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.

Steven's quilt is all bordered, layered and ready to pin baste--FINALLY ;l-));
hoping to begin tomorrow after a back rest period this afternoon....

A page from my "Haiku" Art Journal---using my Gel pens,  stamps, colored pencils, inks, washi tapes and Project Life cards and stickers....I have set up each page with the circular date stamp and the header--at least for January--I may go a bit more free-form in the next few months......

And here is today's page, completed except for the temp at sunset... I seem to be concentrated on
weather each day for some reason.....

                         {that's me a little off-kilter up there--as i am feeling today}

You can see the Haiku quote by --RYOKAN-- on the left of the stamped and inked flower....
that little stick girl (on the lower right) is me having walked on the treadmill!!

I am having such fun working with all my paper STUFF! again....

Hugs to you all,
Julierose, La Blageuse (craft-euse)
