for the most part...
  • I LOVE all things Harry Potter...
  • According to the sorting hat I'm a HUFFLEPUFF!!! [Proud Hufflepuff here]...I don't have any house stuff at all yet.
  • According to the character match I'm Neville

  • I went to the book release with my 6y.o. he was Harry and won 2nd place in the costume contest we were 2nd in line for the book...very magical night.
  • I've seen all the movies(3 while in theater)and own all the DVDs
