About Me

Married, we have 1 daughter, 2 rescue dogs and 1 cat. From CA but living in Austin, TX for 16 years now.
I love cats and dogs, they bring such joy/ love to our home.
As much as I love doing all kinds of crafts one craft I have never tried (SEWING) never learned so this month taking a class and buying myself my 1st sewing machine. Mainly want to use the sewing machine for paper crafting, embellishments and sewing into Junk Journals.
My escape room is my Art Studio which is next to the laundry room so I can do both!

Favorite Crafts

I have been stamping since 1980 but love to make cards, pocket letters, ATC cards, scrapbooking, decoupauge, collecting postcards and now Junk Journals. Although I started stamping with rubber mounted stamps but as soon as the Clear Stamps came out went crazy over those so I have both. Can't imagine ever getting rid of my old rubber mounted stamps, some even from 1980. Of course the clear stamps are so portable and very easy to store compared to the rubber mounted ones. Love, love, love DIE CUTS, can never have enough.

Craft Stores

Craft stores I love to shop at: Hobby Lobby, Michaels, JoAnne's and Tuesday Morning. OnLine: AmazonPrime. If you ask me what is my favorite store to shop I will say Hobby Lobby the only down fall they are closed on Sundays.
JoAnne's out here in Austin,TX opens at 9:00 am Mon-Fridays which is so nice.

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music: David Bowie, The Beatles, Depeche Mode, Blondie, Thompson Twins, Tears for Fears, ok I love a lot of 80's bands.

Tim Holtz

Tim Holtz, wow I love a lot of his craft tools, embellishments of course really enjoy buying them on sale. I finally bought the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, WOW it's AWESOME. I can't compare the Misti stamp platform against the Tim Holtz one but am pretty happy with it.

Travel To...

Traveled to Hawaii, China, Japan, Germany, France and England.

Currently making...

Currently making embellishments using washi tape and decoupage tags using Tim Holtz tissue paper and napkins I bought at Tuesday Morning store. Finally have a good amount of coffee/tea and mermaid stamps/embossing folders so the month of May & June I will be using these for the theme of my craft projects.

Embellishments

Embellishments of all kinds I enjoy receiving like: Eiffel Tower diecut outs, stickers, ok anything to do with the Eiffel Tower. Flower stickers, cat/dog stickers. Pansy flower stickers. Note pad sheets. Decorative napkins. Handmade paper clips. Ribbon tassels. Planner book items of any kind.
