My Bio

I have been crafting since I was a child.  When I am not enrossed in a good book, I am making something either for my Etsy shop or to give as a gift.  I tend an online bookstore called Treasure Island Books with my husband.  We specialize in quality used and out-of-print books.  My husband and I live with roughly 10,000 books in Keizer, Oregon; about half of those are our private collection.  We enjoy quick jaunts to the Oregon Coast and long road trips.  I have a weakness for cartoons, gumdrops, Edward Gorey, jazz, British comedy, blues, hazelnuts, live theatre, lighthearted mystery stories, and pretty rocks...not necessarily in that order.  I appreciate the beauty of nature in all Her forms.  I avoid pop culture whenever possible, especially sensationalized non-celebrities, whom I find absurd.  I am a political and religious skeptic, preferring to think for myself.
