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. I was married 52 years and spent lots of time with DH. I love John Deere tractors/stuff. I collect it. I like cats and cat stuff. I have one cats I got from a rescue group about 7 years ago, 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. And nowadays mostly make cards when crafting.
