About Me

I began doing paper crafting about 15 years ago after attending a Stampin' Up party. I started with stamped greeting cards but have since become interested in collage, assemblage, journaling, soldering. etc. I participate in several swap groups and enjoy making ATC cards and coins, journals, collage, rolos, and all kinds of mixed media.

I have been married 52 years, have 3 children, and two wonderful grandsons - 8 and 11. I am retired so get to spend lots of time in my studio, which is my favorite way to spend free time.

My husband and I love to travel and do so as often as we can. We have a home in southern California where we have spent winters for the past 12 years. This spring we will be moving here permanently.

I love antiques and love using vintage and antique embellishments on my artwork. I have a thing for butterflies and owls. We have a little rescue dog named Little Brown who keeps us active and entertained.

We love going to the movies and see most of the new movies in the theatre as they come out. Watching a movie on TV is just not the same to me. I also love reading and usually have two books going at the same time - one on my Kindle and one hardback or paperback. I am in two reading clubs and the best thing about those is that they get me to read books I might not otherwise read. I like romance, mysteries, historical nonfiction, and some non fiction.

I love 80's music. I wish I could dance. I love William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 1800's as well as the PreRaphaelite artists.

FaceBook, Instagram, and Pinterest are some of my favorite sites to browse the internet. I would be lost without my IPhone and my Kindle. My husband says I'm a tech geek.

My sister in law Charlotte is my best friend. I have one sister and one brother, both younger. My Dad is still living and is 100. I lost my Mom 17 years ago and I still miss her.

I have two tattoos - one of a butterfly (in memory of my Mom) and one is a bee. I'd love to get another one some day and have the design all picked out.

I think my kids are some of the most interesting people I know. They love art and music and fashion and can talk about national and world affairs intelligently. They all read and listen to lots of different kinds of music.

My favorite holiday is Christmas. Halloween is a close second.

I like red wine, dark chocolate, grilled cheese sandwiches, watermelon, raspberries, crispy bacon, and York Peppermint Patties.

Comment: Love the card. Like how you were sewing around the bunny. Sadly my machine does not like paper and just eats it. Love the layered look of the background. Thank you for the extras.

Comment: Thank you for the tag. FYI...the washi tape did not keep the envelope flap closed. It arrived open but the tag was still inside. Take care.
Response: Thanks for letting me know! I will make sure that I add some regular tape from now on as well as the washi.

Comment: Hi Laurie! What a gorgeous pocket! I'm in love with the big dragonfly image--insects are so beautiful in their own way, so long as they're not on me! Loved all the sweet inserts in the pocket, too. You always send the nicest things, Laurie; it's such a pleasure to swap together.

Comment: Laurieeeeee! Your envie just arrived! SQUEEE!...I totally did not realize you were going to be my partner, so I was happily surprised to see an envelope from you to begin with. And then I opened it and was dazzled! These two journal pockets are just exquisite. I feel so lucky. You've made them so beautifully and with such care...a very high bar! I will treasure them. And when you add in all of the most beautiful ephemera extras you sent, you have totally made my day! Thank you, thank you. <3 I hope to return the favor soon. xoxo

Comment: Laurie, thank you so much for this gorgeous card! Love the vintage artsy-ness of it, all the detail from the beautiful swag earrings and pearl necklace to the sparkly crushed glass glitter that really makes this collector's piece REALLY stand out. I love it, and have it displayed on my desk. Lucky me for being on the receiving end of this swap. Thanks too for the little packet of goodies, can't wait to use them!

Comment: Hi Laurie! These are adorable! After seeing how yours turned out, I wished I had some small doilies to work with. Love the sweet embellishments on the front of each and all those 'love'ly enclosures. I must add that I enjoyed your 'wildlife' envelope SO MUCH. That bear on the front, the deer on the back and the wildlife stamps--all on an earth-brown envelope really spoke to me! I'm always so appreciative when people take time to make their envelopes as special as the swap. Thanks bunches!

Comment: Laurie, your February Rolo is so delicate and beautiful and each element oozes with LOVE. The background, the stamps, gray, pink and red layering of hearts, dictionary scrap and the pop of the gold cupid, it is just in perfect balance. I can see you have learned plenty from Margarette. Another beauty from Laurie in my collection. Thank you also for the perfectly selected and trimmed extras. Stay well my good friend.

Comment: Such a stylish and sophisticated fashion plate Laurie! Nothing says 1920s fashion like a lady wearing beautiful cloche hat. I love this image and all the gold finery on your card. It’s going to complement my “ladies” junk journal perfectly. And thank you for the extras too, always just right!
