My name is Julie. I live in Eastern Virginia with my husband, my two kids, and my cat and my dog. I have a passion for creating. If I can end the day with a product that I can point to and say, “I did that.” it is a good day.
I have a master’s degree in Marine Science and worked as a geneticist in a aquaculture pathology lab for five years and was very happy. (Science fulfills the creative urge… when it works). My current job of part time instructor for the local community college, while rewarding in its own way, doesn’t. So I craft… compulsively, and with a short attention span, hence the name of the blog.
My current hobbies include, but are not limited to: spinning, knitting, crocheting, tatting, netting, felting, wire weaving, 3D graphics, digital graphics, photography, cooking, baking, brewing (mead), cheese making, beading, silk painting, gardening, basketry, and dyeing. I’m sure I’ll think of a few more as soon as I post this.
I hope that you enjoy your trip around my blog.
