We all see them around DeviantArt … they do WONDERFUL things for this community in one way or another … we admire them; we love them; we would LOVE to get to know them a little more … Well now is your chance to see how they are, how they think, how ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL they are!!!
Today we will get the chance to look into Brookette ’s heart … She’s one of the Community Volunteers of DA and she takes care of the Artisan Crafts Gallery … Do you want to peek into her heart??? Well, COME ON!!! Let’s go meet the “human” behind the username!!!
I'm really shy and quiet and I mostly keep to myself when I'm in room full of people. I'm pretty low key and try not to get too worked up about anything.
What do you enjoy the most about your own DA experience?
I love getting inspired by all the great art I see every day. I also really love the community aspect, I've meet lots of great people from all over the world and knowing we all come together here for similar reasons, is really cool.
What brings joy into your life outside of DA?
So many things! God. My husband and daughter. Nature- especially mountains and stars. A really good peppermint mocha from Starbucks. And yarn. Lots of Yarn.
If you could have ONE wish fully granted in life, what would be that one thing you would call "A dream come true"?
I've always wanted to be musical, either being able to sing or play and instrument- or lots of different instruments! I'd trade all my crafty talent for musical talent any day.
What is in your opinion your BEST quality as a human being?
Yikes. I'm quick to know what I don't like about myself...but I guess I'd have to say my best quality is loyalty.
If a time machine was invented and you could travel in time to any period of your life, which one would you like to revisit? Would you try to change anything about that time?
Oh geez...I wouldn't like to, but I really have to go back to about when I turned 18. I'd slap at me in the face and say "Stop. Just stop." And then probably slap me again.
What is your true passion in life?
Knowledge. The more I know, the more I can help others to learn. I really love teaching others and helping them find out what they're good at and how to use their talents. I'm an "idea" person, not really a "make it happen" person, so I love giving others the ideas or the encouragement they need to carry them through.
What occupies your thoughts during most of the day?
Usually something like, "What should I make today?" Then wondering when I'll find time to sit and work on it.
What does "LOVE" mean to you?
Selflessness. I love someone best when I can put their needs ahead of my own.
What is your favorite quote?
I've always liked this one from Hermione in the first Harry Potter book, “Books! And cleverness! There are more important things — friendship and bravery and — oh Harry — be careful!”
