...creating items of joy, fun, love & grace...


 ...wife & mom







... I'd love to publish my own cookbook.  For now, copies are in the hands of just a few family & friends.  In the meantime, I will share a few of my favorite recipes on-line.   

...I'd love my own shop or at least my items for sale in a special little boutique

...for now you can visit my etsy shop & enjoy this on-line cookbook!

I Hope This HELPS


My heart's desire...

to use whatever talent that God has given to me to bring glory to Him,

to create items of joy, fun, love & grace that will bless those who purchase or give something from me.
