I am inspired and energized when I am creating with stamps, paper, fabrics, music, food. I also enjoy reading historical fiction, gardening, worship music, planning events, travel, nature, pets: chickens, dog, cats, having tea in a proper tea pot and porcelain China cups and saucers with sweet friends! My life is founded on my faith in Christ and that relationship and salvation motivate me to be a passionate person, advocate for the underdog with a focus on integrity. I have been married for almost 2 decades and we have 5 children though our oldest is an angel baby in heaven. I value relationship and encouraging others - so I have many amazing friends in my life!
