Figured this page needed an update so, here I am, updating my About! I’ve had a wide array of interests and blogging subjects here on this old blog of mine. I took the “please Xanga, give me a WordPress account before you close down so that I can get my info and files and everything” route and here I am, a few years later, still blogging on a much better platform than I started out with. So many screen names over the years… so little time.(Boy do I actually miss the pre-Google buyout of Blogger though. I had so much fun custom writing and designing my blog codes and such. Now everything is all mobile friendly and “no you have to pay outrageous prices just to get a tiny tweek like this one single widget”. Bah! I digress…) So, on to the whole About thing.
I’m a mom and spouse. I’m a pagan. Eclectic witch, semi-self taught but always eager to learn from others whenever and however I can. Covens are fine for others, just not my cup of tea. Nothing against them, I just don’t play well with others that often. I have branched out into professional Tarot reading primarily via e-mail. And sometimes in video and voice chats.
I’ve always been fond of writing and will try my hand at most conventional arts and crafts. I’ve sold a few paintings. Sold a story. Did a bit of freelancing through Textbroker. My love of writing and of art have always been at odds with each other, but I manage to find time for most of it. I’ve even sold a pack of hand painted Christmas cards (they had adorable owls on them). And I love to find ways to recycle household items like scratched CDs, yarn scraps, and even a lonely and homeless lampshade from time to time. (My next project involves the findings and knobs on an old dresser we’re breaking down and throwing out.)
Here on this blog you’ll generally see posts about my life. It’s a sort of slice-of-life type of blog now I suppose. Occasionally I’ll post artwork, photos of food or cakes I’ve made. Maybe a short story or a video link.
The last thing I have to say is this: Never ever ever ever take your local library for granted. Aside from the free use of books, DVDs, educational materials, and all around brain candy and WiFi… You never know the sort of people you’re going to meet there. You never know if they’ll be friend, foe, or family. If not for my local library, I would never have accomplished as much in my life as I have. I certainly would not be in the most loving (yet bizarre) relationship I have ever had the pleasure of being in. And the greatest things in my life never would have happened. So remember kids… Libraries, they’re not just for old people and busy parents needing a quiet babysitter.
