I'm a gal from IL who transplanted to the Pacific NW about 25 years ago. My heart is still in Central IL and I hope to retire there. I am, first and foremost, a follower of Christ! I'm also mom to two beautiful daughters and a grandma to two handsome grandsons and a gorgeous granddaughter. I love crafts! Especially making soap, potions, and lotions, sewing, and just about anything else! Come back often and visit my cottage - you're always welcome!
