My name is Dug. I have just met you and I love you.
Actually, my name is Shauna. Some people call me Cookie, Tink, Squirrel, or Gigglebug and my parents call me Squirt or Squit. I also go by SkayeDreamer (hence my web address). I am an amateur photographer. I am an artist. I am a writer. I am a stamper turned scrapper. I am right-brained (usually). I am messy and a terrible housekeeper. I love to bake and my specialty is pumpkin cookies. I love cinnamon and I am a chocoholic. I want to stop being a sugar-holic but I don't know how. I am usually late to things. My favorite color combination is orchid and turquoise. I am indecisive. I listen to pop and country and hip-hop/rap and a whole bunch of other random things like my current favorite band - Blue October. I adore Adele and I believe everyone should listen to Michael Franti & Spearhead. I like to sing at the top of my lungs while driving. My favorite movies are generally the ones made for kids ("It's so FLUFFY!"). I find beauty in everything and I see photo opportunities everywhere I look. I love the flora and fauna that our world has to offer. I sometimes lack confidence but I am gaining personal strength. "I am not perfect, nor do I strive to be" (Blue October). Sometimes my body and my mind don't speak the same language. I have a handful or two of health problems but I try not to let it weigh me down. I am an only-child. I enjoy reading but barely seem to find the time for it anymore. I collect stuffed animals (mostly bears and bunnies) and Tinker Bell things. I believe in fairies, soul mates, twin flames, and real magic (the kind God makes). I am a Libra. I am a dreamer. I AM ME.
Okay - here's a little bit more info about me: I married my wonderful husband, Andrew, on November 5, 2016. We live in our new old home (check out my blog for more) with our 3 adorable kitties - Lucy Grayce, Sasha Rayne, and Petunia Rey. I have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction and I'm currently teaching 3rd grade. I have two independent sales businesses (Origami Owl and Scentsy). On occasion I even sell the beaded jewelry and bookmarks I make. Hey, I gotta support my art habits somehow!
Oh, and I collect quotes, so if you have any awesome ones - send them my way! I had been listing them here, but I have so many I decided to start a new page just for my favorite bits of inspiration.
