About Me

Come and Share Some Scraps and Tea,    All Are Welcome.......
Friendships Free

I am from peanut butter and jelly
From Kellogs, Wonderbread and vanilla ice cream
I'm from John Street in Seaford
I grew up in child's wonderland of friends, 
chalked hopscotched streets,
dolls, baseball diamonds 
and the duck pond

I am from orchid corsages and white gloves at Easter
Hand squeezed grape jelly and deep fried sugar donuts
I am from pink lilacs
that line the path to my Grandmothers house.
I was raised Irish
I'm from lovingly hand sewn dresses, tea parties
dress hats and patent leather shoes

I am from that old box of photos stored in the loving home I grew up in
I am from the stories, faces and events in this box
It holds photo history of my family and those who made an imprint on
Who I am
In this treasured box of faces and memories
is the answer to Who I am....
Therefore, I Scrap!


I am married for 40 years. We have 3 wonderful adult children or 5 if you count their spouses and 4 of the most wonderfully delicious grandbabies. I have 4 dogs that keep me very busy and bring me so much joy. I bred Bichon Frise puppies for 20 years. I have since discovered the wonderful world of crafting. I love paper crafting, scrapbooking, copics, my cricuts, my Close To My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I love sharing ideas with friends and trying new things that is why I chose to be a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant. I am excited to share their wonderful products and the projects I am making with them. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you will take a look around and visit often.
