About Me

I am a retired teacher with married children and grandchildren who fill me with pride and joy. I have been married over 45 years to a husband I love and respect. I love to garden, craft and create. Recently, zentangles and doodle art have peaked my interest. We have no pets, but we enjoy bird watching. I must say I am thankful for all of the blessings God has given me.

Favorite Crafts

I have had many favorite crafts from crochet to macrame to silk embroidry to scrapbooking to jewelry making, and others. I would consider crocheting an all time favorite. I do enjoy papercrafting. I love to make ATCs. And I always like making cards. I did some scrapbooking, even taught classes. I love taking pictures, but I have so many photos that I get frustrated making my own scrapbook. Rubber stamping is the focus of most of my paper craft projects but not all. I have been stamping for about thirty years and have many, many stamps. I am always looking for something new and different or very versatile. I have been enjoying zentangles lately and I like doodle art. That keeps me busy right now.

Favorite Books

I like inspirational books, craft books, children's books of all sorts, and fairy books. I am not an avid reader but enjoy some things that come out on the best seller list.

Favorite Movies

Favorite movies: Anything that is light hearted and happy suits me.

Favorite Music

I enjoy easy listening music and some classical. I like country music if I'm in the mood. Christian music is great and I LOVE Christmas music.

Things I Like

fairy I fancy Fairies (figurines, prints, jewelry, books, anything with fairies), but pretty fairies, graceful young fairies, not cutsy or weird ones. Things having to do with fairies such as butterflies, ladybugs and dragonflies suit me. And fantasy appeal to me too. I also like vintage items, ie. vintage images and bits of lace or ribbon and old buttons. I have started a collection of vintage buttons. I like gardening so I like flowers and ferns and, well, back to the fairy kind of thing.

My Styles

flowerfairy I seem to choose rich colors, the jewel tones, over pastels. I enjoy oriental themes and have studied Chinese brush art. Since most things vintage appeal to me, I choose that style often. You will see flowers a lot in my projects. I revisit old techniques sometimes but I like to learn and try new things too.

Just a note

It's nice to see others ideas and the project that brings the idea to reality. I appreciate the effort someone puts into that project. I like to look at techniques used and sometime try to learn a little bit. Mostly, I like seeing that someone cares enough to do their best when they complete a project to send out. I try to make that my goal when I make something to mail.
