I'm a happily married mom of two grown boys. I'm also a cat lover and at the moment have 4 spoiled kitties only because my hubby says I can't have 5!
I started tole painting after taking classes with a friend many, many years ago, and then started quilting after coming to work at Crafts Americana in 2001. I still enjoy doing both although finding the time to do either is a challenge right now.
Here at Crafts Americana I'm the Purchasing Assistant for all three of our divisions: Connecting Threads, The Artist's Club, and Knit Picks.

My pets are awesome!
My kitties are Timothy, Rowdy, Oliver, & Suki (the smallest & only girl but she's the boss)
Thanks Laraine for your comment on my quilt top "Colored Ribbons." I am lucky that I had purchased a number of the solids from CT when they were on sale. They really helped "make" this pattern when I was asked to test it. One of these days I am hoping to get some black batting purchased and then get it pin basted and quilted.
Hi Laraine, thanks for requesting to be my friend. Ok, now you are going to think I'm a total nut....(well, maybe that's correct...) but I clicked the accept button before reading you little message thinking it would still be available....BUT....not...it went poof! LOL So, I know you commented on the Origami bag photo, but that's about it. If you had a question, please re-ask. And I'm sorry for being so air headed today. It has just been one of those weeks!
