Favorite Crafts

Handmade Anything Drawing/Painting Stitching
Bags/purses/Totes Patches ATC's

I really like vintage fabrics, mushroom prints and handprinted fabric. I LOVE swaps and exchanges as a way to see all of the unique ways a single idea can be approached.

About Me

I live in Central Michigan with my two toddlers and my husband. I work as a Systems Administrator and Monitoring Tech for a large hosting company. (I am not yet disgruntled, but server monitoring is a lot like daycare)

I heart funkiness, things that are a little more counterculture. I'm extremely liberal in belief. I hate television, although I have my guilty pleasures.

As a note I'm a Bhuddist, and while not really interested in fundamentalist items from any belief, I respect that everyone has their own ideas and beliefs.

Favorite Music

bob dylan, alexi murdock, sufjan stevens, freer, lauren hill, ween, the pixies, ani difranco, tori amos, miles davis, sonic youth, the brian shram band, tool, allman brothers, garcia y grisman, the band, keith green, cj bolland, carol king, cake, janis joplin, led zepplin, 311,tom waits, blind melon, gogol bordello/gypsy punk, paul cantelon, spin doctors, rusted root, ben harper, elo, bjork, etta james, djangho rineheart, the mars volta, red hot chilli peppers, fionna apple, erykah badu, dave matthews band, john coltrane, gipsy kings, the donnas, gnarls barkely, danger doom, danger mouse, tricky, jack johnson, tonic, ratm, seth bernard, buck cherry,jamie lidell, disturbed, the black crows, bach, beethoven, pachabel, the misfits, a wee bit of glen danzig solo, toadies, toad the wet sprocket, simon and garfunkel, tripping daisy, violent femmes, janes addiction, devo, rolling stones, firewater, portishead, wire, dropkick murphy's, daft punk, johnny depp, and about a million others. I tend to dislike the radio more and more and pop princesses hurt me in my soul.

Favorite Books

Dick, She's Come Undone, Jennifer Weiner, Bangkok 8 series, Bukowski

Favorite Movies

Things I Don't Love
