I’m a city girl, a middle aged mother of 5, a wife, a grandma, a painter/artist, cloth doll designer, writer, dog lover, an eternal optimist and as a whole, a pretty darn happy gal.
I love romantic comedies, documentaries, Grimm, The Librians, Warehouse 13, House, Project Runway, Sex and the City reruns, The Office (USA) and Game of Thrones.
I believe in God, ghosts, love, kindness, laughing until my stomach hurts, quiet time, a good book, a delicious cup of coffee, bitch fests girl-friendships, walking the dog, cats, and most of everything my husband tells me.
The simple things in life make me most happy-taking walks in the woods with my golden retriever, making art, especially collage and painting. I am a bit of a well known doll maker (Hootin Annies), having designed for a few magazines and have a pattern line that many quilt shops all over the country stock.
Lately I’ve been dreaming of what my life might be like in another 5 years. I am thinking it would be quite lovely to own a few ten acres with a vintage farmhouse and some outbuildings where I can create an art studio and have a barn where I can keep the three donkeys that I’m longing for.
If you are looking for me, you’ll most likely find me in at my art studio, sipping delicious coffee while engrossed in some therapeutic art making, or leading a group step by step through a painting.
My most favorite luxury is my garage door opener.
