About Me

Update: 2-2-20. : I'm a new homeschooling mom and have no idea what I'm doing. Okay, only a little idea. So if you are a homeschooling person, having been homeschooled or homeschooled your children, any advice would be welcomed with open arms!

I love nature. To my core. I love being outside, getting dirty, gardening, bird watching, etc. I grew up on a small farm and am a hippy/hill-billy hybrid. I am eclectic and open-minded. I'm a wanna-be intellectual but most likely am never gonna be :) I have done things backward my whole life. I used to swim against the current and now I float in my kayak, going with the flow. I love my little boys; 5 yrs and 6 months and my husband more than anything. I close my eyes and exist in that thankful, joyous space as much as possible. I admit that I used to want to be a great many things to a great many people. I wanted recognition and to have a career and to be "successful". And now, all I want is to be with 3 people, to love them until my body gives way to wear and then to love them some more. I know, not exactly uggs and a vanilla frap and leggings, but still, extremely basic. And that's okay.

Favorite Music

I love nearly all music. Some of my Favorite Artists

  1. Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass Band

  2. Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Teddy Pendergrass

Post Cards

I have discovered that I like strange and unusual postcards! Nothing will offend me I assure you. I've come to value having a few funny and offensive postcards that I've picked up on trips because I have so much cute stuff and not a lot of 'different' stuff. Cute is good, don't get me wrong. But I also value obscure, odd, ugly or just plain ol' wtf. Anything goes with postcards! I also enjoy stickers, doodles, and neat handwriting/lettering. I try hard with lettering, to make it look good and any inspiration I can receive is appreciated.

Comment: What an amazing postcard. Thank you
Comment: Sorry for the late rating. Thank you so much for an amazing swap of so many wonderful vintage things! The parchment paper kitty pattern is precious... I'm a beginner at embroidery, but I think I will use it to create a piece or maybe a series of hoops. I appreciate all the botanical things (e.g. book pages) and love the groovy colorful postalette and cute raccoon postcard. Thanks again and be well!

Comment: What a delightful surprise to receive such love in an envelope 💜 I make my envelopes too and I know how much love you put into illustrating and impecably packing all the goodies for me. You were very proactive, checking what was the best way to mail it to me, and it was packed with love and care. Everytime I get an envelope like yours in the mail I remember why I'm here for. It's a shame I only have one heart to give you :)
