About Me

Hi: It's Merniebug here. Well actually it's Melanie but I answer to a variety of sobriquets. My mother had been reading Gone With The Wind at the time of my birth, thus, I was named Melanie. My friends call me Mel, It was my sister who coined the moniker Mernie when she was too young to pronounce Melanie correctly. It was eventually shortened to Mern. And then later when my nephew came along he called me Melwee because he couldn't pronounce Melanie either. Now my husband of thirty-four years is so confused he just calls me whatever comes to mind first. Actually I was Sweetheart until the day he realized the honeymoon was over. It was my cousin who added the bug to Mernie which is who I've always been to him and who I am on Splitcoast Stampers. So now that we've gotten past the odd name business, who else am I? I'm a child of the King, a wife and a mother to one grown son and five tailwaggin' fur babies. I am a retired interior designer, a rubber stamper, and a wanna be author who is just completing a first novel. I got into scrapping and rubber stamping to fill a creative void after retiring--it's less expensive than redecorating the house every year. LOL

The Forgotten Valentine

Oh, before I forget it again, I have one more Valentine to slip in here.     This tiny Just-Rite image was colored with Copics then layered with nestabilities hearts, a filigree heart by Cuttlebug, and bordering it all I used a Martha Stewart border punch clipped here and there to allow it to bend and conform to the heart shape.  Quick and easy to do.  The card corners were finished with Pearl Dew Drops and some paper piercing.  Gotta love those punches and dies.
