Alison Reads

Joined 6 years ago from Florida, USA




During my first week as a freshman in college, my sporty new roommate and I went to the dining hall for dinner. While we were there, we ran into some of my roommate's new friends - all boys, all in the Army ROTC program. When my roommate introduced me to her new friends, all she said was, "This is Alison. She reads."

And, you know, I guess that's true! Though it was a mildly mortifying way to be introduced to a bunch of jocks, her statement very neatly summed me up.

My name is Alison, and I read.

I also love everything handmade! I make chainmaille and beadwoven jewelry and sell it at http://tangledcharm.etsy.com and I love learning about all kinds of handcrafting, from woodworking to metalsmithing and everything else!
