About Me

Hello! I'm Shannon, a 49 year old who is very young at heart! I've been married to my best friend for 24 years. We have a 22 y/o daughter and 19 y/o son. And three cats.

I started my career as a high school English teacher. After taking several years off to be home with my kiddos, I decided to go back to school for my Master's in social work ---- at age 41!! I worked in hospice for two years. It began to break my heart. I decided to work in child welfare. I admit this also broke my heart! Now I work for the Agency on Aging in my town and it seems to be a better fit as I can help others but not go through such sadness. I will always continue to be involved with hospice and I am an active volunteer.

Favorite Crafts

Favorite Crafts: I have always been a creative person and have dabbled in most all types of arts & crafts. I enjoy paper crafts of all types, crochet, ATC, deco /friendship books, Smash*book / junk journals; up-cycling and DIY crafts. I love perusing Pinterest and finding new DIY projects. Pinterest is becoming quite a habit for me. I wish I spent as much time working on Pinterest ideas and recipes as I do pinning them :). UPDATE - I've just discovered Pocket Letters and absolutely LOVE them! What an incredibly creative and fun idea! If you don't know what a Pocket Letter is, check out this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfjtpv4-Ads

I am not fond of Fantasy, Anime, Horror, or Action/Adventure.

Hey :) your pocket letter is on its way although it may take a while longer than normal, due to the easter events. Mail me if something is wrong :)

Hi Shannon, I'm very glad to meet you! Thank you so much for being involved with Hospice. I have lost both parents, but my father passed a year ago in January. He had a rare genetic disorder and his final days on Earth he was on Hospice. So God Bless You for that!! Hmm seeing your favorite crafts make me want to Google "SmashBook" and "Junk Journals" you have me curious about both of those things. We have a lot in common as well, I love owls!! I work with individuals with special needs and this summer they were doing work at a Bird Sanctuary where there are a number of owls, so that was so cool. Mmm love tea too! I could drink it all day every day!! Are you into penpalling at all? You seem like we'd be a really good fit. I'm just getting into penpalling as well as this site, so that would be really cool. Just throwing that out there. I hope you have a very blessed day!!

I'm leaving you with a picture of Monte, who was at the Bird Sanctuary.
