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: Oh Laurie...I never peek at my assigned partner for these swaps, so imagine my joy when I opened your envelope and found the beauty I'd raved about on Facebook! So, so much to love here...the wee pearl buttons on one corset; the chiffon rose trim...I could go on, but suffice it to say that this is an absolute treasure. I couldn't be happier...thank you so much!

The trim is so delicate and supports the whole composition. Thank you for your beautiful work. Thank you also for the extras. Stay well my artistic friend.

Comment: Laurie! Such a delightful packet of goodness is here from you! Thank you for the variety of charming bright extras--and for the wonderful skinny, so beautifully cut and composed! The pelican focal point is somehow both very elegant and rather comical at the same time, and the whole piece has that delightful clean trademark Laurie beauty and style. I love having another piece of your art to admire and treasure! Thank you so much. :)
Response: Glad you liked it! Was happy to see you as my partner!

Comment: Dear Laurie!! How lucky was I to receive your spring postcard! It is the most perfect collage of springtime elements! Just glorious! It has found a home in a pretty yellow frame that has been empty for years. Now I can admire your art many times throughout the day! Thank you so much for this beauty! Also, thanks for the paper extras! They will be put to good use!
