I am a researcher for a non-fiction author & proud Auntie to three, two 10yo twin nephews & a 8yo niece, who live right around the corner from us in a tiny town in the hills of western Massachusetts. I’ve been married to Rick for 22 years & have known him for 37 years (we met my second week of college). I love gardening - veggies, herbs, & masses of perennials; sewing - clothes from vintage patterns for me, doll clothes for my vintage fashion dolls for my niece to play with; reading - especially science fiction, science fiction romance, romance, & all kinds of history, especially history of science; & working out when my bad knee lets me.
I’m a hybrid-but-mostly-paper scrapper. I work so much on the computer that I need to get away from it & work with my hands. I do all my journaling & captions on the computer (then printing them for my scrapbooks) but all my layouts on paper for 12x12 albums. I finally got a color printer again so I am thoroughly enjoying using all the lovely digi bits, especially brushes & png illustrations, to create stickers, spot art, & filler cards for my scrapbooks. Hybrid really is the best of both worlds! =D
