About Me

We got orders to Florida!! Woohoo!! We move November 26th 2012!

We are running tea parties in my "magical" garden this summer again! I had so much fun last year with setting them up! There's a white wrought iron metal table and four chairs to be the main centerpiece. Basically people who want to host a party will rent my garden out for a few hours! It gives us a little extra money to play with as well! Last year we had some elderly women come all dressed up in their finest with huge hats! It was so cute!

I'm a stay at home mom to three children who definitely keep me busy! I am happily married to a man who's been in the military for the past 8 years. We've been together for almost 13 years now, married for 9 years.

I live in Texas and love it. Been here my entire life. I'd love to go elsewhere and I hope to do that soon. My husband recently changed his "dreamsheet" and put in for some foreign countries, so fingers crossed we get to go!

I'm a garden lover and in the five years we've been at our home we bought I've turned the entire backyard into a garden. Well most of it isn't fully complete but two major parts of it is. My husband built me a pond with a mini running waterfall and eventually I'd like to get some bright and colorful goldfish to put into the pond. I've got fairy doors brightening up almost every part of it. It's fun to go out and spot a new location for my doors. I handmake all my fairy doors. I have my own little private spot in the garden on a wooden bench to read and draw.

I took two years of photography and two years of architecture and of course all the basics. I'm still not sure what I want to be when I "grow up" as I love to learn about new things!

My mom had this crazy idea of naming her only daughter as her favorite fruit. So yes my real name is Cherry. It's grown on me throughout the years. I used to hate my name growing up and would always change it to Sherry as a lot of kids can be mean when you're young and tend to make fun of me because of my name. But I adore it now. It's definitely different!!


For the other members of my household:

Hubby (Mark) is a very unique person. He loves to build things. Whether it's putting together a new shed or building a table and chairs. He loves handmade soaps with manly scents, chocolate and candies from other countries (I've been sharing my stash and he's addicted)!! Arizona Sweet Tea (the brand) and the watermelon punch they have. He wears a size Medium in T-shirts and Large in long sleeves (XL in nice long sleeved dress shirts). He likes the occassional shoot em up video game but he's not a hardcore player.

My daughter is 12 (Lena) and loves Justin Bieber, the colors pink, sky blue and lavender. She loves beads and making different crafts (felt, jewelry, etc). She loves purses to carry around her money and stuff in. Loves lip balm (please flavored and no colored glosses or balms, no makeup please). She loves hard candies and school!!!

My son is 9 (Phillip) and loves cars and trucks, pokemon, video games (especially the Wii), pokemon trading cards, hotwheels, board games, playing outside. He's a very sweet shy boy and is very giving.

My other son is 4 years old (Scott) and just about anything that makes a lot of noise he adores. Pots and pans with wooden spoons (seems to like giving me headaches with it daily..lol). Anything bright and colorful and those all wonderful cardboard boxes to climb in and out of!! He also loves trucks and playing in the dirt!!

Baby Number 4 - I am super excited. We have having our 4th and last child and it's a girl!! We have a first name of Avah picked out already. I am due Jan 20th 2013!!

We do have doggies and kitties and of course they love the occasional treats and toys!

Favorite Crafts

I love sewing and I sew for my children and myself and patch up some things of hubbys. I rarely buy clothing for my children since nowadays it just seems so expensive. I'm always sitting in front of the sewing machine! I also can make purses, coinpurses, stuffed animals, clothing and many more items! I love to create!

I do a number of scrapbooking items too. I have four scrapbooks ongoing right now that I'm in the middle of. I love pretty papers, felt and fabric embellishments, brads, eyelets, GLITTER, and many more wonderful scrapbooking goodies. I love the 3D stickers that seem to just pop right off the page.

I love altering things as well, just about anything I can get my hands on. I do ATCs, APCs, jewelry boxes, journals, tea boxes, etc. I love transforming something plain into something wonderful!

My favorite colors are Red, Black, Pink, White, Green and Blue.

