Handmade

I like to dabble. I've tried screenprinting, acrylic painting, making my own furniture, knitting, sewing, an online Second City writing class...if I didn't have to work for a living - I would just take classes on anything and everything. Well, in between traveling the world and eating my way through different cities.
