"MY SONS 4th BIRTHDAY IS FEB. 9th!!"

I am 29, and married to a awsome man!! He as helped me so much and is always there when you need him most. I have a 3yr old son that as shown more strengh in his 3 years than most have to show in a life time. He was born at 21 weeks and 5 days weighing 1lb 5.oz and 10in long. He had a rough first year and had to fight for his life. Now he is a happy healthy 3 year old that there is no stopping or slowing down. He is the light of our lifes!! I get to stay at home with him and we enjoy are days and do many crafts. I love my sons art work and collect it all. We enjoy making stuff together. I am a open person and don't look down on any body. We are all our on selfs and know what makes us happy. LIFE IS TO BE ENJOYED, in the way that makes us happy!! My aunt says i'm an old soul, and should have been born in a diffrent time, if i had my choice it would be 1500-1800s. Or 50s so i could have been a teenager in the 60s. LOL!!

I am the Creative Activities Leader of MOPS (Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers) and really love being envolved with such wonderful women. we have a great time & if you think you would like info on this or were to find one in your area let me know, i will help you out with it..

I eat a lot of candy, desserts, and love chocolate of any kind!!! Would love to try some chocolate from other countrys ecspecially Europe. I am always looking for a new craft or art project to do. That is one of my goals of being on here. Finding new things to do that I havn't thought or heard of yet. And I have to say it looks promising, like ATC's, i can't wait to make one. And making somthing great out of matchboxs looks like a whole lot of fun. I hope I don't over do any of this, but every thing I see says a well filled out profile so I will try.

My Favorite Things!!

Just a little list of the things I enjoy!! I love purpel, greens and blues, red, black, and tans, browns, natural colors. Vintage fabric, aprons, toys, wood, peices, furniture, quilt blocks, okay any thing that is vintage I LOVE IT!!! Any thing to do with crafts I use it , want it, and will buy it. I like to TRY to garden, it looks more like a rock garden, but I like to attract the birds and butterflys. I love to paint canvas, walls, figurines, clay, wood. If you can paint it I do. I love to drink Hot teas, I will try any tea out there and have only found a few that i don't care for. I collect butterflys, cows, small trinckets, old make up cases, angels, fairies, gothic fairies, vitage hankies, aprons, rocks or stones, beads, thimbles,and bird houses. Buttons and I have a lot of magnets & make my own often. Painted rocks make great ones!! I love old jewlrey, like broches, necklaces, and braclets hair barrets & combs, brush and mirror sets. I love rings that open (poison rings) they are always uniqe. I like to make the little Fairy doors out of clay, wood, or twigs & stones. My fav scents are, fresh, citrius, light floral, sandle wood, earthy in a good way. No musk or vannila, can't stand it! Love lavender, chamomile, cucumber, and fruits. I like pic of odd things, flowers, people and mountin scens. Clouds, and awsome sun sets. In person and painted. i like to take pics of loved ones, not good at it but I have a ton a pics. (need to get some scrapbooking done) but havn't done so in 2 years. Quilting is my reasent adventure and I am enjoying it. I am a chcolate fan, any thing sweet and drink a lot of hot teas.We have to many sweets in the house but we enjoy it. Making it and eating. And a coke every once in a while. Of course my family and friends are high on my list. I enjoy reading quotes and have them all around me to ready or give out to people who might need a uplifting or a laugh. I like finding Blogs that have useful fun info in them. My fav is WhiMSy love, she is great!! and any good craft blog. tipnutt.com is a must have thing for me, I get so much good stuff from there and would not know what to do with out it now... I enjoy good bath stuff, and make it often. I also love going to the Natruel store and love herbs, they smell great and do good things... Enjoy cooking, well bake sweet things and help my husband cook. But i don't like to make dinner by myself. I have a large collection or cook books and add more often. Glass wear, tea cups sets, vases, plates and E6000 (a great glue) will always put a smile on my face. And jars, oh how i love jars (with corks or lids) i use them for my bath prducts and a few other things. And one more thing, i always wear funny odd socks. I love them. As long as there not just plane jane white socks they make me smile :)

Favorite Music

I enjoy all music!! Some more than others. Country, pop, r&b, soul, christian, gospel, blue grass, instrumental, opra, oldies, classic, 60's, 70's, 80's, and pop. And there is some really good Childrens music out there that I am coming to enjoy a great deal... I have lived my life with music around me at all times. As a child we had so many people at our house all the time and there was always dancing and music. Up untill age 13 almost every Sunday was spent at great grandmothers house with the WHOLE family and there instruments singing and playing all afternoon. That was are Sunday dinner time. I can see the point of few in all music and some sounds better than others to me but it is all Great to some one.

