Hi, my name is Susan Parnell. I live in Dallas, TX with my husband and 2 rescue dogs, Cooper (an Airedale) and Dutchie (a black lab). I love to create vintage inspired banners, treat bags, tags, paper crafts and stamping. I like shimmery, sparkley, seasonal decor and celebrate all the major holidays! I enjoy crafting, cooking & baking. I've been known to create 150 decorated mini jam jars for a women's event at our church.
I enjoy reading Historical Fiction! My favorite book is The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. I've recently read The Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly, The Masterpiece by Fiona Davis, Bellewether by Susanna Kearsley, Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. I'm currently reading The Last Carousel of Provence by Juliet Blackwell.
My favorite movie to date is Miss Potter with Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. Another favorite is The Spitfire Grille.
I love using my Big Shot, decoupage, stationery, vintage labels, stickers, doo dads, ribbon, vintage millinery flowers, vintage nut cups, brads, unique safety pins with brass animals attached. I also enjoy learning new techniques, stamping, collecting and sharing my creations!
I love Brenda Walton - her beautiful calligraphy, scrapbook and craft items, her Pinterest boards.
I relish Julie Collings creations and her Etsy shop!
I love Mary Kate McDevitt calligraphy, fonts and artistic style.
I am an Europhile - A person who is fond of, admires, or loves European culture, society, history, food, etc. My dream is to one day travel to Europe.
I'm currently reading The Last Carousel in Provence by Juliet Blackwell. The heroine is Cady who is creating a coffee table of Parisian carousels!
I would also love to spend time in England, specifically The Lake District where Beatrix Potter donated over 4,000 acres to The National Trust.
