Location Elmhurst, Illinois, United States
Introduction Graduated from Lake Park H S in Medinah, went to secretarial school, worked a few years, married and had 3 great kids. I have 2 grandsons, 4 grand dogs (Griffons)& 2 grand cats (Maine Coon). When my first 2 children were in grade school I was a professional volunteer, active in PTA, Elmhurst Children’s Theatre & Church stuff. I started a small business while expecting my third and have been working ever since. I'm a fibre artist combining cloth, yarn, and photography. Carolee Creations, Inc. is the corporate name - SewSweet Dolls was the first business. Portrait Pillows, Bags and more . . . is my latest venture, started in ‘98, after my husband died. My daughter and I make custom gift items incorporating photographs - purses, coasters, jewelry, ornaments, quilts, etc. I love going to work every day-my studio is full of fun things! I am in a serious relationship with Bob, a retired Psychology prof, since the beginning of the century. We are involved in activities at First Church and in Elmhurst. When we have time we like to travel. I take sewing classes when I can fit them in, recently learned to weave, and would like to draw and paint again someday.
Interests reading, crosswords, sudoku, photography, movies, travel, family
Favorite Movies There are so many, but the ones that stand out in my mind are: Wizard of Oz, Dr. Zhivago, Road to Perdition, On Golden Pond; Indiana Jones-the first, Romancing the Stone, more
Favorite Music Everything! I don't have time to listen to all that I want to. When I'm working, I have to keep the radio low, so I can hear if someone comes in. For background music I prefer instramentals.
Favorite Books Anything by Jeffrey Archer.

Do you believe that forks are evolved from spoons?

No, I think forks evolved from sticks, i.e. pointy things to pick up soft stuff with.
