About Me

I'm a mother of 3 and Grandma of 2 adorable little boys. Ive been married for 23 years to my high school sweetheart.We have spent more than half our marriage on the beautiful island of Okinawa where I have come to love island life. I love hanging out with my family, traveling, reading and crafting.

I am a stay at home mom with my own little craft business: Search Crafted by Sally on Facebook :D or see URL

Favorite Crafts

I am first and foremost a crafter :D I enjoy all types of crafts and have many more I am wanting to learn. I have been crafting pretty much from the day I could hold a pencil. I have always made gifts instead of bought as I enjoyed putting my ♥ into each piece. In 2004 I started getting requests to make items for others to gift and that is when The Crazy Little Crafter was born (also known as Crafted by Sally) Along with my little shop I have taught adult and kids craft classes at Michaels and as a contracted instructor Japan.

Crafts I Do:

~Painting (my 1st ♥) I dont do realistic painting. I do more whimsical cartoony stuff. Love doing items for holidays, Military and Kids stuff. I paint on all types of surfaces.

~Paper Crafts- Love doing 3D items boxes, bags etc. Still a newbie to scrapbooking & cardmaking.

~Photography- new and learning every day :D



~WoodWorking (cut my own wood for projects)

Book Nerd

I love to read. Romance mainly as I'm a huge romantic at heart! But I am up for reading just about anything. My kindle is always near but I have to admit from time to time I just LOVE the feel and smell of an actual book.

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music. I love to dance so anything that would get me off my feet will do :D

also: ♥Beatles♥ 60's,70's,80's& 90's Era

Beach Boys, Elvis, Eagles, Queen, Dianna Ross, Motown...... the list goes on :D

TV & Movies

Dont watch alot of TV during the day but when I do need some downtime I love:

~Crime investigation type: NCIS, CSI, The next 48, True Crime etc.

~Comedy: Friends, Big Bang, My girl,

~Everything else: Game of Thrones, Orange is the new Black, Ray Donovan and Walking Dead (yeah even though 60% of the time im covering my eyes) just to name a few.

Anything that would allow me to cuddle on the couch for at least a half an hour with my hubby will do :D

MOVIES: I'm a BIG romantic so pretty much any girl flick. also the Super Hero movies, Avengers, Hulk, Spidey, Iron Man, Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy etc.

Comedies always a win too : Bridesmaids, The Heat (anything with Sandra Bullock or Melissa McCarthy) Land of the Lost (love Will Farrell) Elf ...... Just to name a few :D

I loved reading your profile. So many interests! We are in the Fall Potholder swap together, and I thought I would read profiles before starting the project. I am a quilter, so the one I plan to make and send will be that style.
