About me

Industry Consulting
Occupation Self-employed
Location Portland, OR, United States
Introduction I'm a lazy homemaker, sometimes crafter, avid reader and cross stitcher and a failing novice container gardener with multiple food intolerances (dairy, soy, gluten and eggs) trying to make ends meet in Portland, Oregon. I'm originally from Arkansas, but I call Portland "home" and really mean it! My other half is Garen and his son Hunter lives with us full-time, while his daughter Olivia visits on weekends. We're a pet-free, smoke-free, sanity-optional second-floor apartment family.
Interests Cooking, Container Gardening, cross-stitching, embroidery, Chinese knot work, sewing, drawing, painting, illustration, puzzles, and reading.
Favorite Movies The Mission, My Neighbor Totoro, Serenity and the Firefly series, The Big Lebowski, Open Range, Starship Troopers, Steel Magnolias, Whisper of the Heart, Cars, Sleeping Beauty, Blade Runner, and many more!
Favorite Music KT Tunstall, Allison Krauss, Rush, Feist, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Nirvana, '80s New Wave, old style Country, '90s alternative, and yes, even some DISCO!
Favorite Books Entirely too many to even attempt listing.

Never mind the turtle. Don't you think you're sure to win?
