Introduction Welcome to my online journal. The stuff I write about are mostly notes to myself on things that interest me. When I'm not working, I am an arts and crafts enthusiast. My husband and cats anticipate the day when I cover our home (and them) with knit-sewn-quilted-screenprinted-bedazzled-doodled cozies. These crafting exploits will be revealed in the memoirs I plan to self-publish after securing the perfect letterpress on ebay.
Interests I like music, crafts, cooking, current events, graphic design, modern achitecture, art, illustration, photgraphy, theatre, movies, literature, travel, foreign languages, fashion, furniture design, yoga, hiking, my cats, education, rainy days, flowers and gardens, a good cuppa tea, vanilla bean ice cream, fresh blueberries, good stories, flipping through magazines, reading blogs... I don't care for ignorance, rudeness, bad smells, eating too much, bad conversationalists, driving around town, cheaply made things, workin' for a living, poor parenting...
