About Me

Stamping, hiking, backpacking, and gardening are a few of my favorite activities.  My husband Denny and I also do daily yoga at home, fitness classes and swing dancing.  I have been retired since 2005, which gives me much more time to play!

Denny and I celebrated our 50th Anniversary in October 2015 :-)  We were both born and raised on the beautiful Southern Oregon Coast.  We raised our 2 daughters and son and 35 acres of forested land up Coos River, where we still garden and hike.  Our family has grown with the addition of our s0n-in-law, daughter-in-law, 8 grandchildren, and 4 great grandsons.  They are all scattered so it is real special when we get together.

Nature has been a constant inspiration during my 20+ years of stamping.  I have now retired after 10 years from being a Stampin' Up Demo and now have more time for my newest stamping adventure...My own Blog...scandinancy creates ,  since March 2016 thanks to my dear friend, Loll (Stamping with Loll)!

Loll helped me design my blog and walked me through all the many steps of creating a blog!  I could not have accomplished this process without you my sweet and very patient friend! I thank you everyday:-)

Having a blog has opened up the door for more stamping adventures.  I have been on Loll and Bonnie's CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercolour Challenges the last 1+ years and have enjoyed and learned so much using my favorite CAS style and Mixed Media Techniques besides making many new Blog friends!

I am looking forward to more creative adventures...including our 2nd Stamping Retreat in beautiful Vancouver BC, Canada in May, 2018.  We stampers do have Fun!  Hugs!

P.S. Photo taken by Denny on our October, 2017 backpack trip.  Luckily it was our 1st day out, so I was still relatively clean!
