Apologies. I am still trying to figure out all the bells and whistles on WordPress and how to get this page how I want it. I don’t think that will ever happen.

I’ve been blogging here for 5.5 years.

And still it’s lacking.

But for those of you here and reading. Thank you.

When I was a little girl I was alone a lot. My parents were 42 & 50 when I was born so when I was 10 in 1977 and staying up until the National Anthem came on the little black and white TV with foil on the antenna, they were sleeping.

My older brother had encyclopedias and I loved to read. I loved to devour knowledge.

His encyclopedia set had a kid set with it and that set had a craft book. It was the best book I ever read and I think I made every single thing in that book. And I think this is where my love for art and crafting came from.

Still to this day there is a fire in me to draw and paint and crochet and make things.
