I am a member of the Lumbee Tribe of NC, the largest tribe east of the Mississippi. I am a Navy mom and have raised 3 successful adults. I married my soul mate in 2017 and moved to cooler weather in Pennslyvania. I have been sewing off and on for about 25 years with rest years in between because of work and life. We are now empty-nesters, and I have been sewing more than ever in my life and I am loving it. I have written 2 books and have a few journals on Amazon and I continue to write to be published more in 2020. I make beaded jewelry, mainly regalia jewelry and I am living the dream with my amazing husband who supports me in everything I do.
