About Me

I started scrapping in 1998 and then it was strictly heritage. I have expanded my horizons and scrapping styles since then. I am more fond of darker or subdued colors. I'm not fond of pastels or glaring colors but since becoming a grandma, I have been know to use them occasionally. I like to travel, knit, crochet, cook, and eat as well as SB. I'm retired and love it, except for the being old part. Been married 51 years and spend lots of time with DH. I love John Deere tractors/stuff. I collect it. I like cats and cat stuff. I have two cats I got from a rescue group about 5 years ago, Wiley Coyote and Sweet Gypsy Rose. I never, ever allow my friends to lose touch with me. Still have friends that I've known for 60 years or more. I don't like the cartoony stickers/stuff. I'm more into kind of realistic. Just about anything old fashioned, subdued, or heritage.
Also into farm and tractor stuff.
