This is the first in a series for my ATC trading card group. I haven't posted with them in a while because we have been so busy. Thom retireing, a new Grandaughter, working in a new class room, garden!!!!!!!!:) Oh my stars have we been busy!
This has been a really busy couple of weeks. We have been waiting for the birth of our new Grandaughter. She made her appearance on May 10, 2012. She is beautiful! Happy Birthday Miss Stella Mae Grace Heck.
I was born and raised in southern Michigan. I'm blessed with three children, two boys and a girl that range in age from 22-30. I've been married to a wonderful man for the last 24 years. He's been very supportive of my art and has always encourged my artistic pursuits. Even though I have a fine arts degree I still consider myself largely a self taught mixed media artist. Inspiration for my art comes from many different places. Old family photos, my children, pets, and especially our garden, it's a passion that both Thom and I share.
