Hello Everyone! My name is Dawn. I thank you all for your welcoming and lovely comments on my creations. I am 55 and have been married to my husband Steve (Hunkman) for 35 years. We have two grown daughters.

We have two Shelties Ranger and Mandie!

I love to garden, cook, bake, quilt and crochet as well as bead. I have currently made most jewerly items as gifts, special request and for several brides and their parties. I hope to start a website one day to at least break even with my purchases. Perhaps find a spot in a ladies boutique or private salon.

I enjoy making new friends and learning new things. I love to read, watch the birds I feed and love sipping coffee watching the sun rise or set. Twilight is my favorite time of day.

My favorite holidays are Halloween, Thanksgiving and the 4th of July.
I welcome anyone who would like to be a friend and learning from all you talented ladies.

    Hi, Dawn! Yes, our computer has been acting up — I’m going to have to give it a stern talking-to! :( I did get your message & will write more later — we’re getting ready to eat dinner.
