About Me

I guess you would call me a old fashion girl.I like anything that is vintage or old looking.I have been doing crafts for about 20 years and I do primitive folkart.My latest passion is the paper arts.Give me a vintage photo and some colored paper and I am a happy camper.I love to incorporate vintage images into my work.The older looking the better,I fear I am a old spirit trapped in a modern world. I will always rate.If I have not rated you please let me know.If you have not received from me please let me know ,I am not a flaker.

I have five grandchildren and really enjoy doing things with them.I live with my wonderful DH and four crazy critters, all of which are cats.I also raise fancy birds.Silkie chickens and white doves.

My favorite colors are brown with blue,pink,or sage green.Burgundy and sage green are favorites also.I love to do Zentangles,collage,and drawing.I am a folk artist and do a few local craft shows each year.I try to teach the children to enjoy art and to express themselves.I love anything with a vintage shabby theme.

Please don't leave me a bad rating as I will do whatever I can to correct a problem.If you are not happy please give me a chance to correct the problem.My rating are important to me.I will rate you the same day as I receive your swap

Comment: Gorgeous! Loved the library card too. TYSVM!
donetta rated for AACG: Shabby Layered Tag on May 21, 2020
Comment: Oh Linda, it's beautiful! I adore pink...I think that makes me a "girly girl" (an old decrepit girly girl)! I adore the beautiful birds, and your use of book pages is the perfect accent. I'm all moved...technically...but I still can't find a place to sit in my craft room! I guess I'd forgotten how much stuff (oh, SO much stuff) I had in storage, and it's a bit overwhelming to try to find appropriate and convenient places for all of it. It's a bit like inheriting a craft store...lovely and all...but where to PUT everything is the burning question! I am SO far behind on my swaps and had better get a handle on things so I can get busy crafting! I am happy and well, and hope you are, too!

Comment: Thanks so much for your fun Skinny! I like how you kept it all in neutral tones.Thanks for the extras and it's nice to have another person in this round.
lmacdavis93 rated for Spring Garden Glue Book Page on May 20, 2020
Comment: Hi again Linda - 3 swaps in one day! Talk about happy mail! Your spring glue book page is just beautiful. I love that you used vintage seed package images and the little picket fence at the bottom is just the perfect touch. I really enjoy these glue book pages so am so glad you signed up for this one. Thanks for this beautiful page!
Comment: Linda thank you for the adorable beetle tag. I had the hardest time finding a good beetle image to use and if I'd had this cute beetle stamp it would have been much easier than trying to cut out little legs and antennae! Love the paper you used and the pretty red sparkly fiber trim. Thank you for another fun swap!
Comment: Oh Linda I love these 2 postage style journal cards you made! They both turned out beautifully and are going into my junk journal. And thank you so much for the fun little extras. As much "stuff" as I have in my craft room I am amazed how often I get extra goodies that I have never seen before. Thank you so much for a great swap!

Linda! In my mailbox was the most amazing little gift from you...an absolutely GORGEOUS "charming" safety pin! Thank you so much for this uplifting, smile-inducing gesture of love and friendship! Please know that I feel exactly the same way; you are more than a swap partner/friend...I consider you a "real" friend! You made my day (and yesterday was a very stressful day)...I feel very lucky to count you among my friends. xoxo
