I am a pastor's wife with 2 sons in college, so I am enjoying my extra time in my craft room right now. I have taught 6th grade and kindergarten, and I ran a homeschool co-op for 10 years. My husband and I, along with our 2 sons, lived in Guinea, West Africa as missionaries. We lived very close to Timbuktu. I love sharing stories about living in the bush with no electricity or running water, so if you want to know what it's like to live in Africa, please feel free to ask me.
I like creating and crafting just about anything. I letterbox and carve my own stamps. I like to make cards and pocket letters. I have big binders full of ATCs and LTCs from swappers. Making friends and meeting new people is the best part of swapping.
I also like to dabble with my essential oils. I make diffuser bracelets and necklaces. I recently started making different balms and lotions with my EOs.
I love to read!! You will never catch me without a book! Lol!! I love reading my Bible and my favorite genre is Christian Historical fiction. A few of my favorite authors are Angela Hunt, Terri Blackstock, Francine Rivers, Tamera Alexander, Liz Curtis Higgs, and Deanne Gist. I am an early book reviewer for several publishing companies. If you ever need a suggestion for a great book in the above genre, just ask.
I have every John Grisham book and I love them all but "The Testament" is my favorite. Here are a few of my favorite secular books:
Follow the River
Little House Series
The Good Earth
The Constant Princess
I also greatly enjoy young adult books. A few of my favorites are: Call It Courage and Where the Lillies Bloom.
Survivor, Survivor, Survivor!! I'm a huge Survivor fan!! I also like The Amazing Race and Dancing with the Stars. My favorite sit com is Big Bang Theory.
I love to bing on Downton Abbey, Mr. Selfrige, and Poldark. These are my favorite British shows.
I enjoy paper crafts of every kind. Decorated envelopes are my passion!! There's nothing I like more than receiving an envelope with cuteness on it; it makes the happy mail even happier. I try to decorate all my envelopes I send out. ❤️
Here's a few things I'm involved in:
*Card making *Pocket Letters *Stuffed envelopes *Rubber stamping *Carving stamps *Altered books *Homemade tags *Flip books *Embellishments *ATCs and LTCs *Planner goodies esp. paper clips *Creative Bible journaling
