Ginger Stevens is a soon to be 60-something grandmother residing in Knoxville, TN. I was “raised” in the Tri-cities of upper East Tennessee primarily in Johnson City, Jonesborough , Gray and Boones Creek. I attended Daniel Boone High School and East Tennessee State University. I have spent almost 30 years working in Call Centers and currently on the Funding Escalation Team assisting Merchants with understanding billing, statements and fees.
I have Three Grandsons and Two Grown Daughters. In 2005 I remarried and started a new chapter. I married Bill Stevens and now have 3 Step Daughters and one grandson from that side of the Family.
I have spent some time as a member of the SCA – Society of Creative Anachronism. We are a historical recreation group re-creating the Current Middle Ages and historically focusing on the time of 500 AD – 1603 AD. I have personae of a 13th century Lady living in Edinburgh, Scotland, who has traveled much and learned more.
My personae and myself are interested in herbs, weaving, sewing, handcrafts, cooking, gardening, art of several forms, fencing , and Archery. My current focus is Relief Woodcarving of the Middle Ages. To do all this, I also am interested in research!!
I am also a faithful follower of many things spiritual, reading much and practicing the best I can. You will often find a copy of some religious text or book of a spiritual nature on my lap. I am currently working on combining several of my blogs to this one.
