About Me

My name is Rachael and I juggle working full time, raising 2 preteens and a toddler, chores and being a wife along with my mostly crafting related hobbies.

I am an avid reader-last year I read over 80 books! I will read almost any genre.

I don't have any pets, although I wish I had some cats and a dog or two. I would love to have a small farm with a few cows, a horse and a couple llamas but that would have to be after retirement in 25ish years.

I collect lots of things including: enamel pins, snow globes, fabric, notebooks/journals, notecards, postcards, cute postage stamps and ephemera/found items that might be used for a project or might sit in a box forever 😉.

Crafts & Hobbies

I love quilting, both traditionally pieced and crazy pieced, and I just discovered EPP a little over a year ago and absolutely love it. I've never actually finished a full size quilting project! I've got at least 10 WIPs all set aside for various reasons (mostly lack of time, inspiration, motivation or interest)

I enjoy most crafts-paper crafts, art projects, photo transfer-I love making ornaments out of tiles with photos transferred onto them, altered items, yarn and string projects (I can't really knit or crochet though) & just about anything that falls into my lap.

I think I spend more time collecting the supplies for projects than actually doing any of them! 'I can make that' is my usual response when I see something cute in the store, and sometimes I'll buy the stuff to make it then it usually sits in a closet or box for.ev.er!

I don't scrapbook much, although I have tons of supplies, my problem is doing the journaling I think. I have made small scale scrapbooks-altoid tin and CD case sized. I love to take the scrapbook kits and turn them into cards.

I love Found Poetry. I came across the book 'Humunent' almost 20 years ago and just love looking through it every once in awhile. I would love to do a large scale project like that but so far I only do a page at a time, sometimes for ATCs, usually just because.

I love photography and would love to do that for a living. I've taken a couple classes over the years and take pictures for friends. I also love taking pictures of landscapes, flowers and animals and nature, and I want to do a series of heavy duty equipment-anytime I see a construction site I want to stop. I also like taking closeups of things especially food, eventually I'll invest in a macro lens.

When I'm not reading or attempting to craft, or thinking about crafting projects I could be doing, I enjoy cooking, baking, eating, listening to music, solving (or attempting to solve) logic problems in the penny mags, designing fabrics to print on spoonflower, editing photos & creating photo gifts. This list seems long but some of these I only get a chance to do once in awhile, I still enjoy them enough to count though :)

Comment: Thank you for your wonderful post card. I have not heard about the Lunar Chronicles Series before and your card has interested me in finding out more about it. Thank you, Risna
Response: I'm glad my postcard made it and possibly inspired you to check out the book! I had my reservations going into it but am enjoying it, it's 6 books,all retelling classic fairytales in a future dystopian world with cyborgs and androids and magic. Much better than I expected it to be when I first came across it.

Comment: Your list seems so interesting. I haven’t read a thing on your list but am looking forward to tracking them down. Thank you!
Response: I hope you do enjoy them if you end up reading them! Looking at your favorite books on your profile, I think you would like Things You Save in a Fire & The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek (which is set in the Appalachians).

Comment: "Things You Save In a Fire" is in my to read pile!
Response: I loved Things You Save in a Fire! I honestly did not know what it was about when I started reading it - I had read the back like 6 months before I actually read the book and didn't re-read it when I started! There were parts that made me laugh out loud and parts that made me cry.

Comment: Okay, so like I added 3 of these to my goodreads list. Got any more recs? Cause you have really good taste. Also I love the postcard. (And I read the new WC book and it is GOOD)
Response: I am glad you like them! I love reading pretty much everything so I tried to pick a variety of books that I've read recently and shelved as "need more stars" on goodreads. I can't wait to read the new WC book-I loved the others. Happy Reading!
