Personal

Hi, My name is Lorrie.
I Live in Downingtown, Pa
I have 5 kids (3 special needs foster boys) Ages are 18,18,17,10,& 9! They keep me jumping! I do a lot of advocating for children.
Monkeykat Chick-Let Rhi is my darling 10 year old! She often helps when I make jewelry, and is a wonderful encouragement to me!
I love jewelry making because there are so many different things to learn & so many materials to work with! Before I found beading, I would jump from one craft to another, often in mid project, and sometimes never go back & finish them. I love handmade things! It is great to create things others will enjoy.
I make my own glass beads, and love working w/ my torch! I now have a kiln,and would like to try my hand at enamelling, and maybe PMC.It would be great to maybe have a small working space that isn’t in my kitchen! LOL
I am taking classes on silversmithing. It is a lot of fun! I have learned how to make pendants, and set stones, and currently I am learning about making rings. I know how to knit & crochet, and currently use these skills with wire.
Craft shows are fun- I can go out and meet new people, and not be ‘Mom’. While I love my kids- they are a round the clock job, and sometimes the break is nice!
I like puzzle games; Sudoku & Mahjong, and enjoy mysteries. I also like to read, although I do not have much time for it.
I am a Brown Belt in Tae Kwon Do although with my shattered ankle cannot take class right now.
Oh, and I Love vampire movies :)

    Hey Lorrie,

    How are you doing? I miss your chats and Picks, and hope that all is well with you and your family. In very belated response to your question about Facebook, yes I am, my Facebook name is ”Joyce Yee”, although I’m not on it very much temporarily, due to problems with my laptop.
