I am so excited to be part of SGD's first evah blog hop! I am following your first stop over at the SGD blog with our Head Diva- Sheila. Her layout is soooo her.. Love it! Now this stop is all about me! It's a nice feeling because I am usually behind the camera or scrapbooking my kids or family. In fact I had to take off the pics I had on here of my hubby and kids- that's how hard it was to focus on 'me'. But to help be a better mother, wife, friend, etc we need to focus on ourselves from time to time and remember who we are and help our children feel confident to discover and be proud of who they are.
*updated to include more about me- I forgot this step hee hee* I came back to add more about me than just what is on my page. So funny cause this is sooo just like me. hee hee. So- my page is typical of me- scattered and chaotic. All over the place- just like my personality. I will admit that I am a 'larger than life' personality and I adore making people laugh. Which can frequently lead me to be the centre of attention- which I am sooo fine with.
Yep- I am a Drama Mama.
I am cheeky and quick to laugh which masks a soft hearted interior. I care deeply about people and animals and can't even watch the news because I get so depressed over a sad story and want to save the world.
The most important part of who I am is a Mother. I have wanted to be a mom since I was a teenager and craved children in my life. I was blessed at the age of 25 with my first child and my second at 28 years of age. They are the best thing to have ever happened to me. I am also happily married to a man that is truly my best friend for the past 16 years.
I craft to keep sane. Seriously. It brings me such calmness and happiness with not only the whole creative process (which importantly includes shopping) but also when I share my creation with someone as a card or handmade item and see how happy it makes them. I mean- it is such an honour to have someone pull out a card you gave them years ago to show you they kept it. A gift that keeps giving!
Phew- just some quick deep thoughts to go with your Sunday morning coffee or tea lol! Your next stop on the 'me' train is the super fun and talented Anja. Click on her name to go to her blog and don't forget to leave a comment on each blog along the way to qualify to win some yummy blog candy.
