About Me

I’ve been declared ‘too creative for my own good’ by more than one friend. I even had a friend shorten it to TCFYOG that he turned into an adjective.

This isn’t far from the truth — I have never met a craft that I didn’t like.  My muse is named Emily and I often suspect that she drinks more caffeine than the entire student population at Penn State University.  She likes to come up with clever ideas at times when every sane person is asleep.


I know how to



 Cross stitch



 Spin wool into yarn

 Play with beads on a loom

 Play with beads and wire

 Fold origami

 Etch glass



In my other life, I work as an elementary teacher where I teach reading. I also read any book that doesn’t run away quickly enough and occasionally delve into writing experiments myself.
