Welcome to My Website

Janet in front of hydrangeas 2020In another life, I was a business teacher.

Then, instead of teaching business, I decided to be in business and became an entrepreneur.

Now that I am of a certain vintage, I am devoting my time to do the things I never found time to do. When I was in high school, I would often say, “When I write my book…” I am thrilled to say I finally did write a book.

Publishing my first book began a new phase and has inspired me to pursue my creative side. In no particular order, here is a glimpse of what is inspiring me. See if you agree I have enough material to keep writing for the rest of my life.

  1. I am a Baby Boomer. I was born in the last century. It was the twentieth century, but it was the last century.
  2. I am a second-generation Italian American. I was six years old before I moved away from a little cocoon called “Federal Hill” in Providence, Rhode Island.  Eventually, I realized everyone’s last name did not end in a vowel and most men did not have funny names like LaLa, Slick, Blondie, or Bugs!
  3. I attended Catholic elementary school and high school. Nothing scares me; I was taught by nuns!

“A Life Well Lived” is my first published work. I promise there will be more.

Although I loved to write as a kid, I did not consider myself artistic in any way. I decided to give art a try and took some art classes. Even if you have never painted, why not try it! It sparked a new passion I didn’t know I had. I am painting and creating all kinds of things with glass. I now say I tell stories with pens, brushes, and glass.

Eventually,  some of my art will show up on this site. I may write about some travel adventures, or share some photos. Perhaps, I will offer a workshop. I’m not sure of the destination. Perhaps, you may enjoy taking the journey with me.

Like me, this site is a work in progress. I can hardly wait to see what shows up!

Check out my book, website, and blog, You have some options as to what to “click” on. I’d love to share the journey with you!

Love, Peace, and Joy,

Janet signature
