Hello, I’m Gretchen

Thank you for taking the time to look through my blog.  My intent is to share with you all the different things that are going on in my life as well as share some of the thoughts, recipes, creations, and poems that I love. 

Just a little about me…I grew up in the Midwest and still leave 5 minutes from the home that I grew up in although I have lived other places for periods of time.  

I have a great family, and I count my sister Melanie as my best friend.  She’s two years younger than me, and we have shared lives, friends, and even apartments.  She’s the kindest person I know.  I do have 6 siblings in total, but Melanie and I are closest in age with the rest being much younger.  They are all great though.  I can’t wait until they start getting married and having children.  Being an aunt is the best!

I have a collage degree in Business and I work as a Support Representative for a Warranty/Technical Support Company.  However, my first love is creating!  I have so many hobbies that I often just give up and read a book because I can’t decide what I want to do when I have free moment. 

My hope is this blog will give me some direction with my free time.  I hope to share what I create and how I create.  My second love is animals, so I will be sharing my animals and others too.

I hope you enjoy!
