ATC's from older book marks

I took some older and tassell less book marks that looked like this

    Rather than throwing them out or losing them in a drawer and forgotten about. By doing this you can see them pretty again!
Part of the credit for these cards should go to Sticker Lady who provided the inspiration and the means.

JennieGee Creations For Sale

Here are a sampling of some of the items I have available for sale. JennieGee Creations are available again this year at the Art Gallery during their Christmas display; however, you can arrange a private viewing for you and your friends at my home or yours. Arrangements can be made by email or by contacting me at 250-271-5614. If the colours your are looking for aren’t available it is often possible to arrange a custom order.

More to come.......they look 100 times better in person too!

Twilight Set and all the Rest of Life

It may stun a few of you rigid but the Twilight Ring is more or less ready to be mailed as soon as my husband gets paid on the 15th. I had the money set aside in what we call my swapping account and normally my husband never touches it though it is technically joint. He was in dire need of some tool he broke at work (mechanics have to provide their own their own tools that they bring along with them to any new job) anyway it was something important that he needs all the time  (he told me what it was but with tools it's in one ear and out the other,lol) we are really broke at the moment as I need expensive dental work that requires a number of stages and has to be done in a different city, so all our cash has been going to that) So he in his wisdom borrowed my trading money not realizing  that the cash in the account was almost entirely the money sent to me from others for their trades. He had planned to replace it on his 15th of the month cheque anyway, but when he told me what he had done I freaked out at him and explained how and why that money didn't actually belong to me, he wants me to apologize to all of you, he is horrified as he would never spend money that wasn't ours under any circumstances, and has already given me a post dated cheque for the 16th so that we can be certain his pay has gone in. For some reason the Direct Deposit sometimes (most) puts it in at midnight of the 14th but every so often he doesn't get it until midnight on the 15th so the cheque is written for the 16th, then we are safe.We have also made a new family rule that nothing comes out of that account without checking with me first.  Hope to get a couple of the smaller ones out as well until I get my tiny disability pension on the 25th. I want to continue to keep sending them. This will feel like I have a huge weight off of me if I could get all of them as well as the prizes from the contest (the grand prize has been attached to my bulletin board since before the contest was even over).
I have additional good news, my doctor is going to let me start slowly carving again as of Sept! He wanted to see if it was contributing to my chronic pain as it is the left side I have my pain on and I am left handed so he wanted me to take a YEAR off to see if it changed anything.It drove me to making ATC'S as I was addicted to making cards by that point, LOL! I will probably have to send ATC'S, many which I have already have made. I may be able to incorporate some of my old stamps in new ways too.
I am looking forward to filling the black hole and I haven't forgotten any singles here too. I am looking forward to the 16th so we can get this party started! I will never forget anyone's trade (though any individual trades may require a reminder) I maybe slow but I will never flake out on someone on purpose!
Any one who thinks I may have the wrong address because they have moved in the past year and a half should send their address to jenwin not AQ mail as my AQ mail account needs a total overhaul but I should get your info no problem at that email address. It might not hurt to send i just because and don't forget to include your trail name so I know who's info I am looking at. I may try to send multiples if you are in more than one ring to speed up arrivals home.
I am playing with a new look for the Blog

You know how desperately unhappy you are when you wish you're a suicidal person so you could take the pain away but you know how much pain it would cause everyone you love and left behind and you just can't hurt them like that, or miss seeing the little ones grow. But I really, really wish I was. But I'm not so I must endure. I promise you have nothing to worry about, but I don't want to talk about it.

A few stray cards that I haven't yet posted

Here are  some cards that I haven't yet posted here that I have made or come across will STILL trying to unpack and organize my craft room. It is amazing how fast everything becomes a jumble and never ending chronic illness is no help at all! Some are a paisley set that I made for a friend.

Come hell or high water the quilt swap will be mailing Sat., please make sure that I have your most current addresses. Also remember as the doctor has banned me from carving for a year to see if that helps my back (just a few more months to go), my cards are ATC's not LTC's. I had made LTC's for this swap originally before the ban on carving came, but the cat knocked peach juice on them and I can't find the stamp I used anywhere. Also with half my craft room still in boxes I could be looking forever so I have made ATC's and we are going to finish this baby if it kills me

Any questions, email me at

Pictures Drawn by my Mom

My Mom loves to draw and although she doesn't think she is all that great at it I have to disagree. I think she is fantastic and just love the pictures she makes. She often makes them for things like Birthday Cards and they are so pretty I often frame them.
I love this one of blackberries, I keep it where I can see it every day

This is a birthday card that I normally keep framed because it is so pretty!

These are some pears that she drew a few weeks ago, I still don't know how she does it

This daisy she drew while on vacation last week, I love that the view is from behind

Let's show her in the comments how talent she is, I can barely draw a stick figure!

Some days you just have to make SOMETHING!

It's been a depressing day of unpacking and a craft room still not sorted enough to be usable but sometimes you just have to make something even if it's only a single inchie!

Home - The Key to Happiness

This card was made by and sent to me by Betsy G as part of  the ATC Addicts Club several months ago and it seemed appropriate to Showcase her card as we unpack and try to make a home out of our new house!

Please let Betsy know that we sure understand not only how much hard work unpacking is but also all the hard work she put in this card . Let's show her in the comments section what a fantastic card this!

We are all moved, let the packages flow again!

Well we made it into our new house and I made my husband bring all my craft stuff from the garage to my new "just for crafts"! room. I have already started unpacking and hope to have a bunch of packages ready to mail either Sat. or Mon. Will keep you updated.
