About Me

Hello! I'm Shannon, a 51 year old who is very young at heart! I've been married to my best friend for 26 years. We have a son, a daughter, and two very spoiled cats.

I started my career as a high school English teacher. After taking several years off to be home with my kiddos, I decided to go back to school for my Master's in social work ---- at age 41!! I work in the field of aging.

Favorite Crafts

Favorite Crafts: I have always been a creative person and have dabbled in most all types of arts & crafts. I enjoy paper crafts of all types, Pocket Letters, flip books, tag flips, ATC, Smash*book / junk journals; up-cycling and DIY crafts. I love perusing Pinterest and finding new DIY projects. Pinterest is becoming quite a habit for me. I wish I spent as much time working on Pinterest ideas and recipes as I do pinning them :).

I also love watching YouTube craft tutorials and hauls. My favorite store to purchase crafts from is Tuesday Morning, but I won't say "no" to any store that sells quality craft supplies at an affordable price.

Likes (and mild obsessions)

~ Die cut images ~ Stamped images ~ Washi tape ~ Note cards & other stationary ~ Fun paperclips ~ Retro / vintage ~ Magnets ~ Ephemera ~ Journaling cards (for Smash*books / junk journals) ~ Inspirational quotes ~Stickers (NOT kid stickers or teacher "reward" stickers) ~ Colors - aqua, pink, green, coral, blue - but truly, I love all colors. ~ Something unique and interesting about yourself and/ or your little corner of the world :)

Dislikes

~ Skulls, horror, etc. ~ CLOWNS ~ Anime ~ Strong scents (vanilla, musky, 'manly') ~ Stickers that are - puffy, scratch 'n sniff, or tiny "teacher reward" types ~ Violence ~ Neon colors

Favorite Movies

I don't make it to the theatre very often, but I do enjoy movies and watch them once they reach cable or Netflix. Some of my all-time favorites are: The Wizard of Oz; Mulon Rouge; It's Kind of a Funny Story; A Beautiful Mind; American Beauty; Across the Universe; Bridesmaids; Death at a Funeral. I am not fond of Fantasy, Anime, Horror, or Action/Adventure.

Reading & Journaling

I absolutely love to read! My favorite types of books are biographies, psychological thrillers, and contemporary fiction. I also like non-fiction on topics that interest me (social justice, human behavior, crafting, arts, architecture, and much more!)

I also love magazines about crafting, organization, healthy living. (my newest favorite is Project Calm).

I use a Happy Planner as a memory book - decorating the pages and writing events, what's going on in my life and around the world. I use a Polaroid Mint to print mini photo stickers to add to this memory book. I also use other types of journals for sketching, writing, quotes, etc. I just really like inspiration. Life is hard and it's always good to remember that you can survive :) That sounds dorky, but it is helpful to me.

Final Note

I promise to always rate. If you send me something and I haven't rated, please let me know.

I also put a lot of effort into my swaps and I appreciate when others do the same. For example, a pocket letter that is just paper and stickers really makes me sad. It just doesn't show effort. I promise to put effort into everything I send. Otherwise, I won't sign up for a swap. I've seen people sign up for 20 swaps, then send them late, send them sloppy, and don't put in the effort. I wonder why. I feel like quality should always come before quantity. I don't say these things to be a "swap snob"; however, I just love SwapBot and want to make this a happy place that is worthwhile for everyone :).

Comment: I could have written the very same goals! I had back surgery at the end of 2019, so that was my main goal, but I definitely want to read more books and get organized--that's a constant! Here's to all of our goals and dreams coming true in 2020!

Hey :) your pocket letter is on its way although it may take a while longer than normal, due to the easter events. Mail me if something is wrong :)
