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 Bébé (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: All were interesting zines. That is neat that you sent zines to your husband. I would love to hear more about the German area you lived in. It sounds so interesting. Have you been to Hawaii?
Response: We lived in Waldenbuch, Baden-Württemberg. Check out photos of the town - just gorgeous! And the Ritter Sport chocolate factory was there (best hot cocoa at the cafe, a huge store with so many flavors, and the town smelled like chocolate on warm days!!). And yes - I've been to Hawaii with my husband to visit his family :)

Comment: I seriously love your clean fresh zine style. They inspire me and just make me so motivated to host more and more. Thank you so much for sending me the extra zine. I am disappointed when we aren't matched up.
Response: Aw, thank you!! And I love your style of zines that you host. Almost like little scavenger hunts of things to include. Makes it a fun challenge!

Comment: First off, this has nothing to do with the stamps but I really love your neat handwriting ! The zine is super interesting, it's so fun to see what you chose to illustrate on each page and read through your travels. The tiny stamps on your note are so cute ! I can't help but love the coffee cup, since I'm a coffee-addict. I get why you're hooked ! I am too. :)
Response: Aw, thanks so much! :)

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.
