About Me

California born, Idaho raised, Tennessee living!

My family of four moved to Tennessee over a year ago for a big life change. We're absolutely love it and don't miss the snow at all! My two kiddos are ten years apart but they're thick as theives!

We have two dogs and two cats which sadly had to be temporarily re-homed with family and friends until we had out own home to bring them to here.

I don't like flying a lot of personal information out on the internet for all to see (my days of being an over-sharer are over!). But I am married with a 12 yr old and a 2 yr old.

Favorite Crafts

Daily journaling and rock painting.

My daughter and I have been painting rocks and hiding them for about two years now. Our artistic abilities have made a lot of progress since starting.

I've kept a daily journal for over a year though I fell off the wagon over the summer of 2019 while all of fun journaling stuff was held up by the moving company 😬 Worst experience ever!

I use a lot of magazine clippings, washi tape, and stickers of all kinds I find out and about (business cards, menus, post cards)in my journal. I love the thrill of making a beautiful page with things that most would toss out! I enjoy using watercolor paints and pencils in my journal as well but I'm not a master artist.

I'm trying to find a way to make my hand lettering better. I have"loud" handwriting as a teacher once told me but I'm not saying that it is messy by any means. My favorite pens are fine-liner type but I'm experimenting with brush pens for the fancier writing.

Favorite Books

I typically find myself too busy to read though I am an avid book lover. Some of the ones that touched me the most are... Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded by Hannah Hart. Everything's Eventual by Stephen King. Looking for Alaska John Green. 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

I teach ELA (go figure, and ELA teacher with no drive to read for pleasure). The last two books I read we're student recommend - Wonder and 13 Reasons Why. Both are books that I highly recommend!

Mailing

I had a penpal from junior college that I would write back and forth with fairly regularly until just a few months ago. I love to write and always have a fair amount of stamps on hand to send letters! I have a lot of cards and paper to my husband's dismay. I just love the different things I can use to mail to others.

I don't have time to go in to the post office and hand it to people behind the counter - since I keep teacher hours I will often leave and return home without seeing the sun all day! So I drive through and drop them off in the blue box. So typically when I mark something as sent it probably gets picked up after 5pm that day and will be postmarked for the next day after it is sorted at the facility. I try always send within a day or two of the partners being given and have never sent late.

Interests for receiving from swaps:

-washi samples - I would love Christmas or fall themes, but will gladly accept all types

-magazine cut outs (large/small florals or interesting colors/patterns)

-stamped images

-stickers of anything

-tags

-scrapbooking paper scraps (no smaller than 1x1 inch)

-I enjoy botanical type things, but am not a vintage only person and even love cartoon types

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful journal! I'm trying to continue to journal. I got another book and said I will do this every day. I have actually done it about every third day. Not much to say when you're locked in the house all day. I enjoyed yours so much. You inspire me to get it done. Thanks! Have a wonderful day and stay safe! Hugs, Diane
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the journal! I enjoyed making it for you. Journaling is a great outlet for me, but it's been tough keeping up during everything like you said. I hope that you can find some ways to fill your pages and enjoy your time journaling. πŸ’— That safe.

Comment: Thanks for the nice note and post it's. I'm an ELA teacher, too! Well, up until this year. Now I'm the librarian! Our year finished on May 22, but we've been preparing for next year by building online units so we can do blended instruction. I have enjoyed the curbside check out at my local library, too! Have a great summer. I hope you're able to get the books you want for your summer PD.
Response: Thank you! At my old school the librarian was going to retire and I was thinking about taking that on, but then we moved states! Thank you, I've been about to get and read three or four of the books I wanted plus a few for fun. I hope your summer is going well. πŸ’—

Comment: I agree, it is always nice to see the routines of spring. Picking flowers always a favorite thing to do during this time of year. Happy to read your son did so. Love marigolds and snap dragons. Ours wont bloom for another month or so (too cold yet). Take care and keep smiling. Thank you for sharing.
Response: Thank you for rating! I'm glad that others enjoy the routine of springtime too. πŸ’— Stay safe
