About Me

Birthday May 21st
Anniversary July 4th

My life has been blessed with a husband who puts up with my constant stresses. Between us we have his daughter (23) and my son (28), DIL and two cool grandsons (Peyton 9, Hudson 5) And a GRANDDAUGHTER Piper Quinn, 8 months old! I am a total beach bum! I have three crazy dogs. Isabella the Australian Shepard is 14 and Lily (Black Lab is 4). Harley, our Chocolate Lab is 2. She is the biggest cuddler!! I love to read (James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell), swim, garden, cook and watch my husband and daughter race their micro sprint cars on weekends (April-October). I'd travel anywhere if it were in my budget! I am still a bit of a newlywed, only married 2 years. We bought an older house 3 years ago and will always have a project to work on there. One room at a time. Right now its my scrap room. Scrapping is my therapy, but I just cannot find enough time to do it; when I do, I am working on numerous projects, all gifts for everybody else! Mostly I complete 12x12 Creative Memory books, but worked on a few distressed chipboard mini albums a while ago. I have even started doing a few recipe books. Current projects: my daughter-in-law's wedding album, Hudson's album, dd's first year race car album and my wedding album! Oh and 3 12x12 recipe books. Now that Piper has arrived, I am starting her album so I can complete it as she grows!
