I live with my husband and my three Italian Greyhounds – Zedd, Talon, & Penny. We’ve moved a lot, but are currently located in the coastal Carolinas. Gratuitous picture of the dogs:
By day, I work for an awesome software company, as a “UX Swashbuckler”. Yes, that is my official title 🙂 It means I design and test user interfaces to make sure they are easy to use. Got my degrees to do this at Clemson University – Go Tigers!
When you don’t find me playing a board game (like Stone Age), doing something crafty (like sewing), or playing a video game (like Civ 5 or Guild Wars 2), odds are I am reading or watching some form of nerdy television, such as Doctor Who or Star Trek.
Other things you should know about me?
- My favorite My Little Pony is Fluttershy.
- I have a bit of an obsession with pajamas.
- I have a “talent” for mixing (not measuring) adult beverages.
- I would go to work in fleece-lined leggings everyday if I owned enough of them.
- One of my three dogs above is pretty much a face-hugger.
This blog began a about three years ago, as an outlet for sewing frustrations. I began sewing in August 2011. My friend Elizabeth and I undertook this journey together. Each year my blog focus adjusts slightly. These days I most frequently write about costume and cosplay sewing projects, with board game reviews about once a month. I still do everyday sewing posts, the occasional other craft or baking post, and posts related to travel or fun trips (like conventions). If you are interested in having me review a board game or a sewing pattern on this blog, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you enjoy reading about my various obsessions as much as I enjoy writing about them.
