About Me

Updated 4/4/2014

Hello! I am wanting to update my profile. Although I don't think much has changed since last year. I am still enjoying swap bot but have cut back quite a lot since I have started. Am finding out how much I miss getting fun mail. My favorite swaps are long term journals that are 3 months long.

I am the mother of 3 wonderful boys. I am so blessed to have the boys in my life. I also have a bonus son and a bonus daughter.

In May 2010 I lost my Grandma and mom 3 days apart. It has been very different in my world since then. I have enjoyed making rag top lap size quilts for my family members. But haven't done that in a very long time. So I do have plans to go buy material and get one finished by September.

I am 46 years old and still like girly items like Hello Kitty and Kawaii and such. Any cute characters is a plus. I love dragonfly's, butterfly's, hearts, stationery, notecards, postcards, and small odd and ends. Send me a recipe or a joke that always is fun to see in a envelope!

As a family we like to go to car races (my brother Thomas and my son Blake race) Which causes this moma to have nightmares! On weekends everyone likes to go to the river and ride the four wheelers.

My most favorite thing to do is sit at home with my sweetie and watch tv and just hang out together. I usually write my pen pals or work in a journal during this time. Lately I've enjoyed working puzzles such as cross words and Sudoku.

Favorite Crafts

Making homemade envelopes, I have found that I enjoy sending and recieving these envies.

Making small quilts for gifts.

Journaling ( I like to write but can't draw anything)

Simple crafts (would love for you to share some ideals on fast and easy crafts)

I like the fast and easy crafts so I can see the results super fast!!

Favorite Books

One of my favorite authors is Debbie Macomber.

Romance books! (except I don't really like the historical romance)

Have been reading some sci fi books as well.

Survival books are something I can't seem to get enough of lately!

Favorite Television

Project Runway

Top Chef

Total Diva's

WWE wrestling

The Chew

My five wives

I  dvr most of my shows and watch them when Luther is gone.

Favorite Music

Brett Michaels

Kid Rock

Tim McGraw

Faith Hill

George Strait

Adele

Pink

Blake Shelton

Comment: Thank you so much for the journal and the goodies! White chocolate hot chocolate is my favorite but it's been so long since I've had it! :) I always enjoy hearing updates on you and your family and the journal you used is so cute! I hope 2016 is much kinder to y'all then 2015!! <3 I wasn't so fond of the journal I used- it was so hard to work in! If/when we do another swap I'll definitely pick a book that's better to work in!

I am so sorry! I updated my profile

Merimax on May 28, 2014:

Hi! Your blog is really nice! You seem to be very creative and crafty and take up many journalling projects through Swap bot. I especially like the 4 Things lists. I guess writing them down on the blog makes one more accountable to get things done. Keep on blogging!
