Hi fellow creative souls,
It seems that while I've been lurking and commenting I have not taken the 2 minutes to introduce myself. Time to rectify that I say!
My name is Ruth Smith. A plain name for a plain looking gal who likes to make pretty things.
By day I commute in my mini-van to a large OEM factory where I corral cats as an IT Project Manager. By night I create in the little back corner studio in my suburban home.
In between I teach my daughter to be strong, my son to show emotion and my husband to pick up his socks. Teenagers are the biggest challenge I have faced so far. When there's time left over I indulge in my many other hobbies. I liked vampires before they were cool (or wimpy) and have always been a nerd.
I have been creating for decades and through many trends I've learned to knit, crochet, cross stitch, sew, sketch, embroider, embellish, fabric paint and a boat load of other endeavors.
Currently I am obsessed with jewelry making and when beads became boring I created a fun little geekdom for myself at www.periwinkledzyns.etsy.com where I showcase my nerdy creations made from obsolete computer parts.
Looking forward to meeting more of the team!
