About Me

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.

Porching sitting has arrived

Today was spent cleaning off the back porch so sure hope all the pollen is gone. Cleaned once but this was the major cleaning, hosing it down. Don due for knee replacement later this month so he plans to spend his time on the porch.

I have a pillow pattern I want to make about porch sitting and what a nice place to chill out and daydream.  Will post when I get it made.   The rug I think is made from recycled plastic bottles or something, from Lowe's Home Improvement.  Wow it's been great.  Just hose it off as well.   Can't say the same for the cushions.  Haven't held up as well.  Replace the seat cushions with new foam in '10 and mildew on some spots on fabric as well as some pieces fading a bit and it's Sunbrella. 
Deck became a screened porch.  Good investment.  All built by one guy, Danny Nifong, Lex., NC.  I'd recommend him to anyone.   He's a gem.   He only needed help up on the roof.  Entire porch is covered in vinyl.  Furniture is vinyl wicker so we just hose it all down. 
The shelf has changed a bit but just couldn't bare the big empty space.

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.