Favorite Movies

I'm a huge movie buff and love all kinds of movies. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Action, Drama, etc. We don't have normal cable so I'm always watching movies. We signed for Netflix a couple of years ago and I use it religiously! We also watch our TV shows on Hulu! I love it.

sweet3pea3 rated for Etsy Favorite Swap! Regional! on Aug 29, 2009
Comment: I haven't received anything from this swap. Haven't had decent communication about it either. I Have been very patient about this. Will rerate if I ever receive anything.
Response: I've had the seller send to you TWICE now. I'm confused and don't know what to do at this point. I'm iffy on spending more at etsy and it not arrive as it seems not to. I've offered a profile surprise to make up for this as well. My internet and cable has been down due to a line hit at our house and I haven't been able to fully get on until now. Now she won't reply so it seems I won't be able to get this changed :( Here is the invoice link to show I purchased and paid before the deadline http://www.etsy.com/your/orders/11620455. April 2011 Have sent another pm to member
Comment: WOW I totally love everything you sent. The T-shirt fits perfect and is great, Mickey is by my computer and well what more can i say than thanks a million, hope you get your internet back soon. xxxxxxxxxx

Hello Cherry - I have yet to receive the Lego gift card you said you ordered for the things you had purchased from me. Is there a way to check the order status of the card or call and find out? I also see that the box I sent you from the DC has arrived to you. So please do let me know what is going on. Thanks.

CajunLady on Jul 11, 2012:

I agree with Diane. You're only 12 weeks and 3 days along. It's impossible to know what the sex of the baby is now. Dr's can't even see the sex of the baby until 16-20 weeks.

VivaLaDiane on Jul 3, 2012:

Just a tip. It is medically impossible to know the sex of your child at this point. So, you probably don't want to buy a lot of pink things right now. If you do, save those receipts girl!!!

TC on Jun 24, 2012:

I'm sorry, I mistakenly allowed you to join FOPS. One of the group rules is that participants have to be an active swapper, doing at least one swap per month. I see that you haven't swapped in a year. I will have to remove you until you meet group requirements.

I loved reading your profile because it has so much detail and actually go pretty in-depth! I can only imagine how nice that must e for your swapping partners!
I love making scrapbook pages and have a ridiculous amount of supplies so if you ever want to do a swap I'd love to (I'll also look for you name in swaps now). I too have multiple books going on at once. You should post photos of your pages on your Flickr-I would love to see what they look like and what they are about.
Oh yeah- I LOVE bath and body products and I never saw any other profile with specifics on it. If you ever want to swap some thins I would love to! Cheers to your amazingly well filled out and lovely to read profile!

-Leave A Nice Comment #2- Hello Cherry! Wow your profile was just so pleasant to read! So detailed about so much. Even though i am much younger then you it seems that you and i have quite a few things in common. :) I love that you take the time to make clothes for yourself and your family! With the way prices are that is the way to go now a days. Good luck with the "magical" garden this year, sounds like an awesome idea! Hugs, Tracey

~~Leave a Nice Comment #2~~

Greetings, Cherry! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your profile, as we have a lot in common and it contains so much detail! It would be easy to be your swap partner because you have such a wonderful profile!

I absolutely adore that you rent out your garden for tea parties. How sweet! I love drinking tea, and I can just imagine doing so in a garden at a white wrought iron table in the summer - beautiful! I also adore that the elderly ladies came to visit dressed to the nine with their hats! That makes me smile! :)

I hope you and your family are having a wonderful Spring/Summer! Best wishes to you and your entire family!

Cheers, Heather

Bruge on Jun 2, 2011:

Hi Cherry Blossom! I am your partner from the "Leave A Nice Comment #2" swap. I think that making tea parties in your garden is so much fun. I love tea too and especially I love to drink it outside, in nature, to feel that mild wind, see beautiful flowers and all beauty of nature. Best wishes for your family from Bruge :)

angeleyzee on Jun 2, 2011:

Hello, I am one of your partners for the Leave A Nice Comment #2 swap. First off I want to thank your hubby for all that he does for our country, me also being a military wife, I know how nice it is to hear this. I do hope that your hubby is doing better and is well on the road to full recovery, wow 3 kids , that is sure to keep you busy.
I hope your able to get all of your scrapbooks done, I keep saying I'm going to do a couple but can't seem to find the time to get to any of them. Hope you and your family are having a blessed week.
