About Me

Married, mother of three. Been married for 26 years to a wonderful Argentine fellow. We have 2 boys and one girl.

I am a certified Life Coach @ Lost & Found Life Coaching.

I also work full-time as an Associate Librarian. I've been working at our small public library for about 9 years. I do collection development for the juvenile fiction/series/audiobooks for our four branches. And back before COVID I did preschool storytimes, baby storytimes, and outreach programs for the local high school, middle school, elementary school, and a few preschools.

I love writing letters, getting letters, sending letters, making funny stuff to send in the mail. All things mail. I've even read books filled with other peoples letters & notes & lists, etc. I would love to have some new pen pals. What fun it is to make new friends!

I've spent my life working with children in one capacity or another. Youth at my church. Babysitting. Facilitating workshops for troubled youth & their parents. Taking care of my own kids while having half the neighborhood at my house on any given day.

Love, love, love to read. Anything clean. I especially adore youth fiction/fantasy & kids books. Brochures. Flyers. Cereal box labels. You name it.

Have kept a journal since I was about 8 or 9 years old. (Now over 50 - that's lots of journals.) I've just started adding some "art" to my journaling and have been bullet journaling for nearly 3 years.

Favorite Books

The Hunger Games, The Outsiders, The Alchemist, Gregor the Overlander Series, Leven Thumps Series, Eragon Series, The Candy Shop Wars, Seventeen Summer, The Giver, Ink Heart series, Cinder, Legend, The Girl Who Came Home, The House Girl, scriptures, magazines, biographies on occasion, The Chilbury Ladies Choir, The Women in the Castle, The Grave Yard Book, The Raven Boys, blogs, cereal boxes, instruction manuals, etc.

Historical, dystopian, science fiction, fantasy, the occasional clean romance. Adventure. I enjoy middle-grade, teen, and adult books.

Favorite Television

CSI, Criminal Minds, The Middle, Hawaii 5-0, Andy Griffeth Show, Monk, Forever, SWAT, The Rookie, Stranger Things, Broadchurch, Foyle's War, Hinterland, Lie to Me, The Other One, The Resident, The Good Doctor, Land Girls, Call the Midwife, Downton Abbey,

Favorite Music

Oingo Boingo, Depeche Mode, U2, Van Halen, The Cure, INXS, Aha, Alphaville, Phil Collins, Genesis, The Cutting Crew, Duran Duran, Enya, Eurythmics, Asia, Robert Plant, Bruce Hornseby & The Range, Michael Jackson, Journey, Mike & The Mechanics, most things 80's, The Piano Guys. The Two Cellos. Cold Play. Imagine Dragons. King & Country. Instrumental music.

When my son introduced me to Spotify, I was in Heaven!

Favorite Crafts

Mailart, creating postcards, minizines, art journaling, collage, journaling (making travel journals).

One of my co-workers/fellow swap-botian and I have been learning how to water color. She and I bought the same book and paint postcards that we send to each other. That's been fun!

Wish List

Sticky notes. Washi tape. Ephemera.

Have you read the "unwind "series

BusyB on Jan 27, 2013:

Oh wow! I LOVE the postcard you sent to me as a thank you card. Your own design! I am very inspired to make my own now but need to find info first. Your note made me laugh about the Connies you've known. HA! To answer your question about smash/junk journals... I have made two in swaps, currently finishing 2, one for a swap on the Bot and one for a friend. AND starting one for me this week! Awesome fun! Thanks again!
