These “About” pages always make me feel like I’m doing an application for a dating site. “I like long walks by the lake, romantic dinners…….” If you clicked this page, you are either bored or wonder who I am . Below gives you all the gory details.
My name is Bernie and I live in Billings, Montana. In October 2010 we got married in my hometown of Duluth, Minnesota, in a haunted house of sorts. It was a Halloween costume wedding. Sometimes I post pictures of the wedding. New readers freak out when they don’t know it was a costume wedding. They just think my family and friend’s dress funny for weddings.
We have 4 fur children. Three cats and a dog. That is the closest you will get to reading about kids on my page.
I collect and display purses. Not just any purses. They have to be weird or strange. A good example of my purses shows up in my cool picture on this page. I’m always looking to give an ugly purse a home. When people buy a purse for me they base it on if they would carry it. If they wouldn’t then they know I will love it.
In January 2011, I dipped my toe into the crafting pool. Something grabbed my foot and dragged me right on in. Sometimes I might post pictures of the cards I make. If I branch out into trying another craft, I might show that as well. I went from being a huge non-crafter to paper whore. Its a heck of a leap. I also have my very own Etsy shop.
I volunteer at our local Museum of Women’s History. We have a t.v. show and I do the interviews. Our focus is on the lives of some. Every other week I get to interview a woman about her life, career, hobbies and so on. Being a voyeur, this is up my alley! If you are interested in seeing a couple of our shows, here is a link to our YouTube channel. MOWH.
I like long walks by the lake, and now we are back to where we started.
A special shout out and thank you to Julie from Tri-ing to Be Athletic for making my beautiful portrait. Note the cool hooker earrings and my kitchen sink purse! Get a hold of her if you want to hire her to make an image for you. Ask her about current rates.
