Okay, now that I have everyone's attention, I guess I should say a little something about me. roflol Actually, I didn't clue in that I should do this until now and apologize for taking so long. :-)
When I opened my EMail and saw that I had been chosen as MOM, I got so excited that I could hardly sit still. I've been in a bit of a daize and weepy ever since. I feel so honoured to have been chosen and am loving all of the attention. Thank you so very much for choosing me.
I am in a Long Term Relationship and we share five kids between us. DH has a son and daughter, with three kids between them. I have two sons and a daughter, with 8 kids between them. My daughter is the middle child.
I have always enjoyed doing crafts! Macrame, knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting, gardening, and have tried my hand at sketching. Handcrafts, which include woodwork, folkart, and photo album covers are also in my list of things that I've done. There are likely more things but I just can't think of them right now, other than reading, watching movies, playing on the computer and being with my dog, Tok (pronouced Toke).
I love to write and actually used to do freelance work for a local newspaper before it was sold. The area that I live in is quite diverse with the types of farming that is done. I was so interested in learning about the different types of exotic animals and their care, that when the owner of the paper asked me to write profiles, I was delighted. Elk, Bison, Emu, and Pot Belly Pigs are just a few of the topics that were covered under my byline.
I have also, written a few short children's stories, but don't have the courage to submit them to a publisher. Perhaps I can build my self-esteem a little while a member of the ScrapGirls Club. This is definately a place that is filled with supportive, thoughtful and kind people.
Since I've joined ScrapGirls, I haven't done much else but play with PSP and roam around the site. I know I will get back on an even keel, but not this month. lol Thankyou everyone for your kind support. It is definately heartfelt by me. Where's that kleenex?
Here's a link for one of the more recent LO's that I've done for the Black and White challenge. It's of my youngest son's wedding photo and titled, Derek and Amanda
