About me

Introduction It's all about family for me. I have 2 beautiful energetic kidlets, my husband and I operate a family farm (Washington State) which also manufactures a specialty food line. You will find him out in the orchards and asparagus fields from March until October...and me...well...I'm in the chocolate factory 12 months of the year. All of this, of course, is when we aren't chasing our 2 pre-teen kids around...both are involved in sports, and are our complete universe. I started paper crafting in the late 90's...but have been in chocolate and gift design now since 1986. I love what I do...and find the late night creative time is a perfect way to unwind after a stressful day. I'm spoiled because I have ribbon and gift packaging reps at my fingertips and work with ad and promotional reps daily, so ... I get a little help from my "work" friends! I am tickled to say, the online connections I've made through this wonderful hobby have made this creative journey a joy!
