About Me

I began doing paper crafting about 15 years ago after attending a Stampin' Up party. I started with stamped greeting cards but have since become interested in collage, assemblage, journaling, soldering. etc. I participate in several swap groups and enjoy making ATC cards and coins, journals, collage, rolos, and all kinds of mixed media.

I have been married 52 years, have 3 children, and two wonderful grandsons - 8 and 11. I am retired so get to spend lots of time in my studio, which is my favorite way to spend free time.

My husband and I love to travel and do so as often as we can. We have a home in southern California where we have spent winters for the past 12 years. This spring we will be moving here permanently.

I love antiques and love using vintage and antique embellishments on my artwork. I have a thing for butterflies and owls. We have a little rescue dog named Little Brown who keeps us active and entertained.

We love going to the movies and see most of the new movies in the theatre as they come out. Watching a movie on TV is just not the same to me. I also love reading and usually have two books going at the same time - one on my Kindle and one hardback or paperback. I am in two reading clubs and the best thing about those is that they get me to read books I might not otherwise read. I like romance, mysteries, historical nonfiction, and some non fiction.

I love 80's music. I wish I could dance. I love William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 1800's as well as the PreRaphaelite artists.

FaceBook, Instagram, and Pinterest are some of my favorite sites to browse the internet. I would be lost without my IPhone and my Kindle. My husband says I'm a tech geek.

My sister in law Charlotte is my best friend. I have one sister and one brother, both younger. My Dad is still living and is 100. I lost my Mom 17 years ago and I still miss her.

I have two tattoos - one of a butterfly (in memory of my Mom) and one is a bee. I'd love to get another one some day and have the design all picked out.

I think my kids are some of the most interesting people I know. They love art and music and fashion and can talk about national and world affairs intelligently. They all read and listen to lots of different kinds of music.

My favorite holiday is Christmas. Halloween is a close second.

I like red wine, dark chocolate, grilled cheese sandwiches, watermelon, raspberries, crispy bacon, and York Peppermint Patties.

Comment: Another beautiful holiday project! These are my favorite type of Christmas colors - classic red/green, but not too bright or garish. I love it - thank you!

Comment: Thank you - I love it! Can I ask what paper you used (if you remember)?
Response: Thank you for your nice review. If I remember, it is a 49 & Market Christmas 6 x 6 paper pack called "Vintage Artistry Noel Collection". I also comes in 12 x 12. I love all their papers!

Comment: Oh Laurie...this takes me right back to my childhood! I love this darling version of Happy Santa, and the twinkle is almost the best part! My grandma had an aluminum Christmas tree with one of those rotating multicolored light things...ooh, to 10-year-old me, it was the most wonderful thing in the world! Thank you also for the sweet stack of extras, which make me as happy as a 10-year-old the night before Christmas!

Comment: Thank you for the nicely done altered playing cards. I see that you wrote "please hand cancel" on the envelope - they did not and it was machine cancelled. The bingo number is broken in several places but still adhered to the card and the flower centers are no longer attached. My post office won't hand-cancel unless I take the envelope to the window clerk. I hope you are staying safe.
