About Me

"The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest."

I will never forget the very first thing I ever sewed, it was a teal, purple and black square pillow in the 7th grade. After that was a basic quilt my freshman year in high school and then I didn't sew again until I was almost 20 years old in 2000. It was just a small blanket for my daughter, then I made a slipcover for the couch and a dress for my daughter. Then I  did not sew anything again until early 2012, if you can believe that.

Now I am addicted to my sewing machine, fabric, patterns, etc.

I am by no means an expert and I can't even really call myself "experienced", yet I manage to follow complicated patterns with ease. I want my friends and family who say "Oh I wish I could do that" to know that they can do it. I want you to know that you can do it too.

Believe me: anything I can do, you can probably do better!

Anyway, a little bit about me:

My husband and I have been married since September 2008 and we have four amazing children, three girls and a boy, though not in that order. I absolutely love being a mother and while I never planned to have four children, I certainly wouldn't change it. They are my everything and I strive everyday to be the best parent I can possibly be.

I enjoy: Reading. Writing. Sewing. Crocheting. Scrapbooking. Cardmaking. Blogging. Cadbury Creme Eggs. Web Design. CSS. Being a Mother. Being a Friend. Talking on the Phone. Reading Blogs.

I am: Mother. Sister. Friend. Cousin. Daughter. Wife. Niece. Aunt. Former Girl Scout Leader. Former School Library Volunteer.

Music I Love: The Beatles. John Lennon. Eminem. Daughtry. Billy Ray Cyrus. Jon Bon Jovi. Apocalyptica. Three Days Grace. Lady Gaga. Okay… I like everything. Oldies included.

We currently live in North Conway, NH. We spent the last six years (2009-2014) in Fort Bragg, North Carolina where my husband was stationed while he was in the Army.
