About Me

Hi there! I'm an American homeschooling mom of two little ones. We recently moved back to the USA after living in England and Germany for a few years. I love making and crafting, genealogy, antique shops, going to the beach, and jigsaw puzzles. Check out my Pinterest boards (link above) for the easiest way to see what inspires me.

Favorite Crafts

I mostly love making collages from painted paper, creating minizines, and painting with watercolors. Also stamp carving, book binding, embroidery, and painted rocks. But really I love to experiment with any medium.

Favorite Music

Avett Brothers, Barenaked Ladies, Counting Crows, Dispatch, Guster, Jack Johnson, and Regina Spektor

Favorite Books

All the Light We Cannot See (Anthony Doerr), We the Living (Ayn Rand), Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms (Katherine Rundell), Agatha Christie mysteries, The Nightingale (Kristin Hannah), The Zone of Interest (Martin Amis), Bringing Up Bébé (Pamela Druckerman), Bloomibility (Sharon Creech), Harry Potter series, David Sedaris, Bringing Nettie Back (Nancy Hope Wilson), Nancy Drew, and beautiful children's picture books

Favorite Things

dollhouses and all miniature things, free little art galleries, minizines, french braids, children's picture books, coffee with milk, slightly burnt M&M cookies, tiny floral patterns, glass jars and bottles, handwritten letters, bike rides at sunset, vanilla ice cream sprinkled with honey & cinnamon & basil (try it!), the moon, pancakes with peanut butter & maple syrup, documenting everyday life in my journal, rain boots, rubber stamps, tea with scones, ukuleles, the beach, wooden toys, the zoo, pecan pie, lilacs, miniature ceramic houses, gumball machines, ships in bottles, cinnamon rolls, the farm, homemade rhubarb soda, quilts, cuckoo clocks, baskets and wooden boxes, colored pencils, vinyl records, found objects

Favorite Colors

brown, olive green, dusty pink

Favorite Flavors/Scents

honey, rose, coconut, cinnamon, coffee

Comment: Thanks for the nice PC and your note. Our good friend home schools her three seven-year-olds and I have them one of the two days a week she works. She exchanges with another home school mom on the other day. She leaves them with a loose lesson plan and I do my best. I haven't been fired yet, after two years, so I guess I'm doing okay.
Response: Love it! I bet you do a great job. "I haven't been fired yet" made me laugh out loud 😁

Response: You're welcome!! ❤️ Maybe we can do a private swap in the future, so I can send you chocolate from your wishlist (in the winter so it doesn't melt!).
