Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I am a  40 something that loves to craft. I do everything from quilting, art quilts,wood burning, sewing,stamping, pottery, decoupage, soap making, candy treats to painting,art glass and really good at detailed stencils. I have learned to crochet and knit a bit and cant wait to get better. Felting is my new thing. Too cool really.I am a trained chef, I love to paint, fabric is my passion and carve wood to detailed stencils Crafting is just awesome and Crafting does the body and mind well. I love to craft and share with others. We are living at the beach and totally love it and it inspires me everyday and YES I DO pick up seashells and craft them into works of art Wink I will say I am a total Jill of all trades and Masters well none as we always have room to learn!

I AM A PIRATE 200 years to late! I am a Mermaid lover. My bath and bedroom is all mermaids, Pirates and ocean..NOT THE CUTE ones but the real looking art like ones..Beautiful and mystical!

I love Useful things and even the SOCK MONKEY hehehehe love them so much!! Poppets and Sock Monkeys RULE! Make me happy send me a full size sock monkey or poppet and I will all but love you for life!!

I love my Kurieg machine green mountain, my fave thing in the world is KENDER BUNEO bars. OMG yummo! I love Mexican, Island food, Thai, to name a few. I love veggies but am a total meat eater Smiley I think that HOT IS great and cook a lot with peppers.

We grow a garden every year and can and put up things for the winter to show the kids you can do it w/o the grocery store, healthy, and just wonderful memories with them to see from seeds to the table. we have a big herb garden too Smiley

 I have a 8 year old granddaughter and a 4 1/2 year Grandson. My granddaughter Alana lives with me and loves to craft too.

I am a Very young "Lolly" (grandma)...I am grateful for my Lil Alana she is the apple of my eye...
Houston is my little man..he took his first steps to ME 03/27/09..

Now, I  ride my motorcycle . You have NEVER seen a motorcycle in the parking lot of Psychiatrist LOL Wink Well, next time you drive past one look..If you do bet it is the shrink riding it Wink Drive like to know I can a fast as hell supercharged cali special mustang GT convertible I have a need for speed but use the CC as the police are pathetic here LOL. We are divers, fish and hunt at the same time I am a girly girl "preppy" for the most part.  

I am a green girl when I can and don't mind things being up-cycled as long as they are clean and free of smelly yuck! My granddaughter live with me and we just learned she is allergic to a lot of things to include smoke. If you are a smoker inside I will not be able to partner Sad If you smoke outside and wash your hands as soon as you come in then the tar stuff will not transfer. Please don't use febreeze to cover items.

  I tend to be very chatty in the threads. I do PM but not as much as chat in the threads. Please dont take offense if I am not PM you several times a day type of thing. I jump in and out all day.

I have a HUGE Pinterest and would LOVE anything that you can make that is in the boards. I have a ton of things I love and love to make so we can always do a personal swap. If you don't see it in my pintrest just ask anyway I might not have gotten around to it ROTFL...I love to add to my Pinterest daily but only remove if I receive so I have a boat load of things...

I am just an all around American girl who just refuses to grow old and will do it kicking and screaming and not gracefully. I love life and live to craft an they just go hand in hand in my little piece of paradise!

Meet our Family Smiley
 These are the great loves in my life.

 My grandkids Houston and Atlanta w/ Buster our 16 year old dog
