I discovered ceramics with a neighbor at this time and proceeded to create and paint green ware ceramics and marketed them on a small scale to flower shops in my local area.

I still dabble in beading now and then but most of my free time is taken up with creating paper projects, especially cards. I have had an off and on love of paper and stamps with the oldest stamp in my collection dating back to 1995, but it wasn't until 5 years ago that I really became an avid card maker. I also discovered in this time that I also love coloring; I love how you can be completely engrossed in the task at hand, seeing and hearing nothing but the project you are working on.
