About Me

California born, Idaho raised, Tennessee living!

My name is Ashley and my family of four moved to Tennessee over a year ago for a big life change. We're absolutely love it and don't miss the snow at all! My two kiddos are ten years apart but they're thick as theives!

We have two dogs and two cats which sadly had to be temporarily re-homed with family and friends until we had out own home to bring them to here. Our fur babies have been reunited with us and they've been adjusting wonderfully. We added a puppy to our home as well and she keeps our old dogs lively!

I don't like flying a lot of personal information out on the internet for all to see (my days of being an over-sharer are over!). But I am married with a 14 yr old and a 3 yr old.

Favorite Crafts

Daily journaling and rock painting.

My daughter and I have been painting rocks and hiding them for about two years now. Our artistic abilities have made a lot of progress since starting. Unfortunately the rock painting community isn't as active here in Tennessee as it was in Idaho so we hide many more than we find!

I've kept a daily journal for over two years though I fell off the wagon over the summer of 2019 while all of fun journaling stuff was held up by the moving company 😬 Worst experience ever!

I use a lot of magazine clippings, washi tape, and stickers of all kinds. I also like to add things that I find out and about (business cards, menus, post cards) in my journal. I love the thrill of making a beautiful page with things that most would toss out! I enjoy using watercolor paints and pencils in my journal as well but I'm not a master artist.

I'm trying to find a way to make my hand lettering better. I have"loud" handwriting as a teacher once told me but I'm not saying that it is messy by any means. My favorite pens are fine-liner type but I'm experimenting with brush pens for the fancier writing.

Favorite Books

I typically find myself too busy to read though I am an avid book lover. Some of the ones that touched me the most are... Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded by Hannah Hart. Everything's Eventual by Stephen King. Looking for Alaska John Green. 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

I teach ELA (go figure, and ELA teacher with no drive to read for pleasure). I have been listening to audiobooks during my commute (35ish minutes each way) and have listened to about 25 so far since January!

Mailing

I had a penpal from junior college that I would write back and forth with fairly regularly until just a few months ago. I love to write and always have a fair amount of stamps on hand to send letters! I have a lot of cards and paper to my husband's dismay. I just love the different things I can use to mail to others.

I don't have time to go in to the post office and hand it to people behind the counter - since I keep teacher hours I will often leave and return home without seeing the sun all day! So I drive through and drop them off in the blue box. So typically when I mark something as sent it probably gets picked up after 5pm that day and will be postmarked for the next day after it is sorted at the facility. I try always send within a day or two of the partners being given and have never sent late.

Interests for receiving from swaps:

-washi samples - I would love Christmas or fall themes, but will gladly accept all types

-magazine cut outs (large/small florals or interesting colors/patterns)

-stamped images

-stickers of anything

-tags

-scrapbooking paper scraps (no smaller than 1x1 inch)

-I enjoy botanical type things, but am not a vintage only person and even love cartoon types

Comment: Thank you for the cute postcard. I'm working in the garden. We don't have flower beds per se; my garden has masses of native plants and lilies of the valley. They are blooming now and it's wonderful to pull weeds!

Comment: Thank you, for the lovely letter! I enjoyed learning more about you! Plus, how you decorated the envelope! I do plan to write you back; it's a busy & sad time for me right now, so please be patient. It's remarkable, that your daughter & I share a birthday! Ah, to be 14 again! That can be an indecisive age, for sure. I do hope she has a wonderful birthday & gets to spend it however she wishes, in a truly (fully informed consent) healthy, protected way! May you both Thrive Well!!!!!!!!!!!! ~ Z
