Cynthia

You can find me in many places and on many sites.
As a writer, I share personal stories, craft tutorials, recipes and gift ideas.

My hobbies also include photography. It has been said, that I never go anywhere without a camera and that would be true.

However, my day never starts without a cup of coffee! Even when we travel, I demand a coffee pot in my own hotel room, or at least, fast room service :)
