About Me

I am recently retired and now have the time to truly stop and "smell the roses"! I was diagnosed with both breast and kidney cancers eleven years ago. What an adventure that was! Early detection saved my life and I have much to be thankful for. I am quite fond of unique and antique items. More often than not I will find something interesting at an antique mall, flea market, or garage sale that will call out to me. I've purchased a multitude of dustable "treasures" that way. I enjoy decorating for all holidays, but Halloween is my favorite. I like to do counted cross stitch on aged linen using reproduction sampler patterns and/or primitive charts. I'm a big fan of note papers, ribbons, and vintage stickers, too.

Comment: Lovely little Valentine journal page...thank you so much! I do really love the "traditional" 4x4 pages, although I think most group members prefer the larger formats now. And Sylvia! What did I do to deserve such a fabulous envelope full of goodies? Oh, the Farmers Almanac cookbooks! I've already chosen several that I intend to make! You are an extremely generous swap partner, and I can't thank you enough.
Response: Unfortunately, my creativity doesn’t lend itself to my culinary skills. After reading your profile, I thought you might be able to put the cookbooks to use. I’m happy to know that you are enjoying the the items I sent winging your way. I, too, am fond of the 4x4 journal pages. Thank you for the rating . . . and the heart, too!

Comment: Sylvia, this is really beautiful. I'm just in love with all the images you used. Your pockets are perfect and I love all the little tags (some of them stamped!) and other bits inside. I can't believe you created all those special embellished paper clips! I'm crazy for the ticket one from the Egyptian Theatre! The little cat die cut on the front is adorable and those corners! Are those die cuts? Gorgeous. I'll also be hoarding that gorgeous napkin you sent! A napkin with a scalloped edge--SO fancy! Many thanks for a wonderful swap.
Response: Thank you for the kind comments, rating . . . and the heart, too. I truly enjoyed putting this folder together. As you can readily see, I’m partial to paper and glue. Yes, I do use die cuts.
