Customer Service/Team Leader—“jack of all trades”
I work with customers to assist them in finding fabrics/correcting problems/and any other questions, handle the “special” donations, answer questions about patterns-project sheets-kits, process kit orders, answer questions and process orders from designers, and handle the scheduling of trunk shows for stores.
I also help with the Notions Booth at Market and any special projects..
Part of my job is to see that the showrooms and the Lab Store are decorated and maintained.
I was born in San Antonio, Texas, but I went to high school in Conroe, Texas.
My first quilt was a sampler made in a beginners class about 30+ years ago. It was during my “purist” stage—so it is completely sewn by hand and quilted by hand. Obviously, I have gotten over that phase!
All the great “stuff” that we have to decorate the showrooms and Lab Store
a large dose of sense of humor!
Sewing (especially anything to do with wool), reading and cooking
(especially sugar cookies and other sweets)
A schoolteacher so I could work with children
I loved our summer trips to Casper, Wyoming, to visit my grandparents. We stayed 3 weeks at their house at the base of the mountain with many trips to the cabin on Casper Mountain for picnics. So much fun with cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents. We went back several times as adults with our kids so they could share in the fun memories.
.I worked for a computer software company that sold computer games–all those action games. I have never played a computer game (and don’t want to play one), but we were really good at selling them!
Flowers: blue hydrangeas
To always try to be a kind person no matter what the situation.
Doug and Debbi at their wedding in 1971—he had lots of hair and I had black hair! Oh, those were the days!
Ducks—are you surprised?
My entire family gets together for July 4th at my mom’s lake house at Cypress Springs Lake in East Texas. We spend 3-4 days swimming, boating, tubing, skiing and eating. We have had such good times and have wonderful memories.
Or our tradition with my kids (and now their spouses and their kids) that we wear our new Christmas pajamas all day on Christmas. Yes, we all get new pajamas for Christmas!
Where would you go on your dream vacation?
I love the mountains so it would be somewhere with mountains.
I would like to be organized enough to plan my lunches ahead of time, but I don’t. I hate getting up in the morning so that means no lunches from home.
I would spend time with my grandkids. Did I mention that I have 4 grandsons—12 years, 2 1/2 years, 1 1/2 years and 2 weeks old. And, of course, they are the cutest.
|Ducky, this made me laugh, hope it does you as well.|
Just about anything can make me laugh. Life is full of funny moments.
To go sky diving—probably not going to happen but it sure looks like fun.
