About Me

I am the wife of a now retired officer of the United States Navy. I am also the mother of two beautiful women, and caretaker of one very large fluffy cat. I am an artist with a degree in design. Through the years, I have had the pleasure of working as decorator, designer, draftsman, and illustrator. I love the arts; museums, the theater, concerts and the ballet. I enjoy working with washi, embroidering, beading, light sewing, cooking and gardening. I work in mixed media, creating collage and fabric crafting. When I have the time, I enjoy painting. Water color and acrylics are my favorite medium.

Favorite Color

I haven't a favorite color. I love all colors. If I were to have to choose, I suppose it would be in the hue of blue.....and from there I would lean toward robin's egg, periwinkle or cornflower

robins egg periwinkle
cornflower blue chip

I'm always in need of:

old vintage charms

off white, pink and red buttons

old antique / vintage buttons

2 sided ribbon and ric rac

embroidered trim

vintage high dress costume jewelry

dresdens, doilies and vintage “scrap” and specialty papers

vintage ephemera

brads, bows, pearl beads

paper flowers

distress ink and stamp pad

old tins - any size and shape

pressed paper / paper mache containers

nature (shells, pine cones, acorns, nests, etc)

holiday embellishments

old photos, slides, negatives

those plastic 3 pronged pizza lid spacers (the thing they place on top of the pizza to keep the cheese from sticking to the lid of the box)

Thank you for stopping by


Have a beautiful day

Thank you for all your love, offer of help, thoughts and prayers over the past month since our fatal earthquake. My family and we are all OK as is our home. A few possessions broken but they do not matter. Our car was caught up in the CBD but we got that back yesterday YAA. Our son lost his best friend as falling masonry came down on him as he ran from his place of work.I have links on my profile page to photos and news and on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1315544413 ♥♥♥☺♥
