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: Laurie, I always do the happy dance when I see your return address on my mail! This album is really special. I'm loving the back-to-school theme since it's that time of year. All the images and bits you used are just wonderful. Love the school pictures, the pen + pen nib, the ruler and the map! I remember having a map in every classroom. And those precious flash cards! Love it all. You're my go-to gal for new ideas ;+)

Comment: Oooooh, it's beautiful, Laurie! I adore all the collage elements, and your puzzle piece is perfect on the rolo. This is going on my inspiration board before I put it in my rolodex (actually, I use a photo box, all decorated, with 2 chopsticks glued in place for the rolo holes to straddle). It is always such a pleasure to swap with you!

Comment: Lucky me--once again! Laurie, these are just SO much fun! I'm especially taken with the page flags and the paper you used--the cutest little witches and kitty cat. On to the shakers! They're so whimsical and fun and that paper is sweet, too! They're sewn perfectly, too, and love that little 'Spooky' floating around inside each litle pocket. And those mini envies, all beautifully decorated and embellished. My absolute favorite is the one with the tiny crow king on it! Thank you so much for sending me such lovely items; you're the best!

Comment: Laurie, I feel so blessed to receive your version of this; it's simply beautiful! I'm in love with your snippets of 'real' ephemera and all the other gorgeous images you used. Love the little fold-out note spaces and the way you 'closed' the front cover. I completely agree about how involved it was to create; I thought, 'there CAN'T be another 'side' to decorate!' Like you, I enjoyed it after surrendering to its many steps. Thank you for always sending something I feel I could have bought on etsy! You're an amazing artist.

Comment: Hi Laurie~ I just love you pocket tags. Your embellishments are a perfect mix of collaged images and it's all in one of my favorite themes. Love the butterfly images, the bingo tag, and your little 'No.' accents--those really make it look so finished. My favorite piece is the little tiny envelope with the playing cards inside. Perfection!

Comment: Nice journal cards. I also like the fact that we have something leftover to use for another project. When I was creating mine my husband looked at me as to say why am I sewing on paper. 🧐😂
Response: that sounds exactly like something my husband would say!!
