I usually post six days a week on average. Nothing outstanding, just a daily personal blog. I am a shop owner, owning a craft supply shop in St Paul, Minnesota. I have been married for more than 30 years to my resident Naugrim and I am a beta reader and avid fan of Tolkienesque fanfic stories. I am an artist working in pencil, paint, beads, metals and enamels. I never seem to have enough time for my artwork, but the little that I do keeps me happy and sane. Friend me if you dare - although you're more likely to die of boredom than from the excitement of something that I say or do.
