I am a mom first, to two beautiful teen girls. I married my college sweetheart and was unexpectedly widowed young, so I have raised them as a single mom. I volunteer in our community and belong to several philanthropic organizations. I also own an online business specializing in mostly ribbons and trim. In the pandemic, I decided to go back to school, and am halfway to my degree in medical social work! .
Paper Crafts, Cardmaking, Sewing, Jewelry Making ( I make jewelry from reclaimed vintage findings, and Vintage Buttons), Holiday Crafts, and Mixed Media. I love all things vintage. If it is paper arts, I probably have thrown some vintage sheet music or old wallpaper in the mix. If I am sewing I am probably trying to salvage the remains of some vintage textile I have drug home. Some things speak to me right away, and others stay with me for many years before they find their voice.
I also love podcasts! Armchair Expert, The Moth, My Favorite Murder, Crime Junkie, Don't ask Tig, Smartless, Literally, Dateline, and my daughter's podcast Talk2Me are some of my favorites! Let me know if you have one I should try!
Farmhouse Chic, Antique, distressed style, faded linens, Boho Chic and chipped paint are my jam.
Favorite colors, all shades of grays, orange, robins egg blue, pink, aqua, periwinkle, red, silver, white, teal, turquoise, and black.
Favorite scents...I like "clean" fresh scents, lavender, clean linen, seashore, pine etc.
