I've led a very eclectic life!

I'll start with my first real-world job. It's as far from jewelry design as it could possibly be -- four years in the US Air Force. Joining right from high school, I spent a year in California learning Korean, and then off to Osan AB, Korea, to work an Intel position. Lots of fun (except for chemical warfare exercises), but no beading. I never even thought of it.

After four years in Korea, I left the military for the civilian world and held a few different jobs, mostly in marketing. While marketing didn't have a thing to do with making cool things, it DID give me a solid background that I now use everyday in how to market myself and my company.

A quick jaunt to Italy occurred when I realized I was never going to

Quiet and sad, tragic and hopeful, depressing and a bit disturbing, it's about a quietly dysfunctional family on the brink...but the brink of good, or the brink of disaster?

You decide.

This could be any of our stories. There but for the grace of God

Toni berkshire Hi, Lori - glad to meet you. Knitting books sounds good. I just finished, 'Died in the Wool', and Knit fast, Die Young, by Mary Kruger and Indigo Dying by Susan Witting Albert. Personally, I crochet, but haven't found many murder book series about crocheting, yet.
