About Me

I live in North Carolina with my two sons, my husband and a Shetland Sheepdog named Toby.

I work part-time in the clinical laboratory of a big hospital.

I like to take beach vacations in North and South Carolina. My husband and I took 3 Caribbean cruises in the past few years and I can't wait to take another. Now I can add Alaska to the list. We just returned from an Alaskan cruise ( May 2019). The cruise was great and the scenery was beautiful.

Favorite Television

I like to watch Blacklist, America Ninja Warrior, The Enemy Within.

Favorite Crafts

I love Pocket Letters! I like rubber stamping and all sorts of paper crafts. I make birthday cards for my family and friends. I love making prints using the gelli plate because you never know what you will get. I make journals - all sorts; for traveling or just to use every day. I have gotten into the coloring book craze. Collages are my new thing - I am enjoying some collage FB groups.

Other Interests

Another thing that ends up being a hobby of sorts is grocery store couponing. I am by no means an extreme couponer but I do spend time clipping and sorting coupons. It makes the chore of grocery shopping more fun. Plus if I save money I have more money for craft supplies.

I also plant a vegetable garden each summer for a supply of tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.

I like to do Catholic Bible Studies.

Jan 2018: I am sort of obsessed with my Instant Pot. I have been trying many recipes.


I like all colors but I do like pink. I live in a house full of boys/men so I have to get some girlie pink when I can. Likes: flowers, cute animals, fashion, dogs, inspirational stuff/ Bible verses, garden themes. microscopes and test tubes, the beach, cruises, butterflies, * Crazy Birds * Gorguss Girls, * Prima Dolls
