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?
