Welcome to my site!
A little about me: That’s me up there ^^
Years ago I decided to carve out a little space on the web for my thoughts and to have a creative playground, it has morphed into so much more.
A wife since 1983 to a great guy who never lets there be a dull day.
Mom to 6- 3 gentlemen and 3 young ladies
with an age span of 20 years from the oldest to the youngest.
MIL to 2 beautiful daughters-in-law.
Grandmother to 1 little princess, so far.
In these pages you’ll find:
My storefront: Beading Branches
with all kinds of beautiful bobbles to bring a little more sparkle to your life and other fun items made by me and a few of my friends. We hope you love them as much as we love making them.
My blog: Finding happy in the Chaos
where I tell stories, give tips, talk about homeschooling, kids,
things that light my fire, the Catholic faith, and depression.
I know that’s kind of a scattered topic list – but that’s how life gets sometimes… scattered.
Resources and links to things I’ve found especially helpful.
So, if you are feeling overwhelmed, need a little break, want to get into someone else’s head for awhile, and maybe even get a few tips that can help you find the happy in your chaos,
grab a cup of tea,
have a seat,
and stick around a while.

If you are in the Kansas City, MO area and need a photographer – look her up.
