About Me

*updated profile on 12/26/2016

I am an eclectic soul with much love for my family and unending love for my daughter who was diagnosed on the Autism spectrum at an early age. I support those with disabilities and desire for our society to be more accepting of their conditions. Human behavior intrigues me and I enjoy learning new techniques and curriculum in the education field. I just completed my teacher certification in the Fall. College is very addictive and I have a desire to pursue another degree. I am extremely dedicated to friends, family, paper crafts, my faith, and Yelping. I volunteer at a restaurant that feeds those in need. A great establishment and truly is an asset for the community.


My favorites:

I especially like handmade items over mass produced.

Love unique handmade jewelry: birds, crosses, hearts, or pretty dangles.

Prayer cards with Psalms or uplifting words.

Love shabby chic or farmhouse style.

Love junk journals.

Love items with birds because daughter's nickname is J-bird.

Interests include traveling, meeting people, adapting to cultural surroundings, and reading.

I have been on a huge Disney kick the last year with three visits! Eek! Christmas and birthday's are much more magical there.

One of my fave places to go to is New Orleans and adore Cajun food and listening to Jazz.

Also a beach lover! Usually go to Myrtle Beach with family but love Turks and Caicos, Aruba, and Pinel Island. The feel of sand on my toes is heaven!

Music is a huge range from 80's, Jazz, Pop, Rock, ALternative, holiday, Christian, gospel, and Blues.

Favorite flower is a gerber daisy, love the pink shades!

No pets here.

Favorite Television: Younger, Power, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Outlander, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Walking Dead, Shameless, Luther, Tha Man in the High Castle, Goliath, Marvel series like Luke Cage, oh wow! That's a lot of Tv! Also too much on the Food Network and Cooking channels.

Books: I read fiction and non fiction.

My house decor: farmhouse style with mostly red, black, and cream.

I love to bake! I like making cookies, cakes, brownies, lemon bars, Hamantashen,, bread, and cupcakes. I have a sweet tooth.

Love chocolate but trying to quit. :)

Favorite scents are Clinique Happy Heart, Philosophy Amazing Grace and Pure Grace.
Love Philosophy lotions and soaps, BBW vanilla bean body cream or any of their nourishing hand soap that isn't too floral or musky. Also love Gold Bond healing hands cream.

Not one to do my nails often. Only in the Spring and Summer. So unglamorous.

Favorite beverage in morning is coffee in my Keurig. Tazo Zen green tea, Lemon zinger, Starbucks Breakfast blend, and other medium roast coffees.

Not so crazy about

and really do not want any of these items: -anything Neon, -reward stickers, -pony beads, -shaped buttons, -fibers used to knit -stuffed animals -highly fragrant/ incense

Not crazy about smoke infused items.


-Project Life cards -Peanuts gang notes or paper -uplifting quotes -washi tape -die cuts for Flipbooks -address labels for me!!! -artsy or cute mail art stamps for envelopes -metal die cuts for Evolution -vintage ephemera -cute shaped paper clips -colored twine -clear stickers with phrases or words

I pledge to rate!
