Marianne Hegg

Hi there!  Welcome to my page that shares a little about me. In addition to creating, I am a mom of three wonderful kids, I have a great husband and a full time job. One may say I am a little bit busy. Somehow, we get it done!  Soccer, gymnastics, swimming, judo, monopoly, chess, and lots and lots of painting time! Phew! I am spinning just thinking about it!  However, I wouldn't change a thing! This part - this creative side - gives me my 'something else' that helps me smile in the chaos.  I hope you enjoy my blog and my books as you join my family and I in the fun!
