This is more of a mini bio. After working for almost 40 years my husband gave me the greatest gift, early retirement.
Starting work right out of high school in the early 70s for a large company in graphics, drafting and technical illustration, it was wonderful. I worked with many talented people that shared their skills and techniques with me. I was fortunate to learn how to make animations (draw and ink animation cells), a variety of illustrations, build 3D models and prototypes. You name it if there was a presentation, book, training or display needed we were there.
Over the years, I was blessed to receive fantastic training and in the late 70s went on to doing many of the same things I had been doing but now by computer. Wow what a change building 3D models and creating animations by computer, it was more than fantastic, but I missed the contact with the mediums ink, glue, paint, paper so I turned to…

Wow what a change building 3D models and creating animations by computer, it was more than fantastic, but I missed the contact with the mediums ink, glue, paint, paper so I turned to crafts. I cannot say enough about how creating helped my thought process both at work and in life; it is stimulating and opened my mind to so many possibilities. You name the craft and I am ready to try it out wood turning, stone cutting for jewelry, needlepoint, crewel, sewing, decorative painting, beading, rubber stamping, crochet, knitting, etc. I tend to prefer making smaller items, since I am more likely to finish them but willingly jump in with both feet on large projects.

About twelve years ago I found myself helping many people with computer issues well long story made a little shorter I was offered a position with computer support, jokingly referred to as the dark side of IT (Information Technology). This gave me a chance to help people with computer problems and learn still more about computers and what can be accomplished with them. Now sometimes I flesh out some of my ideas using the computer and it is very useful when creating booklets, pattern packets or adding a special label to an ornament.

Thanks for taking time to read this.
