Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by to visit my little corner of the blogging world. I'm Ann, the real person behind November Rose.  Let me tell you a little about myself.

I  just wrapped-up a 28 year career as a teacher, Literacy Specialist, and Instructional Coach.  Now I have the time to do all the things I love!

I love crafting and do-it-yourself projects. I think this obsession started in middle/high school when I dug an antique ice box out of a neighbor's barn (with their permission, of course) and spent the summer restoring it. That did it, I was hooked! I love to restore, refinish, repurpose all sorts of things. I'm also an avid reader and gardener. There's nothing more therapeutic than digging in the dirt! Paper crafting became another passion in the late '90's and now I have this blog to share it all with you.

I hope you will continue to visit my blog, maybe even become a follower, and leave a comment from time to time. I'd love to hear what inspires you, makes you smile, and maybe makes you say, "Hey, that's a good idea!"

Thanks for being here!
