About Me

Hi there! I'm an American homeschooling mom of two little ones. We recently moved back to the USA after living in England and Germany for a few years. I love making and crafting, genealogy, antique shops, going to the beach, and jigsaw puzzles. Check out my Pinterest boards (link above) for the easiest way to see what inspires me.

Favorite Crafts

I mostly love making collages from painted paper, creating minizines, and painting with watercolors. Also stamp carving, book binding, embroidery, and painted rocks. But really I love to experiment with any medium.

Favorite Music

Avett Brothers, Barenaked Ladies, Counting Crows, Dispatch, Guster, Jack Johnson, and Regina Spektor

Favorite Books

All the Light We Cannot See (Anthony Doerr), We the Living (Ayn Rand), Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms (Katherine Rundell), Agatha Christie mysteries, The Nightingale (Kristin Hannah), The Zone of Interest (Martin Amis), Bringing Up BΓ©bΓ© (Pamela Druckerman), Bloomibility (Sharon Creech), Harry Potter series, David Sedaris, Bringing Nettie Back (Nancy Hope Wilson), Nancy Drew, and beautiful children's picture books

Favorite Things

dollhouses and all miniature things, free little art galleries, minizines, french braids, children's picture books, coffee with milk, slightly burnt M&M cookies, tiny floral patterns, glass jars and bottles, handwritten letters, bike rides at sunset, vanilla ice cream sprinkled with honey & cinnamon & basil (try it!), the moon, pancakes with peanut butter & maple syrup, documenting everyday life in my journal, rain boots, rubber stamps, tea with scones, ukuleles, the beach, wooden toys, the zoo, pecan pie, lilacs, miniature ceramic houses, gumball machines, ships in bottles, cinnamon rolls, the farm, homemade rhubarb soda, quilts, cuckoo clocks, baskets and wooden boxes, colored pencils, vinyl records, found objects

Comment: As always your zines are done so well and so fun to explore. I am so impressed you created one for the words from the first round. Thanks for sending me copies of each. I appreciate it! And I always seem to be able to relate to something you write. In this particular zine I could 100% relate about you and your brothers loving the food from the cafeteria. ME and my siblings felt the same way totally! We still talk about the yummy food after all these years.
Response: Thank you!! I regretted not signing up for your first round, so figured I'd make one anyway :) Looking forward to Round 3. And I'm glad we both had delicious food at our schools growing up.

Comment: Thanks, Stacie! I enjoyed reading this. It's pretty and I think a great way to approach the idea. Re board games--have you tried Azul? I really love that one. It's easy to learn but hard to be good at.
Response: Thanks! And I haven't tried Azul. Thank you for the suggestion!!

Comment: Thank you for resending :-) I am also Team coffee. I agree, Taro is so good. Since my stomach can not deal with lactose well I did not have one in ages. Bot now I want one. We have Fuze tea here in Germany for a while now and I really like it. Especially the Mango chamomile tea
Response: I should have tried Fuze tea when I lived in Germany! Mango chamomile sounds nice :)

Comment: Very interesting to hear about your travels. Your Sistine Chapel story was, to me, heartbreaking. If they just had to kick you out they should have let you back in once he stopped making noise. I have a daughter and I could just put myself in your shoes for that moment. I love Colonial Williamsburg too!

I just got your Encyclopedia of My Life zine. You are so talented and I loved the words you chose. I wish we could connect in real life. You seem so interesting!

Oh my gosh I just received your envelope full of zines. Oh wow!!! It was so amazing! There were so many things that you did with the zines that are new to me and I haven't seen it done before. They were so beautiful and colorful. Thanks a bunch! And thankyou so much for supporting me by joining these swaps.
