1. What am I working on/writing?
I am currently working on several things at the same time: a scrappy quilt, improving my drawing skills, jewelry making and (hopefully) writing my life story!

I must create, it’s in my soul—my mind is busy making something all the live-long day! Sometimes when working a long shift at the hospital, I end up with several new sketches in my art journal—idea’s I’ve rapidly committed to paper with scratched out directions, so I won’t forget the original inspiration and can then expand on it later when I’m home.
I have recently renewed my interest in sketching and drawing and have set out on a mission to improve! When vacationing recently in South Haven, MI I found a wonderful series of sketchbooks by Quarry Books. Each book has a theme (nature, flowers, animals, etc.) and each page has one or more drawings with lots of blank space for practice—so much fun!
Can you tell which drawings are the original and which are mine? Humor me, say NO!!!!! ha-ha!
This past summer while on a yearly retreat with a long-time girlfriend group, we had an art session led by jewelry artist, Heather Powers, and I fell in love with beads and semi-precious stones all over again!
I’m sure I have loads of material!
It's going to be a busy year!!! I’ll keep you posted!
On a personal note:
