& About Me

Hi, I'm Kristin Schwarze.  I also go by Missenota (rhymes with Minnesota.)

Welcome to AndChips!

I love to quilt and sew.

Here are some more things about me:

  • I'm an avid collector/thrift shopper/garage sale enthusiast.  Of course recycling is a good thing but I will get on my soap box any day and preach the gospel of Re-Use! (That goes for pets too.)
  • Cook, history major, Minnesota and Montana enthusiast, spear-fisher and 9.5-year Army veteran (served in Iraq and Bosnia and many other places.)  I love lake swimming, riding my 100cc scooter, gardening, home-brewing beer, taking road trips, and I'm a big movie geek.
  • I live with one fluffy cat, a new human being and a bearded guy I love in a townhouse that could possibly be mistaken for a toy store or tea room.

I'd love to know about you too.  Leave me a comment or drop me a note any time.  Thanks for stopping by!
