About Me

I live in a small town in Wisconsin and have lived here most of my life. I have a chocolate lab mix named Sadie and also have had cats.

My two loves are art and travel. ✈ I enjoy going to art museums, looking at art online or wherever I can find it. I especially like it on my walls :) I'm not very artistically inclined so I have to just look at it!

I also love to read and recently got a Kindle. I like books so much I wasn't sure how I would like it but it is nice to always have something to read. I still have books around even if just to look at.

I seem to gravitate towards anything old whether it be pictures, linens, furniture, etc. Like to go to flea markets and antique shops.

I will NEVER flake so if you don't receive something from me, please contact me.

Favorite Books

My current favorite author is James Patterson as I love mysteries. I also have read a lot of John Grisham and Fern Michaels. I enjoy just about anything that will hold my attention.

Favorite Television

I am a reality show junkie and my favorites right now are Project Runway and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Also like Storage Wars and American Pickers since I like old and antique things.

Favorite Crafts

I am fairly new to the crafting world (other than scrapbooking) but I like making things out of books and magazines. I made Christmas trees out of books for the holidays this year. I have been scrapbooking for several years and have given many as gifts. I have also made handmade cards. Just starting to make ATC's and like it but not sure how artistic they are. I am intrigued by Zentangles but haven't tried one yet. I just discovered pocket letters and love them! If you want to trade one, just send me a message!

* pocket letters * postcards (see below)
* paper/envelopes
* note cards
* homemade envies

Things I don't like or need

Tea, make-up, jewelry, clothing, things for children as my son is grown (29 yrs old), scrapbook paper (I can't seem to get near it but what some jumps in my cart) I have tons!
