Enjoying the simple things in life.In this age of economic uncertainty I am finding new ways to support myself.Ebay has been a good source of extra income.I am also a seller on Etsy.Mineral collecting and fluorescent minerals are my passion.Field collecting is a great hobby and I enjoy that as often as I can.Fluorescent minerals are my favorite

I also recently started making Steampunk lamps.I enjoy tearing old broken things apart and making use of what I can salvage.
