So many changes with me. I got remarried on June 28th. The guy I'm married to now is 10 years younger then me...(RAWRRRRR...I'M A COUGAR!). He's a Marine combat veteran. He is the most wonderful man I have ever met and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him!!!
Me and my Marine
I just got a promotion at work. I am now a district manager assistant for Journal Gazette - Times Courier out of Mattoon, IL. I am hoping some day to be Circulation Manager, so I have some time and work to put in.
Other then that...I am still crocheting up a storm, did you think I'd ever stop? lol Yes I still have Tango, and I have 4 other cats now. I HAVE BECOME A CRAZY CAT LADY!!! lol I also have a lab/pit mix, Gunner and a yellow lab puppy Cotton (he looks like the Cottonelle commercial puppy).
I'm 32 years old. I don't have any kids. However, my sister's kids are "my babies." Heather is 10 and Andrew is 8. They are my heart. Since I am unable to have children, I spoil those kids rotten! LOL
I am like many other crafters out there, if I don't like something I have received, I'll "regift" it to someone else. I figure just because I don't like it doesn't mean someone else won't either!
I also try to re-use packaging if I can to recycle and save a little money.
I am always open to private swaps. Just pm me and we'll get something made up!
If you need an angel, contact me, I might be able to help.
On a personal note, I like playing dress up and letting my 10 yr old niece make me beautiful, feather boas, playing in the rain with my niece and nephew or just snuggling in the recliner with them watching Alice in Wonderland. I love being free to be me and feeling the love of my family because of it. I am Pro-Life, Pro-American, Pro-Guns and Pro-Soldiers. I am Anti-War, Anti-Prejudice and Anti-Hate. I will not discuss my beliefs with anyone. I am not political, but I do have my beliefs. I am a redneck, blue collar, middle class white girl. I am a Libra and I do embody many things that means. I am indecisive, I can see both sides of an arguement. I am passionate, tempermental and obnoxious. I love to laugh and have fun, but I can also sit down and read an entire book in a day. I am who I am, and I don't apologize for it. I am forgiving and understanding and have learned to let things go instead of creating a confrontation. Because of not being able to conceive, it is very upseting for me to know people who have abortions, but believe it is everyone's right to have one. I may be contradictive, but I don't mean to be. I am always sincere and honest and always have the best of intentions. I look for the best in people and sometimes have the wool pulled over my eyes. I can be naive, but stubborn. I can be obnoxious, but quiet. I am normal, but unusual. I am a contradiction. People find me fun and funny, if a little intimidating.
I am who I am.
Member since January 2007.
Fun and cute crochet patterns...specifically small things....hats, scarves, kitcheny things, amigurumi, flowers, etc.
easy knitting patterns. I am trying knitting again and want to see how well I can do it.
Patterns for small things to sew as well...mug rugs, coin pouches, wallets, etc. Hand sew or machine sew is fine.
Sewing accessories (I desperatly need quilting pins...I had so many and lost them last time I moved...I also need any and every shade of cotton thread you can find. Helps for quilting! And really any useful quilting/sewing tool would be appreciated!!!)
DESPERATELY NEED ROTARY CUTTER BLADES!!! The medium(sz 45) sized ones!!!
I can always use unused US postage stamps.
Any items that feature pit bulls, an orange cat or cats in general.
anything Marine Corps related. I did marry a Marine after all. :) Marine Wife stuff is what I really want.
Things I absolutely adore:
Things my Huzz would love
Colors: Orange, pink, turquoise, black, and anything chocolate brown with a bright color
Music: I love music from the 50's, what is called "oldies" styles. I will "bee-bop" to that music all day long! I also love classic rock and WEIRD AL YANKOVIC. I have loved Weird Al since his fluffy curly hair and soda bottle bottom glasses.
Movies/TV: I love Tim Burton movies, scary movies, and touchy-feely comedies. I love paranormal, UFO, serial killers, weird unusual or freaky things. I also love Rocky Horror Picture Show!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Supernatural. I only need seasons 2 & 4 and I have the whole series so far.
Books: Stephen King is my most favorite author of all time. I also love Ann Rule and Jefferson Bass.
I love thriller, scary, true crime, serial killing or any other kind of scary type of book to read. My husband loves William Johnstone books and similiar type ones.
I am looking for thin muslin, white fabric (any shade is fine) and even thin pale fabrics. I make "string" quilts and use this fabric as backing.
I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO SWAP WITH FOR FABRIC!!
I love yarn of all kinds. I admit to being yarn addicted. If I go into a store and I know they have yarn, I go and look even if I have no money in my pocket. Some of my favorites include....
Soft yarns; 'I LOVE This Brand of Yarn' is a good yarn and cheaper then some others. Good for projects that require a lot of yarn and sturdy enough for anything.
I love colors of all kinds. No special colors are needed, I can always find an accent yarn to use with a single skein of something extra special.
I prefer NON-FROGGED yarn. This means I don't want yarn from old sweaters or old afghans you have found at thrift stores or rummage sales. You never know what kind of shape the yarn will be in and I also have asthma so you never know what smells are in the yarn itself.
Tango was born in May 2009. He is a tiger striped orange tabby cat. He is my bedtime snuggle bug. He is the first cat I ever got. I rescued him when he was 4 weeks old. He and I have been through a lot.
Lucas was born April 2011. He is a tiger striped grey/black tabby cat. He is the fattest cat we have at 15 pounds. LOL We call him Buddah Belly because he's got a nice soft big belly. He will sometimes wake me up just to pet him. He was given to me by my sister because his mom abandoned him when he was about 5 weeks old.
Pepper came to us in April 2012. She was about 6 months at that time. She is calico and siamese mix. She LOVES to sit on the top of doors when they are open. She is the most standoffish of our cats. It's only been since she's gotten fixed that she has started being affectionate with us.
Sissy came to us at the same time and from the same people as pepper in April 2012. She's about 3 years at that time. She is definately the boss of the cats, but at the same time she is the most "fragile" in temperment. I think she was mistreated at some time in her life. She likes to lay on my back or belly when I am laying down. She's sweet!
Hank is the baby. He was born April 2012. He and Pepper are best buds...they run around the house acting like crazies! He also loves to cuddle with the other boys...Tango and Lucas. Sissy doesn't really like him so she always yells at him when he gets close to her. He is super sweet and affectionate just like the rest!
The whole Kitty Klan:
This is Gunner. Lab/Pit mix. Think's he's a lapdog. He is about 2....we've had him for a year now. You rub his belly and he will let you do anything...almost. LOL
This is Cotton. He is lab/Brittany Spaniel mix. He was born 01/26/13. He's working on being housebroken. He wants to do EVERYTHING Gunner does and whines and whines if he can't. LOL Sometimes baby dogs can't do the same things big dogs can. He's a doll.
