About Me

I began doing paper crafting about 12 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 including VintagePhotoATC's, Character Constructions, Red Lead, Alpha Stamps, and CollageStuff. I am fairly new to the world of ATC's - only for about the last 6 months - but really enjoy making them and participating in swaps. Am always looking for a new group to swap with!

I have been married 47 years, have 3 children, and two wonderful grandsons - 6 1/2 and 3/12.. 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 are lucky enough to spend sunny winters and the remainder of the year we live in Andover Mass, where we just moved this summer to be closer to our daughter and her family, including our 4 year old grandson.

I love antiques and love using vintage and antique embellishments on my artwork. I have a thing for butterflies and owls. I also love birds, and we have always had cats until the past three years when we travel so much it makes having a pet difficult.

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 I did read "50 Shades of Gray" and loved it!!

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 97. I lost my Mom 14 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. The 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: Laurie, I love your altered flash card. Everything works together beautifully, including the schoolgirl (is she headed to math class?) Great accents, too--that 'barn star' is the perfect touch. Thank you so much--your work is always stellar!
