PHILOSOPHY of the DESIGNER
& LAMPSHADE MAKER
I'm a 47-year-old lady who get younger every year -- so that makes me somewhere
in my thirties about now. Though I've had lots of occupations and professions
during my life, now I am fortunate enough to live in a peaceful setting in the
secluded North Georgia mountains with my husband, and sometimes children and
grandchildren. I live in Dawsonville, GA, about an hour north of Atlanta. In
our so-called "semi-retired state," we enjoy doing many crafty
things, such as building on the property, landscaping and gardening, music, writing,
sewing clothes and home decor, etc.
It was my background in sewing and decorating that gave me confidence for the
skills to create these lampshades. I am no longer interested in big business and
so-called success, since we found that to be too much of a "rat-race."
It's wonderful to be able to do whatever you feel like doing each day, although I never
get everything done!
Being somewhat of a perfectionist, I give 100% to the construction of each and
every lampshade. And since I love doing this, it's not that difficult. It just
takes a lot of time and skill. I have bunches of designs in my head, but never have
enough time to do them all. So I welcome custom orders, for these get done quicker
than my own "yet-to-be shaded" designs.
Other than creating lampshades, I love to garden and seem to do a lot of it --
Outdoors in fair weather, and in the greenhouse when it's cooler. As a matter
of fact, I LOVE nature and every aspect of it. My adoration and love for nature is
the closest I've ever come to experiencing GOD! And it is to this Creative Aspect
that I owe all my gratitude! If you can relate to my philosophy, be sure to visit my
