10 Random Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me:

1.       I like the song “Footloose” and not in the ironic way, rather in the “turn this up, this is my jam way”. 

2.       I am fanatical about toe nail polish.  It bothers me to no end when women wear sandals without toe nail polish.  Gross!

3.       I hoard hair products like they are going out of style, but hate doing my hair.  When the zombie apocalypse happens, I intend to die with great hair. (Note to self: buy more dry shampoo!)

4.       I work messy.  Stuff everywhere, paint flying, scraps of metal and gemstones scattered everywhere.

5.       I tear inspiration pages out of magazines, let them pile up for a year and then go back through them only to forget what I liked about them to begin with.

6.       I get giddy when working in a new medium, like I have found the meaning of life each and every time.  Then I try a new one and it starts all over again.

7.       It weirds me out to have white walls.  We have white walls in our house for the first time ever because I thought a blank slate would be inspiring.  It is overwhelming instead.

8.       I cannot live without hand lotion.  I lotion excessively, to the point of compulsion.

9.       I love a good cry, any kind of cry but I absolutely detest crying in front of people.  In the rare instance that I cry in front of you, pretend like you don’t see it.

10.   It feels foreign to refer to myself as an artist.  This is a term I think is applied too loosely.  I am rather a maker of pretty things who wants to be an artist when she grows up.
