Bio & Headshot

Well Hello there! If you've stumbled your way to this blog WELCOME! I'm a widwestern gal who is darn crafty. I love taking all kinds of pictures,  but taking funny ones of myself are my favourite. I am a t.v. and movie addict who can remeber all kinds of movie history, actors names, dates and trivia, however, I cannot seem to remember where I put my purse, keys and sometimes my children! 

To learn more about me you can get a backstage tour by clicking on the different links and visiting the bio/headshot area.

The Climb.... take 2

At the beginning of the year I picked the word Climb to be my "word" for the year. A sort of anthem of how I intended on living my life for the next year. I can tell you now some 8 months later that I did alot of climbing, but usually because I had fallen so far.

One day back in february I suddenly felt completely overwhelmed and started experiencing full blown panic attacks. I entered into therapy and today can say that therapy saved my life. ( thanks Beth)

I entered into the therapy thinking or telling myself I was there for one thing, but along the way the truth came bubbling to the surface and then .... set my free.

I've wrestled many times over letting my blog go, but I just couldn't  pretend anymore. I didn't want to put it all out there; everything I was struggling with and so, I walked away from pretty much everything I knew and used to love doing.

What I can do is say that I appreciate all of you who have taken the time to inquire about me, the blog and my convertables.

As I write this I am sitting in my scrapbook room, a room that looks as if it was once used, but now is filled with the things noone knows what to do with. And I'm excited, I'm excited to start the next excavation of my life and peel back the layers of dust on this old friend of mine.

I've cleaned off my computer screen and dusted off the keyboards.

So if you've stumbled back here to have a little look see....

I'm back!



creative exercises...

Just wanted to tell you all that on Monday I will be starting this class for the next 6 weeks.

A star is born!

The best part of my weekend started on Friday night.

I was invited by my friends Beth and Shae to see Shae play the part of Annie.

There is no doubt about it Shae was born to play the role of Annie.

She brought to the role all that Annie encompasses...





and hope.

Her performance brought me to tears...


I was so moved to be witness to someone totally in there element, clearly using one of the many gifts God has blessed her with.

To Shae, my dearest little friend,

I was so proud of you! Thanks you for including Ella and I in your magical night.

I want you to know I will always be willing to jump to my feet for a standing ovation, clap my hands till they itch, and yell BRAVO to you from here to Broadway!

 Bravo to you from my blog!






Fun Size


I wore this shirt to spin the other day

My feet... size 8, big feet for a little person.

My jean size.....well, we'll leave it at that!

My house, not too big not too small.

The amount of pets... 2
