Mystery of TICC

I just thought I would give a little information about the mystery of ticc since I have been asked a few times. :O) My name is Susan, I'm the person behind the ticc name. I was born and raised in Texas so I guess that makes me a 100% bonified Texan with Native Indian in my blood. LOL. I am married with two sons, as well as daughter-in-laws with two addorable grandsons from my side of the family. From my husband's side I have a step son, step daughter and a daughter-in-law, as well as 4 granddaughters and 2 grandsons. We have two dogs, Prissy and Sugar Bear which sometimes can be worse then kids I think. We have twelve chickens that consist of one rooster and eleven hens which all have names. Yes, they've all been named. :O)

I enjoy fishing or working with my computer. I love to garden, and collect “way too many things”, including Indian statues, pictures and artifacts, along with many other things. At other times I enjoy doing crafts, crocheting along with many other types of crafts, and drawing, along with some reading. I do all sorts of different things except for knitting, which I could never get thrilled about doing. I go through phases so I'm always changing what I'm working on or what I'm making. I guess you can tell I went through a dream catcher phase recently. Now that I've finished all the dream catchers, I'm now deciding on what my next project will be.

Lot of you are probably wondering how Trouble Ink/Crafty Crafts (ticc) got started. At the time that I started my little side business I was doing computer repairs, as well as my crafts along with my full-time job that I also do. So the Trouble Ink covered my computer part, and the Crafty Crafts covered the craft part. Well, I kind of phased out the computer part, but I still do a little here and there. Since everyone knew me by this name, and it would be too much of a hassle to redo everything it is still with me. So that is how ticc came about. Hopefully, this has covered a lot of questions, and resolved the mystery behind ticc.

Have a great day!!!!!

Well, it's wonderful to officially meet you, Susan! :D You've been so supportive & kind, it's great to put a personal name to the TICC brand. Love that your chickens all have names, I've been known to name bugs, so it seems perfectly natural to me! And you're certainly not alone in the collecting department. What an interesting combination - computer repairs & crafting, a real renaissance woman, nice! I'll be posting a link to your giveaway later or maybe tomorrow - will let you know w/ a comment. :)

You're very welcome. :O) Thanks Kim. It must be perfectly natural to name different things. LOL. I will bad about doing that. I'm sure everyone has something or several things that they collect. My biggest collection I have is my Troll Dolls, which is around 300 so far. :OD Yep, I collected them and still do when I find one I don't have. Not sure why, it's just something about those cute face expressions that suckered me in. I guess I better hush for now, or some people are going to think I'm really weird. :O) Have a great day!!!!
