I live in the Sonoran Desert and love a good dust storm followed by a cleansing rain. I have lived in the Arizona desert (Phoenix area) for most of my life.
If possible please use real postage stamps instead of a metered strip because I love to use cancelled stamps in my art. THANKS :
I love to read good stories. I especially like the science fiction of Isaac Asimov, Anne McCaffery, and Orson Scott Card. I also like historical fiction.
I like to do crafts! I have had some kind of needle in my hand since the first sewing needle was given to me by my mother when I was nine! I learned how to bead when I was in 6th grade. I love seed beads and am just getting back into bead embroidery and silk ribbon embroidery. I knit and crochet. I love to sew, aprons, quilts, toys, clothes... I make books and journals. I love to alter altoid tins. I make little photo albums to put inside them. I love to read.
My Family: I am married and have 3 grown children who all live in different states. Most of our travels are to visit each other. We have two dogs, a mutt and a wolf-dog. There is a family of cotton tail rabbits that live in our back yard along with variousd birds including hummingbirds and roadrunners.
