I love having a creative outlet and meeting other creative people...talking shop makes me giddy. I have been scrapbooking and making cards for about 18 years.
My wonderful husband and I love to travel...especially the national parks and Route 66 ...the USA is such a beautiful and diverse country..We love to go camping, cruises, and the shore.
Since joining Swap-bot, I now have a new hobby/obsession...stuffing envies with personalized items from other's profiles for swaps!! Wow! I have so much fun creating special packages for fellow swappers! I love class kits and inspiration kits so making envies for swappers makes me giddy with excitement...it's so cool to think of what someone may create with items I sent them. It makes me smile to think that someone's day will be brighter when they receive my swap in the mail.
Things that make me happy include:
*time to create
*ANTIQUING!!!!!! I live in Pennsylvania and we have the best antiquing!
*"stalking" creative blogs ;-)
*watching how-to YouTube videos
*hearing the sounds of my jars popping when canning
*packages in the mail
*beautiful rainy days
*my scrapbooking "studio" (a.k.a. our old spare bedroom)
*doing something nice for someone just to ease their day
*moments of content
*reading on my hammock under the grape arbor
I adore "Somerset Life" magazine and love the magazine "Where Women Create".
My passion is paper crafting...scrapbooking, card making, altered art, mini albums, rubber stamping, canvas art, altered journals, making hatpins/stickpins...
I very much appreciate the vintage style and shabby chic.
My style is more sophisticated rather than cutesy.
