"pearl perilous" is my pseudonym. i believe it represents me well. somewhat of an oxymoron, and that's me. i like polite and pretty mixed with spontaneous and haphazard. that's how i operate. i'm married to a rad gentleman who can embrace it and we live in Oregon with our chocolate boy-dog. i'm in my late 20s, never went to college and spend my days dreaming, researching, exploring and making stuff, including a lot of messes. this is where i document that.
