About Me

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.

2 flags in one

I'm a little late posting this but it will work in any season.

Well it was time to change my flag in Dec.  I opened up my box labeled Flags and started pulling out Winter flags.  Of course I was crazy enough to buy 2 of those flags with writing that you can only read from one side.  DUH, who gets to read it, which side to hang which way.

 Well I got the bright idea (because I was on a roll in Dec.) to sew them together and make one.  Viola.... it worked.  You can't read one thru the other and now they both are hanging outside and will carry me thru Jan I think.    Here's what I did.    First I stitched them together at the top and then had to go down about 2 inches and stitch across again to make the new pocket for the rod.  Then I just stitch around the sides and bottom to form one flat.  This is what they looked like before I put them together.    They now hang as one flat.   I'm pleased with it and for me, Happy Holidays can also mean, winter and snow so I think it will hang thru Jan 2014.     Now where is the snow.  I want a little.

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.
