About Me

My Photo
Judy G.
I was raised in South Florida back in the years when it was a peaceful and wonderfully safe place to live. We lived a mile from the beach and could ride our bikes over the intercoastal bridge right to the best beach around. All my years of growing up I was a competitive swimmer and belonged to AAU. I granduated from Florida State University with a BS degree in nursing. I am recently retired but I'm thinking of going back to work to support my hobbies.

Halloween Pop-Up Flip Card Tutorial

Monday, September 19, 2016


Here's the really nice 6 x 6 Halloween mini-album I made. It's going up for sale on eBay soon, but I wanted you all to see it before it does. I just love the way it turned out!

I must offer you all my sincere apologies for being absent for the last few months, but it looks like my ankle has recovered well, and I'm able to get back into my craft room again.  I've worked on a number of mini albums, using new techniques and so forth, and they will be going up for sale on eBay soon.  Also, I am doing well as a Close To My Heart consultant, and I hope to start having some  on-line card classes on a limited basis at first, because I don't know how many people will be interested.  My first class will be limited to 15 people, and in each kit there will be the supplies needed to make 6 cards (2 each of three different styles).  Each participant will have to pay for their supplies - ink and stamp sets along with postage, but extra embellishments and do dads will be provided.  All the card stock will already be cut to size and there will also be envelopes.  Occasionally, if things go well, additional free stuff will be provided or kits will be discounted.  Please let me know if you think this is something you might be interested in.  Sign up is for one class at a time, so there are no continuing obligations.  All of our new catalogs are out now, so please check  out the new products:

Please send me your opinions.

The week-end passed quickly, with a lot of mess and commotion in our house - 3 of our 4 grandchildren, a daughter and her spouse, and the arrival from Florida of my brother and sister.  My sister does own her own place up here, though, so they were just at our house for mealtimes.  First of all, we had to pick up our two campers on Friday afternoon.  They came home tan, tired, and with a plastic bag full of dirty, damp clothes.  According to them, the food at camp was good, and they had a ball, but they hated the one night they had to spend the night camped out in the woods.  It rained, and their sleeping bags got wet, even though they had tarps over the raised wooden platform.  Also, supper had to be cooked on the fire, and the counselor had forgotten the aluminum foil (which he had to go back and get), making supper very late.  To top it off, the bugs ate them up!  Other than that one night, though, they had a ball.  This week-end I spent the whole time cooking, shopping, cleaning up after everyone, and doing LOTS of laundry!  Only one boy had to sleep on an inflatable at night, because Benjamin, our 17 year old grandson, opted out of coming this week-end.  Spending three days with all of us just isn't his thing anymore.  How soon they forget the good old times with Grammy and Papaw!  He was our one and only grandson for 6 years, and we totally doted on him.

Our two youngest grandsons, age 11 each, both went to the Methodist Church Camp, located in the foothills of the Great Smokey mountains, about 20 miles from where we lived.  This was the first time camping experience or both city boys, and I'm sure they were both nervous about spending 5 days away from their families with a bunch of kids they didn't know.  But they were brave about it.  One child just took his sleeping bag and one suitcase with a clean pair of clothes for each day, extra shoes, 2 sets of sleepwear one washcloth and one towel.  The other boy took 5 large ziplock bags with 2 sets of clothes for each day (wise mom) 2 pairs of sneakers and 2 pairs of water shoes 2 wash clothes and 2 large bath towels and one large pool towel - PLUS his "Bear" that he sleeps with.  Now this kid was prepared!  Unfortunately, the first boy ran out of dry clothes and had to wear his jacket for a shirt one day and just about roasted in it!  It's really been hot here, in the 90's all week long.  Apparently they had a really good time, except for the night that they hiked up into the woods, carrying their sleeping bags and supplies and cooked supper over the fire and then slept in the woods all night.  They got very little sleep because of the bugs, the rain, and the heat.  But they lived through it, and are tougher for it.  Sleep-away camp is a great experience for any kid, I think.  It lets him or her know that they can have a good time despite no TV, iPhones or Game Boys.  You can actually have a good time outdoors hiking, swimming, canoeing, and getting to know people different than you.  I went to camp, my sister went to camp, both of our daughters went to camp, and now three of our grandchildren have been to camp.  So far, our one grandsughter has been the hold-out.  Maybe she'll decide to go next year.

I'm out of my walking boot now and have returned to my normal activities.  This broken ankle has been a rough experience because of the prolonged inability to be on my feet.  I've learned a lot, and I will never described this injury as "just a broken ankle".  The recovery is long and painful, and I still walk with a limp, which I hate!  But I have been able to continue crafting!

I made this mini-album for a lovely lady who has been taking care of me ever since I broke my ankle in February. She has become a good friend, and I wanted something for her to remember me by. The paper is so cute, and the album was loads of fun to make.

I know this looks like something from Transformers, but at least I can walk with it on.  It's pretty heavy, but it's an air cast so I can pump it up to make it quite supportive while I walk.  I can also take it off at night while I'm in bed.  I'll tell you, this is a much slower recovery than my knee surgery.  I think within the next week I'll be able to venture into my craft room, which I haven't been into in almost 2 months.  Maybe then I can go to work on an album I've been planning to make.

Also, thanks to Internet sales on my Close To My Heart website, I have been able to make my quarterly minimums with no problem.  And in the month of April, new consultants can join for only $75.  Now that is a real deal!  In May the new Summer Expressions catalog comes out with all new summertime stamps.  If you're a stamper or a scrap booker, don't miss out on all these great products.

Love to all,  Judy

Aha!  I have figured out what the problems with my photos have been.  I didn't have Picasa enabled to have access to my photos.  Now I can post the pictures of my new album I just made.  I went crazy and added some of the pages twice.  Actually,  the book ends with Happilyn Ever After.  Enjoy!


The time has passed slowly, but I have managed to get some creativity going in order to finish one of my mini- albums that was commissioned for a little baby boy named Benjamin Joseph.  It turned out pretty good, and the parents loved it, so I'm happy with that.  I also managed to get 5 Easter cards done to send off to my brother in Florida and our 4 grandchildren.  I haven't been able to get my wheelchair into my craft room ( for reasons all crafters know.  LOL!), so I have my basic supplies stacked up right beside my recliner.  You ought to see my husband trying to find my craft items for me in my craft room!  He's like a bull in a China shop.  I'm having trouble posting pictures on my blog from my iPad Air.  I don't know if that's a common problem with other Air users, but it sure is frustrating to me!
