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!

I had fun making my altered box.  I love using old wooden canasters for my canvas. They are very reasonable to purchase at a thrift stores (most the time cheaper than a canvas).  The insides usually has a removable plastic liner, which allows you to use your decorated box for many uses.  This box will be used house a birthday gift for a dear friend. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.
