About Me

I live in Montana, USA. I am in my mid-thirties and have a husband and two daughters who are elementary school ages. I have 3 dogs and 1 cat, although of my dogs basically acts like a cat. haha.

I work full time as a Data Analyst, so lots of data wrangling for me! I also participate in Girl Scouts with my daughters.

I love to read, knit/crochet, and try my hand at calligraphy. I learned a little bit of German in high school and would like to read/write more in it. I am a very open-minded person, looking to make snail mail one of my new hobbies.

Favorite Books

I love to read a variety of things, but will easily drop a book if I don't like it within the first 50 or so pages. I read eclectic romance, fiction with strong women characters, and I love a fun self help book. :)

My very favorite books, which get many re-reads are: Jane Eyre, Gone with the Wind, and Time Traveller's Wife.

I also read Manga but found I have to be in the right mood for that.

Favorite Television

I am a big Doctor Who fan, although I am pretty far behind on the series right now. Most recently, I am re-watching friends, watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (I love the musical component), and sitting through the long wait for Game of Thrones to start back up. I don't spend a LOT of time watching tv, but it is a nice break from time to time.

I pretty much only have Netflix so Currently watching : Grace and Frankie

Jessica Jones

I want to watch This is Us but have not seen any of it yet.

I don't have any Must Send items or really any Don't Send items. I am not religous, but I would probably just re-gift the items to someone else fi I got them. I try to be economical with my Crafty Spending so I don't have a huge endless stash, so I truly appreciate every single bit of crafty goodness I get.

    • My husband's snoring

Favorite Crafts

I have been known to try out MANY different crafts:

  • Knitting
  • Crochet
  • I did my own yarn spinning and dying for awhile
  • Digital Scrapbooking
  • Paper Scrapbooking
  • Pointed Tip Pen Calligraphy
  • Zendoodle
  • Currently getting into Paper Cutting

Comment: Swap was sent late by almost a week. I would have rated a 5 anyway if they had been made, but they were just project life cards :( I would have rated a 5 had sender reached out to say it would be late, because I know life gets in the way.
Response: Fair rating, sent late, thanks for the feedback.
