About Me

I am a 28 year old mom to a soon to be 2 year old little boy. Although I get to stay home with him, my crafting time has seriously decreased.

I went to Chatham University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I majored in history and art history with a minor in history of religion. In other words I LOVE history. Although I'm an American and I love my country, I had too many American history classes and prefer foreign history. I'm also a recent convert to Catholicism and love the religion, especially the saints. My patron saint is Catherine of Alexandria with is also the patron saint of students.

I'm also into traveling. I've only been to Paris but would love to travel Europe. I would love to go to all the United Kingdom countries/former areas, such as Ireland/Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and especially England. My specialty is 1500's England and King Henry VIII so England holds a certain appeal for me. Paris also has my heart.

I took French in high school and a semester of it in college but I can't speak it for the life of me. So if any fluent French speaking penpals would want to help me with learning to at least write it that would be awesome. Gaelic is another language I would love to learn.

I adore art. My favorite is The Last Judgement by Michelangelo. My favorite artist is Bernini. I think he's amazing. Renaissance art is some of my favorite.

Favorite Books

I'm a bookaholic. My favorites are Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (although I love ALL Austen) and Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. Also love love love The Thorn Birds. I also like the Twilight Series, mainly Edward and the love story. I am really into the Fifty Shades of Gray series right now too. Classics are also some of my favorites. Although I can't stand Wuthering Heights and most of the Bronte sister books. They're all so morbid.

Favorite Movies

My absolute favorite movie is V for Vendetta. Also love any Disney movie, especially Beauty and the Beast and Tangled. I also enjoy other animated movies like the Madagascars and Anastasia. I also love romantic comedies and period movies or historicals.

Favorite Television

I don't watch a lot of tv but I do watch NCIS, SVU, or Spongebob. I also watch Gossip Girl but I wait for the seasons to come out. I have also started watching Mysteries at the Museum.

Crafts/ATCs

Right now I've started making Pocket Letters. Although I haven't quite got it down to where I'm in love with my creations. Definitely trying though.

I love to scrapbook. I've made about four different ones. My mom is a member of this site and I love her ATCs so she got me in this. And with all my scrapbooking supplies I'm excited to start making some ATCs.

I really love making ATCs and try to make them as creative as possible. But I am not an artist. So if you receive one from me that you do not think fit the description or some other reason please let me know. If you send the original back to me I will gladly make another one for you. I would appreciate if you gave me some specifics of what you were looking for. I do not flake and I send on time so please let me know if you do not receive mine and I will fix it.

I will always give a 5 as long as I get it. If you're going to be late just email me. The heart is for the extra special ones.

I really like notpads. Especially pretty pictured ones like ones with foreign country pictures. Also pretty pages. I've started making my own envelopes so those come in handy.

Favorite Music

TAYLOR SWIFT!! Obviously I really like T. Swift. I really like most music. Though I am not a fan of Rap music. I enjoy everything from foreign music and musicals to country and top 40.

Comment: 3+ years and finally getting a rating to you! I do feel bad and I am embarrassed about it also. I have been on an emotional roller coaster and I am hoping that it has finally came to an end. Life is not always fair. But we will survive! A while back, I promised myself to make right all the people and ATC's I have neglected to complete. It has been bugging me, as this has never been how I usually handle things. A few days late possibly, but always completed. I am so sorry about this and I do hope that this long awaited rating, will bring your paperwork to a 100% close at for anything I still owe you. If there is something else that you are missing from me, please let me know asap. Again ... Sorry!!!
