"Níor dhéin na Dheithe dearmad ar dea-bheart riamh!"

Welcome to the journal of Ingrid Houwers, better known as GrayWolf, my little place to write about the day-to-day things that go on in my life. Almost all the entries I write are publicly viewable, so don't worry about missing out on bits and pieces if you're not on my friendswatch-list. Not being on it doesn't mean I don't like you either, so no worries.

Who am I? I'm a linguaphillic self-taught jack of all trades, master of none. Did art academy for a year and decided to begin for myself. I now have a running business is custom corsets and clothing, drawings/painting/designing, jewellery crafts and taxidermy. Now before everyone runs screaming saying I am an animal killer I would like to inform you that I only work on animals that have died a natural cause. Conservation, Preservation and Education is my cause.

But the main thing I love doing is being outside, especially on my little spot in the woods. I love to take long walks in the woods and I can sit there for hours. I usually take my sketch-book along with me in case I see something that I would like to draw. These days it's not very rare if you see a fox getting a drink at the lake when the evening settles in.

I'm trying to figure out where all my friends are on a map - please add your location so I know how to plot my plans for world domination.
