Hi! My name is Shae. I’m a housewife and the mother of an awesome
14yr. old son & beautiful 3yr. old daughter. I have many health
problems so working ouside the home is not really an easy thing for
me. I love to read! I draw, work with wood, engrave glass and other

I am, waiting for some other supplies to try my hand at making some
jewelry. LOL I’ve ordered a few books, and I’m researching online
while I wait for the mail!
