Favorite Music

My favorite music would be anything that gets me up and dancing. It can be from any genre as long as it has a great rhythm, great beat, great groove, etc. A few of my favorites to dance to are: George Clinton - Atomic Dog, Enur - Calabria 2007, Wild Cherry - Play That Funky Music White Boy, LL Cool J - Headsprung, Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines, & Sage the Gemini/IamSu - Gas Pedal.

I was "late bloomer" in my discovery of radio. Most of my friends like mid 80's music, but I got hooked on early 90's Rap; Run D.M.C., Beastie Boys, Mc Hammer, Ice Cube.

On the other spectrum, the music that relaxes me is 40's Big Band; Glenn Miller, Billie Holiday, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald,

About Me

I live in Illinois, in a far suburb of Chicagoland with my husband. We adopted two dogs who happen to be sisters. They do a lot of things the same but their looks and personality are almost completely different.

We have over an acre of property with a lot of trees. I've tried my hand at flower and vegetable gardening in small areas where there is a bit of sun. Every year is a learning experience. My job is at a small electrical contractor's office as the office manager. I do almost everything that's not field work. But my favorite is working with Auto CAD laying out the systems we install on drawings/blue prints.

Favorite Movies

I like romantic comedies, action adventure and science fiction. My watch over and over again list includes: Austenland, Ever After: A Cinderella Story, Practical Magic, Big Hero 6, Guardians of the Galaxy, Bring it On, Hackers, The Other Woman, Zombieland, Warm Bodies, Iron Man, Avengers.

Favorite Crafts

My favorite craft is making greeting cards with rubber stamps. I've always liked to draw and color with colored pencils, so some of my recent cards have included that. Lately I've been also making cards with just paper cuts.


I like:

butterflies, crickets, spiders, actually all types of bugs,





retro/vintage cars, trains and planes


Alice in Wonderland,

Wizard of Oz,


Supernatural creatures and traditional movie monsters,

paisley designs,

gothic and steampunk styles,

colors in dusty vintage and gemstone tones, especially purples, blues, greens

Old architecture

I collect money, especially coins. I also like tokens.

I used to collect comic books and stamps. I don't any more but I still enjoy them.


I dislike:

cutesy toy like animals; the ones that have patches and stitching,

baby items,

cutesy Halloween designs; like a teddy bear with a cape, that's not Halloween enough to me, (cute monsters are ok)

very girly things,

main stream religious items.


I like tea, especially green. I used to drink black tea a lot but after becoming lactose intolerant it now upsets my stomach, so I don't drink it too often. Flavors of green tea I know I like are lemon, mixed berry, honey, and mint.

I don't like licorice, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple and watermelon flavors. Also I don't like anything with artificial sweeteners.

I love chocolate but not being able to have dairy has limited me to dark chocolate. There are also some chocolates made with chocolate liquor instead of dairy.

Wish List

Postcards; especially ones with an older car or more in the picture

Coins; old US or any foreign coins even metal tokens

Rubber stamps; store bought or handmade

Playing cards in interesting designs, new or used but in complete sets

Vintage and/or vintage style paper goods

Anything you think I would like will be appreciated.

Comment: Thank you so much for the gorgeous assortment of things I love! The vintage kitten xmas giftwrap is so beautiful, and I'll be using the sewing pages in my sewing journal (I think you're right; I bet someone tore them out of the magazine and tucked them away for the purpose of making the aprons!). The iridescent heart stickers are awesome too! Very early 90s looking!
