About Me


Hi! I love to journal, and keep several different types for different purposes. I love my hobonichi, my midori travelers' notebook, and my bullet journal the best. I'm not very artistic, but I find sketching and watercolor very relaxing. I love to send snail mail, I'm still new at mail art, but learning as I go.

I have 3 young children who keep me very busy. We also have two dogs, a Border Collie mix and a poodle. We also have a guinea pig named Flash.I work at a local nonprofit.

Along with Journaling, I love to read, I am a big sci fi nerd, and I collect fountain pens. My family loves to camp, hike and canoe. (And of course cook, as my screen name suggests!)

I've started dabbling in watercolors. I'm by no means any good, but I love the process of painting. Art Journaling, and coloring books also bring me calm. I think of art as a moving meditation of sorts.

Favorite Books

I love reading everything. Jane Austen would be my favorite, and anything in that genre. I also love mystery, sci fi/fantasy, thrillers, fiction and non fiction. I've been reading a lot of Neil Gaiman lately.

Favorite Television

I have eclectic taste in TV. There's the usual sit coms and dramas. But I also like quirky shows, anything British (Endeavor!) and vintage mysteries (Poirot). I love Doctor Who, Sherlock AND Elementary, You're The Worst, and any Star Trek. I love cooking shows, especially Chopped and Halloween Wars. Lately, I have been enjoying The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The Umbrella Academy!

During quarantine, I've rewatched all of 'Grimm'.

Favorite Themes/Things

-Fountain pens

-Purple, Green, Grey

-Nature, botanical, mountains

-Gardening, vegetables, Herbs, Artichokes

-Goats, Dogs, Sloths, hedgehogs, bears

-Anything Tim Burton or Alice in Wonderland

-Hello Kitty

-Stamps

-Flow magazine

-Yoga, meditation, simplicity

-Cabins, camping, backpacking

-Cooking, canning

-watercolor painting

-Vintage

-Bicycles

-I really have eclectic tastes, and I love variety!

Tea of Choice

Tea seems to be a big deal around here. I have no problem with that. I drink all kinds, but prefer real tea over herbal or infusions. My standard is Earl Grey, but I am also one of those weird people who likes Lapsang Souchang even though my husband calls it creosote tea. I love flowering teas. And my favorite green tea is gunpowder green tea. I also like different mint teas and chai. But I really love trying different kinds and I love the different tea bag art.

Please don't send...

I really do love almost everything, but as I have actually received a few of these things (and some are more problematic than others) I thought I should mention them.

Please don't send me:

-negative images on postcards or anywhere else. -political or religious items -Christmas themed items

I am extremely sensitive to cigarette smoke, so please don't send me items that have been exposed to cigarette smoke.

Coffee

I'm a coffee addict. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right? I drink tea too, but coffee is a must have for mornings. And I love Starbucks (I know, I know) and Starbucks related paraphernalia. I love to collect cool Starbucks gift cards and other ephemera...

Craft Stuff I like

I'm not picky and really love seeing all the different things swappers share! But if we're doing a journal/craft swap, here are a few ideas of things I especially love: -Different types of paper, book, ledger, tea stained, etc.

-Paper twine and pretty string or yarn

-regular Traveler's notebook size inserts

-stationery, note paper, sticky notes, little envelopes, letter sets

-stickers of all kinds (please no reward stickers)

-washi (thin, big, regular, I love it all!)

-stamps or stamped images

-ephemera of all kinds, especially decorated paper (dyed or painted or whatever)

-anything handmade by you that you want to share

Swapping

I always complete and mail my swaps. If something happens that prevents me getting it out to you on time, I will let you know. If something isn't right with a swap you get from me, please let me know. I will resend- I really want my swaps to be enjoyed.

Comment: Thanks for the great notecard! You decorated the envelope so nicely! I've lived in Ohio all my life and have never been to Hocking Hills. It's on my to-do list. I don't know why I have never taken the time to go down there!

Comment: I really enjoyed reading your journal! It's so pretty! I wish I were as good at decorating as you are. I loved all the washi and stickers and stamps and cutouts and pockets and fold-outs. Thanks for the Neil Gaiman recommendation--Ive read a couple of his, and I'll add this one to my list. I've also read A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn. I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for all the extras, too. What adhesive did you use to attach things in the journal? It seems really good!
Response: Yay! So glad you enjoyed it! I used a combo if regular Elmer's glue stick and Tombow glue tape. I'm so happy you like it all!

My daughter’s Haiku:

Today I am in - Tomorrow will be the same - All spaces are small

Appropriate for all of us! Couldn’t squeeze that one on the postcard.
