I'm 43 yrs old and blessed with a wonderful husband of 13+ years and the best 13 yr. old boy anyone could ever want. I live in a beautiful city in Newfoundland, Canada where I have been designing, building, and teaching costumes in a university theatre dept. since 1989. I volunteer for a number of organizations and believe that everyone has something to offer. I particularly enjoy working with children and have taught children's sewing and craft courses in the past(hopefully I can do it again sometime soon). I'm hoping to start a "Project Linus" chapter in my area this fall.
I am fascinated by fairies, turtles, frogs and just about anything vintage.
My favorite colours are blue, green, pink and silver. I enjoy most scents but I prefer softer ones like vanilla, as stronger smells sometimes make me sick, especially strong floral scents. I collect: turtles, thimbles, dolls, fairies and interesting sewing stuff. I have more crafting supplies in my basement than alot of craft stores, I'm a pack-rat and a sucker for the clearance shelf in the craft department. I love swap-bot for getting me off my butt and using it.
I have very ecclectic tastes in music. I enjoy: Accapella groups, Contemporary Christian, Broadway/Show musicals(especially fun and upbeat shows), Nickelback, Contemporary Country and good Folk music etc.. I"m not fond of Rap, Heavy Metal, most Opera and classical music.
I mostly enjoy Action, Thrillers(not horror)and Fun movies. Some Of my favourite movies are: Labyrinth, Narnia(the new one), The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, The Dark Crystal, The Harry Potter series, My Cousin Vinny, most of the Pixar animated movies and the Pirates of the Carribbean series
I really like to watch; Ghost whisperer, Jericho, Criminal Minds, CSI, and Law and Order SVU. When I have the time, I also watch; House, Grey's Anatomy, and Mythbusters( my son's favorite)
I love to learn new arts and crafts, so my favourites change frequently, if indeed I have any. I enjoy paper folding and construction, millinery(hatmaking and decoration), doll and toy making, recycled and children's crafts, and lately I have been very interested in puppet building and fabric collage. If I see it, I will try it. That reminds me I have a bobbin lace kit downstairs should try that soon.

His favorite authors are: Anne Tyler,and Shakespeare. He volunteers for a number of non-profit organizations especially those that help children.We have been together for 18+ wonderful years and married for 13+ years. We have a fabulous 13 yr. son who is our pride and joy.
