Tim Hendrickson's Profile

About

I am a former, big rough and tough, all state football player and wrestler who chose a career in nursing. I have been a nurse for 16 years as well a manager for my family's restaurant for 17 years.
I have 3 children, twin daughters that are 26, and a son that is 24. I also have a new grandson born in 2011!
I have always been one to help people, especially in the nursing field. Some of my friends laughed at the fact that the big, tough guy, that they knew was going to be a nurse. It has been a great, fulfilling career.
I discovered crafting in in 2008 and started using a new technique that I invented for hand sewing tote bags. Then a year later I discovered wire crafting. I love working with metal and making my own designs of bracelets and necklaces.

Then I found the beauty in the natural stones and semi-precious gemstones! I really love searching the world for the most beautiful stones and beaded stones to add to my jewelry, it can become addictive for sure. My fiancé has also joined in as she shares my love for the natural beauty also; she is definitely an expert in crochet and knitting and is presently starting to design some earrings for our shop.
Much of my work is dedicated to my daughter who has epilepsy, she started having them out of the blue when she was 16 and now is 26. At the time they started, my daughter was a great track runner in the state of Iowa and also had just got her driver's license, it was such an exciting time in her young life, and that was all dashed.
She continues to have seizures today, about 3 to 5 a month; before we found the right epileptologist, she was having sometimes 3 to 5 a day. Things have gotten better for her and we still continue to hope for the medicine or treatment that will ultimately end the seizures.
Thanks for reading my profile and God Bless to all,
