About Me

*Violinist and author

*Transplanted from TN to Florida 2013

*Love to kayak

*Pet owner/lover

I’ve been crafting and teaching for (cough, cough) many years. I took a break while raising 3 children by myself, because I wanted to be sure my focus was on them. Moms, you know what I mean. Anyway they went off to college and beyond, and I settled back into crafting.

I change craft projects all the time, as i suffer greatly from shiny object syndrome. Right now I do a lot of realistic oil painting, a little ink/watercolor work, and lots of greeting cards. see update below Two years ago I was stuck on jewelry making and clay designs. Whatever I do, I do it like the world’s going to catch on fire if I don’t craft!

Besides crafting, I’m an author of several books. You can see my Amazon Author page here.

I’m married to a wonderful man who doesn’t mind the table being piled up with paints, stamps, ink, and dies. He doesn’t even complain when I get paint on our new furniture. Thank goodness!

About Stampin’ Up!

Update: I guess the Stampin’ Up life wasn’t for me. I’m still mulling it over…. I realized I only have X hours per day, and that’s not enough to do everything I want to do. I want to focus on family, pets, and painting. So sadly, I let SU go. I am leaving the few posts up that have how-tos and product links; hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy them.
