guess it's de-lurking time! :)

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!!

i wonder if i could sum myself up like a classified ad:
married, f, 29, north carolinian. . .
2 dogs, 2 cats, artist, secretary, i hate the telephone but realize its necessity, blog, take pictures, and constantly seek balance though sometimes it's difficult to find.

i never go onto my blog anymore... de-lurk? let's try a condensed version... my name is brooklynn moore, everyone spells it wrong but i really have two n's; trust me. i never know what day it is and i'm not one for time and i've no head for figures. i can't spell, so forgive me now for any spelling mistakes. i'm 15 and i've never been married *haha* i go to boarding school down south, monterey. I'm a soph (which really means wise moron). I like to look at art more than i like to make it, but i do like to write and i constantly have ink stains on my hands and all over my sheets. i usually never go to bed before midnight, i think ice cream and greenbeans=life and my favorite book is my complete collection of anne sexton. oh my weapon of choice is caffine, and my slogan is "in order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." so quoted from coco chanel.

did i de lurk?
