I am an artist and retired art teacher. I have been married to may very unartistic husband for 43 years. Guess I'll keep him. I have one daughter who is also may best friend. She is an Instructional Designer for Expedia.
Lean toward mellow music...favorite James Taylor. Also enjoy musicals...Wicked being my current favorite. Really enjoy all music...least favorite would be country.
I am an avid reader. Some of my favorite authors Jonathan Kellerman, Patricia Cornwell and for laughs Evanovich. Love to read magazines especially artsty/craftsy and cooking.
Ones I can watch over and over again... You've Got Mail, Father Goose, Passion Fish, Meet Me in St. Louis...an odd assortment. My husband and I also have MoviePasses...so we see lots of movies in the theater.
Not a big watcher of regular TV. Enjoy binge watching on Nexflix and Amazon.
Love to craft. I enjoy making things for other people. I have tried every craft known and have the boxes in my art studito to prove it. I enjoy sewing and working with polymer clay. My new obsession is working with fused glass. So far I've been working on small jewelry pieces but am scheduled to take a class at a local glass studio. I take classes when I can and was lucky enough to be in classes taught by Donna Kato and Laurie Doctor. Add quilting to the list.
I like earthy colors...sage is probably my favorite. I love handmade items. Since I'm an artist/art educator, my friends seldom hand make me gifts...guess they are intimidated...though I can't see why. I have a hugh Christmas tree that I cover with ornaments...can always find room for more. I like angels and fairies. Like coffees and teas...not too particular about flavors. I make books, so I enjoy all sorts of papers and embellishments.
Not fond of cats, much prefer puppies. Overly religious items. Country and canvas crafts. I prefer simplicity to overdone. Unfortunately I am diabetic, so...even though I'd love to indulge in sugar, my doctor would appreciate it if you didn't temp me. :)
