I'm a mother of 6 and grandmother to 9. I loved being a stay at home Mom, but being a Grandma is WAY better! My children and grandchildren are, of course, my pride and joy.
I love creating things, from poems or stories, to decorated cakes, to beautiful dresses, to just about every craft there is. I wish I could just spend all day everyday making beautiful things, but one must work to earn a living!!!!
After 30 years of marriage I became rather suddenly, and unexpectantly divorced. That was an extremely difficult experience for me - but now, 4 years (and many tears) later, I am VERY happily married to a wonderful man. It just goes to prove "IT NEVER IS TOO LATE TO LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER ! '
I feel I need a bit of a disclaimer at the beginning of this blog. The name of my blog is "Happiness is Handmade". My daughter's set this up for me and helped design the "logo", or whatever you're supposed to call the heading, and etc. Laurie did a wonderful job and I'm grateful. Both of my daughters love to blog and I love reading their blogs each day, although I seldom comment since I don't think their crowd really wants to hear from an older woman, like me!!!!
But anyway, we chose the name because I love to make things with my hands and have spent my life raising kids and creating things. So you would expect my blog to be full of those types of things, and eventually I hope it will be.
As anyone reading this blog can see, I haven't added anything to it for an extremely long time. However, I have hopes of changing that. My circumstances have changed a great deal and I am finally in a position to really start using my blog as it was originally intended to be. So be patient with me just a little bit longer. And THANKS!
