About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

  1. Super cute image. Love it!! Thanks for joining our Happy Fall Ya'll Challenge at Delightful Challenges.


  2. Your card put a smile on my face. Halloween cards are so much fun. Wonderful coloring. Want to tell you Georgianna received your card and I told her you forgot to sign it and it put a smile on her face. Once she is out of the hospital I will share it with her again. At this time she does not remember to much. It has been a hard road so far and a long way to go.
    Thank you so much
    Hugs, Pat
