Greetings, friends! I am an author, photographer and freelance designer, married over 30 years, mother of six amazing children, and grandmother of two. Every day is a gift from God and I am blessed to live in such an amazing world. I am even more blessed to be able to hang out with the Creator of the Universe, enjoying what he made and learning from him.
My creative interests are writing, photography, Photoshop, jewelry making, textile design, art, watercolor, calligraphy, baking, cake decorating, sewing, quilting, pattern design, embroidery, tatting, knitting, crochet, gardening, woodworking, paper crafts, book making, music, acrylics, beading, weaving, and others.

About the banner photo: The bead box belonged to my grandmother. She loved making miniatures and used the beads in her work. I value her box of beads highly. From time to time the banner will change but it will always be a tribute to my dear grandmother.
