Favorite Music

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.

Favorite Books

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.

Favorite Crafts

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.

Family life

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!

About Me

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.

LIKES:

vintage ephemera.

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

DISLIKES:

animal stickers

stickers in general, unless they are vintage, or cardstock stickers, or Jolee's type, and also I like K & Co. stickers/ephemera

papers....I have so many already!

Comment: Thank you so much for the cute Halloween ATC. Love it! And also many thanks for all the extras and goodies you sent in that wonderfully decorated envelope with all the pretty stamps. It was such a joy to receive. I love Halloween, too, although it is traditionally not a big holiday over here. But more and more people seem to get into it.

Comment: Thank you for the exceptional swap package. I love the decorated envelope and the Thoreau postage stamp. Then inside ... all that glorious color! Thank you for the beautiful postcard and the description of your techniques. The alcohol ink butterflies are delicious -- that touch of aqua! Fabulous quote on that one too. The lighthouse card is simple and atmospheric with a perfect quote and color palette. And last but not least the Dream tag is dreamy! :) You outdid yourself. Thank you for such a beautiful and inspiration package of goodies. <3<3<3
