Hello from Wisconsin! We are known for beer & brats, cheese in every variety, the Green Bay Packers, the WI Badgers, country music festivals, WI Dells, farming, and Friday night fish fries. I live in a small town near the state line between WI and IL. I retired from teaching in 2014, after 33 years dedicated to students with special needs. In late summer of 2014, we got the devastating news that my DH of 28 yrs had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I lost him on Easter Sunday. To cope with the grief and loneliness, I renewed my love for crafting and it has been good therapy for me. I have a grown daughter, Heather, age 29, with no grands in sight.
Some of my favorite things are: Colors...all shades of pink and blue, green and yellow, gold and pink combined. Hobbies...paper crafting, learning new crafting techniques, beading, sewing, taking pictures, journaling, playing with old/new fountain pens and ink, gardening (favorite garden flower is a geranium), thrifting, reading,(mystery/suspense) listening to music(country) audio books, podcasts, and spending time with my pets...4 cats and 1 dog. I love social media, esp Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram .
