Currently, I reside in a little town in MN, about 25 miles south-east of Grand Forks, ND. As a decorative painter, I've had 1 book and 9 magazine articles published. This genre kind of put me into rubber stamping, then scrapping, and now digital and hybrid projects. Right now, I'm working on becoming a digi designer. As for hobbies I enjoy cooking/baking, gardening, canning, antiquing, flea marketing, thrift store shopping and dumpster diving. The Victorian era is one of my favorites and I like most anything retro, vintage, or antique. Snickerdoodle is my 16 year old tortoise shell puddy cat. She's been a lifeline for me her entire life. As far as health, I have the usual aches and pains of a 59 year old and have been diagnosed with Clinical Depression, General Anxiety Disorder, and OCD which ALWAYS makes life much more interesting!! I'm divorced with no children, have 1 sibling, and my mom is hangin' in at the age of 94! The most important thing in my life is my relationship with my daddy, God the Father. Am an evangilistic middle-of-the-road conservative, Bible believing person and not ashamed to admit it!
