Birthday May 21st
Anniversary July 4th
I'm blessed with a husband who puts up with my stresses. Between us we have his daughter (27) and my son (33), DIL and two cool grandsons (Peyton 13, Hudson 9) And a GRANDDAUGHTER Piper Quinn, 5 years old! Kristen has a 2.5 year old son, Carsen, and almost 1 year old daughter, Charlotte Rae. I am a complete beach bum! I have two crazy dogs. Lily (Black Lab is 9). Harley, our Chocolate Lab is 7. And there is Bella, my crafty cat who does not know she is a cat! I love to read (James Patterson), 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 newlywed. We bought an older house 5 years ago and will always have a project to work. One room at a time. Scrapping is my therapy. I am working on numerous projects, all gifts for everybody else! Mostly I complete 12x12 Creative Memory books. Current projects: Hudson's album, the new baby's 1st year, and miscellaneous pages! Oh and 3 12x12 recipe books. Peyton plays basketball and plays guitar, Hudson wrestles and takes karate, likes horse so I need to get some sports supplies and start those!
I have started doing 4 day crops in neighboring states. It is so much fun and I love meeting new people!
