One-Line Bio

I'm a lot less than I want to be and a lot more than I used to be :)


(wow this is already 2 years old...I really should update it!)

TAH-DAH! Here I am! You really should never say never...I always said I would "never" do a blog. Why? I don't know, but as usual I'm sitting here eating my words. I'm good at that, so no harm done! I've decided that life is too short not to conquer all the things I want to learn, including, web-design and digital scrapbooking! A blog was a natural course of action to accomplish those! I love life and love the creative spirit I inherited from generations of wonderful women including, my mom and my Nanny (grandma), both accomplished artists in their own right. And so...hopefully I'll be able to develop some of that here. As they say... I'm just happy to be here!

If you want to know some crazy things about me keep on reading...if you'd rather not know, I suggest you hit your back button now. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Things that make me...well me!
