Now, after working professionally for 15 years, I'm happy to be a work at home mom to two beautiful teenage girls.

Etsy has given me and so many others the opportunity to share with the world beautiful, handcrafted items that inspire and touch our hearts. So thank you for stopping in and sharing a moment with me and remember to always, always, live your life fully in the moment and to appreciate the people and things that are important to you.
