Lets start at the beginning


Hi welcome to my blog. My first post will be a personal one. Meet J my stepson and A my daughter. Please excuse her hair in the picture sometimes the best photos get taken even when you have a bad hair day.

Why Sweet Elsie?
Elsie was my Nana one of the sweetest most supportive people who have blessed my life. She was strong, creative and she believed that I could do anything. I can’t think of a better person to honor. This day when I read her letters to me I know I couldn’t have asked for a better role model and grandmother.

About me
For as long as I can remember I needed to create. I can thank my parents for that. My mom was a weaver and my dad a blacksmith. I started out with wedding cakes and flowers then for a while I made my own purses next I learned lamp working and finally photography. And to be honest there probally have been a few others that I have forgotten about and I am sure there will be more. So that’s a little about me.
