Tracy Weed's Profile
I come from a long line crafters. My great grandmother was a dress maker in the early 1900s. Her daughter, my grandmother, was the queen of crafters. She sewed, she knitted, she was a floral arranger extraordinaire...to the point where she even grew and dried her own flowers for her arrangements. I remember as a child being fascinated by her walk up attic, which held thousands of treasures...hundreds of yards of fabric, little tiny vases bought at tag sales for her flower arrangements, a dazzling array of buttons...I could get lost up there for hours. To me, it was paradise. To my mother, it was a lot of junk to get rid of when my grandmother died. I still remember coming home from school one afternoon to see boxes flying out the attic window. Apparently, Mom had gotten tired of walking up and down three flights of stairs.
The floral arranging talent was passed on to my mother, who can make an arrangement...
