About Me

I am crafty person from way back. Sewed my own doll clothes. I learned to knit in the 4th grade. I've been quilting, sewing & scrapbooking lately. I had been a sales rep for an arts & crafts, Doing that gave me quite an accumulation of books & supplies. I've Tole painted, stenciled & cross stitched. You name it, I've tried it. I'm an avid gardener. But I don't like weeding! I like flowers and herbs. My favorite flower is the pink rose!
I AM NOT A FLAKER. If you don't get my package...it got LOST. Email me asap!!!

About Me

I was born in Canada but I grew up in Columbus, OH. Went to school there [OSU], got married there, had 3 kids there and moved to Delphos in 1983. Downsized our lifestyle & love the country life. I've had a variety of jobs over the years, permanent & part time jobs; outside sales, cashier, office manager, administrative assistant & graduated in June of 2011 with my Associates in IT Networking. Retired and keeping busy with my blog and all those projects that have been waiting to get done!. I go to Yoga classes twice a week and work out with a great group of gals three times a week. I'm the treasurer of the local Art League [DAAG]. I teach Quilting 101 & Sip-Create Classes, http://delphosareaartguild.com/

Favorite Music

I like a bit of everything. Country, Pop, Jazz, Contempory & Rock.

Favorite Books

Listened to all of Harry Potter. Si-Fi. I esp like historical type of books. Biblical times, Elizabethian, Egyptian etc. Read the Hunger Games & the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo. I've read a lot of Oprah's Picks. Anything Wayne Dyer & inspiring.

Favorite Movies

Everything Star Trek, James Bond & oldies. We watch movies on tv mostly when we do. Foreign films are great! We mostly watch old movies on tv.

Favorite Crafts

Right now I'm really into scrapbooking, Knitting & Quilting. I like bright colors esp pink & lime green. Really like all shades of green. I'm not really into Christmas themes but I love Snowmen. I like Asian type fabric & prints, Amy Butler, Civil War prints & all Moda. like artsy creative kinds of things. Not so much the project as the challenge. I love to learn new techniques and apply them to what I'm working on. Just send me whatever colors you like! I'm working on knowing more about making ATC's & mini-zines.

Collections

I love Kawaii, postcards from all over, stickers, charms & kitchy stuff.

I love Halloween and the colors black, lime green & purple together. Love the "Day of the Dead" stuff. It's all so artsy looking.

I love to travel.
I collect postcards and "floatie" pens from all over.
