Carolyn Somes' Profile

About

Hi!
I'm Carolyn. This is my second shop on Etsy. {Noun} Masks is my li'l baby, and I am working hard to nurture her into a full fledged business.

I come from a family of artists and imaginators. Let me tell you a story,

Once upon a time and still upon this earth, there was/is a girl who is related to me but who shall remain anonymous, let's call her Margaret. She went on a hiking trip with a few friends, and upon finding a suitable tent spot, began preparing their dinners. Sitting next to our ingenue was a bag of uncooked pinto beans. Ariel, a close friend of Margaret's asked, "Pass the pintos, please." Upon hearing this phrase, Margaret sat up with a keen look to her eye and exclaimed, "What?! Are we speaking in codes?! I'll be the Painted Mask!"

An eerie silence…

An eerie silence ensued. Ariel then replied, quite befuddled, "No, the beans.... Can you pass the beans, Margaret?"

This example of readiness, and creativity is something that drives our family quite close to the brink of genius/insanity. Were it not for my insurmountable absent mindedness, I might have remembered this story in time to name my shop after The Painted Mask. *sigh*
Anyway, I thought you should know who you are dealing with.


Love your imagination.

Love,
Carolyn
