About

I never know what to write for these things...
Hello, my name is Lisa. I'm 25 with a crafting addiction. I have been craft-sober for 0 days and I don't intend to become craft-sober anytime soon! =^_^=

I used to be a beading/jewelry instructor at Michael's Craft Store. I am currently studying Anthropology at University. As of this year I think I have fallen in love with Medieval Archaeology. I have the pleasure of living near an Amish community to the north, and next to/on a Native American Reservation which fueled my interest in cultural craft. I am half Japanese, half American.

Some things I like. In no particular order.
My Cat (Muta). Doctor Who. Natural/Neutral/Earth tones. Jewelry. Tiny versions of things (pans, veggies, fruits, etc. I think they are cute). Fiona Apple (musician). Sherlock Holmes. Old Technology. Steampunk. Recycling. Ukiyo-e (Japanese wood block print; the most famous is The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai). Cultural crafts. Geek Craft, D.I.Y. Building furniture/storage. Nature/Outdoors. Cute things. Funny things. Books/Reading. Yarncraft (knitting and crochet). Fabric. Haruki Murakami (author). Hemp. Local craft stores. Daria. Yoda. Animals (especially dogs, cats, hedgehogs, humming birds, chinchillas, gorillas and so many more). Stones/Rocks/Minerals/Fossils, Grey's Anatomy. LoTR. Mouth of Sauron. Flapjack (the cartoon). Adventure Time. Mirror Mask (movie). Cooking. Baking. Professor Layton. Super Nintendo. And so so much more.

I love birds. Any and all birds. This I get from my Grandpa (he loves birds) who has always supported my creative endeavors. He is also a creative person.

If there is anything you want to know just ask and I'd be happy to reply. :)

Yes, because apples definately live in the winter, I thought that they grew fur coats and hibernated through most of Dec.-Feb. Huh, I guess they just go and have their humans make them cozies. It's like the evolution of apples.
