About Me

Updated 3/6/2019

Hi everyone! Unfortunately I have recently received a couple of low ratings. this is due to me letting life getting me overwhelmed. I am so sorry as I have received 5's up to recently. I am not a flaker just a older woman that let life get the best of me. lol

I am the mother of 3 wonderful sons. I am so blessed to have the boys in my life. I also have a bonus son and a bonus daughter.

I have enjoyed making rag top lap size quilts for my family members. But haven't done that in a very long time. So I do have plans to go buy material and get one finished by September.

I am 51 years old and still like girly items like Kawaii and such. Any cute characters is a plus. I love dragonfly's, butterfly's, hearts, stationery, notecards, postcards, and small odd and ends. Send me a recipe or a joke that always is fun to see in a envelope!

As a family we like to go to car races (my brother Thomas and my son Blake race) Which causes this moma to have nightmares! On weekends everyone likes to go to the river and ride the four wheelers.

My most favorite thing to do is sit at home with my sweetie and watch tv and just hang out together. I usually write my pen pals or work in a journal during this time. Lately I've enjoyed working puzzles such as cross words and Sudoku.

Favorite Crafts

Making homemade envelopes, I have found that I enjoy sending and recieving these envies.

Making small quilts for gifts.

Journaling ( I like to write but can't draw anything)

Simple crafts (would love for you to share some ideals on fast and easy crafts)

I like the fast and easy crafts so I can see the results super fast!!

Favorite Books

One of my favorite authors is Debbie Macomber.

Romance books! (except I don't really like the historical romance)

Favorite Television

Total Diva's

Comment: Thank you so much for the card and stickers!
Comment: Karen! I so love the journal you sent to me!! I feel like I got to know you -how fun is that? I hope when I get to go on a cruise that you’ll be there. I think we would laugh at the same things and I know we would eat the same things. I love all the goodies you sent. I have a dog and a cat so the coupons are great. Can’t wait to try the mask, but I’m going to your blog first. Whoever gets you for a swap partner is really lucky. I wish I could give you more hearts! Love, Jan

I am so sorry! I updated my profile

Hi! Your blog is really nice! You seem to be very creative and crafty and take up many journalling projects through Swap bot. I especially like the 4 Things lists. I guess writing them down on the blog makes one more accountable to get things done. Keep on blogging!
