WHO I AM
Like many people, I’m a spouse, I’m a parent, I’m a sister, I’m an aunt...I try to be a friend. I sometimes have a lot to deal with...sometimes not too much. I like the not too much times best.
I wish for a lot of things. I wish for less hate. I wish for more happy.
I wish I was a great illustrator and a more patient person.
I would be happy living in a hut on the sand in front of a clear blue ocean for the rest of my life...I try not to let it get me down that I’m not currently doing that.
Who I,mostly, am is just this kid (in a 37 year old body) who likes to make stuff...and fool around until I figure out how to do things.
*I have as many failures as I have successes...and I’m learning to be okay with that.*
WHY I WRITE STUFF DOWN
My kids are always asking for me to “tell me something about when I was a baby”. I think that’s a pretty good reason to write things down. Fortunately, we live in this digital age...where writing things down is as simple as clicking keys on a keyboard. I want to be able to answer that question no matter how old I am.
AND WHY I WRITE LIKE I DO
so...sometimes I have typos...and I use a lot of dot, dot, dots...why? Because I’m writing and I’m thinking and I’m talking and I’m listening...it’s just how it goes...love it or hate it, it probably won’t change any time soon.
MISSION STATEMENT…OF SORTS
My grandmother is a pretty fantastic artist. I can remember being a little kid in complete awe of the amazing things she could ‘draw and color’. Some of the best times of my life have revolved around learning and creating. I’ve never excelled at one particular art form...so have made it my life’s goal *to try as many as I possibly can.*
REAL LIFE STUFF
My sweet husband, our three kiddos & two old dogs all live together in a little house in a little town in the middle of Washington State...where it doesn’t rain all that often.
