I have this crazy ability to do 15 things at once. I take full advantage of it. I work a lot between co-owning two antique stores with my husband, a full time job at a company where I have been for half of my life and contributing to our community by volunteering on various committees and projects. In my free time I like to make stuff. I am very creative whether it is in my work or for fun. I like knitting, sewing, making jewelry, fabric art, working with clay, handwork like embroidery. I have a hard time staying focused on one thing so I try them all. I have several projects in process at any given time, some may sit for years before I get back to them.
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, specifically Hillsboro, Oregon with my husband, our cats and the Chihuahua Army. I love to hike, bike, kayak and just sit in the sun. As you can see, I enjoy being outside whenever possible. I once was an athlete. I've competed in Dragon Boat races where our team was the one to beat. I've climbed Mt. St. Helens, completed a marathon, and competed in relays.
I enjoy spending time with family, doing things like bowling or playing dice or just hanging out. I love simplicity, nature, puppies, water, the beach, alpinglow on the mountains, quietness, folk art, history, new technology, traditional crafts, fine antiques and vintage clothes.
I hope to be able to travel in the near future and spend more time doing the things I love instead of working so much. I don't want to be famous. My hope is that I can make a difference.
