I enjoy all kinds of music, from classical to bluegrass! I play piano and a little banjo. My favorite music to listen to is 50s-60s and Doo Wop.
I love to read and my favorite types of books are historical novels, not to be confused with historical romance. I love to read about different countries and their cultures and especially those written to depict the 1600s through the early 1900s.
I love scrapbooking and have been doing that for about 15 years! I have 4 kids who were mostly grown when I started, so it was a real challenge to get their albums done from birth to graduation! I just went in and counted all the scrapbooks I've done, 26 to date! I must admit that I am a year behind now, because I have discovered ATC cards and Swap-bot, so I don't spend as much time on the scrapbooks as I used to. Speaking of ATC's, they are just the cutest things! I can't get enough of them! I also am a card maker, and I enjoy that so much! All my friends and family wait for a special day and they know they will get a "Linda" original! I also enjoy sewing. I used to make all my clothes, but now I just sew curtains, dish towels, napkins, pillowcases and an occasional tablecloth.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 35 years! We have 4 children and 7 grandchildren. We have children in North Carolina, New York City and Kansas City, Kansas! We spend lots of time on the road to visit kids and grandkids. We are retired, but I am an RN and I try to work 1 day a week to help with travel expenses!
I sometimes think I was born in the wrong century. I love vintage and retro things, particularly from the mid 1800's to around 1966.
great and inspiring quotes, and I love to use them in my projects.
Stamping: I love stamped tissue paper, and stamped images to use in my projects.
Cricut scraps - especially small ones. And I love die cuts, too!
Jolees Boutique stickers, the 3 dimensional kind
halloween stuff - not gory, but I like cute pumpkins, ghosts, draculas, witches, haunted houses, bats, cats.....
favorite colors - red, yellow, orange ,aqua - not too fond of pastels
Bling, brads, antique laces, old buttons, stick pins, Tim Holtz stuff, especially stencils, stamps, dies
40s, 50s,and 60s old ads from magazines or other places
Dick and Jane pages from the old readers
