About Me

I am a stay at home mom of 2 wonderful boys. My husband is a truck driver. I love to crochet, and do crafts with my kids and for gifts. Currently I am fostering for a local shelter. So far have fostered 7 dogs. We adopted the first one and the others have both found homes! I love dogs! I have a c0ckatiel named Gemini, and some fish.

I name all my pets after either the zodiac signs or mythological Gods and Goddesses.

  • I will rate a 5 if I receive something no matter if it's something I like or not, as long as it meets the requirements of the swap.

  • I will give hearts for anyone who does more then what is required.

Favorite Crafts

  • Crocheting is my number one favorite craft.
  • I am also learning to knit, tat, and enjoy working with plastic canvas.
  • I like to make homemade ornaments for Christmas, and usually am working on something at every free moment in my day.

  • If you are my partner and crochet and want to send something extra, please consider a granny square 7x7 in size, any color.

I really need to get a Cricut soon. Cutting shapes out by hand takes so long and my fingers get crampy. And buying little embellishments all the time, I probably could have paid for a Cricut by now, lol.

Does anyone have any suggestions on which Cricut is better or that you prefer or even another brand??

I want an embosser too, any suggestions?
