Technically, I learned how to sew in my 4-H sewing class beginning at age 12. I sewed an emerald green velvet vest with plastic gold buttons, and matching green plaid, elastic-waisted, knee shorts. That was probably my shining moment, but you will find all my subsequent endeavors here. My name is Miriam Tribe, but a lot of people call me Mim.
I am a sucker for self-expression, and don’t really care which vehicle: sewing, drawing, jewelry-making, graphic design, furniture repurposing, writing, dancing, singing, mothering, yodeling, clogging, whatever. They’re all fun, and they all give me that lovely little buzz, of which I’m self-admittedly addicted to. I blog because I’m a prolific crafter who enjoys writing and editing photos, and not at all because I like to show off. No seriously, close behind self-expression is my love of community, and blogging is like partying with your crafty pals without having to vacuum or arrange food (I’m rubbish at party-planning, but remember how I love writing and editing photos?)
My personal life is small yet full and crazy. I have (three) adorable and rather remarkable children whom I love thoroughly, and (one) cute and nerdy husband who I stay-up way too late with (oh, and I love him a lot too). We live in Utah. I speak Spanish. I hate cooking dinner. I love to read. I have a rubber face. I like folk music. I sleep in. I fantasize about busting MJ moves in front of a vast, adoring audience.
Glad you stopped by! Feel free to comment or email, I love to hear from you!
