I love to make things, to garden, to read, to write. I love my cats. I love to laugh. And I love my husband. I also love handmade items – especially earrings and art dolls, Irish Breakfast tea, Victorian images
and ephemera, and really old books. My favorite craft tool is my bone folder. I like to touch and feel handmade and decorative papers like others will touch and feel fine fabrics. I love to make things look
time-worn with distressing and aging. And I love to make things sparkle with glitter. To me, chips and tears are beautiful and only enhance the story behind a vintage find. I think life is definitely too short to hold off pursuing your dreams until “someday” happens. Someday is now. And living your life in the moment should be what everyone strives for.
