Hello all, I’m Tammara, also known as Tammy. When Karin asked me to be a guest I was rather shocked, I’ve never thought I was very interesting, but here goes. I’m 48, the mother of three, grandmother of two. I currently live in a little town in northern Minnesota’s Itasca county.
I have discovered that you absolutely cannot have too many fuzzy snugglies. We moved here in November of 2016 to be closer to my husband’s family who needed a bit more help. I work the night shift at Wal-Mart as a stocker. It’s a very physical job but lets me see all the new “toys” as we get them in. My collection of yarn and fabrics has not decreased at all since I started working there.
I crochet a bit, I’m still a novice after many years. I make simple things, scarves, small blankets, bookmarks and the like. I recently bought a set of knitting looms and am teaching myself to loom knit by way of YouTube and Pinterest.
I color and draw, love to garden and cook and I enjoy woodworking and metal crafting. I occasionally make jewelry and wind chimes. I have in the past dabbled with making my own yarn on a drop spindle and woven a small tapestry on a simple lap loom. I have up-cycled thrift store clothing into quilts and simple clothing. I rarely if ever took pictures. I never really thought about it.
I research anything that strikes my interest and I collect old herbal remedy recipes. I write but don’t publish because I am rarely happy with with I have written. My family likes to say that I’m a bard, not a scribe because I can tell a story but not write it.
I just started a bullet journal to help me get myself lined out. I am probably one of the most disorganized people on the face of the earth. I have over a dozen projects in boxes scattered around the garage and basement. When Karin requested this blog, I realized how I many partial projects I have in progress and freaked. I now have a whole new section in the journal to remind me of what is yet to be completed.
I enjoy reading almost anything. Currently, I am reading through all of the stories on Rough Trade. I am also reading through Hellbells stories on AO3, https://archiveofourown.org/users/hellbells/pseuds/hellbells/bookmarks?page=3
after that, I’m now even sure where to go. I have a large collection of books on my shelves by a variety of authors in a variety of subjects. What I read changes from moment to moment.
That’s about all I have, I hope no one was too badly bored. I wish everyone a happy and peaceful Holiday season and a blessed New Year.
Take Care Everyone,
Tammy aka Tammara
