I am 47 years old with 3 boys who are 21, 18 and 7. Two of my boys are serving in the military. I am a US Navy veteran myself. I work full time as a Veteran Employment Representative for the state of PA and finding ways to support our military and veterans is my 2nd passion in life.
My #1 passion is my love for cross stitching. It started out as a hobby many, many years ago but through certain events blossomed into an obsession and addiction (but I can think of many worse things to be addicted to..lol)
I have a Facebook group where I am an admin of over 4000 stitchers internationally that share my same passion of this wonderful art (and yes, it really is an art). This group of people has become like another family to me. I do many events online as well as host retreats once a year in various places to bring us together for a weekend of fun and companionship.
It is this group that inspired my first website that I just started a little over a week ago. It is not an easy site to monetize so it will not be my big money maker, but it helps me to further promote things I do and things I make for others. This site is a stepping stone for me to learn on and then move onto building my WA site that hopefully will bring me the financial freedom I seek!
