About Me

Married, 25 years, we have 1 daughter, 3 rescue dogs and 1 cat. From CA but living in Austin, TX for 18 years now.
I love cats and dogs, they bring such joy.

My escape room is my Art Studio which is next to the laundry room so I can do both!

Please NO RELIGIOUS items, thank you!

Favorite Crafts

I have been stamping since 1980 but love to make cards, pocket letters, ATC cards, scrapbooking, decoupauge, collecting postcards and now Junk Journals. Although I started stamping with rubber mounted stamps but as soon as the Clear Stamps came out went crazy over those so I have both. Can't imagine ever getting rid of my old rubber mounted stamps, some even from 1980. Of course the clear stamps are so portable and very easy to store compared to the rubber mounted ones. Love, love, love DIE CUTS, can never have enough. Enjoy making embellishments with fabric strips. New love for PEACOCKS (stamps. Diecuts, stickers) but hard to find out here in Austin, TX.

Craft Stores

Craft stores I love to shop at: Hobby Lobby, Michaels, JoAnne's and Tuesday Morning. OnLine: AmazonPrime. If you ask me what is my favorite store to shop I will say Hobby Lobby the only down fall they are closed on Sundays.
JoAnne's out here in Austin,TX opens at 9:00 am Mon-Fridays which is so nice.

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music: David Bowie, The Beatles, Depeche Mode, Blondie, Thompson Twins, Tears for Fears, ok I love a lot of 80's bands.

Tim Holtz

Tim Holtz, wow I love a lot of his craft tools, embellishments of course really enjoy buying them on sale.

Travel To...

Traveled to Hawaii, China, Japan, Germany, France and England.


Embellishments of all kinds I enjoy receiving like: Eiffel Tower diecut outs, stickers, ok anything to do with the Eiffel Tower. Flower stickers, cat/dog stickers. Pansy flower stickers. Note pad sheets. Decorative napkins. Ribbon tassels. Planner book items of any kind. Old library cards. Old Postage Stamps. Postcards old or new.


Love finding Old book pages., map pages, tickets, Emphera from France, Germany & England are my favorite items to use (hoard)

Tea Drinker

I love tea & love trying new flavors.

New Stuff I love....

Love Moomin sadly it's not popular in the states. My niece in Sweden introduced me & am loving it. Also love Alice in Wonderland.
