Menopausal, insomniatic, romantic, left handed,right brained & more than likely a bit ADD. Mother of two whom have left the nest.
I live in a little 90 something bungalow in a Historic district, with a heck of a commute to work (3blocks, all down hill.!!
Share my cozy home with 4 critters.Two dogs-Golden Retriever and Black lab & two Tuxedo kitties. They see fit to let me decorate however I choose and never question what's in the bags I bring home-unless it appears to be edible or squeaky.
The whole blog/art thingy started kind of by accident a couple years ago-it has just grown exponentially!Love it ALL,,women I've met, and trying new things! Not getting rich selling my creations, but again, it has grown exponentially and I have product in several shops in Washington-Too fun!
NOT doing Etsy right now, BUT if you see something you like, let me know, Happy to make something special.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here are a couple of things I made in the workshop this week!! A new cupcake topper-With Vintage Swans that I LOVE because my Dutch Grandmother and my German Grandfather were introduced (pre WWI) at an inn/restraunt/yacht club on the Rhine in Germany called "Der Schwann." Or "The Swan." All very romantic, especially because they were married like 60 years,,,,,and they met in their 30's......Very European for educated families to marry late even in those days....So here is "Der Schwann/The Swan"
Lauren stopped by tonight and picked up her wedding cake topper for her ceremony next month. I was delighted to see her and find out that she and Andrew are performing for the next couple of weeks prior to their wedding at Collectors Choice, here in Snohomish.
Then, after their vows, they are headed to Nashiville to expand together on their music careers. Lauren has an awesome voice and Andrew, well, he plays the piano like an Angel,,I truly don't know if Andrew reads music, or if he is just so gifted as to play by ear. I DO know that he inquired several years ago of my friend Laura to play piano in her Chapel when it was not in use. Andrew is self taught. And a musical prodigy/genius. His musical prose will give your heart delight!!
I am SO happy about their union. I love and admire them both greatly. And I wish them the world in their endeavors!!!
Sarah at: http://mysocalledjunkylife.blogspot.com/ Gave me a blog award this weekend. What was funny was that I was visiting her Etsy Shop on the hunt for some goodies for Christmas crafting (I know, I know). I snagged up some fun stuff by the way!!
I'm not the only one thinking a Christmas Crafting.....maybe it's the Midwest and other ornaments we're pricing at Joyworks!! Nothing like 86 degrees and Glitter!!
Visit Sarah's blog and go see her fun Etsy site as well. But glad I got to her Christmas in July extravaganza first!!!
Camera going back tomorrow, new goodies soon!! (Argghh #$@@#$@#!!!! Dang electronics anyway!)
Today was Amy's Birthday at Joyworks and I gave her a crown I made her. I'm a bit exasperated the new camera that I bought IS NOT WORKING!!! I have to take it back and find out why the battery isn't charging. Geesh! But here is Amy in her Birthday crown. It was a HOT afternoon in Washington State!! Tomorrow and the 4th even hotter!!
"Last night, my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them, 'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependant on some machine & fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'
They got up, unplugged the computer and threw out my wine!
They are SO on my sh*t list!'"
Seemed like a good ideat at the time

Is this a BAD sign?
It's a Full moon tonight and my son brought over takeout Chinese food. Should I take it as a BAD sign that my dog ate MY fortune cookie,,,,fortune and all???
Decided I'd love the Job!
Ever thought about applying for the job to be the one who gets to design the new words that we type into the security code boxes to get our posts through?
I think it would be a whoot! I think my first word would be geebitz or whrylstra or bezanorz.
What would YOU dream up?
