What can I say? I'm a transplanted New Orleanian, then a transplanted Texan. At heart, I'm an Alabama girl. I've been with my wonderful husband, Scott, since 1991 and married to him since 1995. We have dizygotic (fraternal for those of you not 'in the multiples know') twin boys, Michael and Matthew, born in April of 2001. My current career is with web strategy, most recently for Sun Microsystems. In July 2005, I graduated from University of Phoenix with my business degree, after attending Auburn University for visual arts and art history 'way back when' in the late 80's - early 90's. Generally, I enjoy reading, crafts of all kinds, buying things for my boys to see their faces light up, Kokuro, working puzzles, knitting, painting, constantly learning, teaching others, actually getting a good night's rest and living a totally full and stressed life :) My favorite release is drinking and shopping with friends.
I am a Southern Living independent consultant. I spent many years hosting and attending parties because I LOVE their products - particularly Gail Pittman's pottery. I finally have the time and energy in my life to share this with others.

I occasionally make custom beaded jewelry. It used to be my home-based business, but then I realized I had too damn much going on in my life. Now, I just make things when I feel like it or I get a commission.
In a similar way, I do decorative painting as a way to express myself. One day, maybe I will get around to doing it professionally.
