C’est Moi

Hello, Allo, Bonjour. And Welcome.

I am Ashley Noelle. Bored Alice is not really my alter-ego so much as she is my SUPERego. Alice is bored with the look of modern things. She loves old dusty libraries, tea cups, and remembers when postage stamps were lick-able. Here you will find our adventures and co-conspiracies, as well as current projects and loves.

So…who the hell do I think I am…?

Hey, thanks for asking! I am just a nice girl from Iowa now living in THE METROPLEX (dum dum dum) of Texas. The largest landlocked metropolitan area in the United States.

I am engaged to Thom, who is a fantastic blues singer/songwriter/guitar player/dynamo (www.thomdukanband.com) and by day, a doctor. We have an extremely happy life filled with adventures. Together, everything is fun. Even things you’d think would be horrible. We can make them fun. No lie.

I have done some crazy, crazy things in my life. One day I’ll write them all down and you’ll all think I made them up, but it’s all true.

I have a degree in psychology, which I use mostly as a very expensive paperweight. I’d like to change that soon. I have a gift for helping people, problem solving, and creatively and passionately saving the world! I am ambitious and never stop and I never will stop, so don’t even expect failure from me. That is not what I’m about. I am never lazy, so I will always succeed. Truth.

For two years I was a medical case manager working with low income pregnant women and people living with HIV/AIDS. There’s so much more to it than just that. I worked for a broad variety of people with very diverse issues, talents, and needs. I never turned anyone down who needed help, no matter if it fit into my job description or not. I was working for the people, striving for painstaking excellence. Every day, all day long. It was the best job in the entire world and never felt like “work.” I was forced to leave it due to relocating to Texas, but I will never forget what I learned from the people I served.

I have also been a receptionist, switchboard operator, office assistant, and other jobs where you have to have a sweet phone voice and manners out of the 1950s, which I totally have.

I am a writer. I am a jewelry designer/maker. I am a photographer.

I am working on my 2nd novel and am doing my 2nd “photo a day for a year” project. I started a business called Rummage Photography (www.rummagephotography.com) in 2011. I’d like to take your photo.

I’ve been writing on the mighty Internets since 1994 (when I was 14 years-old) and have been making jewelry ever since summer camp when I was 13. I’ve been selling jewelry on Etsy since 2008. Legit, right? I know.

I’m a huge believer in supporting other artists and not being a hater. If you’d like to be featured on my blog, let me know. I’d be happy to help you out, my friend. Can I also get you a cup of coffee? Anything?

Here is my blog where you can see stuff I like, my current jewelry projects, and tiny*FICTION (a term I have coined for my very short stories, which are totally unedited). Anyway, here’s the link: https://boredalice.wordpress.com/
