About me

Occupation Corporate Manager
Location Midwest, Illinois
Introduction Living in a small town you must often look to yourself for entertainment. As a result, I have dabbled in arts and crafts all my life. I have been a seamstress, home decorator, sketch artist, poet, writer, rubber stamper, scrapbooker, hobby store owner, soap maker, and jewelry designer. Lately, I have been dabbling in making my own jewelery components. I'm finding there is no end to the creative process when it comes to jewelry making. I couldn't do what I do without the support of my family, from my mom and dad who encouraged me when I was young to my immediate family who puts up with my ever-changing interests. As my family grows, I'm sharing creativity with my grandkids. My grandson told me recently "Tutu, I love coming here - you always have the best crafts!" I feel truly blessed to be living my life the way I want to...doing what I love, and sharing what I do with those I love. It just doesn't get much better than that!
