What I spend my time on these days:

  • sleeping in
  • taking care of my kitties
  • bullet journaling
  • making things
  • playing Fortnite with my nieces
  • dragging out the 100 day project
  • Animal Crossing
  • whimsy

If ever something I send doesn't get to you, please let me know so I have a chance to correct it. As much as we rely on the postal service, they too make mistakes and lose things. I get it.(where are my keys again?)

Stuff About Me

I just turned 41 in February.
For the last 17 years, I've been married to Dave. He's an engineer and he has a little Cessna he likes to fly around for fun.
I'm an enneagram 5 and an INFJ.

I'm totally a cat person. These days I spend my cat time with three "formerly feral" kitties, who have adopted us.

I'm on Instagram... @ tigerlilyknotwise

On November 17, 2017 I had to say goodbye to my sweet Pippin. I miss this little face every day.


Things I Don't Prefer

  • vanilla scent
  • crudeness, rudeness and nudeness
  • Only known allergy is cucumber (I know, right?)
