My Bio
I'm a forty-something wife (to Saldemonium) and mom to two fantastic kids. I love to knit - my grandma taught me when I was very young, and I rediscovered the joy of knitting about ten years ago, after years of mostly crocheting. I also love to make jewelry and sew. I'm a proud nerd, a web geek by trade. I'm working on setting up an Etsy shop to sell my handmade items.

I'm American by birth, currently on my way to becoming Canadian. I think I need to update my ID image.

Currently, my fannish pursuits include The Avengers, Assassin's Creed (all of them), Portal 2 and DragonAge: Origins, Awakening, and 2.

NOTE: My user icon was created by Hiyirii and gifted to me by Saldemonium. It's a commissioned work. In other words, it was bought and paid for. Stealing it would be very uncool, so please don't do it.

Current Residence: London, Ontario, Canada
Favourite genre of music: 80s
Operating System: OSX, Win7
MP3 player of choice: iPod Video
Shell of choice: Conch? (bash)

Announcement, not about me

Announcement, not about me

Hi, everyone. =) Many of you here have heard me speak of my daughter, either by name or by username, iamtysha (https://www.deviantart.com/iamtysha) (previously hidinginyourcloset, which is kind of ironic, really), in the past. From now on, you'll be hearing me speak of my son. He is FtM transgender. I don't really expect this to be a problem for anyone who reads this journal, but regardless of how you feel about it, I respectfully request that you respect him and his right to be who he is. If you have any questions, I will do my best to answer them or to pass them on to him for you. He's quite the artist, and you can still find him at iamtysha (https://www.deviantart.com/iamtysha). I'm so proud of him fo

You show me yours

You show me yours

...and I'll show you mine. ;) I got this idea from Magical525 (https://www.deviantart.com/magical525), who got it from Lintu47 (https://www.deviantart.com/lintu47). It works like this: In the comments, post a thumb or link of YOUR famourite deviation from YOUR gallery. No explanation is needed, and there's no request or requirement that you post your own journal like this, though you're welcome to, of course. =) In response, I'll look through your gallery and post a thumb or link of MY favourite deviation of yours. If you feel like doing the same over at either Magical525 (https://www.deviantart.com/magical525)'s or Lintu47 (https://www.deviantart.com/lintu47)'s, it might be fun to see whether any of us choose the same as our favourite of yours. =) Enjoy!
