About Me

Hello all,

I am a pediatric occupation therapist by day working with special needs students from 3 years old to 22 in public school, and an art teacher by night working with adults teaching mosaics, stained glass, paper crafting, mixed media, and fusion glass.

If I am not participating in ocean related activities on my time off I am making something. I am always incorporating art in student activities. I really love functional art.

I loved making my car seat covers in beachy hibiscus, flip flop, boat drink fabric. I also recently made my first quilt. I had to pick the wave and make it like a scallop or like the scales on a mermaid's tail which is what I call it....Mermaid's tale. Wow, not one I would recommend for a beginner. Right now I am working on an outside concrete sea turtle chess board table. I have my friends mosaic one of the squares whenever they come to visit so they will always be part of it. I am having fun making art dolls lately. One of my most favorite pieces of art that I have made is my sea turtle manatee hanging lamp. It is 51 inches long and over my snack bar

I am the luckiest person, living in paradise with my hubby. I also have two adult boy.

bjmonroe rated for CQ: Altered Key Swap-USA on Mar 13, 2017
Comment: I have never received this swap. I was understanding of your mom needing you when she had a stroke but you said this was sent a week ago. I will rerate if I receive this altered key. Rec'd 3/13. Thank you for the altered key. Post marked 3/8, not 3/4 as you marked sent.
Response: I have a tracking number and will research it. If they lost it I will make you another. I always follow through with my swaps. I am so glad the biggest worry in your life is one late swap. I hope no one including yourself ever has a medical emergency. I am very very sorry for your late swap.
