Welcome To Concrete & Grace!

       Thanks for checking out my blog.
       In the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, I would like to thank all the people who had even the slightest hand in helping me finally finish creating it!
       Those people being...
  • God (of course ;) 
  • Bekah of The Word Crafter for some brilliant help ^_^ make sure to check out Bekah's blog! 
  • Olive Tree of Horse Feathers for all her help with my HTML incompetency as well as some much needed tutorials from Robin Blogs! 
  • Awel P. of Shilah  for some very helpful tutorials.

a writer, a dreamer and a poet.

       I capture life with a camera. Everywhere I go there's always ideas for shots going through my head...unfortunately, I don't always have a camera (or a good enough camera) with which to capture them... On the prompting of a bloggie friend, I did create a photography blog that I encourage you to all please check out! Forgotten Corner Photography

I chose the title Concrete & Grace from Superchic[k]'s song Anthem from their album Beauty From Pain 1.1.

       My passion is writing. Pen in hand when inspiration hits.  Some would call my writing genre to be poetry, but thats really just the format I use. Sometimes it'll be songs, own style, unique to me. Though I have come into the habit of carrying around a notepad and pen with me, I don't always remember to have the paper and my hands and arms usually bear the remains of ink...whether random doodles or words.
I occasionally guest write for Never Alone, an online devotional by teens, for teens.

       I enjoy acting at our local theater and can usually be a bit of a dramatic.

       I have MANY different nick-names given to me by friends and family alike.
The most common being: Siri, Sissy, Drama Queen...oh, and Crazy Hat guy at camp decided it was easier to call me that after my multi-colored hat then butcher my a way, it was kind to my name.

       In the summer I help with our family owned buisness, and every July for the past few years, I attend camp which I like to call 'the Jesus party of awesome'. ^_^

       I love to ride my bike (with no hands being my forte ;), keep in touch with friends far away, and hang out with friends who live close.

       Being creative by nature, some of my favorite pastimes include various forms of art and design whether its beading, sewing, drawing, writing or graphic and web design.
       Pink isn't my color and I'm usually not one to wear it unless theres a lot of black included in the equation.

       Reading is a way to go on adventures without ever leaving home.
       My favorite reads are to numerous to be listed.

       Music is in my blood and always a part of my life.
       Though I'm not musically talented myself throughout everything I do I'm always listening to music and can usually be found flipping through music on my iPod whether I'm on the computer, reading or outside laying in the sun.
       The soundtrack of my life changes and varies depending on my mood.
       Even though my favorite music is hard Christian rock/alternative, I'm rather diverse and my daily listening depends on what I'm reading or how I'm feeling. I listen to everything from Enya to a Christian rapper called K-Dub. I've gone to see Casting Crowns in concert and I listen to Creed. I enjoy going to bluegrass festivals, but what I listen to most and enjoy listening to most is rock [usually of the Christian genre]. Flyleaf, RED, Fireflight, Skillet, Disciple, Decyfer Down, Superchic[k], Switchfoot, House of Heroes, Relient K...and so the list goes on. PS: I don't hate comments!!! ;)
