About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

Still on Vacation

I am still on vacation and we are in Mesa right now. I am not getting as much crafting done as I would have liked to. It is pretty restrictive in a small trailer. I did get to a nice Scrapbook and Stamping store in downtown Yuma and purchased a few things I have not seen at home.

I also visited a wonderful shop in Bisbee owned by artist Julie Haymaker Thompson. She inspired me to try some paper clay. I am excited to do some playing with it when I return home. Her work is shown in a new art book called Creative Pilgrimage and also in January’s 2012 Somerset Workshop magazine.   Check her work out at:



In Tucson I visited Terry Medaris Art Stamps and made a purchase of a few new rubber stamps . He is an amazing artist. I am looking forward to playing with them when I return home.


In Mesa I was able to get together with paper artist Diana Enns, from one of my stamping groups. We had a good time talking about the group, paper crafting and she provided me with info on other crafting areas to explore and other creative groups. It was very nice meeting her in person.  Now I can put a face on the person I talk to online regularly.

Happy crafting everyone and thanks for stopping by.
