Welcome to my World

Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other other craft projects. I am also going to share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

What a Retreat


I do not think I have laughed so hard in my life. I know I almost wet my pants about a dozen times to say the least. My cheeks hurt so bad when I went to bed after the first night. We had a gal from Bethel AK that used to work in our school district, a gal from CA, one from OR, a couple from ID, about 5 from MT and the rest from WA which include the husband of our organizer. He did the hard work - ha.ha. Miss Bethel was just hilarious telling about the stories out in the bush where she now lives and work with about 48 tribes through a hospital. I sure do miss her at our monthly crops she also attended. Then a gal I have not had a chance to scrap with from right here in Spokane was able to attend and she is such a hoot and we laugh so hard and loud that four of us at the retreat got kicked out of a CM consultants home about 5 years ago because we were too loud for her other customers. Sorry to say she was out of business about a year after that. Sleep, about 9 hours in 2 night, late night and early mornings. Accomplished, yes I actually did do some of this. I made 4 sets of the One Sheet Wonder cards and sold 2 sets while there and have orders for two sets after just talking to a compadre at work today. I will post a sample of each into a spot in the next few days. I am in the yellow floral shirt near the center of the picture. Oh yes, Bernard, the monkey, also goes to everything and everywhere with the 4 rebels, and the owner whose head he is sitting upon.
