About

Two passions. Color + Babies = Gramsthoughtfulgifts

I grew up (a long time ago!) watching my mom demonstrate her love for me by sewing endless ballet costumes for me---by hand. And before the days of strips of sequins. I spent many hours keeping her company ("helping" her) and being her gopher while she worked for hours on end sewing hundreds (millions??) of individual sequins onto my costumes --- one.sequin.at.a.time. My grandmother also was a patient and gifted artist (carving VERY life-like birds from balsa wood and painting them to perfectly match their natural colors. So I grew to love and appreciate all things creative and crafty as a pretty young child.
My obsession with rag quilts was born of the marriage of two of the biggest passions in my life: color and babies. I've been a color nut all my life; the love of babies and children came later: first, my own; then as a pediatric nurse in a children's hospital; and most recently as the Grammy I've always wanted to be.

Some other random stuff about me:

I adore animals---ALL animals.
I love to travel and explore cultures different from my own.
I am awed and inspired by Nature in all its manifestations - trees, water, flowers, people, clouds, sunshine, animals, lightning, grass. . .
I love spontaneous humor and am quick to laugh...especially at my own silly mistakes.
My most entertaining moments are listening to my 2, 3 and 5-year-old grandchildren solemnly discuss how to solve the problems of the world.
I love games, especially bridge!
I'd rather be creating something for someone else than pretty much anything else. There's not much I find as rewarding as seeing someone happy and excited about something I have made. SO, Etsy and I were sort of made for each other.

    I'm a retired RN (pediatric hospital) from a family with various artistic and creative gifts. I'm pretty obsessed with colors, kids and rag quilts and very happy to have found an outlet for these obsessions. Thank you, Etsy!
