- I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

This is a card that I made for my "upline" Angie....she has always been very helpful when ever I have a question.
Ok, now I'm sitting here at my desk wearing a t-shirt and the doors are open and its a balmy 66 degrees and muggy.... I thought spring/summer wasn't to get here for a few more months. I can't believe that its this """HOT""" and """MUGGY""" don't get me wrong I can do warm weather much better than I can do cold, but muggy???? And don't get me started on the "flashes"...you know which ones I'm talking about. LOL
Well, enough dissing the weather....I should just be glad and move on....and feel 'BLESSED' as my card states....
Thanks for looking!!!

This card I made a few days ago....
I've already given you a clue.... yep its supposed to be my take on 8 maids a milkin'.
But I think my maids got their brothers to do their chores for them, 'cause now they are just skipping along enjoying themselves.
Hope you enjoy the card.... I know I have missed quite a few of the 12 Days of Christmas, but what would I do with 12 drummers and leaping lords....OH MY!!!
Hope everyone has a great holiday and enjoy the moment!!!!

front porch...hubby was always
looking for a place to put his
drink while sitting on the swing.
This is a coat rack that I
made using the actual door
knobs from a door we had
These are some signs/
decor I made using old scraps
This is a candy dish I made for
(hence the school mascot).
And the girlie decor are bits
and pieces that I picked up
from everywhere and
painted to match.
This is a first for me so bear with me while I learn how to do this.
First, a little about me, I have loved arts and crafts as long as I can remember. I remember watching my maternal grandmother glueing elbow macaroni to high heel shoes and then spray painting them gold and she also glued sweet gum balls onto styrofoam cones and sprayed them gold to look like christmas trees. And she made this kitchy container, she used a metal coffee can and then she would roll up paper from old magazines (the colorful ads actually) and then she would glue the paper tubes vertically onto the can, then she would take wire and cut it into short lenghts to insert into the top of the tubes for a scalloped effect. She was always doing something like that, and I loved to watch her do it, and the occasional rolling of paper she allowed me to do.
So you see, I love any type of arts and crafts, myself....I paint with acrylics on anything that doesn't move, I crochet, knit, sew, scrapbook, make cards, woodworking, anything and just about everything. I eat, sleep and breathe it. So, sit back and enjoy what I enjoy!!!!
