About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Loving what I do, doing what I love at BarberryLane on Etsy!
Location Chicago suburbs, Illinois
Introduction I'm Sandi a retired artist, although artists never really retire. We live in the Chicago suburbs--out where there are critters, but still lots of traffic. Our house is small by today's standards in a lake communityl--we never sized up-and now are thankful in our retirement not having to take care of more. I'm hoping to share some interesting topics and years of DIY knowledge with you. Do 'things' encumber or enhance our lives? Can we find new uses for those things we simply can't part with,~~~ I have four generations of 'things' to share with you~~~ here and in my Etsy Shop---BarberryLane. So Smiles, and Welcome to Somethings OLD, NEW, GREEN, to REDO our lives.
