Location Seymour, Tennessee, United States
Introduction Thanks for visiting! I am a stay-at-home Mom and a self-taught artist from East Tennessee where I've lived my whole life. I was raised on a little farm in Knoxville where we raised almost everything we needed and learned the value of recycling, reusing and repurposing. I have two red headed beautiful boys that are my greatest masterpieces. I absolutely love animals, especially cats, thunderstorms and going barefoot. I am only happy when my hands are creating something. Oh, yes, and I am an opinionated hillbilly too.
