A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff.

Here is my workdesk for this Wednesday for all you peepers coming to visit from the Stamping Ground What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Below that is a pretty (I think) card I made using my Cuttlebug and my Scalloped Circle and Circle dies and my A, B, and now-famous C plate!  I think I'm really going to like this whole new dimension to my crafting.  I also have two "posed" items on display for your viewing enjoyment today.  One is my poor eyeglasses you heard about, all split in half.  Sigh.  The second, and the most important, is that impish woman peeking in my playhouse window.  That's my big sister, Diana, who came down from Portland for a visit.  Doesn't she have the best smile? 

Here is a close-up of my card which I made yesterday because I knew I wouldn't have time today:

Have fun hopping on to the next desk at WOYWW!  As always, thanks to Julia!  And thank you for stopping and leaving a comment.  I really appreciate it!
