Welcome! I am glad that you are here

Like most people, I wear many hats: mom, grandma, daughter, sister, cousin, partner, friend, teacher, knitter, seamstress, admin professional and so many more.

I’d love to share my adventures in crafting, travel, motorcycles, and family. Occasionally I may also share thoughts, ideas, recipes, and insights that I discover along the way. 

I hope you will join me on this journey and your trip will be a fun one!
