Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Sketch Frenzy Friday SFF090911

I loved the sketch this week. I had several ideas for a card but in the end decided to go with the African animal theme. From my stash I found a couple of different animal print papers, an elephant unmounted stamp and some co-ordinating paper for the circles, strip, and sentiment. Since animal prints are one of my favourite papers the card was fun to make.

I found another quote I like on creativity. “Mortals must do what they are here to do creatively or they will become cranky”. Jill Badonsky

Have a creative day.
