Navarre, Florida

After retiring from nursing, I wanted to do something creative, challenging, and branch out into other learning experiences. Craftsy has provided the road to all these goals. Some projects are well beyond my expectations and some are "oh well"; but no matter my shortcomings in techniques, the journey has been wonderful.
