Hello fellow beaders! I live in Carlisle, PA, which is about 20 minutes west of Harrisburg. My husband and I have been together for 31 years and have one daughter, who is 29. I have 2 sons ages 40 and 39 from a previous marriage, so that should give you a pretty good idea how old I am. I am the proud grammy of six, althought I’m closest to my daughter’s two, Makayla (9) and Braeden (5) who live nearby. I have determined that you don’t know the true meaning of joy until you’ve been a grandparent! I am also the mommy of three cats, Halloween, Casper, and Megatron (named by my Transformer-loving grandson, and otherwise known as Meggie) who seem to love my beads as much as I do (especially when I’m trying to work with them!). I’m a warranty administrator, and in my spare time I like to spend time with my family and friends, bead, cook, read, garden and volunteer as a member of the American Legion Auxiliary. (And of course, spend time on the LB website!). I’ve been beading for about two years, and I’m definitely hooked!
