Howdy all, I'm SarahIvy, I found my way to this fun idea from Kristina's post on the LOCI board.
Hrmmm, about me. Let's see, left the city a few years ago with my husband to start up a little homestead and live a more sustainable lifestyle. We have a small acreage in the woods of Oregon, and tons of animals....dogs, cat (or monkey/dog/panda hybrid, we're not sure), chickens and goats, an orchard and a big organic garden.
I craft for a living, and generally think of myself as an artisan, rather than an artist ("artist" gives me way too many flashbacks of my ealier life as an angsty art school dropout :P ). I dye and spin yarn, which started as a charming homestead hobby and sort of tumbled into a full on home business that allowed me to quit my library job.
Other than all the spinning, I crochet, knit very poorly, make goofy vintage jewelry, draw, paint, am theoretically teaching myself to sew, and so on and so forth. I'm easily distracted by shiny objects and vintage goodness so I tend to have a new hobby to explore every couple of months.
As for L&O, well I started watching when the original started. Back when I was a 12 year old with somewhat odd taste in television for my age. Anyhoo, I've watched all the spinoffs, though my relationship with SVU has grown rather cold and disallusioned. Criminal Intent is my favorite, with Mothership reruns in a close second.
Of course the myriad reruns keep me crafting happily on a daily basis. I like to joke that I'm "in my office"...which means I'm at my spinning wheel in front of an L&O rerun. ;)
I'm looking forward to seeing how this blog develops and what fabulous creative things everyone does!
