betsybeads's Profile

I have cats, dogs, ferrets, chickens and cows because I like animals, and I draw and paint wildlife and nature because that's what I like and enjoy. My pets bring me joy and laughter, and nature brings me peace and closeness to God. A quote from Anne Frank: "The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature."

I do lampworking because it's a thrill to melt glass and pull it around like taffy, and when it comes out of the kiln it looks so beautiful!

I enjoy traveling and wish I could do it much more than I do. My youngest son is handicapped, so several years ago we bought an RV, and now he gets to watch DVDs and play his Playstation while I get to drive. I most enjoy going places and driving on roads where I've never been before. I've been to all the lower 48 states except for the NE states and Michigan. I'm hoping one of these years to drive to Alaska!
