But I also love to garden, to read, to hike, to work with Akita Rescue, to raise funds for Alzheimer's Research in honor of my late grandfather. I'm my family's resident geneaologist. I do Find A Grave on weekends. I'm a member of both the Daring Bakers & the Daring Cooks. I've worked in landscaping, I was in the Marines, I've worked in a hobby shop, I've worked in HVAC, I went overseas and through it all, I created with my hands.

All that is what goes into my pieces, each one unique, each one lovely in its own way and each one a piece of wearable art created by my hands.

All items created in a smoke-free home. This is a pet friendly home- cats, dog, fish. All items and materials stored in pet free area.
