I'm 45 going on 97...less than 1/2 way done, got lots to still do!
I’m from Minnesota. I’m Swedish, Irish, a bit of German and a frappe of a few other Northern European countries. I have 2 daughters. Tabitha Ann was born in 1987. Jazmin Celiia was born in 1990. I lost my daughter Natalia Tatiana to a heart defect; hypoplastic left heart syndrome in 1989. Tabitha had my grandson sweet Oliver in 2004.

I work in a small plastic injection molding plant (about 9 miles from home) as the Document Control administrator (chick) and industrial photographer. We are ISO certified so I do paper work…lots of paper work. I’ve worked here since 1999.

I was handfasted to my sweet soul mate on the 9th of June 2007. He found me on the Internet on www.loveaccess.com cool huh? An Internet relationship that actually worked! We’ve…

I was handfasted to my sweet soul mate on the 9th of June 2007. He found me on the Internet on www.loveaccess.com cool huh? An Internet relationship that actually worked! We’ve been together officially since November 2006. His name’s Jim…and he’s dandy! I married him on Halloween 2011!

I learned how to quilt in 1990 while on bed rest trying not to have my youngest daughter Jazmin too soon. A in home nurse who helped me with my 3-year old Tabitha taught me. I made Jazmin’s bunny quilt totally by hand since sitting at my sewing machine wasn’t an option at the time. Since then I’ve made about 60 quilts of assorted sizes, mostly patchwork a few appliqué’. I work full time now, my sweet babies are adults and I’m a grandma now but the quilt bug raises its pin prickly head almost daily still. I quilt mostly for charities: God's Tiny Angels in West Virginia, Heart Babies in Minneapolis...I want to give...make someone warm, comfortable, feel OK for the moment even if all around them is chaos. :) Must be a momma thing, I want everyone to be happy and OK!

For fun my girls (when they have time, now that they are grown) and I scrap book, collage, decoupage, paint (acrylic) sketch, sculpt, well just about anything fun and crafty. We go for nature hikes throughout the year to experience the changing of the seasons and enjoy the plethora of local flora and fauna when allergies and biting insects don't stop us. In the summer the kids, mine and whose ever’s are around, make my current vehicle into an ART Car (truck, SUV, whatever) For silliness we enter it into whatever art car parade we can get to. Oh to be that flamboyant, + it seems to REALLY irritate some people for some reason… go figure!?!?!

companion animals: Lilith Licks the Glass (Leopard Gecko), Helga Hiss A-Lot (Blue Tongued Skink, Akmed I’m a Dinner Jacket (Kenyan Boa), Shamus McSucky (Sookee) the Miniature Schnauzer, a plethora of fish, a plague of rats...
