About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

I'm having lots of fun learning to tat. This is one of the cards I recently made (for an amazing friend named Rosy) with tatting.


  1. I have not seen this used before but it is very good effect. Love the colours. xx Flora

  2. LOVE THAT!! It's makes the whole card just POP! I also love the way that the stem is the negative. Beautiful work!

    You also introduced me to spirelli/string art, thank you so much for ALL the inspiration and introduction to new to me techniques!

  3. Joan this is really beautiful. Love your creativity.
