I've been lurking for a little while now, but I feel it is the time to introduce myself proper-like. My name's Carolyn, and I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada with my boyfriend and our bearded dragon, Boba Fett. I have a bath & body business in its 4th year that keeps me very busy and very happy.
I like shiny things, snowboarding on my bum (one of these days I WILL stand!), and lakes with toe-nibbling fish. I'm into pottery, taking pictures (mine are horrible, really, and my sister is a pro photographer - HOW did that happen, again?), cooking about twice a month, and eating. Yep, I'm really into the eating.
In my short time here I have learned OODLES and OODLES. Thank you all so so much for your generosity with your knowledge and ideas. I can't believe how freely many of you give out your finely-tuned-made-of-your-own-sweat-and-tears recipes, and I hope that I'll be as helpful to you as you have been to me.
Some interesting things that I know about
1. Stained glass. I worked as a pro glass artisan for 8 years, and made the windows for the Vatican Embassy in Canada. If there's anything you want to know about stained glass, I'd be happy to help.
2. Painting walls. Yep, it's pretty straightforward, but if you've never painted a wall, I'm your girl. We're talking advice here, I'm not coming to your house with a roller and brush.
3. Vegetarian cooking. I've been vegetarian since I was 12, so although I'm not the best cook, I do have some good recipes floating around. Be forewarned, though, they all contain copious amounts of cheese
. So if you're looking for low fat options, um, sorry!
G'day to ya all! And thanks again!
