1. I am a tailor and milliner but I don't do those thing any more can't seem to tear myself away from the art table.
2. I have lived in USA, UK & Middle East, DH's job took us several places before retirement.
3. I have been married 38 years to a fabulous man.
4. We have 2 children and we are very proud parents.
5. We keep vacationing in the Rocky Mountains and love it there but TX will always be our home.
6. I love doing genealogy and do seal some time from my art to peruse ancestors.
7. I look forward to the all the retreats each year because of all the laughing and wonderful people I meet and the fun projects that are created.

A good way to keep up with your favorite blogs

ok I did the Blogarithm for a while and was not so pleased but have changed to Google Reader per Kathy's recommendation and like it much better .... it sure makes keeping up with all the blogs I like to check out much easier ....... so if you seem to be spending all your time checking all the blogs you like only to realize more have nothing new than the ones that have posted something new .... then get you a blog reader to help manage your time so you can spend more of it doing wonderful art ......
