My passion has always been about COLOR! I wear color and my house lives and breathes color. Following a close second behind color, is SPARKLE! I love beautiful, bright, shiney, glittery touches. Mix these two elements together, and I am done! I have to have color and sparkle in my day. (yes, it is true, I wear eyeliner that is glitter; my husband purchased it for me for Christmas about 5 years ago and I am still hooked on it.)

I absolutely love making wreaths. The Memory Wreaths are wreaths that are made using customer's items. They are items from a collection of theirs or a family member, souvenirs from Disney or trips, just about anything that they want to have displayed and to be remembered; not stored in a box under a bed and forgotten about. Cherished memories to be displayed and I am honored to be able to create a one of kind piece. I am humbled that my customers trust me to handle their cherished memories.

I have 3 children and 2 granddaughters. I was raised in Colorado, and love to fish and camp.

I enjoy my granddaughters immensely. I have been blessed to be an at home empty-nester, so that I can watch my granddaughters 3 days a week. They bring me so much joy! Hailey and Natalie are their names and they are very helpful when I am making a handcrafted item. They will hand me items I need, sort through my drawers (really re-arrange everything in them, so I can't find what I want), straighten my shelves, and "add" something to a wreath that I don't know about, until I pick it up to take pictures and something falls out of it. You will find in my item descriptions, references to them from time to time, when they have inspired me on a particular item that I made.

COLOR and SPARKLE! It was made for you!

I can do custom orders as well. Just let me know your desires. Sometimes a person can get "stuck," on what they want or how they want to express their personality. I help that person find her "Sparkle" and create a one of kind creation. Not one item is ever duplicated. It is as unique, as each person is.
