Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
altered (I'm now half man via a stem cell transplant for leukemia Nov 13 2003) mommy (3 fabulous kids) Just celebrated 34 years of marriage to my swell fella!  

We live in a house full of antiques, retro collectables, art, junk, knitting/spinning/painting/collageing/shrine making  supplies/random crap to glue on other stuff/rusty bottle caps, my best 4 legged buddy Izzie, a cute but bitey Lily cat located in Northern Alberta, Canada (land of pickup trucks, oil wells, trees, deer and moose  eating my front yard garden beds, summer light till almost midnight, 6 feet of snow and -40C in a seemingly endless winter....)

I love to travel and have been to Cuba, Mexico, Dominican Republic, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Cyprus, the western United States (Las Vegas!  Portland!!) and down south to Atlanta, Raleigh, Virginia.  I took my dream trip to England and Ireland in the fall of 2011, rafted the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon the summer of 2013 AND Iceland November 2014 (because its so awesome!!) I can add Italy and Malta to the list now-2016; Costa Rica and China 2018

After leukemia in 2003, my priorities have become crystal clear-appreciate your family and friends and do stuff you love....RIGHT NOW!!!  Eat stuff you love, take naps, travel the world, acquire ALL the craft supplies and have FUN!!  I love the Craftster community spirit and spend time here every day!

Please donate to your local blood bank and consider joining a bone marrow registry....it took over 40 blood transfusions AND a stem cell donation from a generous stranger for me to kick leukemia's ass!!!

My Favorite Crafts To Do: mixed media collage, shrines, random stuff, jewelry (mixed media built from scratch), anything involving paper, felting, knitting, simple sewing
Crafts I Want To Learn: spinning is at the top of my list!! crochet, knitting of socks, lampwork beads
