About

My first craft that I sold for sale was a loop potholder when I was in 4th grade. By 8th grade I was knitting slipper socks, gluing matchboxes and tiles together and making tissue paper wreaths for Christmas sales. The catalyst for this enterprise was my mother who wanted to keep five kids busy and some very creative Girl Scout leaders.

During college and after, I sewed many of my own outfits. Part of it was necessity and I loved creating something new.

I married a career Navy man and had two children. My husband was very supportive, he even wore the Daddy & me outfits I made for him and my young son - what a trooper.

Then a few years ago, my assistant began making jewelry and selling it. I was mesmerized by the beautiful stones, colors, textures and sparkle. I jumped in body and soul and when laid off in 2009 it became my sole creative focus. What fun I'm having, and what terrific people I have encountered along the way....customers, teachers, artists.

I think my proudest moment was when my granddaughter selected a bracelet I made for her to bring to school for show and tell. I hope you will "show and tell" your purchases as well.

P.S. - I just bought that granddaughter her first pop-bead set and loop potholders can't be far behind : )
