About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Fabric Artist
Location Germantown, Ohio, United States
Introduction I'm older than dirt (at least I feel like that some days) and the mother of one daughter, grandmother (nana) of two, plus mama to a whole tribe of cats and one big lab-mix dog. I love my family, my animals, and my backyard cabin. All my animals were rescued at one time or another. They are a big part of my life and their care and feeding is often an overwhelming responsibility but I love each and every one of my furry companions. I've loved animals, music, writing, and crafting ever since I was a child and I now write stories and poems and compose lyrics for songs. I also write letters to my grandkids and when they eventually read what I've written to them, I hope they'll be able to recapture some of the memories we made together when they were little.
Interests Home, family, cats, writing, music (composing lyrics), volunteering, and rescuing animals.
Favorite Movies Bridges of Madison County, Patch Adams, Mrs. Doubtfire, Forest Gump, Big, City of Angels, and most any movies starring Robin Williams or Tom Hanks.
Favorite Music I love John Denver. I also like Josh Grobin and the Three Tenors. I also like some of the Big Band sounds from the 40's.
Favorite Books Right now it's A New Earth, but I also like self help books - Simple Abundance, Moving On, etc. I recently read, "The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio" (great book), "90 Minutes In Heaven", and "Animals in Spirit". I'm presently reading, "If You Want to Walk on Water, You Have to Get Out of the Boat".

No one can save all homeless animals, but could you save just one? I'm a member of the Rescue Me animal adoption organization. Their motto is, "Saving animals, one animal at a time".
