Urban KC DINK, I teach English at an all-girls school. I have less time for piddling around in my art room than I would like (but don't we all). I'm just starting to get into ATCs. My husband and I love to travel and primarily that's where scrapbooking comes in. I also like to make cards, bake thriftshop and do other pseudo household goddess stuff. My aesthetic is more weird, edgy and offbeat than cutesy.We also like to run and ride bikes.
