I'm married to the coolest guy in the world (17 years), have 3 amazing babies (16, 14 & 4 years old), love life in the country, love creating, love learning, and love being a part of this great community of artists called "Etsy".

The Chiken Coop is a work in progress, and I'm really glad you stopped by!
