Hi! I am Rosie.  I’m an artist with no art, an expert with no specialty. A Jane of all trades, master of none. I’m a hardcore thriftier, sometimes collector, sometimes crafter.

I started my first diary when I was about 8 years old, and keeping a record of my life in some form as been a part of me since. I registered V-e-n-u-s.com in December 2002. Since them this domain has been use to host many of my ideas; a practice html platform, personal site, games/do you remember site, but mostly a host for my personal blog.

Since starting this site I’ve moved away from it to start other blogs about different topics but always seem to work my way back to a personal blog of randomness.

The name “V-e-n-u-s” refers to my old username. In my early days on the internet everyone went by usernames on websites… mine was always some variation of Venus.

I am 41. I’m a Libra. I’m a Californian. I sometimes like to cook, I sometimes following the Weight Watchers program (it’s suppose to be all the time). I have a love/hate relationship with exercise and my weight. As stated earlier on this page I’m a crafter. My craft interests are always changing… right now I’m into dollhouses and miniatures. I am the mother to one child – TheVPrincess… who is no longer a child, and Mommy to Penelope the Super Chihuahua… who is now 15 1/2.

I like to move things around in my apartment… always trying to make decorative improvements. I love vintage, thrift stores, FLEA MARKETS and yard sales. I love old buildings.

What should you expect to read about here? Probably a little of everything…
