I am a researcher for a non-fiction author & proud Auntie to three, two 9yo twin nephews & a 7yo niece, who live right around the corner from us in a tiny town in the hills of western Massachusetts. I’ve been married to Rick, my best friend, for 22 years & have known him for 37 (we got married exactly, to the day, 15 years after we met). I love gardening (veggies, herbs, & masses of perennials), sewing (clothes from vintage patterns for me, doll clothes for my vintage Barbies, Tressy, Dawn et al for my niece to play with), reading (especially science fiction, science fiction romance, romance, all kinds of history), & working out when my bad knee lets me (really! I love working out!).
I’m a paper scrapper - I work so much on the computer, between doing research & layout & design, that I need to get away from it & work with my hands. That said, I do all my journaling & captions on the computer & then print them on paper to add to the scrapbooks. I finally got a color inkjet printer again so I am playing with creating stickers & filler cards to add to the scrapbooks but I don't know how much of that I'll do. I'm also very long-winded & have trouble writing short responses to anything. ;-)
