Too many scraps....paper scraps that is....lol


I found that my paper scraps were piling up, and, in boxes where I could not see them....so, I'd grab a full sheet to just cut off a little for a sentiment......I decided to do something about it, to help me use up those many hidden scraps......smile

Signing my Vintage Card today!


Thank you for taking the time to view my video....I have been signing for 30 years, and when I read on Stamp Connection, that a lady that was hard of hearing, wanted Stamping Up to add CAPTIONING to the video's...I wanted to do what I could to help for now...smiles...it may not be CAPTIONING YET, but, it could be CAROLLING until that happens....smiles

This will get perfected in time, but, I have to start somewhere, right?....jump right in and help where possible...this way, everyone joins in the video card making fun.....yay....let me know what you think I could improve on, to make it a great Signing Experience for our Deaf Community STAMPER'S...and the Hard of Hearing....I'm willing to try....thank you...and be gentle with the comments...lol...smiling gently....haha....

Olivia and Nana worked on this card Friday....you did a great job Olivia....


All I did was put this together ....really...Olivia came over to spend the night with her brother Owen, on Friday....we called it " Olivia's Craft and laughing Session with Nan "....haha...my grandson Owen watched the Hockey game with Papa, while Olivia and myself, laughed, and had fun making this Flower Card we saw on SC......she picked it out to make, but, time got away, and the lighting was not good for filming....AND, it was bedtime....Olivia would have stayed up half the night, but, the old Nan stepped in to explain...early to bed, early to rise theory with her,......lol....lol...I told her, that if she got it all cut out, and coloured, and blinged...I would make sure it was placed on my blog today....YAY, the Nan remembered....please enjoy Olivia's rendition of....Mrslincolnsinkin video....thank you Sarah......for the inspiration!
