Aspiring Creative & Encourager

Encouraging people and adding value to them, that’s what I desire most to do. I seek to do this through Objects of Joy designs and sharing day-to-day experiences – the mundane, the exciting, the triumphs & the oops – thoughts, wisdom and insights. Occasionally I will share some practical things, too.

Create & sell assorted designs. Mostly local, some on Etsy.

Where I’ve come from:

Way Back Story
Born and raised in Maine. Graduated from University of Maine, Orono. Married 1977. Awesome son born 1983. Wife & mom – my favorite “occupations.”

1972 – 2016
I have lived the most amazing life and served in a variety of professional situations. Military officer. Personal injury claims examiner for a major air line. Missionary. Grant writer.

Retirement? What’s that!?!
In recent years I started creating personalized cards for family and friends. This hobby gradually expanded to include other designs, and is now a passion known as Objects of Joy.
