Bits & Pieces of My Life

About Me:
When my daughters were growing up, I was a stay at home mom. I only started working in our family real estate company about 10 years ago. Since it's a family business, I work flexi-time. Sometimes I'm in the office at 6:00 am so I can go home early. Somedays I can play hooky and enjoy a relaxing day at home scrapping.

Other crafts I have dabbled in are baking, cake decorating, cross stitch, paper mache, candle making, beading, stamping and card making. Right now I'm trying to improve my phototgraphy and photshop skills.
