BettyWe never know where we are going in life, what path we’ll travel. I believe that if you do what you are supposed to do, then the good Lord will take you places you never dreamed of.

I didn’t have publishing in my future, but He did. God has blessed me with 11 books published. I don’t know if there will be any more, it is up to Him.

I love "country" and doing things the “old” way, but with modern comforts. We live on a small farm, with cows, horses, and chickens. My horse is named “Dolly”. We love to go for rides on Sunday afternoons with the grandchildren. They love it too. I have made lye soap and churned butter
(just for fun). Children today do not know where milk comes from. It is great for them to see and learn the process.

BettyI have crafty people in my family. My Dad can do anything with a piece of wood. He passed in 2011 and my youngest brother. Miss both of them.

Back in 1979 when I started painting, it was therapy to stop smoking. It worked! I haven’t smoked since. It was hard for me to do others patterns. I had to do it my way. So I started designing my own patterns. Then started doing craft shows. It grew from there. The next thing I knew, I opened a shop. It was fun and lots of work. I do miss it. I closed when I started publishing books. Just didn’t have time to do both.

I have taken a few classes. That was hard too. I wanted to show the teacher different ways to do the project, (but didn’t).

Don’t be afraid to do your own thing.
You never know where it will take you.

BettyI am married to my best friend. We have been together for 52 years. We have 2 sons, Tony and Adam. 3 grand boys and one granddaughter.

We live on a small farm with Cows, and a donkey.

God Bless everyone.
