1. Tell me a little about yourself.
Life in all of its forms is precious to me. I am in a constant state of learning about myself and the importance of being in harmony and balance. Teaching high school English is what I choose as my present career because it makes me happy.

 2. Where does your inspiration come from when crafting?
Inspiration comes from a bead, a rock, gemstones, or the patterns of color you see out of the airplane window on your way home from Tucson. If I have not made anything for a while, the excitement of creating is the inspiration.

 3. Who taught you and how did you learn to craft?
A fellow educator taught me the basics of wire-wrapping a few years ago. Learning that skill has changed my life.

 4. Any Specific Tips you have for newbie crafters starting a business in etsy?
The tip I have for newbie crafters on Etsy is to never give up. You never know what someone will like or want to purchase. Sometimes it is about much more than the sales; it is about art, color, shape, texture, and that fireworks feeling you get inside when a piece is finished.

 5. Name 3 websites you couldn’t live without.
The three websites I can not live without are: Lumosity to keep my brain active; Vitacost for excellent vitamins, and websites with free shipping.

 6. What are your 3 favorite shops and why.
My three favorite shops (on Etsy) are: 1)Polestar: because the jewelry design, shop appearance, and owner integrity is impeccable; 2) the multitude of dichroic glass artists on Etsy fascinate me and it is too difficult to choose just one; 3) Print Liberation because I purchased a “MY LIFE ROCKS” t-shirt from them years ago and if I could I would wear it every day to remind myself to always be in a state of gratitude.
