I'm a wife, mother and grandmother living in Missouri, USA. My husband and I have owned a small business in the antique market for many years. I love garage sales, thrift stores and antique auctions.
In my spare time, I enjoy drawing artist trade cards and other small mail art. Besides art, I enjoy gardening, genealogy, photography and spending time with family and friends.
Items coming from me will be from a smoke free and pet free environment.
In the past, I've dabbled in a variety of crafts such as ceramics, crochet, drawing, painting, sewing, and wood crafts. I enjoy making hand drawn ATCs. Most of my work is done with watercolor pencils, color pencils, markers and ink. I really like whimsical art, but do enjoy folk art and other interesting styles.
