About Me

I am a mom of a 9 year old girl (Jojo) and our little family of 3 live at the New Jersey shore (near Cape May). Also 1 dog and 1 hermit crab.

I enjoy listening to Public Radio. Since I was a kid, I have always loved sending and receiving mail. I loved having pen pals. You can make someones day all by sending a simple card letting them know you are thinking of them. I am urging my daughter to pick up this habit! I have stacks of cards and letters back and forth from me and my Gram and it is like reading a diary now and reminder of what I was doing during different phases of my life and hers too. They are one of my most treasured items along with my photographs.

I am involved with Postcrossing and I host a round robin FOOD & DRINK. I am keep an eye out for postcards in this category for this reason. I like vintage & retro style postcards, furry animals (otters, fox, etc.) just no reptiles. Postcards of owls, castles, old hollywood movies or movie stars, anything related to California. Weird, quirky, interesting, any postcards related to art, artists, art museums, & your handmade creations are welcome additions to my collection.
I am a Girl Scout leader for my daughters Girl Scout troop! I love being involved in trying to set an example for the next generation of girls in my scout troop. It really does give them a solid base of confidence and the feeling that they can do anything if they work hard and set their mind to it! If you were involved with Scouts as a leader or in a troop I would love to hear about it and to share it with the troop.

It is amazing the people you meet on this site and lucikly have had positive experiences and met many interesting people. I like to read your profile and see what we have in common and also our differences and touch base on those facts. I love hearing about the area you live in, what you do for fun, what book are you reading, are you currently creating anything? What is your favorite quote? Who inspires you? What do you love about yourself? What do you wish you could improve about yourself? Feel free to tell me anything, if you are having a bad day, feel free to vent! If you are having the best day ever, of course I want to hear about that too! Tell me about your day, your month, or even your year! I do not cringe easily! Feminism and anything related to the 19th ammendment is welcome, also great to show the GS troop.
My favorite color is purple. I love going to the arts & crafts store and antique stores. I like finding old pattern books and paper dolls, and postcards!

Favorite Movies

Books & Movies: I like the old Sherlock HolmesLove the Sherlock Holmes book too. Books & movies of Mrs. Marple (actually anything Agatha Christie) Poirot, Books: Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammet, Dexter Colin, Poe,
Movies: Grease, Dirty Dancing, His Girl Friday, Mystic Pizza, Pretty Woman, Murder My Sweet, Postman Always Rings Twice (original), Laura,

I am into older movies from the golden age, as opposed to the new movies. At any give time you will likely find the Classic Movie Channel on in the background while I am working on some art project or while listening to music: John Prine, Grateful Dead, Johnny Cash, Roseanne Cash, Beatles, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Beastie Boys (wide range of genres!)

Favorite Television

My favorite tv shows are mainly found on repeats these days or anything from BBC. I like British Mysteries (Rosemary & Thyme, Father Brown, Inspector Morse) & all things Ricky Gervais.

My favorites tv shows: As you may have guessed, mostly old reruns: Johnny Carson Show, Carol Burnett, Perry Mason (not so much the new Perry Mason), Matlock, Dick Van Dyke Show, Murder She Wrote, that 70's show, Mary Tyler Moore Show, Bob Newhart Show. Maybe I like the reruns because they were more innocent than some of the violence on tv today.

Themes

Themes that I gravitate towards: fox, polar bear, otters, tree of life, nature, butterfly, folklore, narwhals, paint, vintage or vintage repos, Alaska, vintage clothing & shoes, fascinators, tie dye & peace & love era, old Hollywood, old movie stars, California, classic writing, romance, stationary, postcards, pen pals, paper dolls, Kewpies, steampunk, 70's, Halloween & Christmas anytime of year, Lisa Frank, cameras, telephones. Postcards in any of those themes make me smile. I like gift tags, old library cards that were used in the back of the book to borrow library books...or any kind of industry paper like dry cleaning tags, etc. I am looking for a black pen with a very fine point, if you know where to find one please let me know I also like to see the quirky cartoon characters from your Country.

Favorite Crafts

I love all things related to arts & crafts. My latest craft love is UV resin jewelry. I make cards & envelopes & junk journals, postcards, metal stamping jewelry, alcohol inks/mixed media, jewelry making & beading, painting. I am always trying something new with crafting and enjoy hearing about your latest crafting adventures or other projects!
I have been into photography since I was a kid. You can usually find me with a camera around my neck. I love the art of taking pictures and have fun doing "photo shoots" with my daughter...

Comment: Thank you! I've never had a hermit crab. I always thought they were boring, but you make it sound like a lot of fun!

Comment: Thanks for the great card! I Think it is a spoof of one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. A cockerel is a young rooster, and poultry describes all domestic fowl. And although a shuttlecock is the item volleyed in badminton, it is also a clever way to describe a chicken going into space.

Comment: Cool postcard, thank you so much!! I am laughing right now because I always say I'm a little crazy when I do something out-of-the-norm, I definitely have my own quirks. Maybe its the name lol. :-)
