About Me

I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

Took out my Travel Journal that I made in Mary Ann Moss' online class a few years ago.

For our birthdays DH and I will be taking a week trip--could it be that all this SNOW and ICE has prompted us to "get outta town"....???

Here are some shots of the inner pages made from papers and fabric:

this was page one of our Caribbean Cruise......what a dream vacation that was...our mantra was:
"The boat, the boat, the boat"--with my anti-sea sickness patch I fared well even tho' the trip was a little rough seawise....

blank pages waiting to be filled....

I used magazine papers and old music prints, too.............

and here is the last page with a handprint of my darling Fiona.....
the button is one of my Grand'mere's and the lace (you can just see it along the flap) is a piece of crochet she did....

We are so READY for a May getaway.....more on that later.

I'll end with my latest page of our dear friends and their baby doggies....(oh, and on the left my daughter --in blue--and her friend on a "girls' night out!)...

Huggies to you all, still scrappin'
