Wanna make me happy? Give me card, ribbons, gems, dies and papers galore; then follow up with beads, findings, more beads, wires and - oh yes, more beads. I confess, I am a crafter, and one who is utterly addicted to all things home made. I’ve even been known to try my hand at cross stitch and machine sewing. When I’m not crafting, I love reading – mostly novels and mostly fantasy. I also garden, and this year am growing my own for the first time. Honestly, watching the tender little plants (some of which I raised from seeds) is like tending to babies. I love them! Above and beyond all the foregoing passions is my love for Twinkle. Now, you may think Twinkle looks like a cat – and truth be told she does often behave like one, but I know she is my little soulmate and the most precious little being in the world.
