|Seán, Zara, and I in front of Ross Castle on a trip to Ireland.|
Hi, all! Welcome to my little chunk of the blogosphere. My name is Tabitha. I used to be a graphics artist, but since becoming a stay-at-home-mom in 2009, I have rediscovered my love of crafting and have discovered a passion for baking.
My mother, who is an excellent cook and can sew beautifully, tried her best to teach me everything she knows when I was growing up. Wow, I wish I had paid attention! Now I'm convinced my sewing machine wants to eat my fingers.
I have a fabulous daughter named Zara and a wonderfully supportive husband named Seán. Seán, the smartest man I've ever met and an amazing writer, does some editing on this blog. If you notice a mistake (probably grammatical), it was most likely because I didn't listen to his advice.
My work process is a bit less than ideal. I tend to have several projects going at one time, my desk is always a wreck, and I can be a bit lazy about posting. Ordinarily, I'm very organized, but when it comes to crafting, it's hard for me to get it together. I do make sure I'm having fun the whole time. While crafting I have my iPod turned way up, singing my head off, knocking back can after can of Diet Pepsi, and munching on Turtle Chex Mix. It's my own little party. Crafting and blogging are done while Zara's sleeping. Can't have her around all the pointy, burning, acidy, gluey things. I wouldn't want to have to explain all that to her doctor.
I love to read anything I can get my hands on. I love shopping, visiting museums, and trying out new restaurants. I spend way too much time watching tv and reading blogs. I feel the most peaceful in craft stores and book stores. I have three cats who annoy me constantly, but are too cute to stay mad at for very long.
That's me in a nutshell. If there's anything else you want to know, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment. Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you visit again soon.
