My Story


I had always searched for my creative niche!  I've done many artsy craftsy activities but I grew weary and had to move on after a time with most of them--knitting (Everyone received a funky sweater one Christmas), sewing, crochet, cross-stitch until my eyes turned 45ish, guitar, wreaths, holiday decor...I created stained glass projects for around 5 years but the lead was always scary to me.  I still enjoy working with glass and stone mosaics.

Then I met Cheri!!  Cheri is my inspiration, mentor, and was my upline!  I was so fortunate to teach Cheri's lovely daughters in my middle school chorus classes and when I received the gift of a lovely stack of hand made, drop-dead gorgeous greeting cards from Cheri, I knew!!!  This is what I must do.  So 6 years later here I am.  I STILL love what I do and now that I'm retired after 34 years of teaching music, I just have a lot more time to enjoy this wonderful craft.  Thank you, Cheri!!

I enjoy living in wonderful, sunny Florida after moving from snowy northeastern Ohio in 1974.  I enjoy my wonderful family and friends.  My life is enriched by the lovely stamping ladies I've come to know.  Come stamp with me at my Oasis!  You may host your workshop here or come to my Open House Stampin' Sunday for fresh ideas, fun, fellowship and.....chocolate!!
