About

I live outside a small town in southern Manitoba. I have been crafting/painting for about 14 years now. I tell my husband it keeps me sane (cheaper then therapy)
My husband, Brad, and I have been married for 24 years and have two sons.
We love to go quadding as a family, hiking, trying new foods, meeting new people etc.
As a part-time job I drive a school bus :)

Why did I get into crafting? Now that's a funny story :) It's all my husband's fault. Really!!

When the youngest was 1 year old we saw an ad in the local paper for a Beginner Folkart Painting Class. Hubby convinced me to go. He thought it would be good for me to get out of the house and talk to adult women once a week. I was a stay-at-home mom and only got off the yard to get groceries. So off I went - and haven't looked back. There…

He thought it would be good for me to get out of the house and talk to adult women once a week. I was a stay-at-home mom and only got off the yard to get groceries. So off I went - and haven't looked back. There have been many times when the crafts were all over the house that hubby was sorry he every told me about that class :)

How I got into crocheting - Was at the post office one day and the lady that works there mentioned that she knits in the evenings while watching TV with her hubby then donates the scarves to charity. What a wonderful idea!! We happened to have a small store in town that had a few crochet hooks and some yarn. Purchased a few things, then went to youtube to find out how to crochet... I had crocheted about 25 years ago, learned one stitch then, so getting back into it wasn't too difficult.

Knitting and I just don't get along... my Grandma tried to teach me to knit when I was little, but I kept loosing stitches, or my piece would be a triangle instead of a square. She always told me it looked great - but by that point her eye sight was failing quickly, and I knew better. Grandma is now 96 years old, totally blind, and still knitting every day. She is my inspiration! I want to be just like her when I grow up :)
