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!

Playing in the Craft Room - PanPastels

This stamp is by PSX and I have had it in my collection for many years and it is time that I had it out again.  I have been wanting to play with my new PanPastels that I purchased a week or so ago.

The PanPastels were interesting to use and I think I will do more researching on the different techniques that I can use with them.  Once I coloured my stamped image I layered it over a couple of different card stock paper , added some twine, ribbon and some bling. 

Thank you for stopping to take a look.  I  now need to clean up my messy craft room.  Sometimes I think it takes me twice the time to clean the mess then the time to make the card.
