About Me

My name is Michelle. I am 28 years old, and live in Des Moines, WA with my husband and two cats.

I work at a building remediation and architecture firm. I studied architecture and environmental studies in college, and I am really interested in the structures around us, both man-made and natural. I am currently studying to get my license as an Architect, and hope to achieve this goal by the end of this year, 2020.

In my free time, I enjoy creating things in many different medias: drawing, painting, collaging, knitting, sewing, jewelry design, digital design, cooking and baking. I am an artist at heart, but definitely need some development.

I also like spending time in nature. On weekends, we go for hikes in different parks, to see all wonderful things that Washington State has to offer. I also have adopted 30+ houseplants that keeps the outdoors around me in my home at all times.

I never intend on flaking, so if something does not arrive, please let me know before rating me poorly! I am more than willing to resend if necessary!

Don't be a stranger :)

Favorite Crafts

I've been really into ATCs lately. I love restricting yourself to such a small canvas to make a work of art, and I love looking back on ATCs that I've received and the different techniques used.

I gravitate towards mixed media art and collaging. I also enjoy drawing, mostly with ink and marker, and painting.

I used to be big on knitting and jewelry design, but haven't had the time to pick that up.

I want to start doing rock painting. I've seen photos of people's inspirational rock gardens, with quotes for people to take, and it seems like such a wonderful and positive idea. I want to create a bunch and make my own inspiration rock garden in my neighborhood.

Favorite Books

I have recently started reading a lot more than I used to. There are a lot of books on my "To Read" list that I have not gotten around to reading. I really enjoy futuristic books, especially those depicting dystopian futures. I also enjoy self-improvement books, classic works and poetry.

Favorite Television

I don't watch a lot of television. But I tend to migrate towards comedy and dramas. My favorite show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer (on my 4th time watching the series now). Coming in a close second is "Tim and Eric Awesome Show," mostly because the offbeat humor makes it so great.

Some other shows I love:

  • It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
  • Tim and Eric Awesome Show
  • Portlandia
  • Survivor
  • The Office
  • Arrested Development
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Tom Goes to the Mayor
  • Breaking Bad
  • Malcolm in the Middle
  • Futurama
  • King of the Hill
  • Friends

Favorite Movies

I like a little bit of every genre of music. I grew up listening to 60's and 70's oldies, country and classic rock. In addition to that, I frequently listen to modern rock, postmodern hardcore, metal, hip hop and rap, acoustic, folk, pop and instrumental. I am always broadening my horizons in music that I listen to.

Some favorites:

  • Silverstein
  • Say Anything
  • Janis Joplin
  • Hotel Books
  • Being as an Ocean
  • Led Zeppelin
  • Paramore
  • Poppy
  • The Killers
  • Matchbook Romance
  • Eminem
  • Aesop Rock
  • Metallica
  • Rise Against
  • Foo Fighters
  • Bayside
  • Muse
  • 30 Seconds to Mars
  • Mika
  • Sigur Ros
  • The Avett Brothers
  • Iron and Wine

Hi

Great to ready your profile! I love cats too. I have a big old tabby cat named Jesse. He’s my snuggle bunny. I love seeing beautiful old architecture so I can appreciate your desire to be an architect. Shame it takes so long. I also love the Princess Bride but I haven’t seen it in a while.

Hi, I enjoyed reading your profile. My uncle used to live in Kent, so I sort of know your area. Wonderful place. Your hiking must take you to lovely spots up there. I live in Colorado, so I've hiked a lot. Take care and happy crafting. Jean Blender [email protected]
