Greetings from sunny Salinas, California, the birthplace of John Steinbeck.
After 19 years in the high school classroom, I get to be our school's librarian for the 2016/17 school year [and beyond!] And I am all in--reading and learning about what a great school library needs. Credential program is in full gear.
My husband and I have a small plot of land with 3 chickens, 3 cats, and a delightful elementary school-aged daughter.
Crafting came late to me--became interested after my first bout with colon cancer. While the doctors don't use the word "cure" with me anymore, I am learning to live and work with chronic stage IV colon cancer.
Gardening has always been a passion, although some seasons I am more successful than others [I can't always blame Mother Nature...].
I noticed many of the Digital Art Media groups were not really active, so with @Artsynerdgirl we have created Digital Art Divas. Put those mad photoshop skills to use! Come join us!
I adore all things theatre.
Love my planner. Currently, I use a Moleskine 18 month planner and am in LOVE with it. I can see myself growing quite geeky about it... The cards, post-its, washi samples and paperclips are a delight!
Love all things black. Not really morbid, as I think it's because of doing theatre for years. Jewel tones rock my world too, but sometimes I get a hankering for dusty, gritty pastels.
I have recently purchased a nifty 50 lens for my Nikon D3300. I am committed to learning all I can about shooting in manual and learning Adobe Photoshop.
Naturally, I really enjoy creating digital media--photoshop is my go-to in creating cool post and notecards.
As I delve deeper into my photo artistic life, I am using a different moniker for my photo work: salinasharpshooter. Still the same old me...just a snappier name!
We are a family of readers; nothing makes me more happy than to see my daughter and husband [and myself!] curled up in a good book. The TV stays off until the weekend and we all love it.
I love nonfiction--especially if I am starting a new project [cooking, photography, crafts, gardening]. Yet fiction also floats my boat--most genres interest me.
Our local library is super, as are the librarians. Those folks have helped us all find the fix we need for weekends, breaks, and research. Librarians rock!
I have started my documenting my book obsession on Goodreads, but confess to only rating with stars. [I am far too lazy to write up even a sentence...]
Love 'em. I like making them as much as I enjoy getting them. Especially enjoy a well-designed Zazzle one.
Here's my list of favorites, cribbed from postcardy.com
* Art Deco
* Street scenes
* Zazzle [beautifully created, naturally]
I really love to knit; once I discovered socks, I was hooked. While they may take a while, the process is very rewarding.
In between socks, I like making those nifty cotton washcloths and things that are useful yet only require one skein.
