When it rains it pours! so I will be finishing up the swaps I have out now and then I will be taking a break from swapping for awhile until things get settled down around here! Thanks everyone for the well wishes for our family! :)
I am a proud armywife! I have 4 wonderful kids 3 boys and our last was a little girl. We move around quite often. we are currently in the midwest. We lived in Germany for 3 1/2 years and we loved it! It was so interesting seeing the sights of Europe! I am a stay at home mom, I try to keep a stable schedule for the kids since dad is gone alot. He is Currently deployed for a year.He will be home in the next few weeks!!!!
I love different types of crafting! card making, sewing, scrapping, stamping, jewelery making, and I am trying learn to knit. I also am learning how to do cake decorating. I just started making ATC's!! With having a big family I cook ALOT! I really enjoy it and I am always looking for new recipes.
I collect Polish Pottery (I started my collection by going to the pottery shops in Poland so much cheaper prices than what you pay here!) I would say my decor is country vintage chic is that a term?? alot of black wrought iron, and black wooden shelves decorate my walls. My living room has pieces I collected from our travels I always check out the thrift, vintage, antique shops wherever we go. I do have a small postcard collection of places in Germany we visited and I found some awesome used postcards from the war era at a antique shop in Germany, they have the checked mail stamp from the german forces on them. I love vintage postcards. I just LOVE vintage items period! :)
As for reading I love to read books about families, or friends, I just have trouble finding the time with the four kids. I love the twilight series, Sookie stackhouse series, and all of Debbie macomber books. I always need bookmarks.
I am a handbagaholic! I change bags just about every week! Currently I am using the bigger bags with a short shoulder strap, that way I have plenty of room for all the kids stuff!
My family and I are HUGE Nascar fans!! My driver is #48 Jimmie Johnson and my hubby's driver is #88 Dale Earnhardt JR.
