I am a mom first, to two beautiful girls. My oldest is 14 and a freshman this year...I am still not sure how that happened so fast! My youngest is 12 and in the 7th grade. They are as different as night and day, My oldest is a sporty girl, a deep thinker, a reader, a writer and an old soul. My youngest is talkative, outgoing and gregarious. She loves to dance and perform, and be creative. I have been a single parenting parent for the last 9 years when my husband, my college sweetheart, suffered an accident that has left him in coma since then. I volunteer in our community and belong to several philanthropic organizations, including a mother/daughter one. I have an online store where I sell fabulous supplies and luxury trims, boutique goods and whimsical jewelry. .
Paper Crafts, Cardmaking, Sewing, Jewelry Making ( I make jewelry from reclaimed vintage findings, Swarovski Crystal, and Vintage Buttons), Holiday Crafts, and Mixed Media. I love all things vintage, and if I have a common theme in the things that I make it is that they all either contain something vintage or are vintage inspired. If it is paper arts, I probably have thrown some vintage sheet music or old wallpaper in the mix. If I am sewing I am probably trying to salvage the remains of some vintage textile I have drug home. Some things speak to me right away, and others stay with me for many years before they find their voice.
