I have been an avid crafter and gardener for most of my adult life. I have to create to be happy--the two go hand in hand for me. I am also an avid life-long learner, always collecting information on whatever interests me. I love the Internet because it is like having one never ending, always changing, giant encyclopedia set that includes something about everything you could possibly want to know. Despite that, I have a monster collection of books...I just love the written word, I guess.
I moved to rural New Mexico in 2009 after marrying my soul mate, who had always had a dream of living in New Mexico. I currently work for a state agency as LMS system admin, Access database designer and admin and elearning developer. I am a geek and love it.
