In the 60,s I sold the daisy chain necklaces, bracelets and rings using glass beads. In the 70,s I sold cross stitch and macrame' wall hangings. In the 80,s it was baby quilts.
I cross stitched for a woman who published books for cross stitching. Also did sewing for a company that sold activities for Alzheimer's.
I have taken a few classes in bead work while living in Florida and have given some classes too. Because I love glass beads and a slave to beads I took a class in Lampwork beads so you will see some of my hand made Lampwork beads here in my store. I enjoy knitting and felting too. I really love learning new things I have started buying rocks to cut and polish. Mostly my learning has been from books and google.
During all of this I have been raising my 7 children and a grand daughter. I have spent about 4 years selling at shows in Florida and now in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. My goal is to find my own little place in the world of creating and sharing with others the joy of handmade things"
