In my mind, Halloween is notably the greatest holiday for children as you collect your stash that lasts until spring!

What fun it is to use the Stampin’ Up Witch’s Brew Designer Paper #132185 to create this cute shadow box vignette. Of course, having a witch that tells you to behave or she will call out her monkeys,  keeps all in good stead!


Can’t Get Enough: Have you ever been addicted to anything, or worried that you were? Have you ever spent too much time and effort on something that was a distraction from your real goals?

I am not worried about a thing! I was dropped as a baby into a pool of awesomeness and glitter. Having the opportunity to be an Independant Demonstrator for Stampin’ Up’ has opened up a world to me that I would like to share. After all, don’t we all like just a little glitter in our lives?

I have found my passion in paper,punches,stamps and ink. Being a retired educator, I now have the time to create and share ideas with those of you who love to craft like me. Welcome on your journey and I will be right there with you!

You can come to my workshops monthly or just ask me, “How did I do that?”
