Adirondack Mountains, New York

Wife, mother, chicken wrangler, soon-to-be-famous vegetarian chef, and outdoorswoman. I love music, 80s sitcoms, Ben Stiller movies, and the books of the Dalai Lama. If I'm not beading or thinking about beading, I'm usually in the canoe, in the gardens, or in the kitchen.
