Updates about Me

Updated: Dec 25, 2019




UPDATE Dec 2019:

I am cleaning, destashing, organizing, selling a few things, and getting ready to put my house on the market. I hope to move back to Six Mile, SC sometime during 2020. Doing that, writing tutorials and teaching some classes in paper crafts is keeping me busy. I want to do some videos, but I just can't seem to get it together. I have the equipment and know how, I just don't want you to see me in my PJ's - which is how I work :)


I will try to continue to work on my website where I will have things in my stash to sell (Garage Sale), but it is not there yet. I am going to be cleaning out items and getting ready for new ones.

ABOUT 2014

I know I have been MIA for a while. Let me give you a bit of my life happenings. Over the last 5 years I have had one hip replaced (and other one about 11 years ago), open heart surgery to close a hole about the size of a silver dollar, a pace maker inserted, and gallbladder removal. As result of second hip surgery, I was left with a partially numb leg and foot; I wear a brace from knee to under my foot. No complaints. No pain to speak of. God has been good to me to "preserve" me this long. I have many wonderful stories that I hope to share with you during the year. 

ABOUT Oct 2018 Well, over the last 6 weeks, I have had swelling and pain in left foot. Went to vascular doctor and he said I have lymphedema. There are no meds or cure. So his instructions were to sleep with it elevated 8 hours; wear compression hose in day time; elevate in day whenever I am sitting. After the left foot was less swollen, I got swelling and redness and horrific pain in the right foot. I treated it the same way, but it took about 10 days for it to really improve. It's a bit hard to design and/or make paper crafts doing this. I hope to make myself get some "go go" juice soon and be creating again. I have been collecting ideas and links to some pretty cool stuff.


I am excited! Stay tuned to my FB and website!

I would appreciate you checking in with my Facebook page frequently. I think I can keep up FB but not all my media sites until I can sit up a bit longer at a time. FB: www.facebook.com/UpCountryStamper

If you haven't sent me your birthdate, name, mailing address and email address, please do! I have a surprise for you!
