“Mysticism is what keeps peoples and adventures alive. Logic too emphatically embraced is what undoes the mind.” ~G. K. Chesterton
Hey! Welcome to the Tomboy Tales, I’m Rochelle, the tomboy. South Dakota born-and-bred, my misadventures began at a young age. My mom liked to dress me in skirts and other cute things while my dad let me tag along while he worked on trucks and on fishing trips. Much to my mother’s dismay, as soon as I was old enough to dress myself jeans became the item of choice and getting me into a dress was World War III. I have a hunch my father just chuckled at these antics.
Not much has changed for this grown-up girl, although I do wear dresses voluntarily and paint my toes on occasion I still prefer denim and jangling earrings. My day job finds me playing with dirt and chainsaws in the woods .
I love creating things whether it’s in Photoshop, the wood shop or with a sewing machine. My creative endeavors lead me all over the place as do my adventures and often my creating and adventures feed each other. A good adventure is a good as an evening spent crafting. My basement is filled with backpacks, bikes, and backcountry skis. If I’m not creating something, I’m probably out exploring with my husband, Jake, and our three dogs.
Welcome to my adventures and I hope you enjoy the ride! Feel free to drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you!
