Life Outside UD

Outside of work, I am a Crafty Diva. I promote and teach crafting to others to relieve stress and to remind people of the importance of working with their hands. I enjoy beaded jewelry, paper crafting including scrapbooking and card making, cake decorating and making homemade bath products.
