Shari Dippong's Profile

About

I would love to think of myself as a bohemian hippy type person.... but I'm not. I'd love to be seen as a flower child, green, peaceful artist.... but that's not me either. I'm just a regular person who uses paper plates, just so I can get out of doing dishes. I play on facebook like any other computer savvy girl, and have been known to be addicted to some of their games. Hi, my name is Shari, and I used to be addicted to Enchanted Gardens on Facebook. Ha ha.

I am a stay at home mom, with 2 boys. My oldest son, Gabriel is a fine young man who battled Leukemia for over 3 years and praise a good Lord, is cancer free today. I thank God every chance I get for his health, and that I am able to see him grow and learn like any other normal boy, without chemo, or hospital stays. God is Good.

My youngest son, Gideon is going into 1st grade, and…

My youngest son, Gideon is going into 1st grade, and is a real cutup. Our mantra growing up was "What's that in your mouth? Get it out!" (said in one breath.) He is active and funny, and loving, and thankfully, is getting to the age where he's not just a little goat running around, eating random things, and getting into trouble.

My husband of 11 years, is a real life superman. Before we moved, he worked 10 hour days 6 days a week, usually, at the Post Office delivering mail, walking in whatever weather Cleveland decided to taunt us with. He also acted as a substitute carrier for the Plain Dealer newspaper delivery. I got to keep him company on a Sunday run, and I can tell you, it really was a run. He seriously grabbed 5 or so papers, and ran to the houses. I was amazed that in 2 hours, he never did just walk to a house. He's my sweetie.

This year, we prayed that the Lord would give us an opportunity to live in an area that was not so rough weather wise, and He opened up a job as a carrier in Southern Pines, in North Carolina. It's my husband's dream to live in North Carolina, and now, we're here. We found a great church, and are working on settling in.

I have a BFA in theatre and studio art, but except for the occasional drama with the boys, I'm retired from the acting field. I enjoy teaching crafts much more, and have taught for camps, and after school programs, and have been a Kindergarten Sunday School teacher for many years on and off. I currently teach the crafts, and lead the singing with my sister.

I'm a stop start kind of person, but right now, I'm working at building my craft of Clip on Hair wraps, and Feather Extension crafts. I also like to try my hand at sewing once in a while, and you may see a Tshirt bag or pillow pop up at random times in the shop.

I am thankful for my customer's advice and ideas. I have gotten such inspiration from you. Thank you all.

(small side note- I am always up for considering a trade. feel free to convo me.)
