Spring is here! Finally. Now maybe I can get to my studio and start creating again. I love to stamp. I was introduced to Stampin Up in 1999 and have been making cards since then. I started doing ATC's in Feb of 2006, and I love doing and receiving them. I belong to two stamp clubs and love the ideas we share each month.
I am a retired elementary teacher. My husband and I have three daughters, three son-in-laws, and five grandsons, as well as three great grandsons and one great granddaughter! . My family is very important to me. My mom is still with us, and will be 93 years old in September. She is fabulous, and still going strong. I thank God every day for her.
I love to read mystery and adventure novels, visit new places, and create with rubber stamps. I love the colors blue and green, and anything having to do with the fall of the year. I am open to fresh new ideas, and love seeing what others are doing. I really am enjoying all the great swaps I've gotten so far. Great ideas!
I faithfully mail by the deadline, if not before, so if you don't receive my goodies in a reasonable time please let me know as I've had some bad experiences with our mail service. I rate the same day as I receive, so if you aren't rated, I haven't received.
I love any kind of rock and roll, jazz, country western music. I think my favorite musican is Ronnie Dove, a fellow Marylander, who I've met in person several times. Having seen Brenda Lee several times I also have to include her.
Anything with Clint Eastwood or Sam Ellicott in it. Heaven Is For Real, Mama Mia and Brave One. Wild Hogs was extremely funny! I also enjoy Nell with Jodi Foster; Gone With The Wind; Grease; West Side Story; Ghost; and Gravity. Gee, looks like I haven't seen anything new for quite a while!
Mysteries: Murder She Wrote, Diagnosis Murder. Also CSI, Survivor, and Three and a Half Men. Dating myself, aren't I?! Updated, I like NCIS and NCIS LA, and NCIS New Orleans, as well as the History channel, thanks to my husband. .
Stamping, stamping, stamping. Also wood burning , weaving baskets,and cross-stitching. I enjoy altered art, and have done several books. I am holding cardmaking classes at our Senior Center, and am having a good time working with both men and women who want to make a variety of cards. I am also taking a crochet class at the Senior Center. Having trouble following those patterns!
My sweet husband gave me a 12 by 24 Amish shed and put counter tops and cabinets around the perimeter of it which is now my Studio.
I love working with all the new dies out there. There is so much you can do with them. I've discovered the envelope punch board, and besides making envelopes, I create boxes for gifts.
I grew up on a farm and raised sheep for my 4-H project. Sheep are great! My kitchen has strawberries all over it. I love blues, greens, and all pastel colors. Autumn is my favorite season, followed by Spring. Any kind of nature things appeal to me. I particularly love hummingbirds, butterflies and dragonflies. Before diabetes took over my life, I loved to bake and eat any sweets. Now fruits fill my appetite. With five grandsons, I am always looking for boy things to use with my scrapbooking. Now with 3 great grandsons and a great granddaughter, anything works!
I'm flexible! I enjoy receiving new and different things from others. Patterned papers, stickers to use with scrapbooking, tips and techniques, anything with hummingbirds or lighthouses. I like to read anything in paperback. Surprise me! I won't be disappointed.
I love to read! My favorite author is Nora Roberts. Perhaps it is because she is from Maryland, but also because her books are entertaining. She has a bed and breakfast in Western Maryland that I hope to visit some day. I also enjoy reading James Patterson, Patricia Cornwall, Nicholas Sparks, David Baldacci, John Grisham, Jan Karon, and Beverly Lewis, just to name a few!
I am pretty flexible, and will give anything or anyone a chance. I do not like nudity or rude people, though.
