I was a teen mom, and now that my 3 kids are all adults, I feel like an older-wiser teenager. Free to do whatever I want, but wise enough to know/want what’s better for me.
I was born in NM, raised in CO and have lived in AZ since 2005. During the day I am the office manager for an on-demand delivery company where I’ve worked since 1994. In 2010 I took a break from this company to pursue a career in Law Enforcement. During that year I got married for the first time, divorced and then lost the LE job.
I started quilting in 2011. You can read about it here. I feel quilting was truly a gift from God, especially after what I’d gone through the year prior. Before quilting, I didn’t have any hobbies besides eating and reading (do those qualify as hobbies?). My crafting history included Home Ec class in middle school, dabbling in cross-stitch when I was 15yrs old and pregnant, and making a dress and costumes for my kids in my early 20s. I’d always loved music but couldn’t sing and didn’t play any instruments. Anyway, when I finally tried quilting it was something I was really good at! I became obsessed and I’ve been a quilting maniac ever since! And of course I write about my obsession passion on this blog.
With all of this being said, I enjoy going to church and would love to play bass guitar in the worship band someday…but I’ve got to make time to practice!I try to stay active w/various activities; indoor cycling, hiking, softball, etc.
Oh! And did I mention, I’m a grandma?! I have 4 beautiful grands from my daughter (my eldest child).
I’m looking forward to someday getting married again and possibly moving away from the city and growing/raising some of my own food.
In the meantime, it is my goal to encourage and inspire in all I do!
Thanks for visiting my blog!
