Hi, and welcome to my profile and blog! My name is Jodie and I'm a cross-stitch addicted museum studies graduate student. I love stitching (clearly), knitting, quilting, reading, writing, and learning. I have a weird obsession with donkeys that I can't really explain. I'm very attached to the citizens of Llanview Pennsylvania who make the ABC soap One Life to Live worth watching every day, and I am freakishly obsessed with Rachael Ray. I'm a runner, a gardener, and a lover of all different kinds of tea with a very serious coffee addiction. I volunteer at a canoe museum, and I work in a salad bar chopping fruits and veggies, creating baskets, trays, and various seasonal concotions. I have amazing friends, a great family, and the most beautiful German Shepherd. So basically....I'm just me!
