I bought a house in December 2008 and since then I have personally fixed every toilet in the house. Need your fill valve replaced? I am your gal.
As a new homeowner, I love that the spare room is the STUDIO. How sweet is that? I filled it full of craft stuff, too, ahahaha.
In fact, one wall of that room is the Yarn Wall: an Expedit bookshelf from Ikea filled to the brim with sock yarn and knitting books:
Besides knitting, I also crochet and weave.
I actually really love weaving, and hope to do a lot more of it in the future.
I like photography a lot, and I’m a sucker for a good macro setting.
I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Drawing. I also studied computer graphics and book binding rather intensively.
The book binding TA looked like Jude Law. I swear it.
I lived in Texas for five years, where I met some of the best people anyone could ever hope to know – good friends Julie, Tara, Cindy, Daphne and MORE. Seriously, Texas people are the best in the land!
Not that I don’t love my California friends. Holla, Malv, Sarah, etc.!
My current favorite TV shows are Dexter and True Blood. I apparently like the blood and guts.
Speaking of blood and guts, my favorite channel is ID or Investigation Discovery, which is all crime documentary all the time.
I have DirecTV and I LOVE IT.
I finally got a Wii this year. I’m allowed one stupid expensive toy a year, and so this year it was a Wii. (Last year was my loom.)
My sister Abby quilts like a champ, and made the quilt that is on my bed. Colors of the ocean, woo hoo!
I have a strange fascination with little people.
I hate unloading the dishwasher with a passion exceeded only by my
EVERLASTING HATRED OF THE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND.
Bugs don’t bother me. I was cured of any bug issues when I lived in Texas – I mean… the cockroaches can FLY, people! They totally don’t here in California.
I am unashamed to admit that my favorite band is Coldplay.
I also love Travis, Death Cab, Keane, The Rasmus, Imogen Heap, Delerium, Matthew Sweet, etc.
I love all of Jim Butcher’s books (Codex Alera and Dresden Files)
I love vintage style stuff.
Except for rings and a few select bracelets, I only wear jewelry that I’ve made.
I work primarily in mixed media (chain, stone, glass, etc.)
My favorite beer is Dos Equis.
I don’t like wearing nail polish on my fingernails, but I like it on my toes.
I’ve never had a pedicure, and I feel like I’m really missing out.
I really like the Lord of Rings movies but I can’t get into the books (go figure).
I do not approve of fanfic (but can’t really hold it against the people who do, you know?)
I do heart money.
I love going to the library.
I finally got a passport and am hardcore excited about flinging myself all around the world. (Watch out, the South Pacific! :P)
My ears are triple pierced.
I like zombies a little more than necessary.
I like robots a lot, too.
District 9 is an excellent movie, everyone should go see it.
I want a cupcake.
I have a newly discovered love of Thai food. Mmmmm, yummmm.
