Story
Introduction
I was born a crafter always trying to create and design something new or reinvent something that already existed but along the way life happened.   So in order to pay the bills I succumbed to an over 50 hour job, working long hours while raising my two kids.  My creative juices were used for school projects or just trying to get a decent meal on the table for my family.  A few years ago after the house and the college loans were paid it was time for me to get back to what I loved to do, creating and designing.  So here I am the reborn crafter.  I would like to share with you some of the things that I do and I would love to see what others are doing.
