About Us

avatar_large3I have  been an active homemaker, cook, and gardener for over 50 years. I've been involved in all phases of these activities and have always followed the latest trends in cooking and gardening to find the best techniques for achieving the best results. I love sharing my passion and helping other people learn the joys of  creative activities.

I have always been interested in all phases of home and garden topics and spent many years sharing my love of arts and crafts with my six children while they were growing up. Every winter we took up a new craft, and I would be hard pressed to name a craft we didn't explore. We covered leather working, candle making, paper crafts, soap and cosmetic making, sand painting, flower crafts, and other crafts too numerous to mention.

I have written many articles in the home and garden field and have also contributed to many home decorating and gardening  magazines, blogs and websites. I also have built a popular website Home Decorating Room by Room.com. Along with this I've written 15 books that are published on Amazon on various cooking and gardening subjects. Many of these are #1 bestsellers. Feel free to visit my Amazon author page

I live in Maine and I've  been married for over 50 years. We raised 6 children and have 9 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandchild. In my spare time I enjoy hobbies of quilting and watercolor painting. My favorite activity is traveling across the country with my husband, Arthur, visiting with family and friends.
