Biography

Quietly living my life along with my husband and two kids (the other is on her own now) in a small town close to Grande Prairie, Alberta. I keep myself occupied with making stuff, thinking about stuff, and thinking about making stuff. I also keep active with a fairly busy outdoor life with lots of camping and fishing.

You could say that I am a: compulsive knitter, dedicated beadweaver, occasional crocheter, now and then tatter, sometime second hand store stalker, and rare garage saler.
