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

You Are So Busted...

I have a sweet little card to share with all of you today using another digital image.  This one is from Mo’s Digital Pencil.  I really like her style.  Mo's characters expressions and mannerisms are so right on the mark. This one is Sam, and Sam has been caught drawing on the wall with his crayons.  I colored him with Copic Markers but I am just learning to use them and I realize I need new paper as this paper allows the colors to bleed.   Accessories used: Square Nesties, Round Nesties, Buttons, twine, ribbon, and a button brad.  The artist palette is clip art down loaded from the internet. 

Quote for today

Home is where your mom is.
