Hi! I'm a retired Bridal Designer, and am now spending my time getting back to pleasure crafts! My husband and I are still newlyweds, nearing our 3rd anniversary on October 2. I was single 33 years! We moved across the country from Phoenix Arizona, to Lumberton N. Carolina. The slower lifestyle agrees with us! Both empty-nesters, Jim and I are finishing the work on the 1950's bungalow style cottage. Fortunately, this home has a huge addition.... adding about 40% to the original size. Having to quit the sewing trade due to a disability, I spend my time on projects for home, family, and pleasure- as I feel able. Jim, now a Pastor/Judeo Christian Rabbi; is retired from the tile trade, and currently joins his friend in local ministry. This includes a bible study twice a week at a local prison. Join us as I document the journey in our changing lives!

One thought on “”

  1. These days have me working at a Bridal Shop here in Phoenix, Arizona.
    I haven't been on here in a while, and have spent but a little time on Craftster.
    However, I am planning to get more active. Doing Bridal Gown Alterations takes one away from the other projects. The eyes just get too tired.
    One thing on my mind, is building up the etsy shop. I am getting some patterns posted, as well as spending more time researching and looking at other shops.
    I would really like to build up my own private dressmaking clientele, like when I was in San Francisco.
    The foot injuries I went thru are much better, so I am making a comeback in a physical way.
    Love keeps eluding me… Will I EVER be a bride? Or just always helping the others???
    My friend is getting married, and I am making her dress. A very simple raw silk princess seam dress. It will get a little lace around the neck. But, this is a slightly mature bride, so modesty matters.
    Finally, my birthday was Thursday, Sept. 16th.
    it was great to see how many friends posted birthday wishes on facebook. I really didn't expect it!
    Thanks, everyone!
