My husband (Gary) and I have been married
for 24 years and live in an old brick farmhouse on
5 acres in NE WI-a nice peaceful setting. The
kids are moved out, but the house is far from empty-we
have a retired greyhound and 3 cats who have graciously
allowed us to share the house with them-lol.
Gary has worked for the last 25 years
at a local paper company while I still haven't
figured out what I want to be when I grow up!
(Even though I'll turn 50 next month!) I work
at a florist/greenhouse in Green Bay and do a little
bit of everything there. It's a nice atmosphere
being surrounded by plants & flowers all year
long, and I get to be creative there besides!
We have 2 kids: Jessica is 23
& works for a cell phone company and is taking
classes at the technical college working on getting
her 2nd degree. Although, she now says she may
change to something else entirely-I think she just
likes going to school!
Jeremy is 21 & is living in Madison
and going to the University there pursuing a degree
in psychology. He works as a therapist for autistic
kids and teaches Eskrima-a Philipino martial art form.
I started college (about 100 years
ago!) with dreams of being an art major, but got married
& had kids instead, so art got put on the proverbial
back burner for a lot of years. Then, less than
2 years ago I bought my first rubber stamp-and it's
been a whirlwind ever since! I started making
cards & selling them at the shop I work at, so
that gave me the opportunity to keep trying new things-and
a great excuse to keep buying more stamps. I've
given up on the idea of ever making any money doing
this-I spend way more than I sell!
