About Me

I began doing paper crafting about 20 years ago after attending a Stampin' Up party. I started with stamped greeting cards but have since become interested in collage, assemblage, journaling, soldering, book making, junk journaling. 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 54 years, have 3 children, and two wonderful grandsons - 10 and 13. 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 but I am originally from the mid west.

I love antiques and love using vintage and antique embellishments on my artwork. I have a thing for butterflies and owls. We have 3 little rescue dogs named Little Brown, Pip, and Kiké who keep us and on our toes.

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 mysteries, historical fiction, 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 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.

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

Comment: Hi! Sorry for the delay getting to you to rate. I haven’t been online much because I have Covid (again!). Anyway, I love the collaged index card that you’ve sent me and the goodies! I love the vintage style and the many layers you put on the index card. The goodies are very cool as well especially the paper with the lady on it and the vintage-looking, glassine bag! Thanks for everything!

Comment: Thanks for this beauty you sent! This swap was a learning experience. That's for sure. I kept thinking that the cover fold should be tucked in somewhere before the end... Yours is perfect! I love the colors and the gold accents! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Such adorable stamps Laurie! I really like these. They're fun to put together and the stamps add the perfect final touch to any project. I'm excited to use your lovelies in my envelope cascade journal. The cover consist of several envelopes layered on top of each other in a staggered fashion. Some envelopes are real, used envelopes with cancelled postage. And other envelopes are freshly printed and are in need of postage stamps. So how perfect is this! Thanks also for the wonderful stash of ephemera!

Comment: Oh, Laurie, a porcupine never looked so good! What a beautiful and unusual ATC. I just love the embossed base, the lovely leaves, and really enjoyed the landscape view. I never think to do that! Gorgeous work (as always); I'm so glad we were partnered again!
