I saw another blogger (Ladyjane) who is doing Addie Marie's Blog Challenge do a questionnaire.

So I'd thought I'd do one also, for those of you who don't know me!

Who am I?

My name is Carolynn and I am graduate of Liberty University, and I hold a degree in English. I had a GPA of 3.2 and I love to sew, cook, read, write, and draw. However, because of the decline in the job market, I currently work at Virgina Tech...making cheeseburgers. Its a good job, and I'm happy to have one. I make a little more then minimum wage, because I work for the university. I want to be a writer or hold some kind of English job, but my current attempt at obtaining such job seems to be nil...once in awhile I get an interview, with about 300 other people who have more experience then me, are older, have masters, or so forth. But I won't give up! I'll keep applying and right now I know that I'm where God wants me to be...because if I wasn't, I'd be somewhere else!

What is this blog?

This blog is a storage, so to speak, of all the things I create and some of my thoughts and things I do and love. I started it when searching for an outlet, a place to represent myself. I guess it sort of chronicles my growth?

What are some unique things about me?

Well, I have super long hair, am left handed...and I have never used a pattern when sewing. Since I am self taught, I can't figure out patterns for the life of me...so I just don't use them. It makes things more fun and creative and hands-on I think--and also less complex.
Where I want to be in life:
I want to be an etsy seller and make really nice products without mistakes that people love and can enjoy! I also want to publish a book. Those are my dreams!

So that is really all about me! Hope you enjoyed. Any questions? =)

Good for you for being persistent with applying & not getting discouraged! Your attitude & approach to everything really inspires me.
I think it's so cool when people 100% teach themselves without patterns--it is definitely more hands-on, and you also learn to be more innovative, to make executive decisions on your own, & you don't end up with a dependency on patterns. It's fearless! I started with patterns so I have an admiration for those who learned without. :)

Also (mega long comment, I know!) I am SO jealous of your hair! I hope I have to patience to grow mine out that long eventually.
