Hello! I’m Cassie – a thirty something living in the Pacific Northwest in one of the rainiest places around – no umbrellas needed simply put up your hood. I’m a total homebody, library fanatic, tea connoisseur, a wannabe world explorer and handheld gaming lover. By day I work for an IT lead gathering firm, by other part of the day I am artist and jeweler extraordinaire at Fortuna Phials and then by night I am queen bee here at Hey Fringe.
HeyFringe is a personal blog all about geekery, tea, beauty, cooking, handmade stuff, and my rather sad obsession with books. I created HeyFringe to really be a place for me to talk about my weird habits, review things I’ve read or listened to, and to talk about my ridiculous cat named Fatty Lumpkin with her daily kitty life struggles.
I went to the crazy hippy liberal arts college that is The Evergreen State College [the THE is in the official name] where I studied classics, art history, worked in the writing center, learned about printmaking [I’m terrible at it] and fine metals [which I freaking love.] While at TESC I managed to live in Florence, Italy for a while, work 2 jobs and do 22 credit hours and miss every math class on earth. I graduated and moved down to where I am at now as a credentialed adult. Or something.
I live in an 2 bed room apartment with my boyfriend of four years [five years? I have no idea] skitch in Vancouver, WA. We like to play boardgames and video games, listen to upbeat music and generally just be geeky together. We are also into pescetarian [me] and vegetarian [him] food, local wineries [me] and breweries [him] and movies with high body counts [me] and movies that make you laugh for days after [him].
Are you a gamer, a rather voracious reader, a playlist addict or show binge watcher? GREAT! Let’s be friends! Follow me all across the internet for maximum internet stalking points:
