About Me

I am a caretaker for six special needs ladies. I have worked with them for 20+ years. I have a lot of interests such as reading, writing, drawing, junk journals, collecting postage stamps, penpaling ( I have 30 active penpals), postcrossing, auctions, estate sales, thrift stores and flea markets. I also love to garden and my favorite things to grow are dry soup beans and sunflowers. I also love to walk and hike. I live in the country with my husband, son and retired racing greyhound. I love to learn new things. My favorite color is blue (any shade) and my favorite season is spring.

Favorite Music

Anything 80s and some classical as well. The violin is my favorite instrument.

Favorite Books

I love a good memoir. One of my favorites is Thomas Jefferson’s Garden Book. It is fascinating and contains tons of correspondence between him and his family and friends here and overseas. I also love some of the classic childrens books such as Black Beauty, Charlotte’s Web, The Cricket in Time’s Square and ALL of the Calvin & Hobbes books.

Favorite Movies

My favorite movie is The Shawshank Redemption. I am not much for fluffy love stories, I also love the crazy lifetime movies made from true stories of crime etc,

Favorite Crafts

Watercolors, pen and ink, junk journals, making small pottery pieces, I love the feel of the clay.

About Me

My dream trip is Australia! One day I will get there. And recently I acquired a 72 drawer card catalog! I named her Alice for my Aunt Alice who loved books and reading as much as me. She is a dark walnut and is six drawers wide and twelve drawers high with three pull out tables in the middle. She now lives in my craft room.

About Me

Some more things I love : Thunderstorms, birdsong, lightning bugs, fireworks, walking barefoot, Lake Erie, beach glass, picking cherries in North East Pa, visiting wineries, libraries, farmers markets, county fairs, chocolate cheesecake from Wegmans, the scent of lilacs, leaving the windows open at night in the summer, bonfires, the sounds of crickets and owls at night, stargazing, picking fresh green beans for dinner, box turtles, sorting thru my stamp and sticker collection.

About Me

Some of my favorite arts n crafts items are: used postage stamps, stickers, rubber or silicon stamps, small watercolor blocks, small trinkets like keys, shells, marbles, pretty stones, beads, ribbon, postcards new or old and used, old photographs, pages from books, inks of any kind, anything Tim holtz or similar, note cards, pretty papers, glue sticks, small fabric swatches, etc.

The WASP song you recommended... I actually know and LOVE that one! I just didn't know what it was called until now. Thank you for recommending it! ❤️
