Patti's Award Gift

Thanks so much for this award.
Patti's wonderful blog is Here
Now I need to tell you 8 things about me.. :
1. I am 62 years old, married, with two grown daughters , 4 grandchildren with us here and one in Heaven. I live in Ohio, USA.
2. I use to oil paint and have paintings scattered across the USA and Canada. Now, I love the mixed media art and new techniques are my weakness. My dining room now masquarades as an art room.
3. My vocation has been "floral designer" since 1967, but I've done way more things than I ever thought possible, from Tupperware manager to monument designer. Now, I am part-time florist, and a provider for developmentally disabled people (which I love). I teach an art class for our consumers .
4. My husband, kitty, and I love to camp and have a 35' camper permanently sitting at Glacier Hills. Quite the get-away.
5. My secret loves are sea shells, cat whiskers (shedded ones, of course.. they're good luck), and feathers. I also love working with teeny teeny things.
6. James Patterson is my favorite author so far..I've never been much of a reader. I have to have my hands moving...
7. I am Christian and attend Piqua Baptist Church. I have been so blessed with abilities I can't believe ...God has been so good to me. I love to sing and praise the Lord.
8. Last is an affermation.... I intend to spend more time with this blog and teach passers-by all I can, as meager as it might be.
Now to give this award to 8 other bloggers, and those in my list need to do too...
This is going to be hard... Soo many artist people out there..
