I'm a SAHM of 4 wonderful and creative children. I've been married to the same wonderful man for 12 years. He is my soulmate and sanity. I was a tattoo artist for many years and it was the most fun I've ever had at work! I'm heavily tattooed and don't regret a single one. I love my family, my church and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I do not feel as though being a Christian gives me the right to be judgemental, rude, or that I'm better than anyone else. I love diversity, respect everyone's religious, political, and sexual preferences and feel that life just wouldn't be worth living without our differences.
My family and I have 4 dogs, Cidney, Georgia, Shirley and Rowdy. We also have 2 regular rats, Potatoe and Spike, 2 hairless rats, Milo and Otis, an albino corn snake named Cowboy, 2 bearded dragons named Sid and Nancy and a female black widow spider named Emily. One of my son's has a bahama anole named Dragon, my husband has a hognosed snake named Ben and I have a ball python "Brain" and an iguana "Darwin". These are our newest additions and Valentines Day gifts! Our newest editions in March are 2 red eared slider turtles, Tuck and Shelly, leopard and tokay geckos who are still nameless for the moment, and my son's white's tree frog named Zero Gravity.
My all time favorite book is "I Know This Much Is True" by Wally Lamb.
Other favorites are:
Anything by Clive Barker,
"The Time Travelers Wife" by Audrey Neffennegger,
Most anything in the sci-fi or horror genres.
"The Secret Life Of Bees" by Sue Monk Kidd,
"Where the Wild Things Are" by M. Sendack,
anything written or drawn by Edward Gorey or Charles Addams
The dictionary and the thesaurus. I read both when I was in the 7th grade. Man, I was such a dork! ;)
The Legend of Billy Jean (probably my all time favorite!) Would give a million hearts if I could to anyone who worked this movie into any craft!
Psycho and The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock
What Dreams May Come,
Sid and Nancy,
The Breakfast Club
Corpse Bride (Well, any Tim Burton movie really)
Batman; The Dark Knight
Passion of the Christ
just to name a small few...
I love anything artistic that I can figure out how to do. My favorites seem to be anything 3 dimentional. Sewing, sculpting, beading, collage, etc. I also love to get messy and paint! I'd love to learn to knit, felt, and use resin.
I'm okay at a lot of things but not perfect at anything!
I LOVE: The colors black, green, orange and brown.
Anything from a thrift store that is from the 60's or 70's that is puke green or mustard yellow. ;)
Rats, Manatees, Cuttle fish, sloths, all reptiles, spiders,
animal and human skulls,
purses (expecially handmade),
The true meaning of Christmas,
Halloween (my kitchen is decorated in halloween colors all year round),
anything pumpkin scented or flavored,
National Geographic magazines,
information on other religions and cultures, sharing, kind/non-judgemental people.
I REALLY DISLIKE: Not much, I'll try anything once.
