Probably the weirdest thing about being an adult is how no one stops you from doing things.

How to win friends and influence people.

Listening to: Queen - Don't Stop Me Now

I'm a shooting star leaping through the skies
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I'm gonna go go go
There's no stopping me
I'm burning through the sky, yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm traveling at the speed of light

Relax and you will float

I'm leaving for PDX on Thursday.
I don't have a job, nor a place to live.
Also, I don't know anyone there.

In lieu of flowers, please donate mix CDs.

I'm a horrible swimmer. But when I was a teenager I drove down to Lake Timberline a lot and I always wanted to swim across the lake so I could jump off these people's dock who were never home. You know how I did it? I stopped like every third minute to relax, float.

No idea how to swim, but I made it back and forth across that lake countless times.

It's Official; I'm weird

I saw my first 25-pound bag of carrots almost four years ago. I was new at Food Fantasies and when people bought things that seemed odd to me and I couldn't imagine why on earth a person would need such a thing, I'd ask them what they were planning to do?

Now, I get it. I'm growing and canning my own foods. I have gallon jars of Kombucha and Compost Tea sitting around on my counter. I grow and can my own vegetables. 

Hi, my name is Jeannette E Spaghetti, and I buy carrots 25 pounds at a time.

One of a kind

Many people have given me their broken dishes and at some point or another, I cut them into pieces for a mosaic.

This particular piece is from a plate donated by a Food Fantasies customer. Carol volunteers in a thrift store and sets aside chipped dishes they receive but can't sell. I love finding a purpose for something that would otherwise end up in a landfill. (Thank you, Carol!)

Dishes offer me a variety of colors and patterns that can't be acquired any other way and I absolutely love the way text blends into my mosaics. 

This is the first time I've ever found my last name.
