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!

Blog Hop at Get Inky! Challenges

Hi, and welcome to the Get Inky! Farewell & Welcome Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Jessica's blog

If you happened to have stumbled into the hop mid-way be sure to start at the Get Inky! Challenge Blog for a chance to win a fun prize!

The blog hop is saying goodbye to our previous team members, and welcoming our current members, some of whom are new to Get Inky!

For my project I created a birthday card and gift bag for my grandson River's 5th birthday this week. I used a digital image from Get Inky stamps called "
out of this world ship”. This set of images has lots of possibilities. It can be found in their Esty shop.
