Mystic Worlds - it's just an illusion of life.
Interests: Geek by day and wizard by night. I'm an avid fan of all things fantasy, including MMORPGs. My newest adventure has taken my love of crafting out of game and into my real life! Visit my handcrafted jewelry shop on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/NomadicEclectic The image used as my blog's logo is one of my favorite digital creations. It combines two photographs of a model a friend was shooting, a waterfall in the Rocky Mountains from his own portfolio and a stock image of a dove.
