About Me

Third grade teacher in suburb of Chicago. Started a Creative Journaling group for teachers at my school.

Married late in life. No children - except for a beautiful dog (Dogo Argentino) and a beautiful hairless cat!

I love garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores. Collect sugar and creamers, paper ephemera, and dollhouse miniatures.

In the past, I have traveled to many places around the world. Now I go to Door County, WI several times a year.

Have taken tons of art classes and workshops. Can't wait to retire (2021) and be a full-time artist.

Comment: Thanks for some cute washi! Dish cloths are a great place to start knitting or crocheting. They are small projects that help you get used to holding everything and learning stitches. Even after crocheting for 30 years, I’ll still try out a new stitch on a dishcloth. Good luck with your knitting!!
Response: Thanks for the comment and the heart! Glad you liked the washi:)

Comment: I too love chocolate and am trying to cut down. I use it to reward myself now when I do a task I’ve been putting off for awhile. Although I did have to make fudge today in an attempt to use up some goat’s milk before it goes bad! Thanks for the PC and the note, summer suddenly became fall yesterday with a rather heavy dump of snow:o Hoping it melts! Hope your Sept has started out on a good note:)
Response: Thanks for the comment and the heart. This was a fun swap!
