A Little Bit About Me

I have always been around creativity. My mother quilted, crocheted and made clothes and my father was “a jack of all trades but a master of none” and exposed me to a little bit of everything. He taught me how to re-upholster furniture, cane chairs, garden, quilt, paint pictures, paper machete, repair pendulum clocks, strip and refinish wood furniture, create flower arrangements and the list goes on and on. Before he passed away told me he was glad that I was interested in learning what he knew because he was grateful that he could pass on his knowledge. I have the same desire to figure out how things are made and try to improve them. I love to create unique statement jewelry and re-purpose old into new. I love to make grapevine wreaths, grapevine trees, medicine wheels, leather shoes, walking sticks, mandalas, dream catchers, Indian breast plates, purses and many other Native American inspired items, Christmas cards, center pieces, cross stitch, embroidery, and quilts. I've made my own clothes and coats. I have even made a few wedding dresses. My daughter and I love to re-purpose her clothes and I've made enough hats and scarves to warm everyone in Cincinnati. Just like my dad, I love to teach others anything that I know. My dream is to have my own store and create something new every day. I would teach classes to others and see their imagination come to life. As long as my hands still work, I will be creating.
