my husband’s 22 year military service, we’ve been fortunate to travel the world
and live in some amazing countries like Japan, Iceland and England.
I became a military wife 30 years ago, I started making gifts for
family and friends as a way to save money. One of the first things I
painted were Japanese warrior shirts using fabric paint and eventually
started selling them at the base gift shop. When we moved to Iceland, I
painted ornaments, plates and mugs and sold them through the base USO.
When next stationed in England, I painted ornaments with English
cottages, telephone boxes, local castles and village signs, selling them
at the annual bazaars. I also created unique ceramic pieces to
accompany customers china sets.
