About Me

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.

The Time Was Productive, Depite My Lack of Tools.

As I had mentioned last Thursday, I was going to go to a cabin in the mountains with some friends to do some catch-up scrap booking and card making.  I spent all Thursday afternoon and evening getting my paraphernalia into the car, and was so proud of myself, because I was so sure that I had thought of everything.  However, my friend, Jane, was going to drive us up to the cabin, so I had to go to her house early in the morning and transfer all of my carefully selected stuff over to her car - no problem, or so I thought.  We got up to the cabin, I unloaded my stuff, sat down with my Cricut ready to start creating, and I couldn't find my little plastic cube of drawers that all my necessities ( such as scissors, adhesives, dimensionals, glue sticks, gel pens, etc.) are stored in.  It was not there!!  I had left it in the trunk of my car, behind a paper bag, back in town!!  So there I was, all dressed up with no glue or scissors.  I rummaged around muttering not-too-silent curses, and did manage to find 1/3 full glue runner, my ribbon, and my Friskars cutter.  So I did get one card done (pictured below).  It isn't one of my best, but I'll use it one way or the other.  Then I spent the rest of the time cutting my mats for the cards and organizing my scrap paper between prints and solids.  The container had become a mess because I had rummage through it so many times looking for paper I wanted to use.  On the whole, it was a peaceful, beautiful time with good wine, good food, and good friends, and some time for organization, rather than production.  I'll get more done now that I'm home, and I'll post more pictures soon.  It's good to be home - my roommate snored!
