Here I am with my best friend in the whole world, Renee'. It took me thirty-two years to find her! I used to hear the expression soul-mate and I really couldn't get it, then I met Renee`. I believe men and women are just too different to be soul-mates. So, ladies, if you have one out there, it will be a girlfriend.

About Me

My photo
I am fifty-eight years old and a happy empty-nester of three grown children: nearly 26, 33 and 37. My 33 year old daughter is married and gave us our first grandchild, a baby girl named Astrid. I have been married one time for 41 years so far. I am the sixth of eight sisters. I have done some traveling. My restless oldest daughter took me to New York, Paris and London. I love to scrapbook, do needle art, beading, quilt, sew, decorative paint, home decorating and anything else that I can imagine or inspires me after looking at a magazine, HGTV, or the web! I enjoy having internet friends and think of them as modern day pen-pals.

Pretty Maidens All in a Row

Aren't these dresses sweet as can be? There is a whole line of them, six in all.  The best part?  They were just a a little of what came in the paper bag swap hosted by Jessica at  I had a fab partner from New York, Sherry, and she sent me a whole box of amazing things. In a day or two I'll share what I sent in return.  I've had Sherry, , for a swap partner before and she always does awesome art.
