Birthday May 21st
Anniversary July 4th
My life has been blessed with a husband who puts up with me and my constant stresses. Between us we have his daughter (22) and my son (28), DIL and two cool grandsons (Peyton 8, Hudson 4) And a GRANDDAUGHTER Piper Quinn, almost 3 months old! I am a total beach bum! I have three crazy dogs/kids too. Isabella the Australian Shepard is 14 and Lily (Black Lab is 4). Harley, our Chocolate Lab is almost 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 guess I am still a bit of a newlywed, only married a year and a half. We bought an older house 2 1/2 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 enjoyed working 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!
