Passions Other Than Travel

Globe Trottin Granny loves to travel. Some seasons of life includes a lot of travel. In 2012 when I was in Sweden with my husband, who was there for a work assignment, every day was travel. Whether I was in Sweden exploring cultural differences, or traveling in another country. From the base of Sweden, traveling to other parts of Europe is much like traveling to other states in the US. I was blessed with traveling to Denmark, Italy, Greece, Greek Isles, Sicily, Crete, Turkey, Spain and France. Now back in the states, I still do some travel, but not with the frequency as before.

Introducing to you new passions close to my heart. I love to create art with fabric. Art quilting, and other varieties of creating with fabric, color and fiber.

Another passion that developed long before I became Globe Trottin Granny is missions, and charitable giving. As far back as the 70’s when I took my first mission trip to Indian tribe towns in Oklahoma, I have been drawn to a desire to help in missions. Later, I traveled with groups to Vero Beach, Fl, Roanoke, Va., and the Kenai peninsula in Alaska. In all those cases, helping with hurricane recovery, or helping elderly people build wheel chair ramps, or decks as improvements or repairs to their home. Trips to Honduras, and El Salvador showed me other needs.

Thus, I have set up a site to sell things I have created. I have been able to combine my creative desire, with my desire to give to missions and other charitable causes. All profits from the sale of my creations will go to these charitable causes. It will not go to me traveling for mission trips, that is separate, but will go to causes that I have identified that may be mission related, or other needs.

I find my fabric at! Click here. They have a wide selection of quality fabrics, and offer international shipping.

You will find my creations at Couch Bee Creations.
