About me

Industry Education
Occupation Special Education teacher and newspaper and yearbook advisor
Location Illinois, United States
Introduction I am a mom, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I have lots and lots of interests in my life from paper crafting to photography to reading and writing. I am a quintessential Pisces and have many facets to my personality. I am very creative, a dreamer, very emotional, have a hard time making up my mind, and am often conflicted in my feelings. If left alone to my own devices, I would dream my life away. I get very caught up in the "I wish-es" and am really trying to make those wishes into actions.
Interests reading, music, movies, poetry, crafts- mainly papercrafting and beading, cottage style decorating, vintage and retro stuff, dishes and linens, candles, photography, holidays, houses, collecting, dreaming, seasons
