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!

Some of the products I used for my fishing village are acrylic paints, heavy gel medium , findings, driftwood, fabric, spools, cord etc.  I found the the wharf material in my husband's shop along with the nails. The houses were candles I found at a thrift shop  that I decorated and mended with paper clay after I manage to break them will I was working on them.
