Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I grew up in New Hampshire, spending a lot of time on the southern coast of Maine as well.  I love things that remind me of the coast and beaches, since until 07 I have always lived within an hour or so drive from salt water.  I relocated to the interior of Alaska as something different in my life, after visiting over Thanksgiving.   I found I love the closer feeling of community up here and living so far from the usual urban setting.  

Crafting has always been something I enjoy.  Its one of the few more typically feminine hobbies of mine.  Other than various crafts I spend my time playing paintball (weather permitting) or working on paintball guns.  I also love hunting and target shooting.  Some time Id love to learn about taxidermy as well.  During the summer I tend to spend as much time as I can out to enjoy the midnight sun, and unless its a rainy or really smoky day I tend to put most projects on the backburner.  

A few of my favorite crafts are things my mother taught me that she learned from a pair of older French Canadian ladies who lived down the street from her when she was young- specifically crochet and knitting.  I was also very lucky to learn about rug hooking from my mother and a few of her friends.  Other crafts I have just picked up along the way.  

I think that pretty much wraps it up.  Always feel free to drop me a line!  Id love to chat.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: cross stitch, beading, knitting, rug hooking, crochet, fur sewing, sewing, some plushie making
Crafts I Want To Learn: french beaded flowers, quilting, felting, weaving, spinning, basket making, wood crafting
