About Me

I am single with no kids or pets. By day I am an overworked IT admin. By night I'm a nature girl. I would rather be outdoors than anywhere else. I love collage and am happiest with a magazine, a glue stick and a pair of scissors in my hands. OK to send handmade postcards. I love seeing other people's creativity.

Likes.

I like art, photography, and coffee. I practice yoga 3-4 days per week and I am still hoping to find my zen. I enjoy being outdoors walking or hiking. I have a fascination with clouds and love photographing sunsets. I enjoy art museums and sculpture gardens. My reading tastes lean towards memoirs/autobiographies/biographies, mysteries and young adult - especially young adult fantasy. I love audiobooks and podcasts. I believe in ghosts and the other side. I love podcasts about spooky/haunted places but get scared if I listen to too many. I love to travel and go on adventures and see new places and meet new people. I like to explore and take many day trips. I enjoy talking to strangers. I love movies especially offbeat, independent ones.

Favorite Crafts

I love collage. Watercolor is a another favorite. I also enjoy Zentangle, tangling, zen-doodling and slow drawing (repetitive patterns). I also love kid's crafts. They are fun without the seriousness of adult crafts. I enjoy making mixed media postcards for swaps.

Favorite Movies

Oh so many movies. I LOVE movies but my all-time favorite is Jaws. I have too many favorites to list but here are a few: All of the Toy Story movies, the original Star Wars, Shawshank Redemption, Nurse Betty (because Morgan Freeman is HOT!), To Kill a Mockingbird, Slingblade, Trip to Bountiful, The Green Mile and E.T.

Favorite Books

I am a lifelong reader. I love to read and I love listening to audio books. I don't have favorite books so much as favorite authors or genres. Some of the authors I like are Robert B. Parker (RIP) and Ace Atkins who took up the Spenser series after Parker died. I have read all of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone series except for the last one. I love the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich because they make me laugh out loud. I LOVED the audio version of Duma Key by Stephen King. Fell in love with the character of Jerome Wireman. My favorite genre is young adult novels - especially fantasy. I love the Thomas Odd series by Dean Koontz. My favorite author of all time is Rick Bragg. I could read All Over But the Shoutin' an Ava's Man over and over again and I could listen to Rick Bragg read the phone book.

Comment: So sorry for the late rating! Love your postcard, and totally relate to your rant. I've seen profiles that literally say "don't send me any one of these million things or I will go into some kind of PTSD attack, I only like the color purple and butterflies" Great. So much for artistic freedom! Reminds me of when a coworker and I were talking about the phrase "that's the bomb" in MY office - someone from another department heard the word "bomb" and reported the "incident", saying that he had been deployed and that word triggered PTSD - you know what? Sorry for your suffering, dude, but get therapy. Your issues aren't everyone's problem. You only like purple butterflies? Shop amazon. Don't demand that everyone you come across on this site cater to you - end rant :)
