My husband and I and our cat “Tootsie” live in Powell. We have lived in Tennessee for ten years. We truly love this beautiful area! The people here at the Craft Center are very special and I appreciate being a part of it.
 
About thirteen years ago I lost the vision in my left eye and was devastated, but determined to fulfill a life-long dream. I called a bead store and asked them if I bought some beads and couldn’t see well enough, could I bring them back. They agreed, I bought the beads, and I went to work. My first earring was about three inches wide and four inches long! I tried smaller ones, and that is how I started. I’m still learning.
