About Me

This year I moved in with my fiance on our little 5-acre wonderland at the end of a dirt road with the most beautiful view of the sunset. I have 5 grown children and he has 3. Together we share 10 bitties (grandbabies) so far. We are blessed that all our kids get along and genuinely enjoy each other's company. Having 3 20-year-old boys has been eye opening, to say the least.

Favorite Music

I am obsessed with classical music, which all my kids hate. Vivaldi's 4 seasons is my current most listened to but Fur Elise is my favorite piece ever.

I also listen to a bit of regular music too with ACDC & KISS topping that list. Maybe a little RATT, just a little.

Favorite Books

I have been an avid reader since I was little. Being an asthmatic on a harvest crew meant that I was stuck inside with a book a lot.

My absolute favorite book ever is Jane Eyre, I read it once a year. I read anything but romance. I carry my Kindle everywhere I go and have about 300 books on it at any time.

I stopped reading Steven King a while ago, but someone at work is strung out on his new books, so I may inter-library loan some stuff and get caught back up.

Favorite Movies

Hmm, I am not a huge TV/Movie watcher but my favorite movies are goobery romances, which is odd because of all the books I read, I do not read romance novels.

  1. Murphys Romance
  2. You've Got Mail- I also like The Shop Around the Corner-which this movie is based on.
  3. Love Actually

Wow, I am so old!

Favorite Crafts

My favorite!

I have just found my craftiness within the last few years. I had always said I was not that type of person, I was a workaholic.

Now I am not the best crafter, but I love locking myself in my craft studio and working on a project.

-sewing, I have been sewing for about a year and while I am a complete novice I love it!

-papercrafts, I make cards monthly for our local nursing home, I enjoy altering comp books for journals, and tags/cards for my scripture study.

-creap ATC sites, I have made a few. I am definately learning, but I do kinda stink. I am working on backgrounds right now.

-obsess over decking out my Happy Planner. I am learning how to make my own stickers and it is challenging. I make my own journaling cards and dashboards for my planners. I get a lot of comments on those, I am not sure they are good comments tho...I have so much scrapbooking paper that I pick a pack of paper for each month so it cordinates through out, and just cut and tape on my squares. I have checked out etsy shops for weekly spreads, but I am a bit to frugal. I have found a print your own shop that I like and I may have to take the plunge.

-play with vinyl, I make signs and other pretties.

-cross stitch, haven't done a lot lately but I have completed several big projects over the years.

-crochet, prayer shawls mostly but I am trying out my hand at wash clothes so I am participate in some of those swaps.

-baking, I like decorating small cakes, making cinnamon rolls, and bread.

Things I love

All things Jesus! Although it does not hurt my feelings if you feel differently.

Hot Tea - Have not found one I don't like yet. Yes, I have...There is a Lipton orange ginger tea that I do not like at all.

Coffee - I like it black and strong, Jamaican is my favorite. Ethiopian is now my new 2nd favorite.

Chocolate - Any form or fashion. Aldi's imported chocolates are the bomb!

Sugar - I love sweets. That's why I have an OMG Becky! butt.

All Crafty things - washi, stickers, pretty paper, Cricut cuts, adhesives, ribbon, yarn, fabric. twine, paper clips...

My favorite colors in order of like - purple, hot pink, red, orange, bright green.

Lip Chap/Lip Balms - I am addicted and carry a soft lips square everywhere I go, but I like most brands and flavors.

Socks - I have a love for seasonal socks. My absolute favorite pair that I wear at least once a week is a Christmas pair with gingerbread men.

Comment: Sadly, both ends of your envie were slit completely open. Luckily, one of the ATCs made it (and is lovely!), but that (and a lot of red glitter!?!) was all that was left inside 🙁
Response: OH NO! Please let me resend to you. There was a small piece of glittered ribbon that I had mod podged so the glitter would not shed. I am guessing it got wet.
Comment: Thank you soooo much you send me really nice things of my favorite theme take care xxx
