My name is Michelle. I am 31 years old, and live in Tacoma, WA with my husband, cat Ridley, and dogs Otto and Diego.
I am an architect, and I am really interested in the structures around us, both man-made and natural.
In my free time, I enjoy creating things in many different medias: drawing, painting, collaging, knitting, sewing, jewelry design, digital design, cooking and baking. I am an artist at heart, but definitely need some development.
I also like spending time in nature. On weekends, we go for hikes in different parks, to see all wonderful things that Washington State has to offer. I also have adopted 80+ houseplants that keeps the outdoors around me in my home at all times.
I never intend on flaking, so if something does not arrive, please let me know before rating me poorly! I am more than willing to resend if necessary!
Don't be a stranger :)
I've been really into ATCs lately. I love restricting yourself to such a small canvas to make a work of art, and I love looking back on ATCs that I've received and the different techniques used.
I gravitate towards mixed media art and collaging. I also enjoy drawing, mostly with ink and marker, and painting.
I used to be big on knitting and jewelry design, but haven't had the time to pick that up.
I want to start doing rock painting. I've seen photos of people's inspirational rock gardens, with quotes for people to take, and it seems like such a wonderful and positive idea. I want to create a bunch and make my own inspiration rock garden in my neighborhood.
I have recently started reading a lot more than I used to. There are a lot of books on my "To Read" list that I have not gotten around to reading. I really enjoy futuristic books, especially those depicting dystopian futures. I also enjoy self-improvement books, classic works and poetry.
I don't watch a lot of television. But I tend to migrate towards comedy and dramas. My favorite show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer (on my 4th time watching the series now). Coming in a close second is "Tim and Eric Awesome Show," mostly because the offbeat humor makes it so great.
Some other shows I love:
I like a little bit of every genre of music. I grew up listening to 60's and 70's oldies, country and classic rock. In addition to that, I frequently listen to modern rock, postmodern hardcore, metal, hip hop and rap, acoustic, folk, pop and instrumental. I am always broadening my horizons in music that I listen to.
I collect the following things:
Rewards stickers, kids items (no kids in my house), glitter or glittery items, food, scented items, beauty products, religious items, political items, disney
