About Me

I am a Christian, 60 year old husband, dad and grandfather. I have been married since 1989 and we have two adult children, a daughter (math teacher) and son (pharmacist), daughter-in-law (4th grade teacher). And a cute as they come granddaughter!!

I have been a rubber stamper for over 30 years. I had a home based business years ago, prior to the home-party companies. I now enjoy the creativity of the craft and do not miss the business side.

I have over 3000 rubber stamps but still find a few new designs to add each year.

Favorite Crafts

I love rubber stamping, cards and AT Card and Coins primarily. I enjoy altered arts, boxes, bottles, blocks. I like to learn about other arts and craft areas such as watercolor, calligraphy and book binding.

I have added jewelry and wood buring to my "things to do in the future" list of projects.

Likes

Favorite colors: blue, green, purple.

Favorite designs: Iris flowers (my wife's favorite!), mountains, trees, hot air balloons, keys, clocks/watches, doors, windows, airplanes, Irish related, numbers, fountain pens, vintage cars, vintage telephones, steampunk, Tim Holtz style.

Other Favorites: old dictionary pages, quotes, numbers related things.

Alway interested in a good visual pun.

Dislike

Please no scented items due to allergies.

Comment: Hello David! Thank you so much for the awesome travel journal! I love it! I'm not sure that you know it but on the front you've used a piece of map that shows where we lived for a while. We lived in Yorktown very close to Virginia Beach! You must have planned that! Thank you too for all the tags and cut-outs! They are lovely! A bucket of hearts for you! โค๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

what you created for the junque jams was absolutely ah...mazing! the depth and the arrangement of the elements was just beautiful...what a truly lovely atc this made...love it!

Poeprincess on May 26, 2022:

Dave, this ABC #15 is fabulous! Love what you did with the elements. Thank you so much!

CookieMomster78 on May 6, 2021:

Thank you so much for finishing up our vintage vehicle โ€œbuddy jamsโ€ for The ABCโ€™s group: SCSS#2. I especially ๐Ÿ’™ that you incorporated a bulk rate postage stamp! Your encouraging words about the group being โ€œmore joy less stressโ€ made me smile inside and out - Itโ€™s truly a pleasure having you join the creative adventures! Oh, and to answer your question about the Graphic 45 papers, they come in basic scrapbooker sized sheets or pads from 6โ€, 8โ€, and 12โ€ collections - I simply mounted a piece onto ATC sized chipboard to create our starters. If youโ€™d like me to send some your way, I have plenty to share! The Proper Gentleman and Good Olโ€™ Sport collections were a couple I stocked up on because nice papers in masculine themes are hard to find when I am scrapbooking memories of my son/hubby! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dad was very pleased with the Ephesians 3:18 ATC!! When I read the back of card to him he then quoted the verse to me. โค๏ธ
