About

Currently a Florida resident dreaming of colder pastures and fewer strip malls. I am a cake decorator for money, an amatuer sew-er for fun and irritation, an odd but passionate embroider-er, an avid eater and maker of intentional leftovers, and one of those people who talks to her pets but does not dress them up.
I love color and really dislike 'real jewelry'.

It was just as hard as learning to ride a bike, but there was a little less screaming.

Everything else has seemed just that much easier since then.

I love pretty things that you can wear on your neck, small enough to be practical yet loud enough to be noticed. I hope that someone other than me likes them becaue they are fun to make and force people to squint at your neck, wondering where the real jewelry is.

Someone will eventually ask you what that thing is you're wearing. Please tell them it's an excellent example of very odd embroidery. (At least there are no kittens.)

ALL HAIL THE ODDLY STITCHED JEWELRY!

Let's go ride bikes!
