Updated: Jan. 16, 2012 My name is Jessi. I have a wonderful husband and 3 little kidletsl. They are my everything. I like to read, journal, do random crafty things, take tons of pictures and send lots of mail.
Adam and I were married on April 1st 2005, yes April Fools Day. He fully supports my crafty/swapping habits. His birthday is July 17. His favorite color is mint green and he loves trying out flavored coffees, peanut butter cups and pretty much any type of gummy candy you can throw at him.
Paige is five and and was born on the 26th anniversary of Mount. St. Helen's eruption (5/18/06). She is in Kindergarten now and loves playing with stickers, coloring books and her dolls. She likes mermaids, Kai-lan and anything princessy, especially Rapunzal from Disney's Tangled.
Paige and I both have alopecia so please don't send any hair accessories If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask!
Noah is four. He was born on Veteran's Day(11/11/07) and was 10lbs 11ozs! He's my momma's boy and the strong silent type. He doesn't talk much but he's very good with puzzles and he loves playing with his cars and trucks.
Emily was born on Feb 18, 2011 (we were hoping for Valentine's Day!). She is a total Daddy's Girl and loves her Minnie Mouse doll.
I have a cat named Jasmin who is 11 years old and thinks she is the queen of the house. She pretty much just sleeps on my bed all day.
In Nov. 2011 we adopted Luna. She is a white long haired kitty with two crescent moons on her forehead and about 2 years old.
Sasha is our Australian cattle dog. She was born in Nov. 2011 so still very much a puppy.
I love to cross stitch. I try to stick to smaller patterns so that I might actually finish them but I have a few bigger ones floating around. I don't seem to have the attention span for the really big patterns although I wish I did.
I've been crocheting for about 7 years and also know the basics of knitting. I also like to make chunky pages/books, altered notebooks and clipboards and sometimes swap FB's and decos. I like to jump around between different projects and crafts.
Once in a while I attempt a bit of quilting, sewing and some random paper crafts.
I like to watch my shows and movies while crafting - Hulu.com and netflix are my best friends!
Glee, House, Fringe, Lie to Me, Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Once Upon A Time, Star Trek, Haven, Combat Hospital, Iron Chef America and probably a bunch more I can't think of at the moment
mostly fantasy, distopian and historical romance and the occasional chic lit.
Pirates of the Caribbean, The Fifth Element, Disney!, the original Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Center Stage, Star Trek
Rascal Flatts, Katy Perry, Ke$ha
I collect My Little Ponies, mostly the original ones from the 80's. I also collect Disney trading pins and old keys, matryoshkas and lucky cats.