Favorite Books

I like magazines, I can look through when i like and put it down when I need to with out feeling like I need to pic it right away. I use to read novels, but since I had my son i just don't get the time to really get in to them any more. When I read I get lost in it and that just don't work right now. I do read my Bible and some short stories, and blogs. Craft books & magazines are always welcomed, even clippings out of your old magizines..

Favorite Television

House, Desperate House Wifes, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Ghost Whisperer, Good Eats, Ace of Cakes, Doll House, I wish they still had the Sarah Cronicale files "Terminater" and Moonlight, I loved them and i am mad that there gone. DIY network, Food network and the DISC channel. I do watch Soaps but I can go a day or two with out doing so and be okay with it. I like a lot of shows and we DVR many so we can watch later. Most of the time there is two on at same time so we record one to watch the other. I think we watch to much TV now, but i love my shows!

Favorite Crafts

I sew, quilt, paint, and turn old things in to something new, clay work, build bird houses. I do a lot of kid crafts with my son, and come up with ideas for moms to do with there children. So anything to do with kiddie crafts is good for me. Making magnets with rocks, stones, glass, old forks, spoons, Mini pic fram, mini any thing, dried flowers, buttons, and antything I think would make a nice one. I also like to make jewlry, beading, wire and hand made clay beads. I have been trying to make thimbels, i'll have to get back to you on if it's going well and becoms a hobby, LOL.... I also love to make bath salts, scrubs, lotions, perfumes & use herbs in all of it for the scnet, & oils too. I also like to mix paints to make new ones, I know it's odd but I rather enjoy creating new colors. ;) I like to turn glass wear that I get at thrift stores and yard sells into other things. Like taking a old vase and a nice vintage plate glueing together to make a cake plate. Or turning tea cups & saucers into a bird or butterfly bath/drinking cup that you put in the garden. Making neat stuff out of felt, and making sock puppets. Making dream catchers for adults and kids, the ones i make for new babies are my fav though. button Fairy is a new love of mine, & will be doing swapps with buttons!!

Things I don't enjoy!

There is not too much, I am allergic to Latex, hopps, green bell peppers and bananas, yes bananas. I am deathly allergic and can not come with in 10 feet of were they have once laid. It is awful, my husband loves them and my son as never even tasted of one yet. FAKE SUGAR!! can not stand the taste of that stuff. I don't like when people look down on others for any reasson. We all have our falts. I am not into real girly things and don't like the bubble gum pink color. I don't like polka-dots, they look like they need smushed. I don't need Cute stickers, please no lisa frank, hello kitty, any cuutesy ones. I do like the scrap book stickers that have dried flowers in them & other stickers.

Pictures of Plans, deer or wild life for his "man cave" Hot cocoas and any Exteamly sour candy you can find. If you now of some from were you are please send it. He loves it and as tried it all from here so we are having a hard time finding new stuff for him. And sour skittles or war heads from USA are not sour to him.

Candy molds, or silk pads would be a nice surprise** Home made Ice cream recipes too. If you have the Orange Crush Ice cream rec. please PM me with it or I will trade for it.

Comment: Thank you so much! I really liked the hair accessories you chose for me and I was really amazed by the beautiful hair sticks you made! So thoughtful and really impressive. I actually don't have any hair sticks so I was pretty excited! The cider was such a nice touch too, I really love that stuff. Thank you so much for a great & thoughtful swap! <3
Response: Your welcome!! I hope you would like the hair sticks, that was my first time to decopauge them. And i liked how they turned out. I always just paint and marble them. But when i seen you loved animals so much i had to try it like that. I hope they are smooth enough to slide threw your hair... I love the cider too, and like that it comes in little packs like that now. I couldn't find any big wild bows in my area, i was sad about. I had seen a super big Red animal print bow back in the end of summer, and i searched for that thing after i seen you liked the big bows, but never found one so i had to settal for the things i found. I hope they are somthing you will wear. Thank you for the rate, and for the heart!! Have a Blessed Year, and i hope to swap with you again..
