About Me

I am a Christian, 50-something husband, dad and grandfather. I have been married since 1989 and we have two adult children, a daughter (math teacher) and son (pharmacy student), daughter-in-law (4th grade teacher). And a new born granddaughter!!

I have been a rubber stamper for over 30 years. I had a home based business years ago, prior to the home-party companies. I now enjoy the creativity of the craft and do not miss the business side.

I have over 3000 rubber stamps but still find a few new designs to add each year.

Favorite Crafts

I love rubber stamping, cards and AT Card and Coins primarily. I enjoy altered arts, boxes, bottles, blocks. I like to learn about other arts and craft areas such as watercolor, calligraphy and book binding.

Likes

Favorite colors: blue, green, purple.

Favorite designs: Iris flowers (my wife's favorite!), mountains, trees, hot air balloons, keys, clocks/watches, doors, windows, airplanes, Irish related, numbers, pens, vintage cars, vintage telephones, steampunk, Tim Holtz style.

Other Favorites: old dictionary pages, quotes, numbers related things.

Dislike

Please no scented items due to allergies.

Comment: This is a wonderful tag! Love all the paper quilting in the background and the added embellishments-I love sewing on paper and it is a fun look-try it-you don't have to use fabric to do quilting look! Thanks for sharing your talent. Take care and stay safe!

Comment: Wow! What a great ATC! I love idea of making a master board for a set of backgrounds! Great idea. The depth of the background is really impressive here. Very chunky and layered. And the addition of the flowers, quote, and clockface really are perfect. You have a great eye for layout, which I think is the most important part of collage. And THANK YOU for the stamps!!! So much ๐Ÿ’–. Every one with go in my collection! Even the corner stamp on the envelope! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I have never seen one like that before and I'm so excited for it. Isn't it funny, it's always the little things ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

Thank you so much for finishing up our vintage vehicle โ€œbuddy jamsโ€ for The ABCโ€™s group: SCSS#2. I especially ๐Ÿ’™ that you incorporated a bulk rate postage stamp! Your encouraging words about the group being โ€œmore joy less stressโ€ made me smile inside and out - Itโ€™s truly a pleasure having you join the creative adventures! Oh, and to answer your question about the Graphic 45 papers, they come in basic scrapbooker sized sheets or pads from 6โ€, 8โ€, and 12โ€ collections - I simply mounted a piece onto ATC sized chipboard to create our starters. If youโ€™d like me to send some your way, I have plenty to share! The Proper Gentleman and Good Olโ€™ Sport collections were a couple I stocked up on because nice papers in masculine themes are hard to find when I am scrapbooking memories of my son/hubby! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dad was very pleased with the Ephesians 3:18 ATC!! When I read the back of card to him he then quoted the verse to me. โค๏ธ
