Hi all in the Garden. What a great place! Im a 47 years young, married 29 years wife, mom of 3 grown children, and Gramma to 6. Not counting the 5 furry friends who live with us. 4 kitties and a sweet pup. I like to read, make crafts, taking my family to the beach, the computer. And oh yeah, I LOVE BEADS!!! I live on the shore of Lake Erie in Pennsylvania and spend most of my summers at the beach. I collect lots of shells, beach glass and stones and other interesting bits that wash up. I use them to make jewelry and other things with through the looong winters here. Often times combined with or along with polymer clay which is my second favorite creative item. We like to garden and grow all our own fresh herbs and vegetables. We also have 6 fruit trees, grape vines and wild blackberry brambles out back. But we have to fight the birds for the fruit. When Im not outdoors, I am inside either at the PC or working on one craft or another (when Im not chasing a giggling grandkid.) Just wish I had a little more of their energy.
