About Me

Hello from Wisconsin! We are known for beer & brats, cheese in every variety, the Green Bay Packers, the WI Badgers, country music festivals, WI Dells, farming, and Friday night fish fries. I live in a small town near the state line between WI and IL. I retired from teaching in 2014, after 33 years dedicated to students with special needs. In late summer of 2014, we got the devastating news that my DH of 28 yrs had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I lost him on Easter Sunday. To cope with the grief and loneliness, I renewed my love for crafting and it has been good therapy for me. I have a grown daughter, Heather, age 29, with no grands in sight.

Some of my favorite things are: Colors...all shades of pink and blue, green and yellow, pink and blue combined, gold and pink combined. Hobbies...paper crafting, learning new crafting techniques, beading, sewing, taking pictures, journaling, playing with old/new fountain pens and ink, gardening (favorite garden flower is a geranium), thrifting, reading,(mystery/suspense) listening to music(country) audio books, podcasts, and spending time with my pets...4 cats and 1 dog. I love social media, esp Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram .

Themes I like: Maggie Holmes, anything related to botanicals, flowers/floral designs, bird art, combining paper and fabric, rainbows, hearts, dogs-esp. Beagles, Russian Blue cats, ( and all breeds of cats), animal lover in general, postage stamps, mail art, collage, camera graphics, reading/books/print, vintage inspired, lace trim, French Postal-script/icons, mason jars, cupcakes/sweets, butterflies, birds, (esp. hummingbirds, cardinals,and goldfinches) Tim Holtz style, baking/recipes, mixed media.

Things I'd Like to Receive: Items with a kitty, bird, butterfly or floral graphics, sequins, beads, used postage stamps, old playing cards and postcards, paper die cuts, snippets of fabric, lace, embroidery, ribbon, or textiles such as tulle, jewelry findings, wax seals, fun pens/stationery, vintage or vintage inspired images,memorabilia, tickets, graphics of windmills, Dutch boy & girl, unique buttons, paperclips,napkins for decoupage, charms, simple recipes, quotes, old book pages/ephemera for junk journals, positive/inspirational messages, handmade envies, book recommendations.

Don't need: I'm not a tea drinker, so you don't need to send tea bags in swaps.

Comment: Thanks for the beautiful APC and bonus “cookie” charm. I wish I knew what kind of playing card it was - that’s always fun for me to decipher, but I can’t figure this one out. You certainly did a thorough job altering it! 😂 I ❤️ it - the colors are cheerful & cheese cloth is a nice touch of texture. I appreciate your sharing a little bit of your creativity with me!
Response: I'm so happy that you liked the APC😊 I used white gesso as a base coat, guess it did its job! Thanks for the nice feedback and of course, the ❤

Comment: I am in awe of your punching skills. I have tried deli paper but not foil. I think the key is to layer between two thin sheets of paper.
Response: Thanks for the suggestion! I'll keep that in mind the next time I'm punching something fragile. Thanks for the ❤
