About Me

(Updated Oct 2023)
Stamping, hiking, gardening and trailer camping are a few of my favorite activities.  My husband Denny and I also do yoga, Denny runs and I brisk walk at home.   I have been retired since 2005, which gives me much more time to play!

Denny and I celebrated our 58th Anniversary in October 2023 :-)  We were both born and raised on the beautiful Southern Oregon Coast.  We raised our 2 daughters and son on 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 9 great grands.  

Nature has been a constant inspiration during my 25+ years of stamping.  I retired in 2015 after 10 years from being a Stampin' Up Demo and created my scandinancycreates Blog in 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, Lolly:-)

I have been on several design teams since beginning my blog,  but as we know...design teams come and go for many reasons,  but are always fun and a great way to make new friends and learn new techniques,  etc.

Currently I am on Loll's Group of Seven Cardmakers Blog as an Honorary Member.  It is a fabulous group of very talented paper crafting friends who have monthly get togethers via the Internet and Zoom Calls.  We do have a Linky so our friends can play along too:-)

Now it is a busy time for all our crafting friends to create beautiful Holiday cards to share with our families and friends.  Wishing you all a wonderful,  healthy and creative time...

Love and Hugs,
