About

Hi and welcome to Poverty Corner!

I am a 54 year old divorced mother of two wonderful sons. I work full time as a graphic artist for a large company in my small SW Michigan town. In my spare time I love all things crafty and am continually fixing up the old Poverty Corner. I dream of moving somewhere warm. I have been in this town all my life and would like to experiance something different. Michigan winters suck!

Update…I received a congrats from wordpress on my blogs 5 year anniversary.  Wow have things changed. I started this blog at a low and lonely time in my life. 5 years later and I am in a loving relationship with a very special man and at 57 can finally say that I am home.

    I can’t really say I understand what Poverty Corner is all about. Are you (the 53 year old divorced mother of two wonderful sons) the creator of this thing? Well, I’ve lived here for only 7 years and already would like to experience something different as well!!! Actually, the reason I’m writing is this…2 years ago, there was a “story” written by dazziemae (?) about Artprize and my entry was mentioned…my piece was Michigan depicted as an 8 foot tall sculpture of a rabbit and a mitten which I christened “RABBITMITTEN.” Well, for the past 2 years, I’ve been working on a musical called Rabbitmitten. and it’s finally finished. It’s never yet been performed but this year, my Artprize entry will be the last song in the show. It’s gonna be performed by 27 kids from East GR High who will sing and dance to it…it’s called “Rabbitmitten, U.S.A.” The performance is free! It’ll be at St.Cecilia’s Music Center on Ransom and Fulton, downtown GR on Sun, Sep 25 at 4:30. It’s a combination of pop, musical theater, rock, ballet and hip hop all rolled into one!! Guaranteed fun! Try to come! If you can’t, lemme know and I’ll email you a recording of the song. For more info, call me at 616-940-9091. Thanks!!! -Alan

    • hi! well, yes, I am now 54 and I am the creator of this blog (and sadly haven’t kept it up to date- busy summer). If you read from the beginning poverty corner is the nickname of my house and I consider myself in relationship “poverty” actually. Good luck with your entry this year. I will definately try to make it.

  2. Hey, I’m with you on Michigan winters…after a mere 7 years in Michigan, I’m ready for Hawaii!!!

  3. Hey mom!

    Somehow you popped just up on my laptop screen 2 months after our extremely brief excange in September. Fate? I think it’d be fun to say hello. What do you say? By the way, if it’s still there, you can go to You Tube and type in Rabbitmitten U.S.A. and see both me and my song. My email is aldacar1@att.net Why not say hi!? – Alan
