Hi! I'm Amber! I'm a 30 year old married, mother of 2 amazing daughters. Adriannah is 12 and Dixie is 9! My husband and I have been married almost 10 years now, together 14. We live in Michigan (booo lol). Boring!
I have always been interested in crafts, especially paper crafts, though I don't consider myself specifically talented with it. I have a bit of craft ADD, so it's hard for me to sit down and finish a project - though I'm really hoping to make 2018 the year that changes that. I started getting into crafts around the time I turned 16 - when my Mom bought me a ton of scrapbooking things. I have slowly collected some stuff since then... Not nearly as much as some people have, but enough to make it fun to dig through all my bins! =D I would love to jump into the idea of making some handcrafted embellishments, I think that would be really special.
I recently got myself back into penpaling - as I had one when I was a teen. I also got my daughters into it. I'm hoping to show them how amazing different communities can be!
❁ I LOVE all things vintage floral. I'm super obsessed - paper, die cuts, watercolors, stickers, stamps, postcards .. seriously. I'm not picky, lol. They will always make me so happy.
❁ My favorite color is cranberry.
❁ My favorite animals are cats, otters, and giraffes. Favorite dogs are Great Danes.
❁ I love cute, pink/pastel, frilly things, but I also love dark colors - especially when galaxy-themed.
❁ I love anything to do with crystals and the mystic.
➳ Tutorials. No seriously. I keep seeing some of the most beautiful stuff on Instagram and would love to know how to make it. (I.e.: vellum shakers, ATCs, flipbooks etc)
➳ Wax Stamp & waxes
➳ Vellum paper
➳ Anything vintage floral or rose gold
➳ Unused vintage stamps (1c, 3c, 6c etc - suitable for using as postage)
➳ Postcards (No Ad cards, please)
➳ Stationary/Letter sets
➳ Gel Pens
➳ Planner kits/stickers
➳ French Macarons
➳ Handmade embellisments
NO THANK YOU:
⋆ Herbal tea, or coffee
⋆ Anything political or religious (Christmas etc, aside) - I love me some Jesus - I just don't prefer it in my Happy mail.
⋆ Creepy bugs
⋆ Reward/kid-ish/cheap stickers
⋆ Sports, patriotic, or Armed forces such...
I literally listen to almost anything. I'm not a huge fan of screamo type music.
But some things that I listen to at least fairly regularly are: Pop, rock, alternative, country, contemporary Christian, piano instrumental, jazz, some hip-hop/r&b, some rap...I love music as far back as the 50's through today.
Some of my favorites are: Maroon 5, Ron Pope, Imagine Dragons, and Fleetwood Mac.
I used to read a lot more than I currently do, but when I do, I tend to read YA. I love the Paranormal category - anything to do with fantasy, utopian/dystopia, sci-fi etc.
I also enjoy a good romance novel, of course. I gotta get my sap somewhere! ;)
When it comes to movies, I'm all over the board. I love horror movies - but I also love rom-coms, thrillers, supernatural movies, and good action movies (I'm pretty much sold on anything that has Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Liam Neeson or Timothy Olyphant in it.)
My two absolute favorites, though, are "The Labyrinth" and "Alice" (A SyFy movie)
Easier to list, though I don't watch any of these super regularly - and some I'm not completely caught up on:
Arrow, Supernatural, The Walking Dead, The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger Things, This Is Us, The Fosters
Again, I have craft ADD - but here are some things I've found that I DO enjoy doing, when I can get myself to sit down and complete them...
Diamond Paintings, Card-making, Scrapbooking, smash books, pen-pal letters, baking (I consider it a craft!)
