Hi, thank you for visiting my blog.

I live in Battle Creek Michigan, USA, originally from Kalamazoo

I'm an avid cat lover. Had 10 of them at one time but have only 2 now. Sammy is my special baby, he's by my side most of the time and thinks he is helping me lol. We have another cat named Miss Audrey (named after my grandma) and a creme colored 5 pound chihuahua named Gooper.

I have now taken in 2 stay cats, (June 2014).  One was pregnant and had 4 kittens.  I'll be keeping the runt, a black & white tux with a white stripe on her back so I named her Skunky Pooh.   Mama cat and Skunky Pooh will be getting spayed very soon.  The other stray, Oreo has already been fixed.

Gooper was my inspiration for designer name, I call him Applehead all the time

I started PSP'ing in 2006 because I wanted to make those pretty tags that others were making and its now my favorite hobby.

The reason I started tut writing in 2009 is because I love creating my own tags & figured I might as well write them down as I'm creating. Writing tuts has become my favorite hobby and now scrap kit making. I'm very excited about doing the kits as I've been thinking about it for well over a year. I'm so glad people are enjoying them! I love being creative. I get sick often so I'm stuck at home pretty much and this gives me something to keep my mind occupied. Hate staring at the tv all the time.

In the summer of 2011 after my mother died I started making scrapkits for something new to occupy my mind, to help get my mind off her death.  Then I became very interested in scripts after I started using them.  I knew I had to learn how to make them!  I finally got up my nerve & just started doing it.

I have 1 son born in 1977 and 4 grandkids born in 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005, 1 boy & 3 girls

I'm a Leo, born in 1958 and am now disabled. I was a stay at home mom/housewife for 18 yrs. After my divorce I started cab driving/dispatching to support myself. Was fun at the time but it's not something I would do again. I did that for 8 years then moved to South Carolina and got a job working as a bill collector, one of those people you hate LOL. I did that for a few months then came back to Kalamazoo because I missed my family and was unable to work so I applied for disability due to kidney problems.

Please program your local Animal Control # into your cell phone to report animal abuse.

Please spay/neuter your pets.  1 female cat can produce over 420,000 offspring in her life, many of them homeless, hungrey, cold & unloved and I think that is a tragedy that can easily be avoided.  Many areas have discount programs.  Call your local human society or animal control for information.
Animals are family, for life - They're Not Disposable!

Sharon, Sammy & Gooper


  1. I've loved reading all about you. I have no clue about scripts, but taught myself photoshop, even though there's always something new to learn. I love scrapbooking; I love Blog Trains, not just for the freebies but for the excitement of meeting new designers. I was born in NC but have lived in KY about 80% of my life. Thanks for your freebies.

  2. Thank you so much for you wonderful comment! NC & KY are beautiful states
