About Charlotte Zweigoron

Married, retired, never been so busy..! One of my most prized possessions is my very own craft room! And, actually, all the rest of our home is built around that craft room. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have been living in Georgia for over thirty-five years after a four year stint in Chicago. Crafting, reading and playing Mah Jongg with our circle of friends are my favorite activities right after spending time with my four grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Two of my three grown daughters and one of my two grandgirls live right across the yard from my husband and I. The youngest daughter, her husband, and our grandpups live in our same town. I have been teaching a paper crafting class for over three years and the ladies in the group have become a second family. We are well and truly blessed with people and critters to love..!

Spring, Anyone?

OK…  It has been awhile!! My favorite little camera had been giving me fits and, when I finally complained about it to my DH, he discovered that the motor that powers the ‘focus’ function had gone kaput; the poor little … Continue reading

School Days – The Beginnings

My great-grandson, Aiden, is two now and has just started Nursery School.  His momma is so happy for him to have that time with playmates (and to have that time for a breather for her).  I can relate…  I spent … Continue reading
