I’m Victoria (Swanson) Lavender, my husband and I live in Tucson Arizona. We’re “Zonies”. We’ve also just moved to a house that is both Southwestern Territorial and Mid Century Style. There are six grandkids with two of them around here almost daily.
We love the stark beauty of the desert and the amazing mountains and have lived here 16 years. Steve is from the Chicago area, and I grew up along the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay in Harford County Maryland, and there are times when I miss it sorely.
I’m retired from Graphic Arts, and it’s much more fun creating art I want to instead of corporate campaigns. My sister and I started the website “Kids4Crafts” in 2005. Even though we really don’t work on it anymore (much) it receives hundreds of visitors each week. Just recently lost the .com on it but it’s still very much alive at Kids4Crafts.net. or Kids4Crafts.blogspot.com
I got the moniker and business license “Victoria Lavender” when I started a lavender based toiletries business for farmers markets. It was fun...for a little while. Too hot most of the time for me.
To stay busy I started another webblog for my adult crafts and card making, Victoria Lavender.net. Currently playing under “Sunny in Tucson”.
Now I post on my card crafting, my casa, recipes, vintage and other good stuff in my life. It’s so wonderful chatting with readers and friends online and sharing projects and post ideas. Thank you so very much for your visits and comments. Bloggers like you are what makes the internet so much fun.
Peace & hugs,
