A little about me:
I am an artist, working in a diverse medium. Mostly, I work in fiber and rocks. I make jewelry, lace, fabric, trim. I also draw occasionally, paint seldomly, and use pastels once in a blue moon.
I am a crafter and entrepreneur. I make soaps, lotions, body butters, lip balms, bath salts, salt and sugar scrubs, and sell them all.
I’m a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism. The SCA is a non-profit organization recreating the best things about the Middle Ages. If you are interested or want more information, please go to www.sca.org to learn more about us.
I’m a stay at home … something. I am the primary caretaker of my husband’s elderly mother.
I am also fat, and a Fat Activist, I preach Fat Acceptance, and I believe in Health at Every Size (HAES) While all of the above is part of what makes me me, this blog will specifically be about FA and HAES.
Ground rules for this blog:
Polite debate is welcome and encouraged. You do not need to be in lock step with me on this blog. However, I must stress the word “polite”. Think of this as my living room and you are a guest, and please act accordingly.
Flames will not be permitted or tolerated.
Trolls will not be permitted or tolerated.
Everybody will be moderated at first. Once I know the rules will be followed, I will take you off moderation.
I have decided to update this blog on a regular schedule, instead of irregularly like I have done in the past. The new update will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Saturdays will usually be some fluff type stuff, and may even go off the topic of FA or HAES.
So, come on in. Kick off your shoes. Get comfy. Have a drink of your choice and a snack, and let’s start talking!
