Our challenge for the next fortnight is
being hosted by our very sweet and talented

Mary Lou

Hello Dear Friends!!
I am Mary Lou and I live in beautiful NE Wisconsin and it is
cold (Brrrr) this time of year :)
I have been married to a great guy for 35 years and we have 3 grown very independent kids. The best part of life brings to us~~3 grandchildren, 2 granddogs and 2 more babies arriving this spring!! YIPPEE!!!!! Truly there is nothing greater than being a Grandparent....well maybe crafting--LOL!!!!
A little about me....I always loved to draw, color, sew, cross-stitch, macrame, and after the kiddos came, a lot of that stopped to raise them.
I do all the bookkeeping for Hubby’s Tucking Business and just retired from a 34 year Dental Assisting Career to stay home and watch the grandchildren--I LOVE IT!!!!

In 2009 my daughter introduced me to Papercrafting and blogging. I'm Hooked!!
I absolutely Love coloring images with my Copic markers-----my greatest stress reducer! I continually learn from all you friends out there with this same addiction--So THANKS!!!!
I am delighted to be part of this Fantastic Fussy and Fancy DT!!
