Introduction Purple is my favorite color and ironically - Purple is the Awareness Ribbon color for Fibromyalgia, a chronic illness I lived with for over 18 years. In, March of 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer which had spread to my brain. I am fighting hard to win this battle and determined to beat it. I have a amazing Oncology Team, along with the LOVE and SUPPORT of all my family and friends! I am a Mom to two grown sons, Alex is now 25 and married to Acacia, my wonderful new "Daughter" and the parents to my precious Grand-Daughter Harper, and Brian amazingly is 30 and now lives in San Diego. My boys are the greatest loves of my life. Hubby, me and our two "Pups", Skye and Zeva, two adorable Chiweenies we rescued in 2012, all live very happily in a tiny coastal town in Massachusetts. We lost our dear "Scoutie", a Purebred Dachshund, in April of 2015. I still miss him and will forever cherish his memory. I am an avid card-maker and totally love every minute I can spend in my craft room. It's become my passion, a wonderful way to relax and is my form or "therapy".
Interests Paper Crafting, Card-Making, Rubber and Digital Stamping and coloring with my Copic Markers. I belong to several fun craft groups and enjoy meeting other crafters and trying new techniques and design.
Favorite Movies Dirty Dancing is my ALL time favorite movie. I LOVE the music and the dancing! My favorite classic movie is "The Sound of Music", I know every song by heart!
Favorite Music I love Rock 'N Roll from the 50's on up. I have a Purple Mini iPod full of my favorite tunes.
