About Me

Hi..I live in Las Vegas..great city if you stay off the strip!! LOL! I've been married for 40 yrs in Dec/2018. I have 2 children and 6 grandchildren, ranging in age from almost 3 to 22 yrs old. I love my family, scrapbooking, reading, gardening, the internet, cooking and my job...in that order. I am a Business Services Administrator for a landscape supply company...(fancy name my boss calls me to say I am in charge of everything).

Favorite Music

I love all types of music, mostly rock from 60's to present day, alot of country lately..love Little Big Town and Band Perry, classical and Christmas..any version of Carol of the Bells is awesome! My son burned me a cd with over 20 different versions on it. I've seen Trans-Siberian Orchestra 3 times now and they are beyond awesome!! Had to travel to Phoenix last year as they didn't bring their show to Las Vegas...SO worth it!!

Favorite Books

I love to read! I read cookbooks for fun, scrapbook magazines. Don't really have a favorite author..but I enjoy romance, mystery and comedy books. I even still read childrens books...think Nancy Drew and Boxcar Children when the mood hits me! I have a Kindle but still prefer a real paper book over the digital and I really can't get into books on CD having someone read to me!!

Favorite Movies

I like happy movies...Very favorite is Wizard of Oz, The Long, Long Trailer w/Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz...(a relatively unknown but VERY cute movie if you Love Lucy!!) I can watch Disney classic cartoons over and over even though the kids have outgrown them now....thank goodness for the Grandkids...the family can quit groaning when they have to see me watching Cinderella for the 50th time.

Favorite Television

Got rid of cable due to ridiculously high cost and just have Netflix now. Don't really have a favorite anything anymore...just watch whatever strikes my fancy when I'm in a television mood!

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy scrapbooking, altered art, ATC, trying new recipes (thanx to Pinterest!),,,Speaking of Pinterest..can that be considered a craft??..I have some awesome boards that I love to look at when I need a happy boost!! I could..and sometimes do spend hours pinning!! I love playing with the Prima Doll stamps and have recently discovered Pocket Letters...what a simple, fun concept...can't believe no one came up with that sooner!!! I made an altered puzzle for a swap here and that was a blast..want to do another one for myself soon!!


pigs..they are just too cute!!.. and scrapbooking supplies..of all kinds! My husband swears I could open my own store at this point...he's probably right!! I also have found a new interest in dress forms since he came across two metal sculptured ones that are awesome!!


Things I like to receive:

paper scraps (especially mulberry paper...love to tear this for ATC's)


sparkly things

peacock related items

mystical things

vintage valentine, christmas, halloween, easter, victorian ephemera

ribbons of all kinds

recipes that you enjoy

Comment: Thank you for the Lovely fairy PC and for your great useless info. Your PC went to Las Vegas, Nevada the 24th and the person who got the PC there stamped the entire front of it. Real nice of them.

Comment: Hi Laura, Your delightful envelope with notes cards arrived today to brighten up my mailbox! I loved all the cards you sent, especially the one with the butterflies :) Very pretty selection of cards - thank you!! Happy you are a fan of punch studio - gorgeous paper products I think. (I'm obsessed with them truly). I have not heard of the company Pictura but I will be on the look out for it. I never can have enough note card sets!

Comment: Lovely card. Yes, I hide some of the rocks. I only ever acheived small cells when I was doing pours. Never tried alcohol inks....maybe I should. Best of luck in your creative endeavors.
