About Me

I am married with a 10 year old daughter, 2 cats, and a guinea pig. We live in the beautifu, but wet, Pacific Northwest.

I am a craft-aholic. My addiction right now is knitting. But I love all crafts! Anything handmade with love is great in my book!!

I'm also a singer and theatre performer, when I can. I am the owner of a Christmas Caroling Company, the Silverbells Carolers, and have written and performed in a 4 woman cabaret show called The Broads of Broadway. I'm also currently working on writing another cabaret show for a friend of mine and I called Sister, Sister. It'll be a collection of fabulous Broadway and Opera Duets.

My daughter Frannie loves music too. She sings constantly! She loves Littlest Pet Shop, My Little Pony, and Monster High. She is a budding artist too. She draws very well! She loves all things to do with art. She loves all animals and wants to be a zoologist or marine biologist when she grows up. :)

I just received the very cool angel package you sent for the "show off Your Craft" swap. I loved the cap. My daughter and I had a lot of fun wearing it, and putting it on objects in the house. The mermaid is so nice too. Thank you for your kindness. You are a wonderful swapper!
