About Me

I've been crafting for years and enjoy crochet, knitting, paper arts and more. monkey I'm a wife to a wonderful man and homeschooling mother of 3 kids. We have 2 fish, 1 tortoise, a dog and a rabbit. We enjoy trips to the beach, camping and geocaching.

I love all things vintage/retro.

I collect Fiesta dishes, milk glass, buttons and squished pennies, and yarn.

I grew up in the 80's-90's and love the "alternative" music from those days, The Cure, STP, Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Crowded House, Erasure, Sublime etc.(KROQ if you're from So.Cal.) My "grown up" music choices favor contemporary Christian music Third Day, Reliant K, Jenny Owens, Jeremy Camp, OC Supertones (stuff I can safely listen to with my kids).

Favorite Movies

Favorite Books

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. I enjoy the Bible, historical fiction and Sci-fi, & the occasional non-fiction biography, like The Glass Castle. Reading A Wrinkle in Time and Brave New World in school got me hooked on the Sci-Fi genre. I really like the Narnia series-especially The Magician's Nephew. Orson Scott Card is one of my favorite authors I also like Anne McCaffrey & Jodi Picoult's books. I collect knitting and crochet pattern books & magazines.

I enjoy cooking and baking. I've always enjoyed making the cakes or cupcakes for my kids parties. I use my Crockpot often; we're busy with swim practice in the afternoons & evenings so it helps to have something hot and ready when we get home. I'd love to see your favorite family recipes. I'm more of a 30 Min. Meals or Semi-homemade type cook. My family has no food allergies but we're not big fans of fish.

Go Browncoats! :) I probably won't make a Firefly-themed bookmark for the Hand Stitched Bookmark swap (although that could be fun!), but I'm looking forward to swapping!
