I have enjoyed crafting for most of my adult life.  I began by sewing clothing for my growing family and by creating matching outfits for the family for Christmas and Easter.  I then branched out and started quilting.  For many years, I enjoyed paper crafting through the creation of greeting cards and scrapbook albums.  My venture into wreath making and floral décor began in October 2017, after watching a hometalk episode for creating a burlap wreath.  The episode featured a young man by the name of Nick Kreticos of Nick’s Seasonal Décor.  I enjoyed making the wreath so much, that I looked Nick up on facebook.  I was soon hooked and realized that for all of the wreaths I was making, I couldn’t just continue to give them away, so I decided to start my small business.

In December of 2010, I suffered a compression fracture of my thoracic spine.  My world turned upside down.  I was diagnosed in February of 2011 with Multiple Myeloma, a blood cancer similar to Leukemia and Lymphoma. I am fortunate that I am a seven year cancer survivor. I have endured many cancer treatments over the years, including a stem cell transplant. I was an Executive Administrative Secretary for 24 years before I retired in 2016 due to complications from my cancer treatment.  My cancer has slowed me down, but I just develop new ways to get things done.  Creating wreaths and floral décor has given me much joy and a new focus.

Please join me in my journey and I hope to inspire you.
