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!
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.
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.
Since I've figured out how to make lists here are some random lists of things that I like.
Very Fine Grained Glitters
Warm & Light Scents
Bull Breed Dogs, such as boxers, mastiffs, staffordshires
The Swan Princess
Any Foreign versions of the above!
Really Anything, I'm sure I'll love any theme you want to make me! Especially if it comes off of something on my profile!
