Hello, my name is Jill. I live in California. I’m 46 years old. I’m a tea drinking workaholic, gummy bear addict and craft supply collector (hoarder) I have three wonderful and very sweet sons. Our birthdays are all back to back and just about a week apart from till the next. Jake turned 18 on May 11th. Ryan will be 23 the 21st of May. Next my birthday is the 27th And finally, Bret will be 29 on June 4th. His due date was May 10th. Technically he was supposed to be a May baby too. And no, the May birthday thing was not planned. Either was all of us having four letter names :)
I’m married my second time around to Jeff. We have been together for 8 years - married for 5 years. Jeff has two adult children I adore! I have two dogs. Kane & Apollo are German Shepherds. They are brothers from a separate litter. Kane is 4 and weighs 126 lbs. Apollo is 3 years old and weighs 96lbs. They’re incredibly smart and loyal dogs!
We have a 10 year old Cosmo goldfish named Potato. He was a tiny little brown colored goldfish my youngest son won at the fair many years ago. Potato is now beautiful orange and white and about 6-7 inches long. If you want to know how to properly care for your goldfish, just ask. I’ve had fish on and off since I was elementary school age, and have learned a lot over the years by trial and error. We have had many wonderful pets over the years. Lizards, bunnies, rats, hamsters, parakeets and a hedgehog.
Things I enjoy in my free time:
Shopping (retail therapy) Reading, baking, gardening, mixed media, acrylic painting, watercoloring, paper crafting and organizing.
Projects using scrapbook paper, mixed media supplies and a canvas = my happy place.
I own my home based business. It keeps me quite busy. I’m also a professional photographer. I used to own my own small based photography business until my health issues made it more challenging to keep a schedule. I’ve been working from home for about 8 years now.
I have a plaque in my bathroom that says “Don’t wish for it. Work for it.”
One of my favorite jobs was when I worked for several years for the well known pediatrician Dr Sears. Using his philosophy and my own 20+ years of experience, I wrote the daily nutritional tip for his FB page, along with answering questions that parents had regarding all areas of parenting from nutrition, exercise, sibling rivalry, discipline and baby care.
Crafts I enjoy : Drawing Watercoloring & acrylic paints Photography (my last career) Altering anything- mixed media Junk journals (been collecting items and STILL have not made a complete book yet)
