I'm a traveling bohemian gypsy at heart, although lately I have found a temporary home in Branson Missouri. My dream is to find a piece of land to put down my roots, build homes out of dirt for my family and friends, and raise all of my own food. Then I'll invite everyone I meet to join us in our grassroots community!
Every natural thing about this world is absolutely incredible to me and is an inspiration to step lightly upon the earth. I learn from my pagan ancestors through stories, books, and recipes.
My garden is my very favorite hobby. Spending time with the plants that I have started from seed and watching them grow, guiding them at times, and creating a safe haven for so many critters! It's so much more than a craft...
I love to crochet all kinds of garments and accessories and my favorite yarns are alpaca wool, sheep wool, organic cotton, and bamboo.
Painting was my first love and I still love spending time with my paint brushes. Recently I have started painting on locally sourced wood which is so nice to work with. :)

Mmmm la da da I love music. I love to sing the blues, reggae, folk, and I'm getting into singing some jazz tunes as well. I play the ukulele more than other instruments but also mess around with the banjo, harmonica, bongos, and keyboard now and then. My boyfriend and I sort of have a band, but I'm a bit self conscious so it's an off and on kinda thing.. We play bluegrass / folk / reggae / blues ... haha anything we're feeling!
I love Bob Marley and Nina Simone, Rising Appalachia, Bob Dylan, Elephant Revival, Creedence Clearwater Revival... I could go on for a long time. I love music. :)

Not very girly, but I don't mind a little pink.
