    I have a passion for arts and crafts. Have an AAS in Graphic Arts n Printing August 2003 graduate from Triton College River Grove Illinois. Since I couldn’t find a job in this area, I have srarted to create my own items. I have a house on a small piece of property. Love photography and at times incorporate that into my arts and crafting. I make greeting cards, paint, crochet, loom knit. I nicknamed my property to be Kare’s Green Country. I would and going to grow on that name to become a Bed and Breakfast one day and have a Country Store.
