About Me

I used to have loads of pen pals in high school. I felt nostalgic for those days so I signed up! I love crafts, vintage, antiquing, journaling, painting, and so much more! 🤪

I've lived and worked (and performed!) All over the world.

Countries/Territories visited: USA (Of course), Australia, Canada, France, Austria, Italy, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

Married for 8 years, live in Tennessee near Nashville. No children with the exception of 1 dog and 2 cats.

My doggo is named Sassy! She was rescued from a shelter in Nashville, TN.

My eldest cat is called Colonel. He was found wandering the streets of Hermitage, TN. He makes a lovely addition to my menagerie!

And my youngest cat is Weasley. He was rescued from a hoarder situation. He and 3 other cats and kittens were living in a pet carrier in their own filth. His white bits were yellow when we got him, and he stunk of urine. His nickname is Mr Peabody, since his body literally stunk of pee. (it's a funny name to me) He is well loved (and well bathed...) and he loves running around our house! He is my favorite!

I work for the State of Tennessee as a paralegal. I love my job!

I attend a lovely church here in Springfield, TN. Aside from being an active member of the worship team (singer), I am very much involved in the choir, children's ministry, and as of September 2021 - I am now the Director of the Women's ministry. I am a busy person, but I still somehow manage to find time to craft and swap!!! :)

FYI: Since I seem to be encountering this on a semi-regular basis... I joined swap-Bot on November 6, 2021. This was not the date I learned how to paint, draw, sew, write, craft, or mail things timely, It was just the date I found this site. Believe it or not, I've been doing all those things listed above (and many more) for a long, LONG time. Please please don't assume I am a "New artist" because I'm new here. I'm just an artist who is new to SWAP-BOT. Thanks!

Favorite Books

Thrillers, horror, adventure, sci-fi, steampunk, fantasy…

I’ve read a lot of Grady Hendrix lately. Love him!

I love me some Harry Potter. Favorite characters: The Weasleys. As a fellow ginger I claim them as my family! I also like Remus Lupin. He was a great man.

Favorite Music

I have eclectic tastes in music. Love anything from They Might Be Giants to Kirk Franklin and most stuff in between. Also an avid karaoke fan.

Go-to karaoke song: Sweet Child O’ Mine.

Favorite Movies

Huge horror fan. I like Marvel universe, Star Wars (OT mostly), Harry Potter, John Wick, most any sci-fi film, if it has Simon Pegg, Jemaine Clement, or Benedict Cumberbatch in it I’ll watch it.

While I am a Christian, I usually detest faith-based films because of the ATROCIOUS acting. I really really really want to love the films... but meh.

I usually prefer the book, but that doesn’t stop me from watching the film.

Favorite Television

Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Period Dramas, Comedy, and oddly enough: Yellowstone. Watched season 1 and 2 of The Chosen.. sooo good!

I also love silly comedies. Such as:
