I work from a studio in my home...it's a short commute! I completely enjoy my life there with my husband, Ron and my son, Rudy...Oh, don't forget the dogs..Cricket and Georgia~and anyone else who may come to visit!
Stop back often, as the creating is happening everyday here! You never know what you might find :)
