About Me

I've been a paper crafter since I was a little girl. Pocket letters are what got me into swapping and from there I have learned about (and swapped) flip books and loaded envelopes and I love trying new things. I also scrapbook and make cards (including all my Christmas cards). I enjoy making and receiving handmade embellishments. I love vintage styles, coffee, chocolate, anything that sparkles, Christmas and prima dolls, trims, washi and bling to name a few things. I also love finding treasures (crap) at Flea Markets. I am learning about mixed media and made my first junk journal June 2018 and have made 6 since then. I love the process and crinkly paper!

Favorite Music

I'm a classic rock girl. Sometimes I feel like listening to classical or jazz. And I love Christmas music, but only from Thanksgiving through New Years, not before ;) . Not fond of country music.

Favorite Books

I love to read! Favorite books have been Clan of the Cave Bear series, Harry Potter, Twilight series, Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Dark Places, Sharp Objects), Water for Elephants, The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Started reading the Outlander series this past summer (2019, on book 3 :D)

Favorite Movies

Harry Potter, Beauty and the Beast, The Princess Bride, Parenthood, Forget Paris, When Harry Met Sally, Harold and Maude

Favorite Television

AHS, Dance Moms, Dancing with the Stars, The Goldbergs, Modern family, Last man on Earth, Orange is the New Black, Call the Midwife, Downton Abby (currently watching it for the 4th time)

Favorite Crafts

Junk Journals, Scrapbooking, Card Making, Smashbooks, Pocket Letters, Flip Books, Loaded Envelopes, handmade embellishments, Painting rocks (Kindness Rocks), ATC's, altered rolodex or Memory Dex cards. I like trying new things.

Not so much

Some things I don't care for: there isn't a lot, make-up (I don't wear much), demonic themed anything... long dislike lists, lol. I'm pretty easy to please. And if I receive something I don't love, I'll just pass it along to someone who does!
