|Introduction||I am an artist because I make art (and only recently embraced that definition). I create beauty daily, although I am very loosey-goosey about it; my daily beauty could be a new handmade necklace or a yummy meal from scratch or a photograph or a handmade book or a sweet moment of interaction with someone or a scrapbook page or a pair of earrings or...|
|Interests||Creating beauty every day, using my brain for good rather than evil, spending time with great people, spending time ALONE, drinking Italian wine and eating Italian food, taking long baths in water so hot I sweat for two hours afterwards, great music, dark chocolate with chili pepper, photography, reading, seeing something I love with a really expensive price tag and going home and making it myself instead, Murano glass jewelry from my friend Matteo's store in Venice, avoiding: drama; dirty dogs who sniff crotches and/or drool all over; cigarette smoke; and people who make me feel bad.|
|Favorite Books||Traveling Mercies, Cutting for Stone, A Prayer for Owen Meany|

The only one that has anything at all to do with crafting--the scissor! :)
