About Me

I am a happily married, 28 year old elementary art teacher who has finally learned to embrace her slight southern drawl after 15 years in the South. I have been an avid craftsperson all my life, but spend most of my time doing fiber arts.

I LOVE (in no particular order): reading, knitting, crocheting, spinning, felt, sewing, buttons, wearing heels, embroidery, using brand new Prisma colored pencils and Sharpies, cooking/baking, UFC, hockey, milk cartons, Art-o-mat, gnomes, art nouveau, graffiti, irony, mountains, sweater weather, Catholic iconography, looking at bookshelves in magazines to see what books other people own, NYC, printmaking, folk art, Etsy, ceramics, craft shows, the color wheel

Some of my favorite artists: Andy Warhol, Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Doisneau,Tim Hawkinson, Georgia O’Keeffe, Sandy Skoglund, Edward Hopper, Pablo Picasso,

Favorite Crafts

Fibers of any kind. I spin yarn, knit, crochet, needlework, felt, sew...the list could go on and on. Most of my fiber stuff I sell so I probably won't do a lot of fiber swaps. I just recently started making ATCs and I really want to jump start my collection. I love the size of ATCs and the intimate quality they have. I also love paper, any kind, any color, texture is awesome.

Favorite Books

I love reading, so much so I started writing my own novel. Tom Robbins is awesome. I got the screen name Bonanzajellybean from 'Even Cowgirls get the Blues.' I also love Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series; she makes me want to be a bounty hunter. I don't like to admit this (but I do anyway) but I love romance novels espically the bodice ripping Regency era kind.

Favorite Television

The Office, 30 Rock, It's always Sunny in Philladelphia, White Collar, True Blood

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of rock: indy, blues, metal, experimental, classic. I repecially love collecting music on vinyl, long live the record player!

Currently Listening to: MGMT, Black Keys, the Killers, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Passion Pit, Mat and Kim, The National, Frightened Rabbit, Mew, Spoon, Japandroids, Dead Weather, Nirvana, The New Pornographers, Black Lips, The Velvet Underground, The Raconteurs, Blondie

just random...

I do not own a cell phone. I do not text message, tweet, facebook, myspace, or use any other social network. You won't find me, I will find you. I like anonymity.

I just invited you to be a member of Classroom ATC. Have you ever thought it would be fun to have you kids trade art with other students from around the world. I'm an art teacher from Minnesota, USA and I want to do a ATC trade with other art teachers so we can have a professional conversation to see if Swap-bot might assist in Classroom ATC Trades. Join our swap and group if you want to learn more.
