|Occupation||Custom picture framer/design consultant|
|Location||Tampa, Florida, United States|
|Introduction||I am a former art student who works on the edge of the arts as a custom picture framer and general help at an independent art store. I love it, but I needed a fire lit under my butt to continue all my artsy fartsy endeavors. So I created this blog with the challenge of spending one hour per day on something related to arts and/or crafts. This may include drawings, paintings, crochet projects, sewing projects, and occasional baking projects. I am hoping to ignite my creativity to create beautiful and/or useful (or delicious) things. My goal is to use cheap, repurposed, thrifted, or items I have at home already in order to reduce spending and waste. My dear husband Mark and I are looking for a house, so projects may be directed to home improvement. Cheap, pretty, and awesome are my goals!|
|Interests||Drawing, Painting, Baking, Crochet, sewing, fashion, DIY, shoes/purses, listening to music (and singing along), reading, yoga, walking/pretending to run, eating the world's best popcorn (made by my dear hubby)|
|Favorite Movies||Back to the Future, Moulin Rouge, Rushmore, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Star Wars (all of them), When Harry Met Sally, The Princess Bride, Doctor Who (Tv, I know, but so awesome he needs mention)|
|Favorite Music||The Beatles, The Kinks, Simon and Garfunkel, Weezer, Green Day, Coconut Records, The Shins|
|Favorite Books||The entire Harry Potter series, Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, A Christmas Carol...hmmm...there are others which escape me at the moment...|
If your whole body were a hot air balloon, would you stop eating spicy food?
I would not stop eating spicy food, as the gas the spicy food causes would help keep me afloat.
