My Goodreads Profile
I'm a mom of two girls (ages 4 and 5 just 14 months apart) I also have a maine coon cat named mittens. I live in a small town in Pennsylvania. I used to be a network administrator and I adore all computer geekery. (I hail back to the BBS days!)
Bookworm might be an understatement with how much I read.
I mostly read Fantasy with a bit of Scifi and non fiction on the side.
I'm always looking for book suggestions!
I've been addicted to an online game called Everquest since 1999! I play a gnome enchanter, a high elf cleric, and an iksar necro.
I mostly make things for my girls. Hair clips, felt dolls, felt crowns, stuffed toys. I'm learning slowly how to use a sewing machine but I mostly hand sew for now. I also love to make them clip on earrings and other jewelry. Before having kids I knit occasionally and liked to make hand made greeting cards.
The past couple of years I've been making things from wood! I still don't enjoy the noise a saw makes, but making my own raised garden beds, a stand for my front loading washer and dryer, and a dress up chest for my girls makes the noise worth it :)
I enjoy drinking tea and listening to music while I craft or color. I'm so happy for the sudden influx of adult coloring books the past few years! I mostly listen to alternative music from the 90's with the occasional emo band thrown in.
I hope to try my hand at some ATC's soon, I used to love to paint and now that my kids are getting a bit older I'm hoping to find the time again soon.
I'm heading back to college to switch from being a network administrator to an elementary school teacher. It wasn't until I started homeschooling my own kids that I realized how much I enjoy seeing little faces learn. I'm excited and scared to be a veeerrryyy old adult learner next semester!
