I AM WOMAN
I go by the name of Shadee, or Shadee66. This is a name my grandmother gave me when I was a child and I really like the sound of the nickname iIt is two parts of my real name
Sharon Dee. I was born on D-Day 1944, and that is where my name came about that is the most important part of a person is her/his name.
Just a short story of who I am and what I do and why I am here on Granny's Korner Blog and Find Your Voice.
I have been married for 50 years come July 27th this year to a wonderful man, we are lovers, friends, and parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents.
There are many parts to my life I have my faith to keep me grounded and my Art to keep me happy. That is why I known as the Gemini, I am two person in one body.
My grounded person has been a mother of three great boys, and three wonderful grandchildren, and three wonderful Great -grandchildren and these are the center of my real world, plus all the wonderful thing my hubby and I do now that we are retired and enjoying the ''GOLDEN YEARS'', and why they call retirement that I cannot figure it out it has been the ""Broke Years" for me. LOL.
I have gone through a lot of sorrow along with a lot of fun and in the last 50 years since I have been married. I lost my father the week after I was married, we lost 2 sons at the age of 21 each, and step-father, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, mother-in-law father-in-law and a lot of friends. This has brought out the twin in me the Creative person.
In the 1980's I took up " CREATIVE PERSON". I have always been creative from childhood but it came to life when we lost our sons. I started decorative painting class and was encouraged to open a craft shop in our small town of Ste. Genevieve, Mo and I did it.
I new nothing about business but I new about art and supplies so I jumped in with both feet and this is where the fun begin. I took classes, I taught, I learned we did not have computers at that time and I had two very special helpers that were great designees and we did it all.
Then the "GREAT FLOOD OF '93" took it all away. But that did not stop me I moved to my basement and opened a studio and that is where I am now.
The Journey will continue next week tune in to my blog.
