About Me

My photo
Western North Carolina, United States
I am a 62 year old wife and mother of two grown sons, happily living with my darling husband, two dogs and a cat in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. I have moved a lot in my life and, in the process, had more than a few professional incarnations. I have been a midwife with a home-birth practice, waitress, classroom teacher, computer programmer, secretary, bookkeeper, and even a car sales person. I have always loved sewing and managed to use my skills in that area to put a little money in my pocket since I was seven and started making doll clothes for friends in the neighborhood. A little over eleven years ago, a friend drug me to my first bear show to get my mind off a health crisis in the life of my younger son, Seth. I made Mickey with his lady bug, took him to a show and the rest, as they say, is history. Now I am hooked on bears and happily designing and making the furry critters as fast as my little fingers can stitch them up.

Shelfari: Book reviews on your book blog

Tag I'm it and so are you!

Tag - you're it, Butterfly Crafts Online, has tagged me in her blog. Now, I get to post in my blog that I have been tagged by Butterfly Crafts Online. After that I am supposed to list seven random facts about myself and tag seven other people with links to their blogs. So here goes with the random facts:

  1. I am a midwife who used to have a home birth practice.
  2. I speak five languages.
  3. I used to date the grandson of the last Sultan of Turkey.
  4. I lived in the medieval town of Horrues in Belgium for fifteen years.
  5. I am not afraid of spiders, no matter how big and hairy or of snakes.
  6. I was in Jerusalem just before the "Six Day War"
  7. I learned to drive at 22 when my father stopped our Volkwagen bus on an uphill grade at a red light in rush hour traffic; shifted into neutral; set the parking brake; got out of the car and walked off leaving me with my sister to figure out how to get the car home.
I chose the following seven blog links totally at random using a google search for handmade crafters. Please take a moment to visit the blogs of each of these very talented artists. Here they are:
  1. http://jewelrybydesiree.blogspot.com
  2. http://leochelleisabella.blogspot.com
  3. http://zoesbagboutique.blogspot.com
  4. http://janallsopp.blogspot.com
