~ I'm a Child of God, a wife for 49 years, Mother of four grown children, & G'Ma of four.
~ I'm 'Mom' to one large German Shepherd, Koenig, [who went to doggie Heaven in March 2015]
& one pretty small Yorkie Terrier rescue, Pepper.
~ I'm a classically trained musician. I developed the music program for a private school in
Seattle while putting my husband through the University of Washington Medical School
~ I've taught piano and, home-school music/choir while rearing & home-schooling my four children ~
~ when my doctor told me to stop all that for health reasons. It was time to for a change ~
~ I've enjoyed painting, photography and knitting since childhood. My website has given some
of my handcrafts a home since I need to spend a lot of time 'on my bed' or reclining
~ I've adapted to that, finding a way to do more things while lying down ~
~ Thank you for stopping by! Thank you for buying handmade, hand crafted art ~
~ when buying from an artist/maker, you are buying more than just an object ~
~ you are buying hundreds of hours of failures & experimentation ~
~ you are buying days, weeks & months of frustration and moments of pure joy ~
~ you aren't just buying a thing ~ you are buying ~ a piece of my heart ~ a part of my soul ~
~ moments of my life ~ most importantly, you are buying me more time to do what I'm passionate about ~
Soli Deo Gloria!
