I am no longer with Close to my Heart. However, I am still an avid crafter and fused glass artist. I moved cross country from California to Arkansas to be near children and grandchildren. It has been a long road to getting settled in our house on five acres in Paragould. I didn’t have room for all my household items much less my glass studio and crafting supplies. We ended up finishing a cabin barn for our library and my craft room. Once we got a lot unpacked I was able to access an existing metal building for my glass studio. There is still work to do to finish organizing and decorating but I am now to the point I can get back to my art work. I rent space in a local shop, The Twisted Peacock, to sell my items. We are loving our country home and settling in finally. I look forward to sharing my arts and crafts journey here.
