Hi, I am Ann and I will try to let you in on who I am; but I still have a hard time figuring that out sometimes!
I like to think of myself as still evolving. I have a wonderful husband of 33 years named Tom -he is my best friend. We have been blessed with three great kids and now, one grandson. I love them all dearly. When my kids were growing up we were busy with dance, hockey, baseball, lacrosse and I loved every minute of it! Now they are all grown up and I really miss those days. They are all wonderfully supportive of my ventures and I appreciate them for that!!
I retired from my long time place of employment, Mattel (toys) - every girl's dream job to grow up and still get to play with Barbie! Even when I was little I was always making clothes for my dolls or furniture out of a box. My mother was a fabulously talented sewer and I inherited her love for fabric. In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name. Other things I love: my dogs, chocolate, walking, ice cream - oh just make that walking my dogs to get chocolate ice cream - that should cover it all!! I am working part time at a Bridal Salon and really enjoy working with the brides. We recently bought a fixer upper home on a small lake and have been working hard to make it into our home. My blog is my creative outlet and I hope you enjoy it!
