My name is Beth and I live in a small river town in Alabama.(Just recently moved to Tennessee, but still an Alabama girl at heart!) I am a retired first grade teacher and piano teacher. I enjoy classical music and Van Gogh art. Bach, Chopin, Mozart, and Schumann are some of my most favorite composers,. I enjoy reading books that have historical value, books about early English kings and queens, and books that challenge me to think about why I believe what I believe. Vintage jewelry, Christmas ornaments, and old buttons are facinating to me. I love vintage lace and trims. I enjoy crafting, making ATC's, making matchboxes, sewing, making diorama Christmas ornaments, scrapbooking, and papercrafting. Rudolph is my all time favorite Christmas character. My favorite colors are the jewel tones. I feel that I should have lived in another age, this one gets to fast sometimes. I have 5 precious children and a wonderful husband. I also have 2 precious grandsons and granddaughter. We have a cutey Yorkie named Tessa.
I will honor my swaps and will do work that I am proud to send and not just good enough to get by. I do not have a blog. I do not consider myself savvy enough on the computer to do that. I do enjoy personal snail mail and email contact. I just love to craft and create and share in the experience with others. I love to please and for people to be happy with my work. I do not have to have extras to rate a heart. I do love work that has been thought out, cut evenly, neatly done and not just thrown together for the sake of a swap.
