My favorite name is: Grammie, but you can call me Tami.
My high school sweetheart husband and I have 3 grown children and 9 grandbabies.
We have 2 married daughters and son (recently married into a blended family), so we joyfully add 3 more grand kids. A perfect dozen the way I see it!
I grew up on Keuka Lake in Hammondsport, NY. We loved the small town, swimming daily in the lake, and enjoying the delicious grapes!
I’ve always loved creating, even at a young age I would make barn wood collages for a local store, enjoyed crocheting my own designs, forming things with clay, or sketching with pen and colored pencils. Writing has also always been a passion of mine; through journaling, poems, Children’s stories, or inspirational romance short stories.
I believe God has given me talents to, well, keep me whole. My 3 Etsy shops are a wonderful avenue for me. They allow me to create and design things I love and then sell them to others who, I’ve been blessed love them too.
I have been published in Country Woman Magazine, Highlights for children, Haute Handbags Magazine, and my first published book entitled, Raising Stephen, One Day at a Time.
This book centers on the topic of Bi-polar Disorder, which our youngest, and only son, was diagnosed as a child. My book can be purchased from my main Etsy shop, or on Amazon.com.
Other than the Lord, my parents, siblings, Husband, children and grandchildren are the most important things in my life!
I love all things romantic, lacey, shabby chic, and glorious fabrics!
Italian cooking, Olive Oil, gardening and flowers are another of my “must haves!”
I am a FULL TIME, NY Yankees FAN!

God Bless You,
