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

I must be getting all watered up for that corned beef and cabbage next week because I can’t seem to get St Patrick’s Day out of my mind as evidenced by today’s card.   Ever do one of those projects where it just doesn’t go together right but the more you work on it, the worse it gets?  Well that’s this card.  I had such high hopes for it in the beginning but what you see is what you get.  Oh well, as my darling hubby would say, “Everyday can’t be Christmas.”    The images colored with Copics, are from Sassy Cheryl’s Digitals and can be found here:
Thought for today:
What’d you expect, a pot O’ gold?
