I am an amateur photographer that started a facebook page this year with portraits and landscapes - which helped me to actually feel like a "real" photographer! I also like to journal, draw, do various crafts & projects and love all things creative. I work as an administrative assistant - which is not so very creative, so I love the time I get to devote to creative endeavours!
My husband is a retired postal worker and a creative woodworker. I started an Etsy shop for his beautiful hand-turned on a lathe candle holders and other items. But mostly we sell at local craft fairs.
I am 61 and have been and continue to be many things in my life:
I have been a bank teller, a postal worker, a stay at home mom (only for about 4 yrs), a drugstore cashier/ad room associate, a department store photographer, an instructional assistant in Kindergarten(that one was for 10 yrs) a floral designer, owned my own dried-floral design business, a manufacturing associate, a receptionist and now an admin. Whew!
I also have four children and four grandchildren - Life is good, but could be so much better if I didn't always wish I were thinner! I want to lose about 62 lbs so that I can finally throw on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, or a pretty summer dress and not worry about my bulges hanging out and how I can disguise them! I want to be able to go to Lake Powell (one of our family addictions) and not be constantly aware of sitting around in a bathing suit! Arggggh!!!!
