About Rosie, Staff Writer



’m a seamstress, knitter, crafter, writer, fat momma with a loud mouth and a big heart. I have an MA in English and for some reason I use that as license to be opinionated as fuck, though I *will* listen to any POV, if it’s presented respectfully; I love learning and I love talking about learning. I live in the desert (reluctantly) with my fantastic husband (who loves me no matter what I say), my amazing daughter (who struggles with mental illness and is an absolute champion), and our adorable little rescue dog (who is blind and farts a lot). If the gods smile on me, my Etsy shop will continue to be my livelihood. When I’m not sewing, even when I should be, I’m usually on Twitter @Aimee_AKA_Rosie (because I took super hero secret identity hiding lessons from Superman. Also, sometimes I’m not as clever as I like to think I am.)
