I am 46 years old. I have three grown children and two granddaughters. :) I am an office manager at a gun range. I am currently working in acrylics, but the pencil and ink are my favorites. Fall is my favorite season. Being underneath a canopy of trees by water is my soul's rest.
I like a wierd and wild variety of music. I like 70's and 80's country because that is what I was raised up listening to, some 80's british pop, orchestral scores from movies and new age music for when I'm reading. I like E.S. Posthumus, Dead can Dance, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Rob Dougan, Hans Zimmer and Danny Elfman. 16 Bit Lolitas, Taliesin Orchestra, Conjure One, Balligomingo, FrouFrou and Trifonic are my absolute favs. My tastes are as wide as anywhere from Wille Nelson to Enya.
Historical fiction is my favorite. I do not like to read anything from the present time. I read books to transport me from this time period to another that I find more interesting.
Gladiator, Lord of the Rings, Hot Rod, Star Trek (all) and Sabrina.
My favorite actress is Rachel Weiss. She played in the Mummy 1 & 2 and Dreamhouse. I like Julia Louis-Dreyfus as well. She played the bungling divorcee` in the New Adventures of Old Christine. That personality pretty much represents mine. Yeah, pretty sad, right?
My favorite actor is Marton Csokas. Not only is he a wonderfully diverse and talented actor but he is the most attractive man my eyes have beheld during this lifetime. He is absolute perfection. The movies he can be seen in is Triple X with Vin Diesel, South Solitary, The Debt, Dreamhouse and a few Xena episodes.
American Pickers, History channel, Science Channel and HGTV. Documentaries on animals are always interesting. I love watching reruns of sitcoms I didn't catch when they were in prime time, like Third Rock from the Sun, Will and Grace, Supernatural, The Originals and Grimm. Little Britain and Mr Bean are my imported favorites.The Big Bang Theory is my most current like. My guilty pleasure is Project Runway. I am fascinated by anyone who can take beautiful fabric and create clothing that fits perfect on the body.
Any paper crafts and drawing. Making small plushies from material or felt. Making purses or totes,
Artist Trading Cards has been my favorite here lately but that is subject to change if something interesting comes along.
I'm trying my hand at painting. I don't know if I like it or not. I still keep taking the canvas and wanting to put papers on it, altered art always being my one line of artform.
A rare photo of me in my craft room.

I have received cards that had special notes and stickers. I wanted to say thank you to all who sent those little "extras".
I used to be an active member of the SCA, the Society for Creative Anachronism. I enjoyed the arts and sciences and dressing up most of all. It was also a great inspiration for my writing. I haven't played in years. My Mama died and I let many of the pleasurable things in life set on a shelf for awhile. I have been looking at that shelf an awful lot here lately and I do believe I might dust a few activities off and try them again.:)
