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 30 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, 35 to date! Now I have learned to make my own scrapbooks from scratch and that is so fun! I love all the pockets, flips and flaps and waterfalls that make them so unique! I love making ATC cards, and now just think those ATC coins are so cute !Also I 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 42 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 and keep very busy!

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:

Embellishment clusters

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!

favorite colors - red, yellow, orange ,aqua - not too fond of pastels

Bling, antique laces, old buttons, stick pins, Tim Holtz stuff, especially paper dolls, ephemera

40s, 50s,and 60s old ads from magazines or other places

Dick and Jane pages from the old readers

DISLIKES:

stickers!

papers....I have so many already!

Comment: Thank you soooo much for the lovely art-swap! I like the envie & LOVE what's in it; the ATC's, ATC-coin and the vintage paper ephemera! Thank you!!! And has spring arrived yet? We've had a week or two spring in februari (highly uncommon) and at the moment it looks like spring for a couple of days ... I don't like cold weather neither ... Sometimes I wonder why I was born here, although there are much colder places on earth ;-) Warm greetings, Ellen
Response: so glad you likes everything! We had a few days of spring but in the 30s last night and today......supposed to be in the 70s next week and that will be good! We need to move to a tropical place! Happy spring!

I have been to jeer the weather and have had 5 surgeries since n about a month none life threatening but kept me in no mood for much!

Comment: I loved your envelope as soon as I got it out of the mailbox! It was so pretty and beautifully textured! Your ATC Card is so cool, some beads did not stay but I am going to seal it in my Underwater ATC page and make it like a shaker- I am so excited! The extra goodies were so awesome and appreciated too! Thank you so much for a great mail day! 💙
