Hi! My name is Arvilla and I am a child of God who is a wife, mother, grandmother and retired Salvation Army Officer.  I have been happily married to Don Hostetler since September 13, 1969.  We have four children and thirteen grandchildren. We are now retired and live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

In my retirement I am indulging in my creativity for quilting, painting and crafting.  I mostly love to quilt and sew but even so I find I cannot stay away from the paint brush for very long.  I love to “create” and become excited to see those creations come to fruition.

The title of this blog is “Arvey’s Creations.” The name Arvey is a childhood nickname given me by my friends and as such holds special meaning for me.

In order to “fund my habit” I have  become a vendor at arts & craft fairs and festivals. I have discovered that I really do enjoy these events because of all the individuals that I meet at these events: other vendors, browsers, and customers. I have even had the privilege to pray with a few folks!

This retirement thing is working out well for me!
