I think most people would do this but it contains some links to some really great information. If your family is like our family, these days every penny helps.

Thank you so much for the invitation to the community. Perfect timing as I am currently designing "Save The Date" cards and rehearsal dinner invitations for our son's wedding in late December. I may take advantage of all of these experts here online and post a few different styles that I come up with and not tell whom favors each one and ask for opinions.

Work
Occupation
I have had a long and rewarding career working in offices. I was supposed to work as an accountant as I began with my first real job in California working for a wine cooler company, but that changed as God seemed to have other plans for me. I stayed home for many years after my sons were born. Then I did a lot of volunteer work in a pro-life office as well as our church office. Eventually I went to work (helping with book-keeping) for one of the biggest, and certainly the BEST florist in our county. It was one of my dream-type jobs as I was surrounded by beautiful flowers all day. I learned so much from them. I may not be an employee any longer but I'm still a customer. As I ended my time working for the florist, my husband and I were in the process of assisting with the founding of a small private Classical Christian school and I ended up working as the school secretary and the assistant to the headmaster on a voluntary basis as we still paid tuition. In later years it ended up being in exchange for tuition. My handsome husband Ron, was first in the USMC and then an Air Traffic Controller for approx. 23-25 years counting training. He was not a controller in the Marine Corps, he was in Air Recon. Needless to say, I am quite proud of him. Since he thinks 52 is way too young to retire (as he was forced to due to a minor health issue) he is studying for the LSAT and applying for Law School. Again, I'm very proud of him.

Story
Tagline
I am a Child of God, a wife, a mother, and a daughter who is a caregiver for my parents as well as my husband's parents when needed. A job I gladly fill.
Introduction
Happily married for well over 30 years to my darling husband Ron.  We have 2 grown sons ages 26 & 27.  Ron has just retired from the FAA after about 23+ years as an Air Traffic Controller, & active in NATCA, local pres. for the Memphis Center for the last 41/2 years of his service.

We enjoyed assisting in the foundation of Westminster Academy, Inc. here in Memphis where for the first 7 years of the school, I was the office manager and Ron, along with being an ATC, was the JV and Varsity boys basketball coach for 10 years.

For the 18-21 we raised our sons; in addition to the boys, both their school, and our church, (First Evangelical Church) were pretty much our lives. If we add in family and we have the entirety of our existence at that time.  We have now reached the time of life where our sons are moving on and yet, we still have a full nest;  We like to call them our geriatric children.  We are putting an addition on to my parents' home, but also as Ron's mother is in hospice care for end-stage alzheimers,we will spend months at a time with them, assisting in whatever way we are able.

If and when I have time, my passion is creating with paper. I love making cards, invitations of all types, scrapbooks, but I have really fallen in love with the variety of gifts and home decor which can be made by using paper as you primary medium.  I have learned to much by becoming a demonstrator for this wonderful company; Stampin' Up!  I can't put quickly into words how much I have learned and how much I enjoy about all of this.  It has given me such a wonderful way to express myself creatively, when I really thought I wasn't creative at all.  For a little more on my story and to see what Stampin' Up!  is all about please visit my website--- there is no obligation.  You may look all you wish and even learn from tutorials posted without ever buying a thing.  I have my phone number listed and also an email address, if you have any questions, again NO STRINGS ATTACHED.  I am more than happy to answer any questions even if you never purchase an item from me. MY goal is to show others, just as I finally learned, we are all creative, and with companies such as Stampin' Up!; it is almost impossible not to be. suziesplace.stampinup.net

Since my darling husband has decided 51 years old is way too young to retire from all work. ( I quite agree)  He plans to attend law school when his parents no longer need our assistance. Considering that I will be a Law school widow for a few years, I am really eager to set up small groups of people (my house is fine) who would like to make cards, or scrapbooks, or gift items, or home decor, or all of the above.  If you would like to get a group of 3-5 people together, give me a call or email. We can take off running.......suziesplace.stampinup.net    email   suziesplacemail@gmail.com  my phone number is listed on my website.  

Thanks for reading about me and I hope we can get together and create in the future.
Bragging rights
My husband and I have been friends since we were 14 yrs. old went to school together and sat together in church most every Sunday; but we never dated until we were 18 yrs. ole and freshmen in two different colleges in two different cities. We were married at 22 yrs. old & still going strong. We have two wonderful grown sons, who have never been any problem to us growing up, made great grades both in all 13 yrs of private school and college. They have been active with church groups of their age. They are both now at the point of seriously dating two lovely young women whom we love dearly.
