About Me

April 3rd 2020

Hello, my name is Jill. I live in California. I’m 46 years old. I’m a tea drinking workaholic, gummy bear addict and craft supply collector (hoarder) I have three wonderful and very sweet sons. Our birthdays are all back to back and just about a week apart from till the next. Jake turned 18 on May 11th. Ryan will be 23 the 21st of May. Next my birthday is the 27th And finally, Bret will be 29 on June 4th. His due date was May 10th. Technically he was supposed to be a May baby too. And no, the May birthday thing was not planned. Either was all of us having four letter names :)

I’m married my second time around to Jeff. We have been together for 8 years - married for 5 years. Jeff has two adult children I adore! I have two dogs. Kane & Apollo are German Shepherds. They are brothers from a separate litter. Kane is 4 and weighs 126 lbs. Apollo is 3 years old and weighs 96lbs. They’re incredibly smart and loyal dogs!

We have a 10 year old Cosmo goldfish named Potato. He was a tiny little brown colored goldfish my youngest son won at the fair many years ago. Potato is now beautiful orange and white and about 6-7 inches long. If you want to know how to properly care for your goldfish, just ask. I’ve had fish on and off since I was elementary school age, and have learned a lot over the years by trial and error. We have had many wonderful pets over the years. Lizards, bunnies, rats, hamsters, parakeets and a hedgehog.

Things I enjoy in my free time:

Shopping (retail therapy) Reading, baking, gardening, mixed media, acrylic painting, watercoloring, paper crafting and organizing.

Projects using scrapbook paper, mixed media supplies and a canvas = my happy place.

I own my home based business. It keeps me quite busy. I’m also a professional photographer. I used to own my own small based photography business until my health issues made it more challenging to keep a schedule. I’ve been working from home for about 8 years now.

I have a plaque in my bathroom that says β€œDon’t wish for it. Work for it.”

One of my favorite jobs was when I worked for several years for the well known pediatrician Dr Sears. Using his philosophy and my own 20+ years of experience, I wrote the daily nutritional tip for his FB page, along with answering questions that parents had regarding all areas of parenting from nutrition, exercise, sibling rivalry, discipline and baby care.

Favorite Crafts

Crafts I enjoy : Drawing Watercoloring & acrylic paints Photography (my last career) Altering anything- mixed media Junk journals (been collecting items and STILL have not made a complete book yet)

My likes; πŸ¦‹πŸ’•πŸŒˆπŸ¦‹πŸ’•πŸŒˆπŸ¦‹πŸ’•πŸŒˆπŸ¦‹πŸ’•πŸŒˆπŸ¦‹πŸ’• 🌈 I LOVE RAINBOWS 🌈 Whenever I see a rainbow I think of Gods promise. So anything with a rainbow is very much appreciated! Anything Christian ✝️ would love to know your favorite bible scripture and why it’s so valuable to you. Mine is Jeremiah 29:11. It’s what pulled me through some very hard times.

Items that I like: Teacups, tea pots, tea, lace trim, doilies, butterflies, nautical, anchors, koi fish, goldfish, flowers, Ivy, trees and gardens. Anything to do with a gardening. Shovels, watering cans, white picket fences, flowers, clay pots and snails.

I grow my own amaryllis and orchids, so anything with this is very much appreciated. I really do like all flowers, so whatever scraps with florals you have to share is very much appreciated.

Themes and styles: Eclectic Favorite is Nautical and Shabby chic Also like vintage, florals, cutesy.

Colors: Love all colors. Favorites are cobalt blue, darker metallic blue, yellow, black and white. Newly really loving purple - all shades and coupled with either yellow or sage green.

Absolutely love and swoon over metals and metallic. Copper is my favorite. My husband redid our kitchen backsplash in copper for me. Love it!!!

I’m working on my handmade journals. One will be an art journal and the other one for adding little bits of this and that of my favorite things.

πŸ’œ Items I can always use or would enjoy receiving

Glassine envelopes. Any size

Love gummy candy. Especially Haribo. Also any fruity chewy or hard candies. I do like chocolate of course, but not dark so much.

Miniatures Vintage - antique Fabric scraps, Lace, Crocheted Doilies or similar to those. Illustrated book pages. Especially ones in color. Paper clay Doilies Pretty, cute or vintage paper scraps Polymer clay Glassine envelopes Small paper bags or envelopes for swaps goodies. Fuzzy socks or slippers - medium or OS. Mechanical pencils (odd obsession) Cutesy or fancy pens Little purse sized notebooks Note/greeting cards. Blank or thank you

Gel pens that don’t smudge for left-handed peeps

Favorite brands: Punch Studio

Love the coffee dyed binder paper - that is just how I like it to turn out - just like mine doesn’t! Perfect die cuts too! Love it all. Thanks so much for paying attention to my profile.
