About Me

My photo
Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in Oct 1976. I love meeting new people so hope 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 Feb 2001. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I am out of Stamping Up since Spring 2017 but still have lots of supplies!!!! These days I'm back to quilting and having a great time.

April 2010 stamp class using Awash with Flowers

We're using "Awash with Flowers" and here are 3 versions of the same card. They were cased and tweaked to what I had on hand. Not sure you can tell the difference but the designer paper is Old Olive. The card is A.Artichoke with W.White. The top card and one on the left are using Rich Razzleberry. The lower right is using Cherry Cobbler. We're making the lower right card but you'll have the option to change it up. I'll post one of the other projects in the am.

Wondering if you are the same Joan Lowder whose name I saw on a cute little wooden row of houses at Lake Lanier Islands Resort today. It is about six inches long and about an inch or saw tall. Really cute and colorfully painted. Thanks. June Anderson www.junebanderson.com Please email me at my web address. Thanks.

June, thanks for the note. Could be me. Got a picture. We used to make row houses, about 5-6 to a row, about 6" long. Might would have been stamped with Happiness House or Joan Lowder Originals. Feel free to contact me directly. jlowder1@bellsouth.net We used to even make trees to go with the houses. Think I still have some.

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.
