A little about me (beyond the "About Me" section): I'm a Professional Registered Nurse working full-time as an RN Case Manager for a Hospice company. My job is never dull and is highly rewarding. Unfortunately, I cannot honestly say that I enjoy being a nurse, but I do love taking care of my patients. I know that probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense so I'll explain what I mean. I love taking care of my patients, but I very much dislike all the red tape and paperwork that goes along with it. I also dislike the current job instability (yes, even nurses are having a hard time finding jobs). That being said, the other reason I don't particularly enjoy being a nurse is because I have Systemic Lupus and Fibromyalgia. If you know anything about either condition, you know that fatigue and pain play a big role here. It can get frustrating at times, but eh, it's life!
Now on to the fun stuff! Crafting is my FAVORITE thing to do and what I do when I'm not at work. I spin, knit, crochet, weave, embroider, sew, make handmade soaps and am trying to learn quilting. I could do this 24/7, I kid you not! I'm so excited to get this blog going and hopefully soon, will get some fab tutorials up! If you happen to be wondering what the whole "Fred's in the Head" thing is about?? We have two Boston Terrier rescues who I ADORE! Our little Koko is the doggie on the left and Bodie is the doggie on the right. Female and male. As mischievous and rambunctious as they come! I don't know when I started calling them, "Fred's in the head," but it fits them perfectly. They inspire a great deal of my creativity and snuggle really nice too...
