Raised in cities around Frankfurt, Germany. had a diverse upbringing. As the daughter of two people who struggled, I found myself in foster-care at the age of two. Due to various challenges and experiences as a foster child, I gravitated towards crafts. When I found myself to be a young mom, living with one or the other parent of mine, I found myself attached to the crochet hook, at I was 17 and I've been crocheting ever since.
But I also enjoy creating with other mediums and found myself to be courageous enough to try out what ever may peak my interest. I've been woodburning since 2005 and making hemp jewelry since 2004 and other fine jewelry since 2006.
I sometimes find myself scrapbooking or dabble in other art projects that I find inspiring. My recent one is zentangling my bookcase at home! I draw with pencils of all kinds and love watercolor and I like polymer clay.
I am a mom of all boys - one who is serving his country - another who resides with his father and two that are remaining with me. My youngest is a special needs kiddo, who was struggling for the first 7 years of his life - he's 8! You can read more about Lennon at www.lennonsworld.com
I've since my oldest was born and during my youngest's medical journey received a Bachelors in Accounting and a Master's in Mental Health Counseling. Despite this education I live and breathe creativity in its many forms!
It's been a long time dream to do the following:
Open/Operate a store in which I sell art and art is created. Mission Accomplished - www.charmedbutterfly.com - my studio for Hippie's Creations is now located within this space - thus when you come and visit you more than likely will find me there!
