I live in central Texas with three precocious cats, in order of age (NOT intelligence): LuLu (male), Baxter, and Cookie. I enjoy
* paper crafting,
* essential oils,
* memory keeping smash book style,
* snail mail/pen palling/happy mail/postcards, and
* Bible journaling and study.
I have always loved to read. I especially like mystery/thriller types of novels (John Grisham, Dean Koontz, Lee & Child) and the occasional romance. My current favorite series is about Armand Gamache and is written by Louise Penny. I don't typically re-read fiction, but this series I plan to!
My favorite books are The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah and Watchers by Dean Koontz.
My non-fiction shelves consist primarily of Bible studies & theology, yoga, and genealogy & history reference.
I always have one hard copy fiction, one audible fiction, and 1-2 Bible studies going at a time.
I enjoy television more than movies because I appreciate the talent it takes to keep the audience involved for years in a plot. All time favorites include Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Alias, LOST, Big Bang Theory, and x-Files. I may have been a Survivor fanatic since it started. :)
I get hung up on fascinating podcasts sometimes. So much so that I want to take notes on them. Like Serial, Undisclosed, etc.
I spend too much time pinning things I'll never do on Pinterest or in craft swap Facebook groups.
I enjoy knitting (I can only do parallelograms - nothing fancy! - but I'm all about the scarves and potholders) and genealogy.
I'm still trying to find my paper crafting niche....I'm experimenting with making cards, pocket letters, embellishments, flip books, etc. I also love playing with paint. I use journaling cards, stickers, ephemera, etc. in my journals and planners. I use napkins for Bible journaling. So many napkins and bits and pieces that I love...I need to get into collages and glue books!
current junk journal themes that I'm collecting things for:
* tea time,
* farm animal,
I love memory keeping (smash book style, a little Project Life style) and planning. I've had a paper planner all my life and I love seeing more people getting involved in it. Some of the things I'm currently using:
I collect/hoard journals and notebooks and office supplies and paper crafting supplies and napkins. It's an obsession.
I also collect mouse figurines and images, Gorjuss girl mini stamps, and location/vacation spoons.
I love butterflies, dragonflies, cats, and mice so they show up in my crafting a lot.
POSTCARDS! I love collecting postcards around the world and am a postcrosser! Please write a little about yourself... what makes your town special, what you're currently reading, what your plans are for the weekend. anything!. I love them addressed, written on, stamped, and well traveled!
PEN PALS! I love snail mail and would love to have more pen pals, especially outside the United States.
I mark items sent once I leave in an outgoing mail box or the post office itself. If I leave after my daily mail delivery, I assume the postmark is after the next day's delivery (and pickup) but considering how slow my mailman is, I can't guarantee it is even processed the same day! I try to compensate for this unknown in my sending. :)
If you don't receive, please PM me before rating. I may have a tracking number or other information to locate it and I am always willing to resend.
I rate upon receipt because that what I want people to do for me! But please know that I don't go to the post office to pick up mail every day. :)
