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!

Celebration Blog Hop - Fitztown

 It is the official one year anniversary for the Fitztown Challenge blog. We are devoting the entire week to the theme of the challenge, which is celebrations, i.e. birthdays, anniversaries, new baby, new home, retirement, graduations... follow my line of thinking? These are all reasons for celebrations. So let's create a party atmosphere! Woohoo! lol

Fifty two weeks ago today, Fitztown Challenge Blog launched its very first challenge! So put on your party hat and fancy duds, shine up your party shoes and come celebrate with us at our CELEBRATION Blog Hop! 

I cannot believe it's only been a year! So much has happened with the blog. We, as most new blogs do, had some growing pains and we continue to learn and grow. The collections in the store have also continued to expand! We want to show you something from ALL the collections. After all, Fitztown is not all about fairies and teddy bears! Fitztown has SO MUCH MORE to offer! Each Design Team (DT) member and Guest Designer (GD) is featuring a project from different collections through out the store. Be sure to visit all of them so you won't miss out on what's available!

In the mean time, we want you to party down with us! We've got some special prizes to make this a fun celebration! Keep reading! We've got our usual challenge mumbo jumbo about the challenge rules and such we need to get out of the way but all you need to know about how to win a prize for the blog hop is below!
