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!

New Digs!

I just had to make another project with these wonderful digi's from Handmade Harbour , one of our sponsors of our challenge at Not Just Cards. This digi is called Tall Houses and can be purchased here.

My project was coloured with Copic Markers, white Gelly Roll pen and Panpastels. I also used a Tim Holtz stencil in the background for some interest. The sentiment is by WordsWorth.

Pop over to the Not  Just Cards web site to see the other projects that the design team has made to inspire you.  We have several sponsors this week so there are some great prizes for some lucky winners, alls you have to do is create your project and enter it here
