Announcement   I am a 77- year old, senior citizen- who does crafts for pleasure and a little extra spending money. My husband died in June of 2015. It left an emptiness in my heart that will never be filled. I now find this is the one thing that brings some happiness in my life. It keeps me busy doing the things I love to do. I thank God for that.
To some, my work might seem old fashioned- but I feel there are folks out there who might like it. I sure hope there is.

About

I'm 77 years old, I paint and create because it affords me much joy and extra income.

I am a Retired Nurse. Now that I'm retired, and at the young age of 77- I finally have the time to do things I want to do. Things that makes me happy. Most days- you will always find me creating "something pretty" in my shop. My mind is constantly trying to think of new and wonderful thing to create. I love this life, it's one filled with the joy and fulfillment of creativity. I awake every morning with the knowledge that - this will be a good day and I will be using the God- given talent I have, and am so very thankful for.
I have loved creating and painting things since I was very young. I remember in grade school, winning an art contest and that set the wheels in motion.
You will find all kinds of my assorted crafts here in this shop- Something Pretty.
Please take the time to look through the shop and if there's anything you would like done special (just for you) let me know…
