jilbert - 24 Sunday, May 2 - Saturday, May 8, 2010
My name is Jill; known here as jilbert and j-baby and jiblet and … well I’m sure you get the idea. I am a native Californian, still living in California. I am happily married, have four grown children, five grandkids, three grand-dogs, and a rather warped sense of humor. I will be hitting two big milestones in April, turning 60 (going on 39) and retiring from the company I have worked at for 35 years. My background is in mechanical design and visualization with a little programming thrown in for good measure (thus jill-of-all-trades). My art comes from growing up the daughter of a self-employed ad man who decided I would be an artist and in turn provided me with art supplies beyond the imagination of any of my peers growing up. While I chose not to pursue an art career, it was never forgotten and, with retirement, I hope to explore that side of me a bit more. I’m looking forward to my wonderful, new adventure and am happy to have discovered Polyvore and all the great Poly friends I have made.
