I’m pretty simple. Love the quiet life. Doing my best, to do my best, for God and family. I live in a small farming town in Eastern Oregon since 2013. Previously I had spent 46 years in Alaska and upon retirement, moved to my new forever home. We have a small place of six acres, a few fruit trees, a few farm animals, and a few dreams. We love it here and do our best to be an asset to our small community. We have a lazy and fat yellow lab named Murphy, a crazy Himalayan cat named Oscar (the Grouch), and a blind cat name “cat-cat” who is more than 18 years old. Our horses, Sunflower and Lacy, are a joy to watch as they prance about their field, golden manes flying, graceful feet dancing to their own music. We will be adding chickens to the mix this spring.
The wildlife in the area have adopted us. We have over 100 quail at our bird feeders several times a day, and a few pheasants nesting in the barn. Four at last count. We also have a deer that has taken to eating along with the horses and sleeps in the barn. He has a damaged leg, so we are thinking that he is no longer able to keep up with his herd. We named him “Big Bird” the first time we saw him because he was eating from our bird feeders, but now that he is a resident, he deserves a more respectful name. I haven’t selected one yet.
Why I am “here” at this blog, is to share. I have loved computer graphics for many years as a hobby starting with Corel Draw, and finally advancing into the early versions of Photoshop. In 2010 my best friend invited me to start paper scrapping with her group. That lasted for one whole, tedious day. All that paper storage and setup/cleanup! A year later I found some people doing online digital scrapping, and I was hooked. I wanted to learn everything there was about designing scrapping kits. Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I need to learn more. Always learning more. I am currently working with Photoshop CS6, and although I have Adobe Illustrator loaded on my computer, I have yet to acquire the courage to open it up and create.
The purpose of this site is to share with you my humble designs, for free. For any use you desire, including commercial use. My only wish is that you pass along this humble kindness to others. Be the change. Be the grace and mercy the world so desperately needs.
