Ultimate Blog Party 2012!

Susan and Janice over at 5 Minutes for Mom are hosting the Ultimate Blog Party 2012. There is a chance to win one of many, many prizes! All you have to do to join the party is write a post about your blog and about yourself. Not to mention you can browse through loads of links to other blogs with a variety of categories.

So if you would like to join the party head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom and sign up for their party. But you better hurry, the party ends on April 20th!

The best way to describe me is I love to craft. It doesn't really matter what kind of craft. I just like to make things. One of the sayings that I found on Pinterest, which will eventually be a project for some wall art in my craft room is "I just want to make beautiful things...even if nobody else cares". You can find the link to my Pinterest pin HERE.

I enjoy a variety of crafts including but not limited to; card making, scrapbooking, jewelry making, cross stitch, stained glass, fused glass, sewing, crochet, and mosaic. I am working on learning how to knit and how to quilt. My craft room is a constant work in progress as I find better or different ways to store my ridiculous collection of crafting supplies. I also sell Stampin' Up products and use them almost exclusively in my paper crafts.


During the work day I'm a designer at a local manufacturing company. I really feel that my job has helped me think about things differently so I can properly plan and execute my projects. Not that all of my projects are a success, but at least I thought it through before starting, right?

I have been happily married for 6-1/2 years to my wonderful husband Bill. We live in a 1950's home that is one big DIY project in itself. So between working, chores, and working on the house I wish I had more time to spend in my craft room to create more beautiful things to share with you. The picture above is from 2009 on our first cruise on the Disney Magic. We love going on the Disney Cruise vacations, and will be taking our third Disney Cruise vacation in about 5 weeks on the Disney Fantasy!

My blog started out and continues to be a place for me to share the things I've made and some info about how I made them so if someone else happens to want to create the same project than maybe I've helped them out a little bit. Bloging is a bit of work but I like to share what I've made with the world. Sometimes I'm not sure if anyone is reading it, but it's like my crafting journal so I just keep on posting my creations. That is all I can think of right now. If you have any random questions for me I would be happy to answer! Just leave them in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by!
