But...I prefer to use water color pencils and digis rather than markers and stamped images..
What else have I done crafty-wise?
I use Modge Podge when needed. I can use a hot glue gun...I use to make all my daughter's hairbows. I've painted wood shelves and stenciled on it for my DD's room. I needlepoint.crosstitch a little. I do have a sewing machine and have yet to use it on paper projects.
* Smashbooks (yes, I know it is kinda altering something...but to me it is more journaling and just making a book with a theme of cool stuff you like)
* 12x12 double page layouts to get caught up on my scrapbooking.
I'm a Christian, my family ALWAYS comes first in any life decisions I consider. I'm very family oriented and in my spare time I'm a PTA Mom and Homeroom Mom. I love to be involved in my children's activities and school. I like to cook and enjoy having either my Parents' or my In-laws over for dinner.
I graduated from Oklahoma State (Go Pokes) in 1988 with a degree in Marketing and a minor in Accounting. I actually was going to major in Marketing but when I got to my Junior year, discovered I made a mistake. I'm a people person and it just wasn't me. So, I switched my major.
While single I had a job for 3 yrs selling advertising for a nationally distributed fishing magazine. (yes a primarily male industry and I learned sooooo much about all that testosterone LOL) I traveled some with that and didn't date much. Then, had a job in the advertising/promotional products industry where I was an Assistant Sales Mgr. Again, I traveled a lot doing trade shows. Some of my favorite places to visit were Chicago, Annaheim, CA, Minneapolis and Seattle.
I was fixed up on a blind date with my hubbie in 2006. We discovered we knew a lot of the same people at OSU. In fact...one guy who I studied with and did a lot of my Marketing projects with was one of my husband's roommates (there were 3 roommates and I never knew my hubbie was one of them)
In Feb 2007 he proposed and we got married 3 months later in June. Only reason for that was I didn't want a big wedding and to plan a wedding for a year and just wanted to elope. Our Parent's persuaded us not to and offered to help us with all the plans if we would just do a simple family wedding at my In-laws beautiful and roomy house. So, that is what we did.
2001 came our DD and then in 2008 at the age of 41, had my little man.
