About Me

I am a mother of 3 kiddos. Caelen (15), Alisha (11) and Rorey (7). We have two cats named Simee and Kiawa, A golden retriever named Dreamy, and two rabbits named Sir Bilbo OakenFloof and Madam Razabelle. My husband is in the military. We are stationed at Fort Carson, CO. We homeschool our kids. We are a family of Secular Humanists (so, please no religious things. unless its buddhist quotes. I do enjoy those).

I love making junk journals. I love painting, photography, poetry, watching netflix, going to theme parks, nature hikes, lazy rivers and collecting children's picture books.

I try to put in my very best effort to every swap, and I really appreciate it when people send me things that they really put their heart into. I love handmade paper crafts; like journals, flipbooks, notecards, and ATC's.

My fave colors are Purple, teal and emerald green. I like all of those colors paired with Black as well. I Like things to have a kind of dark vibe.

Favorite Music

I love songs that tell a good story, and have a good beat. I find myself listening to anything across the board often....

I am currently really into music by: Smith & Thell, Pvris, Royal & the Serpent, Imagine Dragons, MisterWives, Of Monsters and Men, Billie Eilish, Lewis Capaldi, Anne-Marie.

Favorite Movies

Some of my favorites are Harry Potter series, LOTR, Sherlock Holmes. I love adventure movies. I grew up on Indiana Jones and Star Wars.

Favorite Television

Current faves are Handmaid's Tale, Call the Midwife, This is Us, Poldark, and Outlander. I really enjoy Masterpiece Theater.

Some of my fave animated series are Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Hilda, The Dragon Prince, and Kipo and the Wonderbeast.

Favorite Crafts

I love making "junk" journals, handmade postcards, and flipbooks.

Favorite things

Some of my favorite things to do are taking road trips, adventuring, taking photos of everything, shopping (which i do too much), being silly with my kids, taking walks, creating things, thrift stores, yard saling, going to the theatre, writing poetry.

I like : Fairies, tiger lillies, birds, butterflies, dragons, pirates, Vintage, steampunk

Animals: Owls, Wolves, Horses, Otters, All big cats, Panda bears, Rabbits, \

I love receiving handmade things that i can tell someone really put their heart into.

I like inspirational quotes, but please nothing religious.

dislikes

i don't really care for dark chocolate, black licorice, coconut candies. i really don't want any religous things, although angels are alright, just no crosses or biblical quotes please.

i'm allergic to latex.

Comment: i love this so much! it is gorgeous! how did you make it ?
Response: So glad you like it! I can't remember everything I did in it, but I took the pages out of an old book and pamphlet stitched scrapbook papers in. They are fairly simple to put together. If you want to, you could look up Johanna Clough on YouTube. She makes some very cool junk journals.

Comment: Thank you for sharing your answers! I hope you get your spark back for writing. I have a few hobbies that I thought would follow me throughout life, but that hasn't been the case. I agree with your answer on the happiness question; being able to enrich your life and become more cultured is definitely easier with money!
