So, today started very early, with me doing spinning demos at a nearby pioneer village. We saw over 400 kids today, and all before noon, whew! Enjoy! #spinning #demo #weaving #pioneerlife #knitting

and your friends are the richer for knowing you, +Joy Wandrey . I am hoping I get to own a sheep and a goat at some point in my life. I wish I had understood about the beauty of time when I was younger. Then I might have trusted myself to go for it.

Well, my husband didn't win a Dragon Award, this year. He was a finalist in the Best Post-apocalyptic Novel category, which went to Nick Cole for "CTRL, ALT, Revolt". Great book, go read it, then read "A Time to Die" by Mark Wandrey!
Congrats to all the nominees, finalists, and winners! It's all about the stories!

+mary Zeman​, +Carrie Canup​, and any of my other friends with chronic illnesses, you may want to read this article. It backs up our eperiences of exercise making the fatigue and other symptoms worse! https://www.statnews.com/2016/09/21/chronic-fatigue-syndrome-pace-trial/
A much-touted study recommended therapy and exercise for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Problem is, it was based on bad science.

Well, Operation Move the Flock was successful! There are now sheep at Freehold! Many thanks to my friend Karla for helping capture and load all 6 sheep. Here they are, fresh off the trailer and beginning to explore their new home. And of course, thanks to Mark H Wandrey for his help too.

+Ingrid Rosario​, he's there, you can just see his head poking up above the 2nd fluffy white butt, he has big horns and the fluffy ones dont. He's mostly hidden.

+David Anders​, the very last of the house things come home tomorrow, the animals next weekend, and the woodshop maybe the weekend after that. So, mostly, sorta, kinda. House stuff is moved except for 2 items I needed help with. Thanks for asking!

Story
Tagline
Woodworker and Textile artist, hippie chick, libertarian, Mom and wife.
Introduction
I'm a hippie chick, mom, wife and artist now starting my own business. I choose the best fleeces from the old sheep breeds that are in decline, clean, dye and prep those fleeces for spinning. In this way I am working to preserve the heritage breeds and make the spinning of their wool as easy and enjoyable as possible.  I also make wooden tools for textile artists and spin and knit; I sell all these things at small shows and fairs in TN.  You can find me at www.spinnersendstudio.com and at www.etsy.com/shop/SpinnersEndStudio, and www.knitnick.deviantart.com. I also draw mandalas and usually have some available for sale. 
Bragging rights
I have a BFA in woodworking from Herron School of Art, IUPUI, as well as a MLS from IU. I have a good husband and a wonderful son, and a whole menagerie of four-legged friends including dogs, cats, goats, donkeys, and some winged ones too, chickens and ducks.
