These are Frequently Asked Questions:
Mercury is a beautiful, blue-eyed Tabby/Siamese mix resuce kitten who is 14 years old. She was my traveling companion on EM:HE, uses the toilet, and is my #1 snuggler.

Eros is a handsome poly-dactyl Highland Lynx kitty we got on Valentine’s Day in 2010 when he was just a couple of months old. He fit in one hand when we got him and now he’s 20 pounds! He was already named ‘Eros’ when we got him, which fit with our theme of Greek/Roman gods.

Juno is a spunky 2 year-old Golden Lab Retriever who still thinks she’s a lap-dog puppy. We got her a year and a half ago when I was hosting an auction. She was one of the auction items. My goal was to up the price of the auction, but no one out-bid me. Thus Juno came home with us!

Juno was a bit lonely, so we headed down to the Animal Shelter and adopted:
Ceres, a white lab mix. She was a skinny little thing and was literally one day away from doom when we took her home to live with us! At 70 pounds, she’s now Juno’s playmate and is in LOVE with Jason. She’s about 3 years old.

Last but not least is Simba… our baby Highland Lynx kitten. Though he’s over 2 years old, he still seems like a kitten at only 8 pounds. He is my little bud – follows me everywhere at all times of the day. So why 4 Greek/Roman names and then Simba? We were originally going to name him ‘Hercules’, but he was a little skittish and looked so much like Simba from the Lion King, so the name just stuck (And maybe, just maybe, Jason had a little to do with it, as he wanted to name Eros – Simba).

Now you’ve met the family of furry friends!
The first one is a dual-arm, radial compound miter saw. This is a life-saver when I am remodeling homes on my own with moldings, crown moldings and chair rails. With the sliding arm, it cuts regular 2×4’s on up to 2×12’s!
My second favorite tool, that’s a little more portable, is a small, 12-volt drill (or screw gun). With the interchangeable heads, it allows you to be versatile, drill holes or fasten screws, all with one small tool.
Third would have to be my jigsaw – it’s great for creating fun things for kids rooms.
My mom is an amazing person who taught me to be strong, told me that anything was possible, and taught me how to be ethical and honest in all my dealings.
My step-mom is equally as incredible! She taught me how to be a strong woman in business, and how to never let anything stop me from achieving my dreams.
My grandmother, who continually inspires me today with her wisdom, laid the groundwork for strong, capable and loving women in my family.
I was blessed to have these amazing role models throughout my childhood, and still even today.
What do you think? PINK OF COURSE!
My personal design style is a cross between modern and Victorian romantic. My own house is a lot of deep reds, cast iron, and grandiose furniture.
