my first post, a little background on ME! =)

Who doesn't just LOVE to talk about themselves?!
Okay, so I don't. I do, but I don't. I feel like I either make myself sound so incredibly dull that you'd rather read a VCR manual than my bio, or I babble on and on and on until you know way more than you ever wanted to know. I can't seem to find that balance in between that's just enough to make you want to read more but not so much that you start thinking about whether you shut off the shower this morning in the middle of my sentences.

I'll give it a shot anyway. My name is Lisa. I'm a college student and *sales associate* for a craft store in South Jersey. I'm studying to be an entreprenuer and open up my own little yarn shop, because there are NO yarn shops in my little town; just big bad Walmart and Michael's (who currently pays me). We have AC Moore's and Joann's too, you just have to drive a little further for them. Which I have. To almost all of them within this state. Because I have an addiction.

Two addictions, I suppose you could say. They sort of feed off each other. I've always had a shopping addiction. When I was a teenager, it was shoes, purses, clothes, etc. But now, it's yarn. Supply for my other addiction, crochet. I like to knit too, but I have much more faith in my crochet. I can crochet anything. And my yarn stash has taken over about half of the room in the 2nd floor that my fiance and I share in my parents' house. Here's a picture of JUST my cotton yarn:

I told you. Addicted. But anyway, I love to design patterns too, which I plan to start selling to support these habits I have.

I also have a baby girl; she's black, fuzzy, and has a wet nose. Her name is Holly and she's a puggle! (It's a "designer dog" - part beagle, part pug.) She's about a year and a half old now and she's my little cuddle bunny. I tend to spoil her; from all the toys laying around the house, you would think I have like five kids. Nope, they're all hers. She loves to rip them all to shreds but she looks so cute doing it. Here's a pic of the little sweetie:

So I think that's a fairly decent introduction. I didn't get into my childhood memories or number of hair color changes and identity crises I went through in high school so hopefully you're not scared off yet. =)
