10 years ago…

i was tagged by ska mama for this meme, so i thought i’d oblidge. mid afternoon, it’s sunny. i’ve been knitting a bsj instead of getting ready for the craft fair and the book release party.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

ten years ago i was still in school at the university of montana – undergrad, studying art, english and teaching. i was also working part time at a fabulous independent used and bargain bookstore and somewhere around then i moved out of my parents house and was living with my friends in a old ramshackle house in downtown missoula for dirt cheap rent. it used to be a commune and had a home made 10 toothbrush holder in the bathroom when we moved in. can’t tell you how not insulated that house was and how really really cold it was in the winter. i should have thought more about that before i decided that drawing myself nude in november and december was a good idea.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order)?
clean yoga studio
mail packages
work on bsj
pack up for craft fair
eat, drink, be merry, and sign books at the book release party

3. Snacks I enjoy.
fresh fruit and veggies (especially straight out of the garden or from a farmer’s market)
popcorn – but only the way my husband makes it
ants on a log

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire.
feed people.
support the arts.
work towards re-structuring of society to less car-based and more community based.

5. Places I have lived
the rocky mountains
the cascade mountains on the coast
the hills of south western pennsylvania

6. Jobs I’ve had.
camp counselor/kitchen aide
hostess at the montana pie co.
sales person etc. at the university of montana bookstore – the art section
clerk and associate manager at The Book Exchange
self-employed fiber artist combined with the odd job here and there and probably to be mixed with a house cleaning job very soon

7. Peeps I want to know more about:
although i will respond when others call on me to meme, i am a shy memer when it comes to calling on others… if you’d like to share with the rest of us, feel free.

have a great weekend!!

p.s. if you’re interested, the book is now back in stock over in the shop!

  1. Hi Cosy! Congratulations on the book- I received mine in the mail today and I’m THRILLED to have it in my eager little hands :] Can’t wait to get started- I can only hope my embroidery looks half as great as yours does……it may take some practice, but it will be fun! Have a great time at your book signing- GREAT WORK!

  2. Sorry I couldn’t make the book signing-it was my first week back to work and I was just fried. Hopefully I’ll be in to get a copy soon! Congrats to you.
