When I was a little girl, I always wanted to be an artist. I used to love to draw things. I've always loved colors & textures... I dabbled here & there & have always been very crafty. I'm partial to things like hearts & flowers, or moons & stars & bright, colorful sun-skies. I'm just an old hippie at heart.
When my hubby became fully disabled, I needed to be home with him more, so I was looking for ways to earn extra cash, to help supplement our income. A very kind friend brought me two really nice long folding tables, so I set em up & I took up painting, in a much more serious way. That was just a few years ago & I have been having a ball!
I'm a shy little girl, from a small town, just trying to bring a little color & happiness to people in the world... I have the most wonderful parents, who taught me that I could be or do anything if I put my mind to it. They have always loved & supported me, no matter what I have done. I am SO grateful to still have both of them at their tender age of 88. I savor every moment I have with them.
I seem to have the knack for doing a lot of different things. It's a true gift. I'm a freak of nature in more ways than one. I'm possibly THE pickiest eater you will ever meet, & yet, I can (& I will) cook ANYthing & I "never" taste what I cook. Amazingly, everything turns out & like magic, it disappears. I am always pleasantly surprised.
As the years have progressed, things have become completely out of the ordinary for us in our lives. Nothing is as it once was, & yet, we just cling to each other & hold hands along the way. Whatever it takes, we're gonna get through it. Together.
I was raised with a very strong faith in God, & to this day, my faith never waivers. Time & time again, God has shown Himself to us in SO many ways & I know, without a doubt, He will continue to carry us down this road we call life. I am continuously in awe at the love we are shown.
I do what I do, because it's what I know I am supposed to do. Whatever it takes, that's what I will do. My stubborn streak wins out every single time.
I painted these lighthouses....

Thanks for joining me here, where you can keep up with my KRaZy life's shenanigans. Life isn't always easy, but I prefer to plunge forward, with faith, fun & fabulous foods... Oh sure, there are always a few tears, but we're all human. At least I "think" I'm human... & We wouldn't appreciate the sunshine, without some rain every now & then, right?...
I'm just happy to wake up breathing each day.
SO glad to have you here!

True Love at First Sight
Here we are, right from the start. Two individuals, one heart... Yes, we truly did have love at first sight. Young love. Strong love. True love. Just like the song says... We met on August 6th, 1982 & got married a few months later, on January 3rd, 1983. He never likes me to tell, because it makes him feel old, but I think it's a huge thing to be proud of. Such an accomplishment... We are coming up on our 35th anniversary in a few days. Time has flown by!... & We still love each other!
True love right from the start.
This was the picture we sent in to be published in my hometown newspaper when we got engaged.
Always time for hugs.
I sent him to the store for some shrimp. We were expecting company. He came home with this puppy. *Sigh!* She lived nearly 18 years. We loved her SO much!
One of our big BBQ's.
Even I love to see our love.
We went on a hike down the Dungeness Spit & came across this cool driftwood shack.
LaConnor, Wa. When he could still walk. I miss those days.
We took our girl for a play date with her brother & went on a hike in the woods.
We waited eight years to get a new dog, after losing our first girl. Isn't she just a doll-baby!
Our girl, Gypsy. Such a LOVE! Always wants to cuddle.
We went on a little road trip. We always hold hands on drives. Our dog, Gypsy wanted to hold hands too. LOVE her!!
Even Gypsy stops to smell the flowers.
My love had surgery to remove some broken & infected bones in his foot. I was by his side daily. I wouldn't have it any other way.
She smooches with such gusto!
We went to lunch with Vicky on my 50th birthday. I'm still not old, I just feel crunchy.
Princess Gypsy. Best dog in the world.
Art, Prints & Note Cards
I am super pleased to be able to offer prints & note cards of most of my paintings. Sometimes I even have the original paintings still available. Please check back often to see if I've been able to complete something new. I will do my best to keep them coming as our KRaZy life allows.
Where I do LuLaRoe
If you haven't tried LuLaRoe yet, you are missing out. I have never been more comfortable, while looking great too... Everyone deserves some buttery soft LuLaRoe in their lives... Come on over & give it a try. I can even help you pick it out or put together an outfit just for you.
$5 Treasured Trinkets
Everything here is only $5 (Except the $25. stuff)... I recently discovered Paparazzi $5. jewelry. I love it & I can't wait to share it with my friends & all of their friends. There are so many fun pieces & you can find something to go with everything... I'm SO thankful for the opportunity to help support my family & the price is right!
Come visit often.
See what's new.
