About Me

Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I live in Florida---USA. I have three daughters-- 42, 38, 35 married to great husbands ---- I am their fav mother-in-law LOL.

I have six grandchildren----four boys--18, 13, 10, and 5 years old, and 2 granddaughters 15, and 2 years old.

I am married to the most awesome husband ever for 43 years! Together we pastor the church we founded 30 years ago.

I like all things scrapbooking and junk journaling, ESPECIALLY charms and beads. Love Victorian and shabby chic Love all colors but tend to keep coming back to cranberry and turquoise most often, also surround myself with the colors of fall, deep reds, burnt oranges, olive green, deep yellows. Also like lime green on some things. Pink and brown is growing on me.

Love meeting new friends and looking for the opportunity to not only meet new friends thru swap bot across the beautiful USA, but also very excited to make new friends internationally as well.

Fav crafts are just about anything-----sewing, quilting (simple square blocks on this one), crocheting-- bad habit of never reading a pattern! Stamping, Bible and art journaling, making junk journals, and scrapbooking are my favs at the mo ment. Love paper of all kinds. Love making books, journals, altered media, ATC's, fauxdori's, etc.

Have a passion for writing. Have published 10 unit studies for grades 1--6. Written and published several prayer books, looking forward to publishing my next book within the year.

Love cooking---- nothing gourmet, just good ol southern dishes, but trying to make them more healthy these days. Like trying new recipes.

Entertain a lot so always looking for hostess tips and party ideas.

Favorite Music

My husband writes great country songs and Christain music, and so he happens to be my fav singer and musician! He wrote a love song to me many years ago, that if released I know it would be a hit. It is beautiful, and I hope to live in such a way as to be worthy of it.

Love Kenny G Love Yanni Love Celine Dion ---I am a singer / songwriter also, but wouldn't we all love to have her voice!

Like GOOD country love songs, love praise and worship music. I am the worship leader at our church on Sundays.

Favorite Books

Into biographies of interesting, successful, and influential people

Love books on castles and Norman Rockwell

Into historical romance novels

All time favs are Pride and Prejudice, Lilly of the Valley, Emma

The Bible is my ALL time favorite and I endeavor to read it through every year, do not always make it, but however much I read is a good thing. I have purchased a journaling Bible and am now preparing my supplies to begin Illustrated Faith. Looking forward to this new avenue of the Bible and creativity.

Favorite Movies

All the Pirates of the Carribbean movies, Johnny Depp just made those movies happen

Again Pride and Prejudice and Emma

Anne of Green Gables still holds a special place in my heart

Favorite Television

Don't get into television to much anymore. Just have much more fun doing other things.

As my husband always said and taught it to our children, we can make a decision to watch others live life on TV or get up and live our lives to the fullest, and so that is what we chose then and still live by it. I am so glad.

Outdoor sports

Love to hunt and fish, and gator hunt ---- last year my husband and my daughter and I brought in a 10' 8" and 11' 4" pretty AWESOME

Love catching sharks, cobia, mackerel, trout

To me the best part of any hobby or craft, is using it to make a gift for others.

I love swapping trying my best to make every gift I give as special as possible. I will put every effort into the swaps I enter to make them thoroughly enjoyable to the recipient.


Favorite artist

I love books, cut out copies, etc of Norman Rockwell's artwork.

Into little things too and to TN's and art journaling.

grammag rated for JJ: Technique Journal #3 on Oct 21, 2014
Comment: Love the pearly stuff you used! I think maybe you need to use a thin spatula of a peint scraper with a beveled edge so it will get all the way to the paper instead of dragging the ink. But they are beautiful! Thank you!
