dj runnels

                                     When I'm not tearing up a silk sari to make something for my online shops, I'm pedaling along the banks of a river near my home. Trees, nature, leaves, primitive artifacts, old books, exotic textiles ...all weave together to form my life. I'm a bohemian fiber artist, formerly a copywriter / creative director at 5 ad agencies. The creative director years led me to take a more active interest in art than writing, so I set up a fiber arts business, did the art show circuit, then set up shop online. I became a powerseller on ebay, then branched off into Etsy, Artfire, Zibbet, eCrater and I'm best known as the creator of Life's an Expedition yarns, I am also the author of six unpublished novels, some short stories and even some children's books.  Knopf offered me a publishing contract, but that was ten years ago, so I'm guessing they kissed it off.  But, hey, I'm resilient.I eat, think, sleep, paint, write and ruminate all things creative.  If you're on Google+, I would love to share creative thoughts and photos with you.  If I follow you and you wonder why, it's probably because you knit, weave, crochet, do fiber art, ride bikes avidly, dig up old dead relics, work in a museum, give advice about Google+ or you're indescribably witty and/or artistic and I feel inspired by you.  So please add me to circles about fiber art, design, archaeology or ancient history, cycling or health.  But not rap music.  I am not a DJ. It's just my runnels,Owns Life's an Expedition. Fiber artist, yarn maker. Loves cycling, cultures, Mad Men, Game of Thrones.
