About Me

Hi, I am Connie,I am a 50 ish wife and mother. I have been married for 23 years and have a wonderful daughter! I have an identical twin( and yes her name is Bonnie!!) Mom had to come up with names quickly, they were expecting a baby boy!! Surprise!!!!. I think that is where I have received my love of surprises. The whole swapping thing was new to me, but I have quickly become addicted too it. I am also a licensed Optician for 31 years, A Girl Scout leader for 11 years. But now that I have found this site, I do believe the craft side of me is coming back out. 04/21/10 We have a new addition to the family!! A 6 week old schnoodle puppy. Her name is Evie. I lost my beloved Sandy on 02/27/10. But the house was empty without a fur baby running around, so in comes Evie. She is full speed, I was use to a 12 year old, and now this. I have my hands full, but I'm loving every minute.

I LOVE Christmas! The decorations, the lights, the music ( I hum X-mas songs all year) the yummy smells, the Christmas cards, shows, and all the wonderful, and happy spirit of the season. I see more smiles and cheerful looks during this time of year than any other time. Christmas

Oct. 2010: I have started a new hobby. Yea!! I bought a new camera and several different lenses, and driving everyone around me crazy taking photos.. It has been great fun going on long drives and seeing new places, so I can get different shots...Sept 2015- Still loving my Photography!.. I got my Christmas present early this year from the DH, a new full frame camera!! I am one happy girl!!!...
