About Me

My photo

I am the wife to a wonderful and dedicated man. He has taken on the biggest role a man could step into and became a wonderful father to my children. We have survived a very long deployment, which I feel has made our family stronger and able to communicate better. I have 4 children ages 21, 18,16 and 13. With only 2 boys left at home, we spend most of our time watching football, karate, hiking and exploring.  I have recently learned how to crochet and have been busily making photo props and fun items for friends' newborn babies.

I love taking pictures and started out taking fun photos of the kids, playing with some editing and this has now expanded to taking pictures for others.

I am a Scentsy consultant and love to bless others with my business. I look forward to sharing our life with you and hope that you enjoy sharing it with us. We may have a crazy life sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I have been so slack about making my cards and finally have gotten back down into my office to get started on my holiday cards. I used Many Thanks from Stampin' Up to do the wood background and wheat bundle. The bundle was done with copper embossing powder and popped up with dimensionals. I then used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the background on the green paper, and finished it off with chocolate bakers twine. I hope you enjoy this card
