I Just Got a Nifty New Blog Award

The talented and fascinating Rhiann Wynn-Nolet just awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award! You should definitely take a peek at her blog and learn a little bit about her.

In the meanwhile, here are seven facts about me.

1.) My college job was working as a seamstress and makeup artist at the university theatre.

2.) I once had a poem critiqued (in public - eep!) by Allen Ginsberg.

3.) I used to run a small business out of my home making bridal dresses, veils and bridesmaids' dresses.

4.) I collect rocks. No really. They're all over the house. I bring them home from wherever I go and people bring them to me when they travel. One of my favorites is a piece of mortar from the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey a friend brought home to me.

5.) I was jealous of my little brother because he had an imaginary friend and I didn't. True story.

6.) I can knit - but only slippers.

7.) I collect fairy tale books - picture books, antique volumes, modern - you name it, I want it on my shelf.

Now, I'm tagging  a few awesome people for you to get to know better. Check them out!

If your name is on the list and you'd prefer not to participate, it's all good. :)


  1. Clearly you are WAY more talented with sewing crafts than I am, what a cool college job! Allen Ginsberg-wow, that must have been intimidating o_O

    1. It was *way* intimidating. Ulcer-producing intimidating!

  2. Awesome facts. I've always wanted to be able to sew...but I don't have the patience for it. I will glue gun the hell out of something though!! haha

    And I think it's really neat that you collect fairy tale books. I love looking at all the illustrations in them, they're always so pretty!! And your colllege job sounds way cooler than most jobs I've had! :)

    Congrats on the award!!

    1. Sewing's really pretty easy - especially if you think of it as putting together a puzzle made of fabric.

      The artwork in some of those books is just stunning - I could sit and look at them all day! :D
