What's your thing? 

When my daughter was four years old, she asked me "Mommy, what are you going to be when you grow up?"  Everybody said it to her, so why not ask me that too.  I answered, I want to do what I love.... I love to sew.... to create....I told her I went to college to be a Home Ec Teacher, because I love to sew and I love to share the gift of sewing. I am very blessed to have my own quilting business and be able to do what I love every day.

My husband, Ritch always said to the kids "find a job that you love and it won't be a job, it will be your life!"

I believe when you do what you love ... it is not work any more!

Recently Mark started actively writing and singing.  He had majored in Music when he was in college, but he has had other careers along the way including computer work.  He creates wonderful websites! He did mine. He still does that too.  How lucky he is to have two loves.... Well, I would have to say three, as his first love is his wife, Julie.  I believe Julie is his greatest inspiration. I am so glad she is in his life...and ours... I can't leave out his family too. He has three teenage boys.  Alex helped him name the song "Keep on Dreaming".

If you listen to his other songs, you can really feel his emotions in each of the songs.  I told him, I want to quilt at quilt to the music of his "Keep on Dreaming" song. It's on my list!
