|Occupation||Teacher, Designer, Author|
|Location||Charleston, South Carolina, United States|
|Introduction||Isn't it all about me? No seriously, I live a very busy life trying to fit in "work" while having fun with family and friends. My "work" may be divided into 3 parts: 1.) For almost 20 years I have travelled all over the country teaching needlework and writing articles for needlework magazines. I have also written and illustrated several non-fiction books and a children's book. I used to own a shop and I still do mail order which I hate doing because it is repetitive and boring 2.) I also have another life in which I teach art to children in grades 1-8. Being an art teacher is a wonderful joy. I've been teaching in elementary and middle schools for over 20 years. 3.) My other work life involves voluntarism. I have been a volunteer since I was a Girl Scout and continue by serving on local and national boards and by not knowing how or when to say "No".|

Well, maybe they don't need them, but don't you think that some fish might like a bicycle?
Yes, of course, and in the same way that Christopher Walken thinks it would be cool if he had a tail.
