Getting to Know: Carey at Gypsy Thread ~ 4/4/13

Name: Carey Cherivtch
Home State: MA
State of Residence: FL
Birthday: October 16
Hair Color: Light brown?
Eye Color: They change – usually some form of blue, gray, or green

Home life (Family, pets, etc.): My 20 year-old man-child, James, keeps promising he’s going to move out soon so I can convert his bedroom into my very own sewing paradise. It doesn’t seem likely in any sort of immediate future, though. Am I a bad mother for looking forward to having an “empty nest”?

Occupation: Once upon a time I worked in corporate finance and corporate legal worlds. In June 2005 I ended up developing a neurological disease, CRPS, and have technically been “disabled” since. To stay productive I put more effort into one of my hobbies, sewing, and Gypsy Thread was born.

Favorite food: Yes. Food. Food is my favorite. 
Go-to beverage of choice: Coffees and Iced Tea

Favorite Accessory: Earrings and Bracelets

What's your blog/website(s)? /

Why do you blog/write? What do you hope to accomplish with blogging? My blog is terribly neglected. I do try to use the platform to write about my sewing adventures and let others know where I’ve been fortunate enough to find treasures.
What's the latest goings-on that you would want others to know about? I’m still trying to find my footing after moving from MA to FL last August. I miss my loving family, fabulous fabric stores, and favorite foodie spots. I am super grateful to have found several great groups of other artisans to connect with who have been a fabulous help socially and in finding new resources. However, I am absolutely NOT missing the New England winter!
Any words of encouragement or wisdom to impart? "Everything can be taken from a man but the last of human freedoms, the right to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances - the right to choose one’s own way." ~ Viktor Frankl
