Former empty-nester, now blended family with daughter and SIL patiently awaiting the birth of our first grandchild (a boy!).. My husband is my best cheerleader and supports all my crazy crafting endeavors. I dream about all I can do when I can retire and try to make the best of every day. Together we now have 8 dogs, 7 cats, 1 guinea pig (sniff, sniff, her mamma just died) and two fish tanks. Our future adventures will include hunting for the perfect home in the country with room for everyone and lots of land for gardening and playing.
