As someone who loves beautiful things, I often find myself inspecting art work and fine crafting. Whether it be fine art, intricate leatherwork or glasswork, or just a recipe, I can often find either a better way to execute said item or if I’ve never experienced the work, I try it. Not having had expendable cash on hand, I’ve learned to create through trial and error. In my career I’ve never said no to a project if I had the slightest inkling as to accomplish the task. Needless to say I’ve done a lot of research, taken numerous classes and experimented with many different techniques, and look forward to sharing what I know with you as reader. The arts and crafts that I have now become proficient in are ancient ones and I feel the need to continue these traditions with a modern flair. Cooking is also one of my passions and I love to share my recipes that my friends and church have loved. Please join me as I continue in my journey for beauty and health.
