WARRIOR MOM!, Master Soap Crafter, Kitchen DIVA, Classical Vocalist, Composer & Garden Maven!
I'm a life-long crafter. I celebrated my 25th year in 2014 as a professional one-stop-shop event director. I love creating with my hands and designing, catering and managing events.  I've also been handcrafting completely vegan soap and skin products for almost 20 years. My family has suffered from some sort of eczema, psoriasis or severe acne for almost four generations. I love my products and MY skin tell the TRUE story of how well they work. I'm currently pursuing a degree in herbology, horticulture and theology!. I want to expand my knowledge of herbs, plants, seeds and their healing power. As a student of religion I am enjoying the new spiritual roads it has taken me! I now reside in Michigan, Dallas, via California! I have two boys who still reside in Texas and are at college. One pursuing culinary arts the other physical therapy and a seven year old daughter. All of my children are highly intelligent, fun, artistic, devoted with a deep love for humanity and those less fortunate. I've been lucky enough to be their willing student over 20 years of my life. I'm enjoying my life's pursuits with a willingness at 46 to STILL change the world and a desire to leave it a little better than how I found it.
