About Me

I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby. After 10 years I quit the day job to pursue my art as a full time passion.

Seriously, I am shocked I have not posted here since August. No real excuses, other than blogging has seemed to have taken a back seat to facebook for me. Although I mainly use facebook for promoting my textile and graphics business, my personal creative outlet has always been here on my blog.
As life marches along, so grows my family. We welcomed a grandson last summer-Joesph Randall--aka Joey, Joe and the kids call him Joe-Joe. My granddaughters and step grandson are now in school, seems like yesterday we were babysitting a 2 yr old and a new baby! They still give nana lots of hugs which I relish because they are growing up so fast!

In less than a week we are headed to Kona, Hawaii, on our annual tropical vacation. As many of you know, this is our favorite spot and we go often. This year we are staying the entire month of April!!
Our kids and grandkids are staggering visiting too, so this truly will be a family vacation. Watch the blog here for lots of pictures!

And also I will (and I promise) to share my garden and creative endeavors more often this year!

Every Saturday
