It has been 7 years since I joined this online community and my goal has been to reach fifty articles. I am almost there and it is about time to craft a short bio and list of articles to put the work into prespective for myself and for those that may desire a face with the information. Please accept my humble introduction at long last.
Sherry Venegas and Paperfacets
Along time ago I reserved paperfacets as a dot com. Over 15 years I have used the name for several online venues including, finally, a website!
2 Inch Gift Tags
My name is Sherry and I was born April 9, 1948 putting me smack in the baby boomer era. I am from St, Paul, Minnesota and from the age of five I grow up in Southern California. Immediately after high school in 1966 I was hired at Pacific Telephone, now at&t, and worked there for 40 years retiring in 2008.
During that time much has transpired. I am married to Edward and have three children. Just this October, 2018 I have the happy occassion to become a grandmother for the first time to Emilio. Writing on the Internet began in 2005 and the first published posting was about paper crafting. With encouragement from a popular online community I started writing about other interests. I still know people from that first online community and that is the reason I am here at Wizzley.
My writings are about an average Western life stylist enjoying the outdoors, the garden, travel, reading and family. These articles are the next place to learn a bit more about me. Start by browsing the categories listed below starting with crafts.
Handmade Greetings by Paperfacets Available at Shabbyology
Crafts and the Arts
Crafts and scrapbooking did not come an interest till the mid nineties. Around 2003 a craft book about tea bag folding caught my eye at a scrapbooking fair. The technique became a collecting outlet. Paper was bought and soon medallion making was in full production. Mostly the rosettes were used for greetings, gift tags and bookmarks. Since the beginning of 2017 the newst creations still being made are displayed and for sale at Shabbyology in Covina. If you are in San Gabriel Valley please stop by and enjoy this entertaining store of antiques, home decor in country, cottage and shabby chic motifs, plus pieces from the craft and artist community.
Good Things to Eat
The Fall Season
Halloween is as big as Christmas in the US for consumer spending. People spend on decorations, costumes, food and parties. Entertainment is growing with Halloween themed big screen movies coming out every year. Pop up stores for Halloweeen are more emorous than for the year end Holidays.
The day is more for adults now. We do not even get trick-or-tweeters in are neighborhood. The decorations and the whole fall season is still a favortie time of the year for me.
