Let me properly introduce myself, my name is Casey Kirkland Johnson and I am 23 years old.
Syracuse, New York is where I currently call home, but I grew up about 45 minutes south of here in a small town called Cazenovia. One of those little towns that looks like it belongs in a movie. I share my home with my wonderful boyfriend Mikey, and our 3 cats Durden, Danzig and Mustache.
I am an avid collector. As my mother would say I am a "stuff getter". On my many shelf's are books, fabric, toys, comics, Elvis trinkets, owls, records and plastic toy cameras. If it's old and creepy I probably have it.
For a living I am the head baker at a bakery in downtown Syracuse called Pasta's Daily Bread. There we bake our signature bread called Italian Stretch Bread, foccacias, specialty breads, giant cookies, brownies and various other treats
On my off time I am constantly doing some sort of craft. Painting, crochet, sewing and any sort of home improvement. My greatest dream in life is to take all of those and squish them into one. I want to open a bakery/cafe filled with amazing coffee drinks, baked goods, art and handmade items. Where the decorations are handmade and it feels like a place you could sit for hours with your friends talking and sipping tea. In this blog I like to record new things I learn, what I am working on and fun things that happen during my day.
The next few months should be very exciting, a trip to Florida, Indie Business 2.0, tons of new art and hopefully a new puppy! Spring is bringing amazing changes and I can't wait to share them with everyone! Plus it's about time for a giveaway. Since I never win them (horrible luck with that sort of thing) I want to give someone else the chance to! But more on that later in the week.
It's wonderful meeting you all. And again. Thank you for sharing my little part of the blogosphere with me.
