Hi! My name is Melissa. I have an amazing daughter, home, and man. I love life! I am a very creative, down to earth, think outside of the box type of lady! I have two kitty cats and a black lab. I believe laughter is a big key to a healty life. I am a Jill of all trades master of a few! My full time job is being a mom and my part time jobs are photography, framing and tupperware! I love being around people and just having a good time. I am not a big drinker nor do I smoke. I use to have pen pals before my daughter was born, but once she came about life got a bit busy. Now that I am in my big house I would love to enjoy going to the mail box agian! I prefer to have pen pals that are female. I am not looking for any romance, just good friends!
I have to say the number one enjoyable reads are from Nicholas Sparks! AMAZING writer!! I really enjoy insprational books as well. Reading is a joy that I don't make enough time for, but it would be nice to get a pen pal whom likes to read and maybe we can read a book and share our thoughts about it!
I love all kinds of music. Country is awesome. Soft rock is great. I love music that speaks to you. Good music that makes you want to dance is always good too!
I love comedy's! Drama's are awesome too, but I have to say a good action movie is great in our theater room!
I have a very creative side. I love to stamp, scrap book, cross stich, and do crafts with my daughter. We have paper mached things for school projects and we love to make stepping stones. We have a framing company and I love to be creative with our software and michines! I love stickers too! Writing a good letter and making it look cute with stickers is always fun!!
I have been doing photography since 2001. I love being able to capture photos and tell a story with them. To me, a photo just isn't a picture, but it is a memory captured for ever. In life as we grow old the only true thing we have is the memories of our life. I have been blessed with photographing for major dance and cheer competitions for the past 6 years and before that I captured the memories of babies. It is amazing to look back on the photos of my own daughter and see how much she has grown over the years. I believe that through my God given talent of photography, I am able to give people a way to hold on to a memory for a life time. My slogan for my business is, "The Vision of Now, is the Enlightment of Your Future." If you want to see what I do, check me out at www.thevisionphotography.com
The love of my life owns a memory framing company. He custom makes frames to preserve photos for people. His work is along the same lines of my work, and that capturing a memory and telling a story to be displayed so it can be talked about and remembered for many many years! If you need a custom frame for a life event such as a new baby, baptisim, children sports, graduation, wedding or anniversary check out the website at www.theframingplace.com
I forgot about listing what you like to swap.
I do not need any pens or makers, I have enough to supply my daughter until she is 15 and she is 10 now!
As I get better at this I am sure I will add more and more things.
I love tring new things so I am a really easy person to please. I love sirprizes tho! But if you are stumped just ask!
