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: 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 don't make it to the theatre very often, but I do enjoy movies and watch them once they reach cable or Netflix. Some of my all-time favorites are: The Wizard of Oz; Mulon Rouge; It's Kind of a Funny Story; A Beautiful Mind; American Beauty; Across the Universe; Bridesmaids; Death at a Funeral. I am not fond of Fantasy, Anime, Horror, or Action/Adventure.
