so on all the other blogs i read, apparently it's time to de-lurk yourself! (like here and here and here )
without further ado...i'm jenifer lake, 32 years old, married 5.5 years, together 10. i live in san francisco in the dogpatch neighborhood in a big old factory live/work place with the mister (bl), & my doggie dixie loo loo (or dixie noodle, or dixie cricket or dixie pixie...you get the picture, we like our dog a lot). i teach art m-f to kindergarten to 8th graders at a little private french catholic school downtown san francisco. i like it a lot - & love my kiddos i teach most days! i also own & run my little business, sprout studio where i make handmade lovelies, art goodies, and whatever else i fancy. & i fancy a lot. i love to go thrifting. i love to read, i love to watch movies, but i don't own a t.v. & never will, i like to take pictures (even more since becoming addicted to flickr, check out my photos by clicking on the little flashy in your face flickr logo there to the left!), i like to cook & sometimes bake. i really love to drink red wine. i'm a vegetarian, but i cheat sometimes & eat seafood occasionally. i'm a big fan of wandering around neighborhoods, i'm not a big morning person, especially when it's dark outside, however on the rare occasion that i see the sunrise it is magical & i love it. i've had some health issues pop up this year that have actually enabled me to slow down and embrace the 'cracks' in my life & go with being tired at 9pm because of some of the meds i'm on. i've made art for as long as i can remember. i'm going to europe this summer for the first time & i'm so very excited. i like big white fluffy bath towels, i am mostly a tea only kinda gal, and my favorite treat is super dark chocolate. i love stripey socks, vintage clothing, flip flops & slippers. i love living here in san francisco & hope i never leave. i love to take road trips & we try to get out often in our volkswagen camper bus. we love the back roads & try to travel them as much as possible. i miss all the friends that i have that don't live near me. i like lots of plants, 1950's kitchen ware, i knit occasionally, i know how to throw a pot, silk screen a t-shirt & i love to collage paper goodies together. i know how to sew just a little bit. i often tend to think i know too many things in a halfway sense & not any one thing all the way. i love reading other people's arty blogs. there will never be enough time in any day for me to have the energy to create all the art i would want too...so i store it all away in my brain for a later time, a later life!
ok, now it's your turn -- some of you i know, but i'm sure some of you i don't. comment away folks & tell me about yourselves!!
