I'm 51, married to a great guy, a mom and a grandmother of one adorable toddler and one brand new baby girl.
Most people would tell you that I'm generally a nice person. However, I will not be bullied by anyone. I will not engage in any drama. I'm too old for childish games. All I want from this site is to allow my creative side to shine and enjoy myself. I have no hidden agendas.
I live in a busy town in Northern Virginia, very close to Washington, DC. I've lived in this area for most of my life. I love this being close to DC for all it offers, like the Smithsonian Museums, Monuments, and other historical things.
I have a 5 year old Yorkie named Ginger. She's an amazing companion. I also have a 3 year old Pacific Parrotlet named Pekoe. He's a beautiful light blue color.

Handy Manny is my guilty pleasure. I totally love this show! I just love it because it gives kids a positive way of solving problems.
I am not doing much crafting these days, but I am crocheting like a fiend. Most of my blankets are given away as gifts or are donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
