Hello.... greeting from the beautiful Pacific North West! Born in Boston though - Boston Proud. I’m the daughter of an Army Pilot so I traveled when I was young. I've been "crafty" all my life. My interests are varied. I was a stay at home mom until all my children were in grade school. In order to have the same schedule as my children I became a school bus driver, and 20 years later I'm still sitting in the drivers seat - Oh boy the stories I could tell! No really....... kids say the darnedest things (if their parents only knew - sometimes I have to try not to bust out laughing when I see them, these little ones are so innocent - it's delightful).
I used to teach Kindergarten before staying home with my fabulous children which was a perfect fit for me because Kindergarten is education disguised in one big fat craft session. I have 2 living Children, Ashley-30 who will make me a Grandmother this June and Chelsea-28 who loves to travel and my son Joshua passed away Sept 11, 2010 at 25, we are blessed with a lifetime of laughter and love from the short time we had with him. That loss does not define me, in fact it has made me a better person and I know he would be proud of the person I am.
Besides family and friends and my crafts I love to walk, swim, pen pal and bullet journaling. I have a great sense of humor and love random acts of kindness and putting a smiles on faces....... and ice cream cones, dipped in chocolate of course - I love that crunchy stuff!!!
Hmmmm - there just isn't enough time or ones attention span to really do my crafting justice...!! So let me just say ........ I ....L O V E ..... paper and all paper crafts but have have been seen doing - Knitting, Crochet and coloring - thank goodness for the Adult Coloring popularity. But mostly I'm hooked on paper crafts. I love making my own envelopes, and a love of all things ATC's and JAMS (so anything in 3’s are awesome). Just found out about Inchies and Twinchies, I mean REALLY Inchies and Twinchies.......
I do want to say AGAIN if for some reason you don't receive something from me please let me know I would love to do it again. Please contact me - it's sad not getting a little something in the mail when your expecting it, right?!
I also collect playing cards, there are some beautiful, wacky and funny ones out there and some of the older ones - fabulous.... crazy, but there you have it.
I would love J of ❤️‘s if you have one (it's kinda a sentimental reason - in memory of my son Joshua he was my heart.... thus J❤️ - he was also a bit of a jokester too so Jokers are pretty awesome also) crazy I know this... but it is a delightful collection... lol
YUP ...I love to read and belong to a book club. We call ourselves....📚Between The Covers📚 ..... What fun it is and it broadens my reading (I won't lie though some of the selections make me wonder... just who is this person). I like easy reading but don't object trying something new. Some books on my shelf.... Girl on the Train Winter Garden A Man Called Ove
again very eclectic. I love bookstores - older ones more so and libraries and the feel of a good book in my hands - seriously I like turning pages - but I confess I do have electronic ones too - purely for when I have field trips on the bus......
Love movies too..... some of my favorites
Pride and Prejudice The Help Nims Island Eight Below Marvel movies - Iron Man, Captain America, Thor Forrest Gump The Princess Bride I like based on true life uplifting movies, Not good with scary, scary movies. No Saw or Geepers Creaper ............Yikes!!!!
I like reality shows like America’s Got Talent The Voice The Great American Race Survivor also Dateline Free Solo Leah Reminisce: Scientology and Aftermath Blue Bloods Veep New Amsterdam The Good Doctor Shark Tank
About PC's. My favorites are the artistic kind, black& white, black & white with color accents, unusual and unique - send me something you'd like yourself and then tell me a little bit about you.. your profession, dreams, passions, what you love about your culture and I love quotes. I just love receiving them so just have fun picking it. I also send postcards through Postcrossing a wonderful and exciting community of postcard lovers around the world - check it out!!
I LOVE Coca-Cola and coke art American Flags (vintage & country best) POstcards Stationary and notecards Daisy and Sunflowers Watermelon Owls ladybugs elephants giraffes Ribbon and lace, Journals - bullet and junk journals calligraphy - Fountain pens ATC's Vintage and Retro photography paper craft embellishments, playing cards (see above lol) zentangle Anything to embellish my JAMS in 3’s beautiful paper fashion, bookmarks beautiful stickers (might I add, that since I am a bus driver perhaps no kids or teacher types stickers would be nice - I have a pretty good selection)
truly I just plain love seeing the little treasure people send me hidden in all shapes and sizes of envelopes that await me in the mailbox..... that does not mean little extras - it means YOUR work!
Warmer earth tone greens purples like eggplant and deap lilac yellows like mustard Red, white and blue oranges like pumpkin and corals and usually do a lot of black accents
Well that about does it for now... thank you for forging through my profile, I'm bit of a talker and that translate to talking with my hands as well as in my writing too!!!! I love swap-botting and I feel like our swaps are like little acts of kindness toward each other and the connection one feels from them is... well... sort of magical...
