Who exactly are your reading about?

» Filed under on July 13, 2007

Well that would be the trio of course…I know…trio doesn’t give you much huh…sit back relax and enjoy a bit about each member of our Quirky Crew!

QuirkyK here:

The short and sweet version…I’m a Mother to a fabulous little girl and boy whom I call Monkey and Little Red respectively. Daughter to a unbelievable Mom (otherwise known as Deborah or QuirkyD) and Dad (the Todd man :)) Throw in a ton of other loving family/friends and poof you have the makings of little ol’ me…Now if you have been perusing our little home here then you know that short version is soooo NOT THE TYPICAL QuirkyK rantings :) So here ya go..the bloated version…

To begin…a poem where my personality or a part of it can be gleaned from within the lines.

I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess.
He asked if I’d been ‘computering’,
And I had to answer “yes.”

He told me to get off my fanny
And tidy up the house.
And so I started cleaning up…
The smudges off my mouse.

I wiped and shined the topside.
That really did the trick…
I was just admiring my work..
I didn’t mean to ‘click.’

But click, I did, and oops I found
A real absorbing site
That I got SO way into.
I was into it all night.

Nothing’s changed except my mouse
It’s very, very shiny.
I guess my house will stay a mess…
While I sit here on my hiney.

Pretty strong indication that I think the digital world has it all huh ?!?!? Friends, family, memories. What more could a girl ask for? Oh wait…the eyecandy! A girl (and yes I finally admit I, Tomboy Kristen has joined the ranks of girly girls out there!) has to have her purtties!! And I can get a BIG chunk of all that right here within the world of the web!

To start…the friends…oh I have a TON on here (you know web world), and I quote “I love my computer because my friends live in it!” Now that is kinda true..the friends living in it part (at least some of them) Neighbors both techno and old fashioned are a wonderful addition to my life. What would a girl do if she didn’t have someone to bounce an idea off of might I ask?

Family..I have a bunch online and a few close by..You will not only hear about but more than likely see much of my family scattered among the pages of this blog. They inspire my creativity and we all know a crafter must have creativity! They shine in my photography and humor the experiments. They offer the guts for my scrapping. And more than anything else they offer this wound up girl a bit of stability and encouragement…so now that you know my family is the perfect Brady Bunch in theory…reality…We AREN’T! We are rough around the edges but worth the effort in my opinion!

Enough about family what about me! I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, as can be seen in my multitude of jobs: Engineering firm, Retail, Horse Farm, Yoga Studio Owner, Non Profit Contract Manager and can you believe I’m adding Craft Business and Medical Admin to the list!! I work hard if I must, play hard all the time, and love this wonky thing I call life! That thirst mentioned earlier creeps up every now and then with a new craft as well. I love the following and hope to continually add to my talents as time marches on: Tatting, Crocheting, Knitting, Sculpting, Jewelry making, Drawing, Cross Stitch, photography, scrapping and writing. I love any computer related bit of knowledge…I just can’t get enough! With that I’ll leave you to go study some obscure craft or coding, the never ending educational road!

From my imagination to your hands I say Namaste,
