About Me

***on 5/4/12 i was in a serious scooter accident and have been in the hospital for a week. i broke 6 ribs, my clavicle and scapula and punctured my lung i will write but it may look like a 6 year old's writing because i broke everything on my dominant side :( just fyi*****

I am a 28 year old opera singer based out of Houston, Texas. I love all things crafty. I have a 13 year old golden cocker spaniel, Remington, who is the love of my life. :0)

I'm an only child - so I love attention and being on stage (maybe that's why I'm an opera singer?) At least I recognize my faults and am willing to admit them right?

My mom (who died of breast cancer 2007) called me her Lil' Butterfly - so I LOVE anything to do with butterflies. Cards, necklaces, rings, paper, fabric etc. Love. The more unique the better. No, I don't have butterflies all over my home, just in subtle places that make me happy.

Favorite Music

My favorite music would have to be Opera #1. But that's my job. I do enjoy other types of music. My favorite group would have to be My Brightest Diamond. Their singer is classically trained and can do some wonderful things with her voice. I also enjoy oddities like Patti Plinko and her Boy. (Don't be scared away by the mask that her Boy wears in some of her videos.) I love the unique qualities of her music.

Favorite Classical Singers: Joyce DiDonato, Renata Tibaldi, Joan Sutherland, Marilyn Horne, Freni, Domingo, The Pav - etc.

I do NOT like Josh Groban or Charlotte Church or any of these "pop" opera singers. Ridiculous. No. Way.

And P.S. Phantom of the Opera is NOT an opera. :0)

Favorite Books

I am a huge Harry Potter fan! Anything with a series - I've downloaded about 5,000 books to my iPad and I am constantly reading. I do miss reading a book by turning the pages, but to be honest, I read so much more on my iPad than I ever did before.

I also enjoy biographies and historical romance. A damsel in distress always gets me!

Favorite Movies

I only have 1... The Princess Bride. The. Best. Movie. Ever.

Favorite Television

I enjoy Bones and all criminal tv shows. I'm not much into the ghost shows but a good Law and Order SVU makes me happy.

I also enjoy Parenthood and Modern Family.

Favorite Crafts

I knit, sew, crochet, cross stitch and embroider. I also love modifying children's clothing and bedazzling. Hee hee.

Favorite Color(s)

I enjoy wonderful color combinations - chocolate brown and turquoise, purple and turquoise... okay anything with turquoise? Ha!

I'm not a fan of neutrals - unless you have some major accent pieces - there better be some color somewhere!

Dislikes

I dislike anything political. I do not want/need/desire anything regarding American politics at all.

I'm not a fan of cutesie teddy bears and old floral arrangements.

I think cupcakes are overrated - I'd rather have a whole cake. :o)

Comment: Thanks for the re-send of the letter (3 times!) and the postcard. Lol! I wrote a letter back, but can't read the return address. The post office put their squiggly stamp over it. Can you send it to me in a private message?
Response: Sure!! Silly Post Office!

Comment: That's an interesting pattern and yarn too. Thank you :) Remember to tuck in your ends!
Response: Oh, sorry about the ends... I like leaving the ends myself so that you perhaps could use the extra yarn to attach with later... :0)

Iยดve got your postcard yesterday :) Thank you so much, I was really surprised. I love surprises :)

BTW, I visited your website. Really impressing you are an opera singer.

BassClarinetNerd on Feb 14, 2012:

I just recently started listening to My Brightest Diamond. Mostly, I'm in love with the bass clarinet. I've played bass clarinet for several years now and I've never seen one outside of the concert band/symphony/classical quartet. Maybe I can be a famous bass clarinet player after all!
