The Compulsory Introduction

I'm turning 30 soon, but feel much younger! I sew and crochet quite a bit, but I'm interested in a huge variety of crafts. I've made soap from fats and lye, made cheese, and body scrubs. I have a huge list of things I want to try.

My life's been a bit boring lately - I work full time, have my crafts to keep me busy, and am starting school again.

I'm a former Marine, and I used to love the club scene. I've gone white water rafting, sky diving, cliff diving, and scuba diving. I was stationed in Okinawa, and loved it! I want to go back to Japan someday, preferably spend a year or two there. My interests are more mundane now - finances and being married cuts into the crazy fun life. I've filled that need for something new by making things.

I have ADD, so I have a lot of unfiinished projects and a really dirty, half-painted house. I'm gradually forcing myself to get better about that.

I love all sorts of international cuisine - and I love to cook everything from homemade bread and biscuits to Indian or Japanese style curry. I'll post pics and recipes. ;O)

That's me in a nutshell!
