” Life On Blackberry Road”
I am a Christian saved by grace, a wife, mother, Grammy, and also a part time registered Nurse in my spare time LOL. I have been crafting and creating items for at least 30 years. It has always been a passion of mine to make handmade gifts for Christmas and other occasions.
I’ve Sewn, crochet, painted scenes on old antique items, some repurposing of old/antique items too. I have always loved creating items, it makes me happy, and gives me joy, I love seeing the finish product.
My husband is very supportive of my passion to create and always encourages me, he helps me when I ask , and when he see’s that I need the help, that is really nice. I have three adult children, three grandchildren, and one stepson. We are a close family, but empty nesters. Family is very important to me.
I went back to school 8 years ago to become an RN. I work two days a week at the local hospital that is also a Trauma center. I enjoy taking care of my patients. It’s very fast pace. Hence the reason for only two days a week LOL.
Other things about me,
I had my own business several years ago a consignment shop for the family. After 8 years, I had a tug on my heart from God to sell my Business which I did. Thats when the medical field came into my life. A friend of mine encouraged me to become a nursing assistant. I was a nursing assistant for one year, then I entered school to become and LPN and that was one hard year LOL. I was an LPN for 4 years before entering college to become an RN. Thats what I do today among other things.
I’ve done some craft shows in the past. I’ve had friends to my home to do a craft, I would pick a holiday craft and teach and help them make the item such as wreaths, snowmen among other items. I like going to craft shows and I get really excited when I see the potential of what can be done, then I get down to business and start creating something. LOL
I enjoy a simple life
I have always be interested in saving money/managing finances, getting out of debt, frugality
Reading my Bible, Sharing my faith
Reading books to help me grow personally
Living an intentional life.
I’m a coffee drinker
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I enjoy gatherings with family, and decorating.
I like going to auctions and sometimes yard sales with my husband.
