I am 46 years young, married for 25 years to my partner Ed. I have 2 great boys, Alex 24 and Steven 22. Both boys have finished college. Steven has been blessed with a job...Alex is still testing hoping to become a police officer. Then there's our lab, Knuckles. I love everything primitive. I have painted folkart for over 20 years. I went prim about 9 years ago and started sewing & painting. I sell most of my goodies in a shop in Genoa, IL called Poppy Seed Primitives. I have started my selling blog Primitive hand-dids by OLM. You can click on the picture to the right and visit, if you like. I can be found on www.earlyworkmercantile.com I update ont he 15h of each month. I love to create from my own patterns as well as work from other great prim artists.
