About Me

Update 9/19: Life takes an interesting turn. More info at my blog: http://frostblossoms.blogspot.com.

10/7: Surgery went fine. I'm recovering. I'm sorry I haven't been functioning at my best, so if I owe you something and you haven't heard from me, please get in touch. And please rate fairly: If you haven't received, I deserve a 1. If I'm terribly late, I deserve a 3. It's what I would expect and what is fair to other users.


I'm a Georgia girl living in Alaska since 1994. I have quite a menagerie... chickens, pheasants, geese, guinea fowl, cockatiels, finches, a husky and a cat. I used to be a writer; now I make silver and copper jewelry for a living. Lately, all I want to do is knit.

I love birds (well, that's obvious), leaves, silence, Zuni fetishes, low bush cranberries, sea kayaking (tho not in years), little rocks, odds and ends.

I usually say teal and purple are my favorite colors, but my REAL favorite is the combination of sky blue and sunny yellow. I've surrounded myself with celadon green walls, and I'm suddenly attracted by splashes of orange. What color isn't gorgeous in the right place?


Swaps I'm currently hosting:

[Please contact me if you don't receive something in what seems a reasonable time. Although Alaska is in the U.S., we're a long way from the rest of y'all. And sometimes it seems that the mail goes by dogsled.]

Currently listening to: Dead Can Dance, Widespread Panic, Los Lonely Boys, Talking Heads, Marshall Tucker Band

Favorite Movies

Favorite Television

Crossing Jordan, Antiques Roadshow, As Time Goes By, Absolutely Fabulous, Foyle's War... Not a big TV fan. Frankly, it drives me nuts, as my mate has it on all the time.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, handweaving, and of course, silversmithing.

Comment: Thanks so much for your photo postcard of a sunflower in your garden. I love them too! Unfortunately, the squirrels bite the heads off and run away with them, before the seed are ripe.

Hope you are fit and well again.

lulu on Sep 17, 2007:

When I did my degree, I took geography as my second subject which included Alaska. From that, I always had a desire to see Alaska as it seemed to me to be an incredible place. Thank you for the lovely postcard. You live in a wonderful place.

emeritus on Aug 6, 2007:

It's true! When I was a child, I lived near a volcano --- the one you saw in the postcard. 'Care to guess again? :)

Suzanne on Jul 27, 2007:

Correct! We did not elope nor did we tell people we went to a baseball game. We actually went to a baseball game instead.

LOLA on Jul 16, 2007:

Kristin thank you for the extra nice comments. It is so nice to swap with someone as gracious and appreciative as yourself. FYI I have had those days too and it always amazes me what ends up turning those days around. I really hope to trade with you again sometime. Thanks again for your generous comments and extra heart! High Fives and lots of smiles! Lola

VJP on Jul 11, 2007:

She's a very talented silversmith and a very generous person. Swapping with Summerlion has been a great experience and I consider myself lucky to have met her.
