I'm famous!

I'm hoping that a lot of you are finding this blog due to the article in the Sunday Gazette (Schenectady, NY) today! I was so thrilled that the reporter, Elysia Nest, was willing to write a story about me. And having the photographer over was a lot of fun.

If you want to see the article you can find it here.

There's also photos online that aren't in the paper, you can see them here.

A summary:
"Brigette Zacharczenko is passionate about all things creepy-crawly. The 19-year-old Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake high school graduate turned college zoology major, in fact, can’t ever recall a time when the outdoors and its myriad inhabitants were not the focal point of her days and nights. She has gained international attention and has become a favorite among area insect enthusiasts for her ability to replicate a variety of critters by using crafting techniques her grandmother taught her as a child, including sewing, cross-stitch, knitting and crochet"

That last line is partly right - I only use machine and hand sewing to create my creatures, but I *did* learn all those other techniques and use them now and then for things for myself.

I love that, "international attention", hehe!

I'm going to go bounce off the walls now.
