About Me

I am first a Christian and next, I'm married to my best friend. We have 3 sons, all married, 7 grands (2 married), and 1 great grand.

I enjoy anything to do with papercrafting...stamping, making greeting cards, making and swapping ATCs. I've had to downsize a lot after three moves in recent years, but I still have more supplies than I need! Years ago, I taught some stamping classes when I lived in Michigan and then in Texas. Now, I do lots of learning by watching YouTube.

Thrift stores are my favorite places to shop. We have a new store in town that's fun, too. It's called Bargain Hunt.

I really enjoy most woodland animals. I also love giraffes, zebras and birds. I love dogs and cats but we don't have any right now. In the past we've had all sizes of poodles and a Cairn terrier. We've never had a cat because hubby is very allergic to them.

I love all colors, but I cannot handle neon colors as they trigger my migraines. I like to do collages and masterboards. Ephemera is much appreciated. I love die cuts also. I don't really care to receive postcards as I don't collect them.

I drink tea, but not real often. I have quite a collection of it right now. I don't drink coffee or hot chocolate. I know I'm weird, but I don't much care for chocolate any more, and I do like black licorice. I also still like peppermints, and peanut butter fudge! The fudge is only a Christmas Eve treat though.

Favorite Music

Old hymns, acapella

Favorite Movies

Hallmark's. I don't go to the movies and only once in awhile do I watch one on TV.

Favorite Television

Dateline, 48 Hours, The Voice, The Raccoon Whisperer on YouTube.

Favorite Crafts

Rubberstamping and ATCs. I like "tasteful" ATCs - none with even partial nudity or very weird and nothing from the dark side, no Halloween and no skulls. Please, nothing with snakes or spiders on. I'm very afraid of both. Also, I'd prefer not to receive any religious items.

Favorite Books

The Bible, Christian novels, Amish romance, anything about papercrafting. Also, I love to read cookbooks. I like Daphne's Diary but don't get any magazines now.

About Me

If you ever receive something from me with Postage Due, please let me know. I will be happy to reimburse you.

One more thing...just to let you know I have asthma and can't handle smoke odor. Also, I'm allergic to chemicals used in fragrances.

Comment: Thanks!!! So fun to receive your card and library pocket filled with goodies. You have such beautiful handwriting! I was born near Holland (Benton Harbor) and grew up in Berrien Springs until I was 9, then we moved to Ludington. I still have family in those places. :)
Response: I know several people in Ludington and others who grew up there.

Comment: Wow! I really really like this stackable pocket that you made for me. The paper it's made of is absolutely beautiful! All the extras that are tucked into the pockets are great too. I will put them to good use. The style is right up my alley. The playing cards are really cute, I like unusual ones like these. And thanks for the postcard too, it's a keeper!

Comment: Hi Marsha! What a delightful card! And, no, I definitely DO NOT think you should stop paper crafting and swapping. This card is gorgeous. If you ever EVER want to do private swaps, let's do it! I love how you accented the pattern on the paper with those tiny, amber gems. And the squirrel is definitely enjoying his meal! Wonderful to be partnered again, my friend.

I cannot thank you enough for your heartfelt note. Your words were such a comfort to me. I can most certainly use the lovely journal, and I thank you so much for your photo of Jodie, especially since it obviously your copy. From the bottom of my heart, thank you <3
