Kris enjoys spending her summers working in her garden, growing everything from beans to herbs to an assortment of flowers; and canning and freezing her bounty. Since retiring as a Registered Nurse, working in community mental health in 2013, she and her husband spend their time driving and camping across the country in their Model A Ford. When she's not on the road she's spending her time in her basement studio sewing. The last two years she's sold her aprons and purses in her local Art Council's Arts and Crafts Holiday show.
