My name is Sherry Bradford (aka “Merry Sherry”). I live near Dallas, Texas – but am a transplant from Oklahoma. Originally came to the Dallas area after completing my college degree later in life (40’s) and taking up a whole new career in Technology. In previous times I’ve been a librarian, a potter, an office manager, administrative assistant, research assistant, an academic advisor, graduate student advisor, and assistant to an editor. After moving to Dallas, I became a coder, a database/business intelligence expert, a painter, a web and form developer, a digital asset manager, and a trainer and support person for a content management system. Along the way, I learned to do screen painting, airbrush, hypnosis, jewelry, some very basic welding. And now I’ve turned my interests to web content, soap making, and ballooning. All that to say, I love to learn and try new things. As I look toward eventual retirement from my corporate career, I hope that I can expand on my soaping business and web content business and enjoy finding ways to incorporate all the other things I’ve learned along the way! Oh, and I’ve tried to learn to be a drummer – but with very limited success. I keep my drum kit up next to my computer at home to inspire me that there is always more to learn!
So what’s with the name of this site? It started with crafting with drop-cloths. They are perfect for curtains, pillows, tearing into strips for banners, wrapping soap (or anything else). When trying to decide how to incorporate all the things I enjoy sharing, I thought the double-meaning would come in handy. I’m hoping you all will “drop everything” and peruse the site, and let me also learn from you. I’m not sure exactly where this journey is going to take me (or us), but I’m looking forward to the ride!
