I am working on a book tentatively titled:Blended Family Stories. It will be an in depth look at the real life challenges and joys of successful blended families. If you would like to be part of my research I'd love to hear from you.Take my Blended Family survey

Seaweed Art Cards
  • Pressed Flowers on Glass Bottles

    Since I recently planted an herb and wild flower garden at my home, I have renewed an old hobby that fits right in with my current past time of pressing seaweed. I press flowers and herbs and use them to decorate glass olive oil bottles. It is a very relaxing and calming ritual for me and I would like to share my creations with you. They are available for sale on Esty and make lovely and unique gifts.
