Laura's Profile

About

So, a little bit about me: My name is Laura Gibson and I am a full time metalsmith from Austin Texas. I graduated with a BFA in studio art in 1998. I know my parents are still in shock that I actually use my degree. You can read about the day to day goings on over at http://metalsgirl.blogspot.com/

I never cease to be amazed at how lucky I am. I am living my dream life. I do a job that I love everyday and actually make a living at it. I have a wonderful husband of eleven years who I absolutely adore! We have two kookie cats (Daisy and Birketu aka Berklie) and 12 crazy dogs (Seven, Preacher, Ozo, Clarence, Pasqual, Vincent, Monkey, Clishy Marie, Veruca Jane, Horatio, The Business Man, and J.B.

My parents and my little brother live just a few blocks away and I get to spend lots of time with them. My mom even works for me two days a week. I have the same best friend that I have had since the first grade and I couldn't live with out her. My extended family and small group of friends are the best anyone could ask for.

I love watching tv - even though I know it's much more popular to say you hate tv. But I adore magnum pi and old perry mason and murder she wrote. I love going to have queso and margaritas with my friends on Sundays. I love going to New York City with my husband and pretending we live there. And I love playing silly games with my dogs and having full on conversations with them where they actually talk! :) I'm telling you, it is THE BEST life!

Unfortunately the herbs don't smell, they are all sealed up in the resin so no yummy clove scent!
