About

I'm creative, you're creative.

I grew up in an Air Force family, in a family with 2 parents, 2 siblings, and one dog which was always a boxer named Bootsie. (Bootsie I, Bootsie II, Bootsie III etc!) Growing up military meant that I didn't have enough time in one place to form solid friendships and I spent a lot of time alone when not in school, doing crafty things like embroidery and painting, or playing/practicing the piano.

I can look back now and see the path I navigated in the last 50 or so years, and frankly, I wouldn't change a thing - I've been on a journey and it's mine, with all the ups, downs, and turnarounds.

6 years ago I said good bye to Chuck as he stepped into eternity. The last year with him, when we battled his cancer, was the most difficult year of my life. I had no idea what direction my life would be taking! My entire focus for 30+ years had been home, family, and church.

During those years I'd been expanding my arts and crafts experience to quilting, more painting, and beading. I began to make jewelry out of all the beads and crystals I'd collected over the years, and eventually realized that if I didn't start selling some of them, I'd have to quit making jewelry if I wanted to be able to get through my studio amidst all the totes and boxes of quilting supplies and beads!!


Today I'm living in my remodeled, colorful home, complete with my own office/art studio! I call it Patience Home. I am one woman, with 2 dogs and a cat. The original 3 bedroom ranch home I've lived in since 1981 has become a 3 bedroom home PLUS an apartment at the west end of the house (where I live).

Patience Home is a Bed and Breakfast under normal circumstances, but I continue to make one of the rooms available for women in need. (and yes, I actually serve breakfast!)
My handmade, original designs are the creative expression of my life as it is today - my spirit is communicated in my work, and passed on to you.

Frequently asked questions

How do I place a custom order?

If you look at my etsy shop, the left margin contains a lot of information which includes a blue "REQUEST CUSTOM ORDER" button. If you click that, you'll get a request form pop up. Write down all the information about your custom order request and click send. I will respond with a price and other pertinent information. UP TO THIS POINT, YOU HAVE MADE NO COMMITMENT OR SENT ME ANY $! In my reply to your request, I will include the price, at which time you can choose to go ahead with the purchase or not.

Custom and personalized orders

If you have any questions at all about a piece, or would like to see additional images please contact me. I can customize a piece that is listed with a different chain, or no chain at all, or add additional charms to a necklace. Just ask and I'll see what I can do!
