I am not a housewife. If the Lord allowed... I would be in a heartbeat! I am a Christ follower. Jesus saved me at the young age of 6. I wanted the snack (communion) that everyone else got when they passed the plate at church. When my mom wouldn't let me have it, I wanted to know more. I had the attitude of "What does it take to get the snack? Oh, that's it and I get to go to heaven? Sign me up!" I believe with my whole heart that Jesus saved me on that day. When I was 14 I rededicated my life to serving Jesus, and here I am today. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Sorry ladies--but I have the best husband in the world. I am a teacher. My husband and I have a dog named Paco. One day (far in the future) we will have children. We are in a really cool young married small group. All of my friends are either getting married or having babies.
In the Spring of 2012, I decided it would be a good idea for me to get a sewing machine. I am not sure why I thought that would be a good idea, I didn't know the first thing about sewing. To be honest, when the sewing machine came in the mail and I opened it, I was disappointed that the needle wasn't already in the machine and I had to google what a bobbin was. I'm talking CLUELESS! Everything that I have done since has either been self taught or piggy-backing off someone else's idea. My sister-in-law has been very helpful, so has Holly in getting me started. Who knew what interfacing was anyway? Was it really needed? I mean, come on!
The crafting part of me has mainly come because when we first got married, I had an entire apartment to decorate and I couldn't justify spending $50 on a cheap printed canvas at Target. Thus the "Do-it-yourself" came about. I like knowing that I had a hand in the nice things we have. Now, don't get me wrong...if there is something that I come across that I like, I will buy it. But most of the time, I think to myself "I like that, but I would change this or that and I could have fun doing it." And now that we are in a house, I can't help it. It's too much fun!
I don't do anything "by the book." Hey, no one ever gave me that book anyway... and I'm dyslexic. I can guarantee that you will find spelling and grammar errors in my blogs. If you don't, I probably didn't write it. I hope that doesn't sway you from reading anyway. I tell my students that you are suppose to know what I mean, not what I say. Same thing goes for you!
I think that about sums me up. If I missed anything... feel free to leave a comment!
