I’m not perfect. If I was there wouldn’t be anything interesting to talk about. I’ve always enjoyed telling tall-tales, stories, sharing (you know, gossiping), cooking, eating, more eating and cooking (and eating), and spending time with others that enjoy doing the same.
When I’m not cooking or getting creative, I’m busy working on Native content for POPSUGAR.
My turkey tortilla sushi recipe got me to the final three in a Hidden Valley Ranch/Food Network competition (but I didn’t win…), BBC Food liked my mango lemon marmalade enough to highlight it, and Oprah thinks my outdoor teepee is great outdoor fun for families.
I’ve also been on national TV. Seriously.
My real stats:
I am a teacher at heart and have a degree in Art Education with over 10 years of teaching experience. I was that preschool teacher that told you what was up with your kid (whether you liked it or not) and the art teacher that had students do the super-messiest projects in high school – and also encouraged them to think outside the box.
I’m a bit chaotic, foul-mouthed at times, enjoy having a good time, and love chocolate. Seriously. I love chocolate.
Along with being a parent, I am ceramic artist, wife to a photographer, daughter to awesome parents, and sister to an amazing woman.
Here’s a recent picture so you can decide how you REALLY feel about me:
*AND, just so you know, this blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. I do (from time to time) accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions (blog/twitter/facebook) or other forms of compensation. Hey, I’ve got to pay the bills, and I’d prefer NOT to have flashing advertisements on my site. If you’d like me to write something about you, send me an email. Or, feel free to email me with any questions. And, if a post HAS been paid for, I share my own thoughts, ideas, and comments/suggestions. For real.
*OH, also – unless I state differently, these are MY ideas, recipes, and crafts. So, if you want to use them for your own promotion/monetary benefit, you better talk with me first (otherwise I’ll find you and hit you with my wooden spoon)!
