Music, nature and intricate patterns are interesting to me, as well as how things work. People tell me I am very energetic, so I find making (in general) enjoyable and somewhat therapeutic ;) Working with upcycled and recycled materials is particularly dear to my heart. Speaking of near and dear, my husband, daughters and grandchildren are my favorite people on earth. I also have a furry feline daughter I'm nuts about.

Like many people these days, I have been laid off (twice), which have been major forces of change. After the last time I decided I would pursue something I truly enjoyed and try being my own boss. Now I am the proprietor of Eclectic Directions, presently on Etsy.

When I came to the end of my rope...I made a knot;)
