About Me

I am a Christian, 50-something 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: Thanks for the awesome heart flower ATC. I don't know how you come up with such great ideas for interactive ATC's. They always turn out great!! So happy to have you as my partner again. Happy Swapping!!
Response: the first versions of these interactive ATCs usually don't turn out so great. I thought the heart would be easy, so i cut a number of blanks. But then i got the hearts flipped the wrong way and learned the heart is not perfectly symmetrical. I am no doing a whole proto type before I go into projection mode!! Glad you liked it.

hibiscus on May 28, 2022:

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 “buddy jams” for The ABC’s group: SCSS#2. I especially 💙 that you incorporated a bulk rate postage stamp! Your encouraging words about the group being “more joy less stress” made me smile inside and out - It’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 6”, 8”, and 12” collections - I simply mounted a piece onto ATC sized chipboard to create our starters. If you’d like me to send some your way, I have plenty to share! The Proper Gentleman and Good Ol’ 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! 😉

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. ❤️
