About Me

My photo
Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in '76. I love meeting new people so hope you to hear from you. Drop me a line. I've been doing crafts of all kinds since I was a kid. I loved making things and especially things that are recycled. I had never stamped until 2001 when I went to a stamp class while on vacation. We went to a local store to buy the stamps we had used. OUCH. When we got home I saw a Stampin Up catalog and realized how much money I could save with their stamps and best part as they are sets that go together which makes for easy card making. After doing some thinking I decided I should sign up as a demo and see what happens. I didn't know the first thing about stamping and still learning. Retired from Sara Lee Intimates in '01. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I teach Stamp Classes in my stamp room and would love to meet you.

Time with friends

Hi all. Spent the day with old friends yesterday for the annual pool party and of course 5 hours in the pool with no sunscreen not a good idea and needless to say I look like a lobster with raccoon eyes as I had to put the sunglasses on. Yep, not a pretty site.

This am I met up with another friend, Lea Kimmel, one of my stampers and we headed off for a mini fun day. We spent the day at Barnes and Nobles looking at stamping magazines and just chilling out. I had 2 coupons to get to free iced coffee at Sheetz, so that, good company, and neat magazines, it was a great FREE day. My little notebook is filled with inspiration.

So next time you are bored, grab a friend and head off to Barnes & Nobles for some chill out time.

Hi, Joan. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Be glad to help with blog aids. Have you gone to "cutest blog on the block" website? It is easy to put up backgrounds with their offerings (free downloads). Ciao! Nancy

Nancy, you are a doll. I thought surely with some looking around I'd get a lead to doing things better. Thanks for stopping by

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog and it's still a learning experience even in 2017.

If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month once I get back on schedule.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
