Greetings from Leesburg, Georgia. I am new to this interesting world of blogging and am looking to network with moms who might share common interests. There are 1000s of sites out there for the younger mom with small children.... not that there is anything wrong with that lol, but I would also like to meet moms and grandmas in their 50s.
I am a 52yo married mom and grandma to three adorable babies. I enjoy being with family and friends. I love traveling to the 'big city' and visited NYC, Boston, Chicago, LA, Dallas, Atlantic City and all around the South, with Boston being my all time favorite city. I enjoy classic rock music and have traveled over the country seeing my favorite band Aerosmith. I was just a mere teenager in 1976 when I first heard "Toys in the Attic" and I was hooked!
I enjoy crafting of all types, gardening, scrapbooking, photography, creating Internet graphics and in the summer time, you can find me basking in the sun by my pool.
I had been in the medical transcription field for over 20 years and was laid off in 2009 due to the economics, like a lot of folks were. I searched for a job for a year w/o success. MT is a dying art with the voice recognition technology and companies are just not compensating us for our work. I am currently enrolled in Certified Nurse Assisting classes and will graduate next month. I plan to work as a CNA for either the hospital or hospice. If I find this rewarding, I may even end up back in college for my LPN. At 52yo, I really didn't want a new career but I do need something for the next 10 years or so. Unfortunately, the job market is not looking for 52yo females ...
I went to Cancun, Mexico for my 20th wedding anniversary in June 2009. While there, my husband purchased me these beautiful seed bead lasso necklaces in a variety of colors. My friends raved over them and I am always asked where I got them. Being a crafty person, I decided to try my hand at beading, following the pattern of the necklaces that I had purchased. What I discovererd was a love for making these new and unique, nice quality, lasso style necklaces. I hand bead myself using only glass and crystal beads with silver spacers.
I am looking for new ways to market these in hopes of maybe being able to open my own web site, but right now I am extremely limited on finances due to my situation. I am on Etsy at
I am not looking just to sell jewelry by blogging. I would like to meet some more moms, especially if you live in the South, to communicate and network with. I am not interested in hooking up with men, so don't even try..... lol
Please follow my blog and introduce yourself. I look forward to meeting new friends!
