Professionally, I'm a desktop publishing/documentation specialist. I do writing, copy writing, graphics, web design and anything else that a client needs to gt their message across.

Ideally, I am a six figure income earner who works part time. That's the plan.

This is me, Francine. A syren, a muse, an Artist both on and off the Web. I do crafts of many sorts. This leads to rooms of stuff and tables piled with my latest project in the works. I crochet like a madwoman. I sew pretty. I put things in the ground and take them out then cook them up! I love to cook.

I am an ex-New Yorker married to an ex-Chicagoan now living in the Northwest.

Why am I an artist? Everyone is an artist. You simply need to find your art.

My art is the home.

Much of what you will see on this journal will involve: writing, cooking, cleaning, making life, knitting, crocheting, spinning, dying wool, crafting, my cats, rabbit, and my thoughts on all of the above--and the occasional rainbow.

I am a Benedictine Oblate. This is a third order monastic. I made my final Oblation to St Martin's Abbey in Lacy, Washington in September 2006.

I am an Italian, brought up by the Roman Catholic church. I left, got Jewish, got Pagan, then came home. Now I pray for Peace and Grace. The older that I get, the more I see the need to run and feel the wind, laugh and let my lungs fill with joy. Every day it's a new me...

I am Jet Tadpole.
