About Me

I'm a 30-something mom of two - a boy and a girl. I've been married for 17 years, and we've lived in the same small town for nearly that long! We actually live in a church which my husband and I converted to a home right after we got married.

Red is my absolute favorite color. I collect pincushions, vintage sewing gear and pink & red pyrex. I also love anything vintage and quirky. (I'm the crazy woman at the auction who will buy an item that no one else wants for a dollar!) Toys from the 80s make me happy, especially Hello Kitty, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony & Rainbow Brite!

I collect American Girl dolls and love to find doll sized things to display with my girls. I am currently building and decorating a 5 room doll house. I enjoy sewing and creating things to use with my displays.

My son is 12 years old and very into all things dinosaur, reptile and shark. He also fancies himself a hunter and fisherman.

My daughter is almost 6 years old and a total girlie girl. She loves pink & purple, princesses and dancing.

We have three cats - Cheeto Burrito, Sophie and Savanna. I'm pretty much a sucker for a stray, but am currently at my husband's limit for furry babies!

Favorite Crafts

I have been scrapbooking since 1995 and absolutely love it! I don't get a lot of time to work on my books these days, but relish anytime I get to put towards it.

I also enjoy crocheting and sewing. Anything to keep my hands busy.

Favorite Books

I read constantly and will read almost anything except horror, non-fiction and biography. (Unless those are about a subject that really interests me.) Historical fiction is probably my favorite, but I can't turn down a good chick lit read, either!

Comment: Your handmade book corset is so gorgeous! I love the colors and can't wait to use it, thank you. :) Donna Tartt's The Secret History is one of my favorite books, too! I need to dig out my copy and reread it. Your other recommendations look great as well-- I'd been wondering if Colleen McCullough's Rome series was worth a read, and it sounds like something I'd like. Thank you again for such a wonderful swap. :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Have a great holiday season!!

Hi! I just joined that Amigurumi Christmas swap you are in and I see from your profile that you are a felter. I want to learn it. Where is a good place to get felting needles, etc. for that craft? Thanks!
