About Me

Well, when it rains it pours, I guess. Now I need 2 get injections n my eye 4 diabetic swelling. If I don't do it I could lose my vision. The injections give me severe headaches, as well. Would really appreciate any good/well wishes...

I am currently in an arm sling due to the fact that I injured my right hand/arm & I am right handed. I will get swaps out to people as soon as I get clearance from the doctor that I can take the sling off. Thank you for your patience!!

.I tend to like music from the 70's & 80's artists like: Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, Journey, Rod Stewart, Pet shop Boys, etc. You know, music that is considered to be oldies now!! Ha Ha Ha

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. I love a lot of shows off of Sy-Fy. The Prodigal Son, The Magicians, Vikings, Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, Van Helsing, Forged In Fire, etc.

Favorite Crafts

Most of the crafting I do is with rubber stamps, clip art, recycled items. Mostly making ATCs & cards but want to learn how to journal & make flip books, too. So many crafts; not so many hours in the day!

In 2019 I hope to develop my skills in art journals & flip books & maybe even hand made post cards=)

I like making (but am slow at it) pocket letters, ATCs, cards, scrapbook pages, etc. I like going to thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales to find goodies to craft with or recycle.
