About Me

I am a country girl living in the bigger cities now since I was 16. So like A Little Bit Country A little bit Diva. I still enjoy all things I learned growing up with my mom, 2 aunts and a grandmother to raise me. I had a alot of influence from them both in cooking, and in fashion as they all sewed and made a lot of their clothes, and all my pretty dresses, “until I was about 15″ when I wanted store bought dresses, but then a sister in law helped make things that were in my age range and for school dances and helped to accessorize them with high heels and jewelry.

From being around all the sewing I learned how myself and started making my own things, then simple, like sleepwear and casual, bags and crafts. But later on after having kids I made alot of clothes for my kids over the years including coats and jeans. The teachings from my family in sewing was instilled forever. But now I love creating jewelry and is an off and on hobby along with crafts.

I have working on the internet since 1991 but did not really get into the blogging scene until 2009. I love to share creative ideas, crafts, tutorials, suggestions, recipes and for guest bloggers to do the same. I enjoy writing about products, human interest stories, offer bloggers a platform for sharing their blogs to help them with exposure and best of all meeting new friends. “Oh! My Heartsie Girl” is where I review new company products and write reviews, share recipes, offer events, weekly memes, writing and sharing tutorials and enjoy meeting new bloggers. I also love gardening and my favorite is baking, cooking and trying new recipes to share with family and friends. Oh My Heartsie Girl is all about being frugal, sharing ideas, recipes, gardening, product reviews that are home related, events, giveaways and contests and the newest about creating art, such as scrapbooking, journaling, handmade cards, etc. The second is becoming my favorite, it is all about fashion and that has always been one of my passions. Whether its about hair, shoes, clothes, jewelry, accessories, purses, I love them all and this is what “Live Laugh Love To Shop Blog” is all about. A way to express what I like in the way of colors and styles. I love Pinterest now and Polyvore also, as it is a way to create fun boards for me the talk about and share.

On Live Laugh Love To Shop, I offer product reviews that are related to fashion, events, contests and giveaways.I have really found that blogging is such a rewarding experience and I have met so many wonderful friends while visiting other blogs. It has also given me the opportunity to create a niche for each blog, which took a while.

Favorite Music

My favorite music to listen to is country and on occasion classical.

Favorite Books

When I have time my favorite author is Nora Roberts. I love romance novels and reading about health.

Favorite Television

I dont watch a lot of TV but when I do, some of my favorite shows currently are The Good Wife, Mentalist, Chicago Fire, Rachel Ray, Voice, or any cooking show that happens to be on when I am waiting for an appointment.

Favorite Crafts

I like all kinds of crafts and DIY projects, i.e. sewing, making jewelry and love trying new ones, my new favorite is paper arts, creating journals handmade flowers of paper and fabric and scrapbooking.


I love to travel, my last major trip was in 2012 when we went to China for 10 days. We may have the opportunity to go again this year in April.

Favorite foods/drink

I love trying new tea, my favorites are something flavored, like with bits of fruits, orange spice, cranberry, but green and a lemon flavor are great too.

Comment: I received the swap in the mail yesterday, yay! The card was well done. In the future, Karren, please communicate with your partners. Your swap was sent three days late, and although you read the PM I sent you there was no reply. You definitely create beautiful work, as I have looked at your blog, but Swap-Bot is about communication, honesty, and keeping commitments as well. Take care and hope to see you around the site some more!
Comment: Thank you for the nice ATC, love the colors!
