Who Is Peabea?

Update: It’s been a while since I first did the about me back around 2009 or earlier so thought I’d add an update. I still love taking photos, doing crafts, write poems, and all the things I listed earlier. Lately, I have been getting more into trying my hand at doing more of the digital scrapbooking graphic and kits. 

In 2019, I lost the love of my life. My best friend. I married my HS sweetie when I was only 17, and we were married 56 years. I’ve been learning to navigate being alone. Then about the time, I felt like getting out and about, the pandemic hit. Making masks, and keeping busy has helped. I’m in a good place right now. Miss him terribly though, but God has is seeing me through day by day.

Earlier about me. All about me: I’ll try to keep this to a minimum. I love to write, take photos, write poems, do webpages, and I’ve always done crafts of one sort or another. My latest is learning to do Bible Journaling as I read through the Bible.

In the summer, you’ll find me hanging out with the hubby doing some fishing and mostly just lazing around.

I am a mom of three grown children, a grandmom of 5, great grand-mom of 2, and a wife of one. *SMILES*. Plus a mom to one spoiled dog named Razzy.

After all my years of working as an Administrative Assistant, I am currently among the retired. For a bit, I tried my hand doing freelance writing for Examiner.com as their Columbus Grandparents Examiner and the Childrens Books Review Examiner. My articles are still there if you’d like to take a peek.

I recently upgraded my camera to a Nikon DSLR so am having fun learning all about that technology. I’ve loved taking pictures since I won my first ‘Brownie Camera’ selling flower seeds when I was in third grade. It was the kind that the top lifted up and you looked down in to frame up your subject. Loved that camera!!

Peabea’s Patch is about sharing Photography and Crafts. I’m currently enjoying experimenting in Adobe Photoshop Elements as well as working on making the Purses that I sell as well as other crafts.

If anyone would like to participate on my site by sharing your favorite photography or crafts or even to just write about them, please let me know and I will arrange the link up for you.

All input is appreciated. God Bless, Have an Awesome day, and Thanks for visiting my patch!!

  1. You moved to wordpress? Cool – only I can’t find your current post! Am having a thing too, but it’s definitely my computer – maybe internet connection. But it can’t be fixed untill March 8!!

  2. Thank you for your kind compliment – most of drawing and painting is plain hard work and practicing till you drop:):) But I still love it!
    You have a wordpress blog! I wonder why you do the Pictoral Tue on Blogspot? Isn’t having one blog easier? I do All Seasons with the V20 linkytools (dot) com on my wordpress blog and they give great support if there’s a problem.

    1. True, I have two blogs. I have had blogger much longer than was at WordPress for quite a while and actually they informed me that I was getting out of space so I went back to Blogger. I have done a couple of Spark blog post here and also on Blogger. I just find Blogger to be more user friendly when it comes to html and WordPress actually puts more limits on a blog. I guess because I came from the era of GeoCities and when we made pages purely by using html. I like some feel to WordPress so thought would try to use it again. I just don’t delete it because I have so much on WordPress that I’d lose or have to move over so I keep it, but am not actively using WordPress that much. Thanks for visiting me here and enjoyed reading your comment. πŸ™‚

      1. I used to be at Blogspot, but when they changed their privacy policy, I went over to WordPress.
        Don’t know how long ago it was you ran out of space at WordPress, but I ran out last year July, but they told me to choose another blog theme/look, and then I could have new “space” again. The neat thing about wordpress is that I can chat with you back and forth without having to leave my blog (so it saves a lot of time) – but I don’t do much with html, so for me it’s not an issue.
        Thank you for writing me back, Blog Friend:)

  3. Hi there, how are you? I was browsing around your blog and saw where you have the Pictorial Friday Link up Party but I didn’t see where to link up. Am I overlooking it? Thanks πŸ™‚

    1. That is awesome. The link is usually for week or two, but I haven’t done it lately, but I’m thinking of bringing it back so should be up right after the Labor Day holiday after I make a few tweaks to it. Hopefully, when I do you will still stop by to link up. I’ll be sure to let you know when it goes live. Thanks again.
