Joined 5 years ago from Upstate New York, USA




I live in upstate New York with my hubby of oh-so-many years.  Our family includes our daughter and son-in-law, and two of the sweetest granddaughters ever!  

I am the administrative assistant at my church, and absolutely adore my job, and am a published freelance writer.   When I'm not writing, I'm usually rubber stamping, cardmaking, and scrapbooking, doodling, reading, knitting, or spending time with my family.   Recently I've been dabbling in gardening.  

My paper crafts blog http://paperartscafe.blogspot.com , includes stamping and scrap booking techniques, and cardmaking.

My writing blog A Little Perspective - Living In Joy, Hope, and Grace features short pieces on finding joy and peace in the present moment.

I sell handmade cards, gifts, accessories, and wedding necessities at my Etsy site http://www.etsy.com/people/TatteredDaisy?ref=pr_profile .

I love coffee, latte, Skittles, ice cream (Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia is my favorite), spaghetti, the colors pink, purple, and green, long walks, daisies, the season of autumn, opera, classical music, and rock & roll (50's & 60's style), socks (the funkier the better), logic puzzles, Sudoku, collecting matryoshka dolls and miniature tea cups and sugar/creamer sets, and playing games!
