I am a stay at home mother of 5. I have been married to the love of my life for over 15 years in that time we have lived in Las Vegas, San Diego and currently in Tillamook, Oregon. We have 3 daughters and 2 sons. My life is pretty crazy with having a big family! My oldest is in middle school and they go all the way down to a very stubborn "three-nager" I have a severely impacted child with autism and unfortunately I eat, sleep, and think autism. It is hard to catch a break and for that I feel crazily addicted to coffee, candy and netflix :)
My favorite books.
The Storied Life of AJ Fickery (if you havent read, you must... its fabulous) Anything by Rainbow Rowell The Girl on the Train Harry Potter (of course!) Childrens books Art books Travel books
oh and I love maps :)
Romantic Comedies are a total favorite, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan, OH, the Notebook is fabulous- sad, but good. I enjoy a classic comedy but nothing lewd or absolutely disgusting. I really enjoyed the Harry Potter Series and like it when good prevails over bad.
Glee, Lie to Me, Travel Channel, Raising Hope, The Amazing Race, Fixer Upper, IZombie, Cable Girls, Riverdale. I am loving Netflix :) Anything with subtitles, old reruns of Friends or Greys Anatomy
I love painting, and am currently looking for a new crafting hobby. I have tried so many. I sew, I can cross stich, I can bead jewelry, I like to learn new things.
I love decorating envelopes. ALOT. Dont be surprised if your envelope comes decorated even if it isn't part of the swap. I LOVE happy mail.
I love getting anything that can help me to create happy mail.
*Washi *hole punches *markers *white markers *stamps *shiny things!
I love science and Nature. It is my favorite and I use to teach Earth Science. I love things found in nature, rocks especially. I was a geology major prior to going into education. I am over the "normal" age of having a rock collection but it is one of my favorite hobbies! I am also a fan of shells, leaves, feathers, eggs, and anything that IS NOT CREEPY CRAWLY :P I do not like bugs, spiders, snakes, rats, or mice.
Can we just talk about my favorite vacation destination? Its France! I absolutely love everything about France. The people, the language, the architecture, the metro and oh, the Louvre. The food is amazing, the smells and sights. Ahhhh Paris. I can't get enough!
Postcard Preference- I like them naked :) written or unwritten its up to you. :)
My colors are grey, yellows, and a mix greens
I have a list of favorites here, but I really like ethnic and vintage items. Beads, buttons, boxes, tiny things, rhinestones, and shimmer, I collect antiques, I have a lot of wood items, spools, and little bottles from pharmacies a long time ago. I like hearts, butterflies, fairies, sunflowers, mermaids, brown leather, flowers in general and I really like things that you can't get everywhere. unique items.
I like winter, snow, and Christmas, I enjoy weather and love the fall.
Glitter, shiny, pretty things are always a fave, rhinestones, feathers, girlie girl things..and again vintage anything :) Earrings, bracelets, tiaras, cute socks.
I love mermaids, rainbows and house plants. I have a large garden and love being outside. succulents are so much fun for me. It has taken me so long to figure out that they don't need the water I want to give them!!!!
Current City: Tillamook, Oregon (yep, its where we make cheese!) It is very rural and along the Oregon Coast. Our county has more cows than people!
Favorite Fruit: Pears and cherries
Favorite outside activity: Hiking, crabbing, ROCK HUNTING! I am a geologist at heart. We do find a lot of agates because of living so close to the beach. It is a geological treasure hunt!
Favorite inside activity: crafting, painting, sewing (even though I am not good at it) Taking photos of my kids!
Animals :) I like just about any animal that would be deemed cute. I have a large rescue dog named Boots. He has a terrible back story, but lives a fabulous life now. And two very spoiled Holland Lop bunnies (Opal and Hazel)
I am really into Bees and hives. They are really special.
These are things I respectfully say "no" to,
Anything considered vulgar no bad language sexual images or suggestive langage
Nothing Autism related. I live with autism everyday in my life. I love the little boy but I despise the disorder. Anything autism related would take the happy feeling away from the mail.
No puzzle pieces, no awareness stickers/ buttons, etc.
Loose glitter.. yes I love it but please dont send it loose!
