First of all, I am not now, nor have I ever been a princess. Princesses sit around and look pretty, We all know who does all the work...the Queen. I am the Queen of my own little world, and I like it just fine.
Why Tiaras? Why not? My Diva girlfriends and I have been wearing them for almost 20 years. I started out wearing them at home to do housework. My son knew things were about to get real when I pulled out my tiara. Back then, it was the biggest rhinestone tiara I could find on ebay. Soon I wore it on long car trips and camping with the Divas, and their families. It was around a campfire that the Divas and I made the first tiaras out of wire and beads and I never stopped.
I share my secluded country home in Southern Ohio, with my honey, John, and a mess of animals. Right now: 2 dogs, 3 cats, 6 ducks, 4 chickens and two very large tortoises. If you see me at a show and ask, I will show you photos of my house, the caves and waterfalls in my back yard and most of my animals.
It is a huge blessing that I can support us by making tiaras. This is my passion and all I think about. It is a joy and privilege that I get to travel around the country doing art fairs and shows and meeting so many people and get this - I make money while having a blast.
