About Me

I am a 34 year old happily married mother of 2. Savannah is 9 and Daxton is 4 years old. I quit my job selling real estate to stay home with my kids. I am going back to school to teach Elementary school but ended up getting sick and am now pretty much disabled. I love to knit, paper craft, alter, art journal, make ATCs, read, cook, play games, and hang out with my kids & hubbie!I have a wonderfull Collie named Lady who is almost 70lbs (believe it or not, she is a lap dog), a mixed breed rescue named Boomer, a bunny named LuLu, and a cat named Allie. I am constantly art journaling or altering something. I love shabby chic and vintage. ATCs, hat pins, and swivel charms are new for me. I love curling up by the fire reading horror novels. Knitting every night while I watch my fav shows. Sipping coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. I love candy, especially turtles. I like playing board games, we try to have a game night once a week. Anything that is pampering, like bath stuff, pajamas, slippers, make-up, hair stuff, jewelry, etc...are always wonderfull! My main passion is my family! They are the world to me! I have a blog but have not posted on it for a while. I hope to post soon. You can also check out my mom's. There is a link. We have the same hobbies and she talks about me and my wee ones sometimes.

Favorite Music

Everything except heavy metal,rap, and elevator music. Though my husband, being the heavy rock lover he is, is trying to change this!

Favorite Movies

I love scarry movies!! All the lights out, fire place going, and hiding under my big blanket!!! I also love comedy and cheesy girl movies.

Favorite Television

CSI, Jericho, Lost, Without a Trace, Vanished, Cold Case, Fringe, Eleventh hour, Life on Mars, Ghost Whisperer, and many others. Don't you just love TIVO!!!!

Favorite Crafts

I have recently become obsessed with ATCs, art journaling, and swivel charms. I love to sew. I also love to alter things, make tags, embellishments, etc. Knitting, Cooking, Sweepstaking, scrapbooking, and crafts with my daughter.

Things I like

I love shabby chic, prima flowers, charms, graphic 45, pretty much anything that can be used to alter, make tags, etc.

I love art journaling so any art supplies are always fab.

Just starting my copic collection.

Beads and charms are great because I am starting to make hat pins and swivel charms for minis and tags.

Anything having to do with sewing. I love the coordinating fabrics. I am a new sewer so I do not have much of anything. Anything would be appreciated.

Yarn - especially sock yarn. I prefer LYS quality yarn (non-acrylic). I like knit pics, addi, and bamboo double point needle.

Any knitting notions or knitting bags.

Books - I usually read fiction horror or mystery.

Scrapbooking - I love to make things and love all kinds or scrapbooking items. I am especially loving making mini books and altering things.

Cooking- I love to cook and neat kitchen gadgets or cookbooks are always great.

Office supplies - I am a nut about notebooks, pens, paper, neat folders and office do-dads.

Craft supplies - I love paint, glitter glue, gel pens, craft kits and any other craft supplies.

Bath and beauty- Any kind of bath stuff is awesome.

Candles - I love almost all smells but especially food smells like peppermint, cookies, gingerbread, etc..

Fabric- I have just started sewing cute outfits for my 7 year old daughter. She has informed me that the fabric must be for "big girls"! LOL

I love knitting and scrapbooking books and magazines.

I love games of all kinds. We play board games, wii, and ds. I also love puzzle books.

I love to recieve handmade items. It is so special when someone takes the time out to express themselves or make something special for someone else.

I love pretty much all colors but I love hot pink, black, teal, purple, grey, and white.

I love animals so I do not mind if you have pets.

I LOVE Twilight. I am just starting book four and am looking forward to seeing the movie.

Journals- I am just about to start journaling and would love blank ones or ones you created for inspiration.

Whimsy jars- I have never seen one and would love to.

Things I don't like

Really heavy flower scents. However, I do like gardenia and lavender.

I am really not into romance books or war books.

I am not really into the country, cowboy, western, disney characters, or very flowery stuff for my home.

I do not have any allergies.

I don,t really like the older scrap booking stickers.


My daughter Savy is 9. She loves to do crafts....All the time. She loves paint, glue, beads, ribbons, paper, colored pencils, markers, glitter glue, pretty much anything and everything craft related. She thinks she is a "big girl" so she hates anything disney, barbie, pricess, etc.. She wants to be a doctor, or a teacher so anything like bandages, office supplies, etc.. She loves kid movies with real people in them like WinDixie, Matilda, Nims Island, etc.. She also loves Hanna Montana.

Gogo rated for Yarn Junkies II - Month 10 - PINK on Dec 18, 2008
Comment: The package of goodies was delightful. I am especially excited about the Jojoland yarn in that gorgeous color! Can't wait to make something splendiferous out of it. I have wanted to try Jojoland for a long time and now the chance has arrived, thanks to you, Amanda! I like scary movies, too, and my grandfather (and uncle and a cousin) all got the first name Braxton...very similar to your "Daxton"! Small world. Many many thanks and if I could, you would get multiple stars. Well, I have done it anyway. They are just virtual. Have a great holiday season! Dehbi (Gogo)
Response: I am soo glad you like it! I knit some socks out of Jojoland and love them. I hope your holidays were fab! Looking forward to the purple swap.
