aaaabout.me

If you know me then you know how much I love my jean jacket. It's a cropped, fitted jacket with tons of buttons and brooches on the front and angel wings on the back and I just love it! It has just enough flair to be totally me.

I also love Instagram, but not just for the amazing photos and wonderful people. I've found some really great websites through my IG peeps. One of them is about.me. I stumbled upon it after reading Jessica Zollman, @jayzombie on IG, was hired to be the new community evangelist for Instagram, and instantly, I knew I had found the solution to my what-the-hey-am-I-going-to-do-for-an-about-me-page problemo.
I really like how it looks totally different from le blog, which let me put my silly personality front and center. But if silly isn't your bag you could choose a simple portrait style photo and let your achievements speak for themselves. Or you could use a photo of you in action and use it to tell the world what kind of things you enjoy doing! It's all about.you!

Another fun website I found through IG is StickyGram. It turns your Instagram pics into magnets! I just found this site through Bleubird—also her IG moniker. I haven't been able to try the service yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to looooove it!

More random stuff about me?

I live in Hawaii, but I was born and raised in Texas, y'all.
My favorite is having breakfast for dinner. Mmmm... french toast......
I can talk like Baby Bunsen from the Muppet Babies.
I am a Goonie.
I have a rubber chicken purse.
Shopping is my therapy.
I neeeed to go to Paris.
I/we have 1 dog (Mia), 2 cats (Bijou & Cosette) and 2 guinea pigs (Hazel & Cocoa).
I can't dive into a swimming pool or swim underwater without holding my nose. It's sad.
When I was 19, I spent 3 months homeless and on food stamps.
Today I am a professional Graphic Designer with my own company.
But soon I am launching another company that focuses on handmade lovelies.  
And if you're reading this then you're the first in 'tha know'—the shop is slated to have its Grande Opening on the notorious day after Thanksgiving, just in time for the Christmas shopping season!
Someday I want to own a cafe/shop/creative space and live above it.
I am in love with all things tiny.
I think drawing a little face on an inanimate object totally brings it to life.
There is no such thing as my favorite color... there are just too many to choose from.
I collect James Avery charms and Ugly Dolls.
3 words. Venti. Iced. Americano.
I want to live in a house where I can ride my bicycle to get coffee.
Patchouli? Love.
Camera? Nikon.
The red or the white? The white.
Macaroni and cheese? Yes, please.

@thinkpriddy it's a long story! short version: i followed a boy. i wound up in the wrong place at the wrong time and the salvation army was the only place i could go. lucky for me it was in Gulfport, Mississippi, not Houston and a long time ago.

now you can ask, "why would you follow a boy to Mississippi?!!" haahaha... eh.. love is blind--especially at 19!

Such a great article put my silly personality front and center. But if silly isn't your bag you could choose a simple portrait style photo and let your achievements speak for themselves. In which photo of you in action and use it to tell the world what kind of things you enjoy doing. Thanks for sharing this article.
