I am retired and am using my love for crafting as a means of bringing a little extra income into our lives. We farm and ranch so my life is also filled with a love of animals in which I have the job of raising all orphans that or brought in. My grandchildren are my greatest treasure and a lot of the things I make are with their insperation plus my love of Butterflies. I didn't realize how far back that love had begun until I looked at some old pictures and found my 4-H book in which I made my first item for the fair which was a solid blue full skirt with a blouse. The skirt had little white lace butterflies all around the bottom. Well, as you can tell by reading although I have retired I am doing more than I ever have which is what I hear from other retiries also.
