When I'm not geeking out over SEO and Internet taxonomies, I'm geeking out over apparel knitting, sewing and food crafts. I started crafting when I was a little girl butchering my family's bedsheets and socks to make clothes for my pets. A few decades later, college and work got in the way. Now that I've settled into a job I love, I'm ready to get crafty again.
