More About Me

I am the wife to a wonderful man, the mother to two very rambunctious boys and two lovable dogs.  I attended art school at Syracuse University, where I had to unfortunately drop out.  I was going for my BFA with a concentration in illustration.  I ended up finishing up my BFA at the Univ of Mary Hardin Baylor with a concentration in studio arts.  I am currently a stay at home mom and a board member of my local chapter of MOMS Club.

I currently call the suburbs of Houston home.  I have also lived in Colorado and New York (state).  I love to travel, but don't do nearly enough of it.  I love to collect postcards from not only my travels, but other people's travels as well.  The top of my bucket list is to visit all 50 states.  I have 34 knocked out already.

I have a horrible memory and for that reason I am very drawn to photography.  I carry my camera with me EVERYWHERE!  I actually pick my purses to fit my camera.  I carry around a Fuji Finepix.  I have also now added a Pentax KX to my camera roster.  I carry around the Pentax more often now, but when I need something smaller I still bring my Fuji out and about.  I love my cameras and I snap pictures of anything and everything that I don't want to forget.  Sometimes it's pictures of my kids, a milestone I want to remember, just something I find to be beautiful or something I want to draw or paint and need the reference shots from.

I love art and I don't have one single favorite medium to work in.  My favorites are photography, watercolor, woodworking.  I am not afraid to try anything and you will see me trying more and more new things.  My favorite phrase is, "I could do that!"  I don't like to spend money on anything I think I could do myself.  It's a blessing and a curse! 

Feel free to ask me any questions, I am not shy about giving an answer.  I am really not shy at all and am very honest about EVERYTHING!  I don't like to sugar coat anything, unless it is a baked good.  I also love to cook and bake and have been doing more of it due to my quest to lose weight and get healthy.

I am so happy to be able to blog.  I have found that I LOVE IT!  It not only helps me keep in contact with friends and meet new creative people, but also helps me stay accountable for the things I want to do.  I feel that writing things down gives me a sense of accomplishment and a record that I can reflect back on.  This is way better than the old school journal or brag book.  I also love to be able to share myself with the world and this is a great way to do that.
