Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I am a senior undergraduate student in psychology at UW-Madison, hoping to going in to Human Sexuality research after eventually gaining my PhD. In fact, this year I am conducting research on positive messages in sexuality education for my Senior Thesis.
My fiance, Derek, is studying Medical Microbiology and Immunology, and together we form an extremely nerdy super couple. Around our apartment you will find craft supplies strewn everywhere, thirteen various video consoles, countless dvds, and all sorts of nerdy odds and ends. Along with our albino hedgehog Carlton, we form a very goofy family.
The women of my family are my main reason for my love of crafting, and for me finding my way to craftster. Almost every craft I learned from these women, and they teach me more every time I see them. To me, crafting is a way of life and I do it because I take so much pride in seeing what my own hands can do. Jewelry is probably my most developed skill, and for that reason I sell my pieces on Etsy. However, I am unable to settle on one craft as my "thing" and am constantly yearning to learn all the different skills everyone displays here on craftster.
I am currently collecting white doilies and clear/silver rhinestone brooches for my DIY wedding. Anyone have some you don't want, let me know! I'd be happy to trade crafty things/ supplies!
