All About lil o' Me

Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

Same supplies, different outcome everytime!

For the past few past Fridays and Mondays Ive been teaching an elective for my daughter and her friends.  It been a ton of fun and it just amazes me how you give 10 people the exact same pieces to work with and they each come up with something different and unique.  I showed them a sample, showed them a couple techniques, and gave them all the same supplies. I didn't think that they'd cut into the supplies that I gave them, but they did. I didn't think they'd NOT use some of the things I gave them. I didn't think they'd request colors that didn't "match", but they did all these things. Each person goes home with something different, unique, and wonderful!  It is fun and I can't wait to see what their paper crafts look like as the year goes on. We'll be meeting for 20 classes to scrapbook and make cards all the while I'll be teaching different techniques and such.   It's gonna be a great year!
