about me

Here is what you need to know about me.

Where I live:

I live just outside Washington DC in Woodbridge, VA.  I grew up in this area, so I was really excited that the Army sent us back here in the summer of 2009.

What I do for work:

After teaching English at the college level for the last 12 years, I have recently moved into technical writing and design work for private industry.  While I am still teaching, I love the work I am doing now as well.

What I like to do for fun:

I read a ton of blogs everyday, and I gain so much information from the others in the online diy/crafting community.  I also have a dream to someday open the ultimate crafting store.  It would be an amazing place!

I love to sew.  I am completely self-taught, and that shows on some projects more than others.  I don’t really like patterns and use what other people have done as ideas for my own stuff. In addition to sewing, I am a closet scrapbooker and jewelry maker.  And, I would love to learn how to make lampwork beads.

I also love to work on projects for our home and spending time with friends and family.
