After a bit of confusion as to which house I should choose, I decided that at my barest bones I am definitely a BEE. Though I do enjoy incorporating a challenging twist like Monkeys, and love embellishing and bedazzling things like Peacocks, I'm well known by family and friends to be a Producer.

I'm that strange duck who CAN NOT leave the house without a project (or three, because at least in terms of crafting I'm attention deficit). I tweaked one of my inkle looms for portability so that I could take it with me to the park in the summer. I typically have at least one project that is car friendly, like my drop spindle or a little crochet lace edging, and I'm the one at the family bbq sitting in the shade under a tree with my knitting. Occasionally I try to force myself to leave the bag of many things at
home and try to, you know, socialize a bit. I have a lot of anxiety though. So I tend to run back for it at the last minute.

*Car dancing is one of my favorite things. Sit in the seat, buckle the belt, turn the radio on, or slide in a groovin' cd, and get down with your bad self. This gets really awesome at stop lights, in parking lots or in traffic jams, really ESPECIALLY awesome if you can persuade everyone in the car to do it, and totally hilarious if the dudes in the cars around you join in.
So, THIS, and THIS. Not to be confused with THIS, which is also unbelievably cool, but requires some seriously mad skills. Please drive safe.
