This picture was taken a while ago on a very windy and freezing cold beach. I'm not joking when I say that I'm wearing sunglasses in almost every picture ever taken of me and I think it's kind of important to show a picture without the shades for a change! I've noticed I've recently gotten some new followers and want to welcome you all with a little post introducing myself. Hello! Here are five things that you might not already know about me, Sarah, the person behind Sadie Designs:
I am always busy. I often read a book while watching tv and checking my e-mail. I don't know when I started to be this way, but it's how I am now. I want a cabin on the Oregon coast where I can go to do nothing. Nothing!
I have traveled a bit, but not enough. This picture of Jeff and I was taken in the Netherlands pretty much the day after we got engaged. On that particular trip we also went to Barcelona (most fun ever!), Paris, London, and all over the place in the Netherlands (traveling by bike, canoe, boat, bus, train, tram, and plane, no less!).
Speaking of our engagement, Jeff and I have been together since we were young twenty-somethings (a while ago now!) and are getting married this fall.
On a cross-country road trip with my family in 1990 I accidentally drank the water that my stepdad was soaking his tooth plate in. In other words, I downed a glass of water with a false tooth floating in it. I'm still kind of grossed out by that and I also still act like it was no big deal when I'm around my family, who like to retell this story every Christmas.
I used to work at a migratory bird sanctuary and the best bird I ever spotted I saw with my very good friend, Jill, one memorable May day. We saw a Western tanager near Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park. What a thrill (for nerds like us)!
I hope this sheds some light on the person behind Sadie Designs. I've had a great time getting to know many of you already and look forward to meeting new followers, too! In the next few days I'll be sharing some new jewelry that will be showing up in the Sadie shop including...some new Cave Explorers!
