My cousin Carol sent me this link from a pbs segment on white deer. It is a beautiful and wonderful piece that filled me with renewed amazement at what an amazing place our planet is. For a trip out of the ordinary, take a few minutes to click on this link.
I grew up on a ranch near a podunk small town. Mayberry was live and well. Our Andy was Dana, who followed us kids home after we'd been drinking too much on a summer night just to make sure we got home ok.
I was always good at artwork, due to the fact that my mom is a great painter and always took art classes. I went along and sat in the back of the room with a sketchpad to keep me busy.
Grandma taught me how to knit and crochet when I was four and I started sewing and a lot more when I was 10 thru 4-H projects. Learned a lot about things, animals and people.
I had a full fledged shop for five years, teaching 300 people how to do glass. I made custom home designs and church windows. Sold the shop to some students and started taking advanced classes of my own in lampworked beads, glass blowing and the like.
Have done craft shows for years and have been selling to galleries across the country as well. I love using the internet to connect with people from all walks of life.
