Who am I? ‘Mom of three’ only begins to scratch the surface. First of all I love to make things. Anything crafty I can probably make with my hands. I realized at a young age that I was an artist. I even remember the moment in art class… I was probably 7 or 8 years old; we were drawing undersea pictures, and I said to myself “Wow, I’m really good at this.” But I hate doing the same thing over and over… I just get bored so quickly. So as I have grown older, I have used my creativity to try many different things, including cross-stitching, making 3-D models with plastic canvas, loom knitting and I recently began to crochet. While attending college, I dabbled in photography, ceramics, and really enjoyed painting.
I also love reading and learning. My favorite books are historical fiction, fantasy, and mysteries. I have a large collection of books, including a large array of vintage Nancy Drew Stories.
I am also very involved in my church and I absolutely love it. Besides my family, church is the most important thing to me.
That brings me to my family. I come from a large one, and I loved it. So I always knew I wanted to have several kids. So far I have three, ages 4, 3, and 1. As you can imagine, they keep me busy. They are beautiful, sweet children, but I have had some hard moments, especially when their curiosity gets the best of them. It can be hard to pursue my interests and teach and care for my kids, but those moments when I hold my kids close, my heart brimming with love for them makes all the struggles worth it.
So that’s all about me. I look forward to sharing ideas and family activities in the future!
