Hi y'all! I'm a 30-something, married mama. I have 2 boys (8 & 4), lots of cats, and 2 dogs. I have all sorts of hobbies and love trying new crafts, and I love sending and receiving happy mail. I spend a lot of time at thrift stores and yard sales, or trying to garden although I'm not very good at it. I love reading and listening to audible books. I started swapping postcards because my Hubby used to be a trucker and would bring home postcards from his travels. I sign my postcards, letters, and notes with a little heart with wings, rather than "love" or "sincerely" or "your friend" - I've been signing things like that since high school and even have a tattoo of a heart with wings on one wrist. I love anything with hearts with wings since they are special to me.
ATCs, inchies, scrapbook/mixed media type collages, ink stamps
tiny things for dollhouses
I sew by hand so I usually stick to small, easy projects but I do like sewing. I want to try making cloth hexies for an eye spy type quilt - small print fabric scraps are appreciated. :)
I love: thrift stores, old cookbooks and recipes (I do have a recipe card box and enjoy adding new recipe cards), red wine, cats of all types, doll houses and tiny things, ink stamps, glitter, flamingos, chickens, Mary Engelbreit designs, old houses, gardening (including seeds and bulbs) and garden gnomes, mermaids, pirates, lighthouses, and beaches, images of stars or the constellations (especially Orion) Miss Piggy, postcards (plain OR written on, stamped, mailed), Dolly Parton, castles, colorful things, Nag Champa incense, leopard or cheetah prints, anything with glitter.
I have several planners and love fun office supplies like unusual paperclips.
I appreciate Bible verses and such, and I'm a sort of liberal Christian (easiest way to explain!) so I also appreciate learning about other religions. I love images of Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Julian of Norwich, angels, and any Saints.
I like all kinds of tea, flavored coffee, and dark chocolate. Decaf or regular!
I'm working on losing weight and I've lost 20 pounds so far with 25 more to go. Anything motivational helps :)
