Creative ideas and thoughts from a life-long artist and designer.
Tuesday, April 27, 2010
Stefan is Bob's oldest grandson, one of 6, that I am fortunate to have in my family. He's a really special person - very thoughtful and conscientious, and hard working. He doesn't take anything for granted and is appreciative of all that is done for him. He just turned 18 and attended Senior Prom. One of the things I admire most about Stefan is that he treats everyone with kindness and respect. He looks you in the eye when you talk with him and really listens to what you are saying. Stefan will be attending U of I downstate, in the Fall.
I'm sure there is no problem identifying him on the prom picture. In the birthday pic, he is sitting next to his cake, surrounded by his sisters and father.
Graduated from Lake Park H S in Medinah, went to secretarial school, worked a few years, married and had 3 great kids. I have 2 grandsons, 4 grand dogs (Griffons)& 2 grand cats (Maine Coon). When my first 2 children were in grade school I was a professional volunteer, active in PTA, Elmhurst Children’s Theatre & Church stuff. I started a small business while expecting my third and have been working ever since. I'm a fibre artist combining cloth, yarn, and photography. Carolee Creations, Inc. is the corporate name - SewSweet Dolls was the first business. Portrait Pillows, Bags and more . . . is my latest venture, started in ‘98, after my husband died. My daughter and I make custom gift items incorporating photographs - purses, coasters, jewelry, ornaments, quilts, etc. I love going to work every day-my studio is full of fun things! I am in a serious relationship with Bob, a retired Psychology prof, since the beginning of the century. We are involved in activities at First Church and in Elmhurst. When we have time we like to travel. I take sewing classes when I can fit them in, recently learned to weave, and would like to draw and paint again someday.
