About Me

Well I am sorry for not being on here more often or joining more swaps but my husbands pay got cut and sence Thursday we had to take the dog to the vet and found out on Friday he has kidney failure. So we are spending a lot of time with him. We know what the end result is and I can not face this at all. It makes me so mad and angry that the vets won't let you make payments. So we have to take just about ALL my husband s check and do what we can each week, Not fair. As I have to sit here every day and watch my dog die and suffer. But I will ALWAYS look at the bright side when everything is said and done is that I gave him an extra 5 1/2 years and boy they were the best for him and me. I spoiled him and he knows it. He try's so hard not to show he is sick. I want to throw this out there, I just became the Chair Person at my Daughter's School for Box Tops. SO if anyone could send me them when ever they can Oh how I would be so happy. We rank number 39 and I want to be number 1 and I can not do this alone. THANK YOU ALL so much. I celebrated my 1 year Anniversary March 23!!!! :}}}} It is the best thing I did was to marry my best friend. I wish I found him a long time ago at a much younger age. I thought sence it's been all most a year sence I got married that I would go with just my new name and not both. I love everything I have gotten and done so far. What ever swaps I'm in I will finish up thou. I have never flaked anyone. I have even Angeled someone. I will pick a few here and there so I'm not forgotten. I have made a lot of nice friends. Thank you.I'm 44, I have a 15 year old Daughter, 2 step children age 29 and 32, and 2 grandsons ages 8 years and 3 year old, 1 granddaughter 2 years old. I just started back to work Seasonal/ Part time. I just got married March 23,2012. I have a Wonderful Husband. We have been together for 13 years. I also have a German Shepard dog, that I love with my whole heart. We saved him from being killed. I love country music but I listen to everything. My favorite movies are Marley and Me and any thing to do with puppies. I love to make all kinds of crafts. I work with plastic canvas, I want to learn more on crocheting. I love to make cards. I love baking all the time. I really like just about anything. I'm not really that fussy. If I could,open my own shop for a bakery and craft shop all into one I would. That has been a BIG DREAM for me sence I was about 12 years old.

Favorite Crafts

I love to make all kinds of crafts. I do alot of card making. I do baking, cakes and everytihng. I make candy bouguet. Home made wreath's with fabric. I do little croching, but would like to learn more. Not much into scapbooking. I might just have to try to make one with my Wedding photes. I would like to try to put one together for my Daughter from the time she was born till she Graduates 12 Th grade. Any ideas or help you can pass along to do this would be GREAT. I'm not fussy at all. I like paper, stamps, ink, markers, colored pencils, gel pens, anything to add on to make cards. I'm a very simple person. My Daighter loves to do crafts with me. If my dog could help me he would to. My family is my whole world. :).

My Daughter

I have 1 Daughter her name is Britney B. who is 17 years old. Her Birthday is in Oct. She really is not a fussy child. She likes just about anything. She loves to wear fake nails, and make up. She loves all kinds of crafts. When I'm doing my crafts she always wants to help me. She loves to bake. She is learning how to cook. She loves to shop. Her favorite color is purple and Blue. But likes all colors. She has the new loom to make bracelets, she is ALWAYS asking for the bands to make them in the different colors.

ATC'S

WOW now that I am making these I love them. I never thought I could down size anything. Well I can and I am having a lot of fun. Most of the time I make my ATC first then a card to match. AMAZING!!!! I'm glad I started doing this.

Flakers

I just want to let every one know I always sent out my packages no matter what. I always hit send. I have never flaked anyone so in do respect I don't want or like when people flake me. This is suppose to be fun but when fllackers flake me it makes me mad. It has happen a lot lately. I don't have a lot of money to spend but I don't flake anyone. I feel like I won't be joining many anymore because of it. Pretty sad. I enjoyed the people I have met. I hope all you flakers feel real good about yourself.

Things I could Use

Things I could really use is Black Ink Pads, Marker any color, Black Stazon ink pad, Ribbon, Stamps, and lots of ideas for greeting cards and atc's. I have been trying to do a lot of these, so I have them when I need them.

The tough end of 2013

Well as you ALL know I have not been on much. I am so missing it too. But as of 11/27/13 we had to put our dog down and I am still not over this. I am so hurt now and missing him. There is not a day that goes by I do not cry for him.

Second thing my husband got hurt on the job Dec 9, 2013. He will be o k but that is a whole other thing I am dealing with. We don't know how long he will be out of work,. But I thought I would try to do a few swaps here and there when I find I can.

Well my Husband is still out of work he not only got hurt but is really sick and weak and NO ONE can find out what is wrong. We have been to the hospital 6 times now. I have a hard time doing anything cause he needs me with him at all times. If I could have LOTS of prayers for him. Him my daughter and myself all just want him to get better. I feel so bad that a man who never complains always tells me how sick he is and feels like he is dying Thank you for ALL the prayers.

I really miss every one. So my first swap of the year 2014 is done woohoo!!!!.

About Me

So it has been a while since I got on here. A lot has been happening. My husband is still not well. He is 100% disabled. So for the last almost year I worked full time till one night the job decided to lay me off. So it took me 6 months to move by myself no help. Now no money coming in. I still don't have my craft room set up in new place. Stressing over everything. I really want to craft but I'm so tired and no money I can not. I just want my life to have a real BIG turn around. I miss everyone of you.
