About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Lucky Irish Birthday

One of the best things of March that I enjoy is St. Patrick's Day.  The day when everyone wears green to avoid getting pinched, eating corned beef (no cabbage for us), and of course Irish soda bread.  But one thing I do enjoy doing is making a St. Patrick Birthday card for a childhood friend that I've known since 1974.  She is 100% Irish and was born on St. Patty's Day.  Talk about Luck!  Happy Birthday to Colleen!
