💖LIFE: I'm a 44 yr old single mama living in the city of Portland, Oregon. I grew up in the country, but now am a city girl simply because Portland is where I've landed.
I spend most of my hours enjoying life with my 3 year old girl, as we explore the world around us. When I have free time, I like to get my creative juices flowing by what has inspired me.
I enjoy receiving homemade items from artists & crafters. I am not artistic, but I do like to get my craft on.
✝️I'm a Christ follower who tries my best to do as He asks, love God & love others.
I am an extroverted HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) & an ENFJ-T. I'm overly sensitive & a worrier, but I am optimistic & appreciate the little things. I tend to give everyone the benefit of the doubt & forgive incredibly easily.
♻️I'm a bit of a "hippie" & big on recycling/up-cycling & reusing items when I can. Being a single mama means funds are tight, so being thrifty & refreshing second hand stuff is an adventure of its own as I find & create new treasures.
🐱I have an old calico cat (Talulla) who has been through many years with me & we are good for each other. She enjoys eating houseplants, shredding papers that were left out & playing with toys & my kiddo. I never expected that they would get along so splendidly.
💌 I have chronic pain & have dealt with it longer than not; so I'm totally used to it. However; sometimes it's difficult for me to get the big stuff done. This is when I like to bless others with HAPPY MAIL!
🌈I like bright, BOLD & FLUORESCENT COLORS & SPARKLY things.
I LOVE anything that is GLOW IN THE DARK!
🐾I adore animals, especially CATS🐱, Sloths🦥, Flamingos🦩, Pangolins, Orangutans🦧 & other animals considered "strange/weird".
❤️I love anything Jim Henson created; THE MUPPETS just make me happy, especially KERMIT THE FROG.
☕️ I enjoy a good cup of black tea. I like my tea with honey & creamer (eggnog if available). I do drink other teas, although fruity flavored tea I have never been a fan of.🫖
I grew up with HELLO KITTY, so I adore Sanrio stuff.
I also like STUDIO GHIBLI & KEWAII cuteness.
💟I have always enjoyed STICKERS. I like most anything that can be used to make paper crafting items.🔖
💕 I like FABRIC scraps, lace, ribbon, ricrack or anything that can be used to embelish clothes to make them more "girly".🎀 My kiddo has hand-me-down "boys" clothes that I like to "girly" them up.
🗺️I love TRAVELING as well as planning the trip prior to going. I like the touristy sight seeing spots & any place with natural beauty.
✈️I have yet to do much traveling outside of the United States, but I have so much more to see in the US. I have been to 46 states. Hawaii, Florida & The Carolinas are on my bucket list.
🤣I like JOKES, even elementary school jokes. Laughing is so important!
🤗TINY THINGS: rocks, charms, miniatures & anything small.
🧵🪡I love EMBELISHMENTS, anything that I can add to my girl's clothes to make them girlier. She has a lot of hand me downs that are "boy's" clothes & she is a complete "girly girl" & adores frilly, sparkly, pink stuff.
My girl is a mini me. She loves books, crafting, stickers, animals, cooking, drinking tea (herbal), playing board games & enjoys lots of time outdoors. She is super smart, silly & kind. Her laughter is the best & her smile & squishy cheeks make my day. She is a joy to be around.
🧵🪡SEWING! I'm new to sewing, but enjoy adding embelishments & re-fashioning hand-me-downs & thrift finds. I look forward to expanding my skills now that I have a craft area dedicated to sewing.
✂ PAPER CRAFTS of all sorts, especially cards as I enjoy sending them to spread cheer.
📿BEADING of all kinds, but earrings are my favorite. I like being able to create a pair of earrings that I can pass on to someone who will wear & enjoy them.
🎨KID'S CRAFTS, any type really. I'm not a huge fan of the messy stuff though. I like kid's crafts b/c they're a great way to upcycle items that might otherwise go to waste.
🧶KNITTING, which I have been doing for some time now. I enjoy yarn & the calmness that knitting brings to me... as long as the projects I work on are somewhat easy & small projects.

CRIME DRAMAS / MYSTERIES / THRILLERS
It can be True Crime or Fictional, I enjoy watching just about anything that is crime drama. British shows are my favorite as US shows tend to have too much drama. I basically like any British crime show on AcornTV.
I have to limit my time on Pinterest because it is the most perfect site for me & has so much that interests me. A site full of inspiration & a way to save and organize the things I discover... for FREE!
Pinterest is just too good to be true for me.
📔CHILDREN'S BOOKS 📖
Most books geared towards adults tend to bore me & I can't get through them. This might be due to my short attention span, or the wordiness of them.
I like picture books, beginner reader books & chapter books. I like young adult books that are coming of age stories or Dystopian Sci Fi. I guess I don't have a favorite genre, I just like to read books that are good & preferably a quick read.
I also like to read craft books & cookbooks to get inspired.
🏫The Library is one of my favorite places, I spend hours each week exploring what books they have that interest me.
❤️Fabric, even scraps. I'm new to sewing so I do a lot of small projects to improve my skills. I'm currently into embellishing hand-me-downs for my little girl so she can enjoy her new to us clothes. Lace, patches, buttons, fringe, etc. no matter the length is precious to me.
❤️Muppets / Sesame Street / Jim Henson stuff
❤️Children's book memorabilia
❤️Sanrio: Hello Kitty, Mimmy, Monkichi, Chococat, Little Twin Stars, Keroppi, Badtz-Maru & My Melody are my favs.
❤️Studio Ghibli: especially Kiki's Delivery Service
❤️Kawaii items, It makes me smile when I see those adorable little faces on random things like food!
❌Strong scents 🤢
I do LOVE a good Scratch 'N Sniff sticker though!
❌Coffee and Dark chocolate 🤮
❌Anything disrespectful or political 🙅🏻♀️
