Thank you for stopping by my website.

I am curious and like to learn new things and share my photographs and thoughts here.

You might find me crafting (handicrafts, food crafts, and big crafts like working on my house), working with honeybees, or spending time outdoors. There is also a really really good chance that I’m using the internet.

I am married to Mr. GAIN AKA Mr. TellBlast, who runs telecommunications businesses, including TellBlast and VocalFi. My family of six thrives in Iowa. {Our homeschool was named GAIN Academy — GAIN comes from the first initials of our kids’ names.}

I hope you read my posts frequently and leave comments because I’d love to get to know you. Maybe we could work together sometime.

I freelance many services, including:

  • writing
  • substitute teaching, all grades, and home school supervising
