Tell Us A Story.....
I am a retired 59 year old that came into the digi-scrap world totally on a dare. I am so glad that I took up the challenge, I love it.
I have been selling my kits for 8 months but creating them for over a year. Blog trains gave me my start and a lot of inspiration. I am so happy that MyMemories Forum will now have one.
Tradition plays a big part in my family, so that is reflected in most of my work, I love vintage colors and items with a bit of bling. Bears play a huge part in my work, I have to have at least one bear in each of my kits, kind of my signature element.
When I am not scrapping, I tole paint, my first love. As long as I can remember I have been painting one thing or another. There is just something about putting a brush to canvas, wood or a wall. I got into creating huge murals, time consuming but I love the results. Our bedroom looks like a Greek island with stone walls, ancient ruins, urns full of grape vines and other greenery. The clouds and water give such a peaceful feel to the room. Very restful.
My favorite memory is kind of strange. It was the first time I walked into my grandfather's old tractor shed. There were so many things to investigate and the smell was interesting. To this day when I smell old gas and oil it reminds me of my grandfather and his shed.
As for my greatest achievement, that was when I said 'I do' 33 years ago. I have the most loving and caring man in the world. He always puts me first, so rare in this day and age. Not saying that our married life has been perfect, but very close to it. I am content.
