Honest Scrap



Heidi gave me an award! Thanks!

Okay, so with this award I need to list 10 pieces of honest "Scrap" about myself.

(1) I drive a hybrid car (Honda Accord Hybrid), but secretly desire to be behind the wheel of a screaming, gas guzzling, Z6 Corvette.

(2) I am vain beyond reason. While I don't wear makeup (and I don't think I ever will again), I have (in the mid-90's) investigated the cost of liposuction. Sometimes I look at my face and all my lines and wonder what laser wrinkle removal would cost. Isn't that terrible?

(3) I have way too much arts and crafts materials. Especially paper and rubber stamps. But I continue to buy more! One time when I was thinking about how much trouble is was going to be for people after I died (to get rid of all my crap), my daughter said, "It won't be that difficult to get rid of your stamps. We'll just glue them together and bury you in them."

(4) I have never owned a weight scale. I think they are evil. I know this is in conflict with item (2).

(5) I am one of the loudest people in my office. I attribute it to having a very good diaphragm from the 6 years I taught aerobics in an "echoy" gym.

(6) I used to be organized. That was before.

(7) I graduated with high honors with a degree in electrical engineering and I have never worked as an electrical engineer. I found it easy. I seriously doubt I can now do some of the complex math equations I used to do for fun. And...I only rarely miss it.

(8) I am a feminist and probably got a good bit of that part of my personality from my mother. And I knew by watching my daughter that I passed it on.

(9) I enjoy staying up late and waking up late, but I live in a working world that likes it early. Also, I find city night lights exciting. I love watching night activity and I've been known to wake up in the middle of the night and go outside to sit on my porch to watch and listen. I live on a quiet street, but there have been, on occasion, some really interesting animals out from time to time. The most interesting was a young, very large crane that must have lost his mother, because he was making the most awful racket I ever heard. That night, most of the neighborhood was awake. :)

(10) I secretly wish to have a large cat - seriously large - cat someday. In fact, that is probably one long time fantasy that I have had since watching the Wild Kingdom as a child. I fulfilled part of that dream when I volunteered in South Africa at the Lion Park.

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts.

Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend.

I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above!




Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads.

Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging?



You can find the tutorial for the bag Here.
Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month.

People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. It's …

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures!

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover.

Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun!


The journal block comes from their September Kit.

Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity



The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower. It's big and has many uses!
