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 am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me.
I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

nope, I can't call this summer lazy by any means~ Hubby Jim and I fit the term "tweeners" to a tee. Taking care of both your adult kids and your parents. Jim's parens have had multiple health issues the last few months. Our son in law was very ill with ulcerative colitis and ended up with major surgery. He is on the mend now and will make a full recovery. We have been babysitting our 2 little granddaughters a lot to help the family out, but I still manage to juggle the day job with my creative side for my website, but at times I feel stretched thin. Some things I had to let go--my cottage garden is in a state of "jungle" at the moment. I have this HUGE Sally Holmes rose bush that is begging for a major deadheading. The guest room redo is waiting for me to finish, and our garage is stuffed with our son's belongings as he looks for another place land when college starts in the fall. But not complaining, life is good.
I thought today I would share some recent photos my daughter took (also her photographer) of these precious "midgets" as my other half lovingly refers them to. Sometimes they are also his "rug rats" LOL
