I am rather a love all of crafts. I've done scrapbooking, lampwork bead making, assemblage, altered art, drawing, tattoos, pen and ink, pastel, ATCs, acrylic and watercolor, leather work, costuming, jewelry making, cards, photography and just recently bought a screen printing kit.
I enjoy hodge podge blending of different musical elements. Love cultural New Age and Folk blends. Love Blues. I grew Punk and lived on Industrial Rock in high school. Eventually fell into Electronica and presently enjoy a mix of House, Trap and Dubstep in addition to Delta Blues, Electronica and cultural music. I am open to most genres except Rap and Hiphop though I am very much a Ruary fan at the moment. That kid is the exception!
I love books! I think my fav. books would have to be the Tao Te Ching and the Book of Hopi, Man's Search for Meaning. I do a lot of reading on Celtic History so there is an extended list there along with many philosophy books from Plato and Netzche. I am presently reading Vegetable, Animal, Miracle. Awesome book. Really getting into Curio Wonder Cabinet's so vintage nature study books are awesome- typcially those with prints. I also enjoy many ancient history cultures in addition to Celtic like Egyptian, Roman, Native American, Viking, Chinese, ect. Theology.
Well, there's allot to me:
I am a single mom with 3 boys who lives in a historic home in a small town. We tend to be doers and it's my mission to introduce my kids to the world one outing and one museum at a time. Our interests have no bounds.
I am presently an archaeological field tech working on a base for the US gov. attempting to assist in the preservation of their prehistoric and historical sites before they are lost to development.
I love collecting from the Victorian and Art Nouveau periods and my house is a tribute to those periods in addition to my love of curiosity cabinets.
I am a big big researcher and have amassed a very extensive library with focuses on Native American, Roman, and Celtic history in addition to philosophy, theology and art history. My research papers are published on Academia.edu with subjects covering Celtic foods, beads and costume which supports my historical reenactment as a 500 BC Celtic persona.
I collect antique apothocary pre-1930s. Love quackery. I also LOVE ephemera and old books and have a massive collection of these things as well. Enjoy the anthropological understanding of how other times and cultures viewed and handled death so subjects like Victorian mourning photography and burial costumes interest me.
I metal detect and hunt arrow heads (mainly work related at this point). Love photography for which my middle child has excelled and started me on. My collection of subjects in this field tend to lean towards nature and dystopia.
I am a avid jewelry craft combining natural, cultural and historical elements into statement and treasure necklaces and bracelets that reflect my vast interests. Check out my store.

II do actually do have some dislikes: Disney
Plastic unless its vintage or having to do with scrap booking. This includes beads and jewelry.
Famous people- don't care about them except the occasional movie.
Sewing, knitting, needle work- I love receiving but don't do any of them myself unless it's historical costuming.
Barbie- I hate her. She sucks as a role model and that goes for all the other dolls similar to her now. I've never been a fan of dolls unless it's frozen charlotte dolls or vintage china dolls.
Romance Novels, Girly and Beauty Mags. I suspect Martha might be my exception. She has a few cute things in hers.
Make up and beauty, clothes shopping, most girly stuff. I am a tom boy and would rather be out hiking than shopping. It's just not me.
Mean people. I don’t understand why or how folks can be mean, rude or uncaring.
