First off I would like to thank you for taking the time to look at our blog and hope you find that this is something you will want to follow!! We have so many crafts, hobbies and so much more that we want to share with you!! And we both look forward to hearing from all of our readers and what they want to see from us as well!

A Little About Me

I am a mother of two boys and a wife to an amazing husband! I work for the local school district so during the school year, I will most likely be less active but the summer months allow me to dedicate more time to this blog! 

As for my crafting, my husband actually complains that I have 'too many hobbies' but its what I love to do. I love to crochet but I also love to scrapbook and make cards. I run a crochet store through and a Facebook page just for my handmade crochet items. Please feel free to check it out at Most my items revolve around my other favorite hobby!

I love photography!! Most of my crochet items are for photography props but love to make anything my hook allows me to! I'm hoping to be a registered photography business within a year and I believe photography can be an art in itself. I love to capture any special moments the camera will allow me to see!

Learning new crafts and being creative with the supplies I have is always a fun challenge to me! My mother and I have crafted together for several years together and always loved to find challenges for each other. So when Stephanie came to me with the opportunity of creating a crafting blog, I jumped at the chance. This is one of her many great ideas and I'm honored to be a part of it.

Outside of my crafting world, I love to spend time outdoors. There is a family cabin that my family and I love to spend time at no matter what season. In the warmer months, I love to sit out in the backyard while my children play and crochet! And I love crafting with the oldest one and making homemade games (the younger boy is only one so I haven't really done any crafts with him yet.) As this blog ages, I will be sharing the numerous things my children and I love to do together, including our fun handmade games!

Again, we encourage you to not just be a reader but also to challenge us!! Tell us what you want to see, tell us what you want to learn.... we'll try to become the 'crafting, hobby and so much more' blog that you can't wait to see what comes from us next!

Until next craft....

I am a proud wife and mother of one very sweet little boy. I stay at home with our little one until he starts school in fall of 2012.  Most of my time is managed trying to take care of the house, our son, school, and CRAFTING. During the summer months we live for the outdoors. I love being able to go to the beach and clear my head by taking a ball of yarn and a crochet hook and just watch the waves come in. My husband and I love to travel to the different state park systems within our state. Wisconsin has some beautiful land if you can get out of the city and head north or west. A couple of years ago I became very sick and disabled and don’t have to the option of going out a lot. This is when crafting for me became more than just a hobby. This is my way of sharing with the world and being able to meet new people and new friends. I will never let what happens with my health stop me from being me and letting me be the best mom and wife I know I can be.

I originally started writing or another blog called Smalltown Dreamz, However I knew 2 heads were better than one. I asked Crystal to start writing with me and a few month later here we are. We actually went to middle school together and got reacquainted on Facebook while posting about nothing else other then crafts and kids. I am very much looking forward to working with her and collaborating to bring you some awesome Craft and Gift Ideas.

Over the past couple years I have learned how to recycle everything and to budget the pennies to get myself my supplies. I have to give a huge thank you to so many of my family members that helped get me started. Every Birthday and Christmas I always put on my Christmas list in big bold letters ***NEED CRAFTING SUPPLIES*** this seems to work because every year I get more supplies to work with. My husband does surprise me here and there with some special items he knows that I really want or would like. He loves garage sale time. This is one other time of the year where I usually get the chance to stock up on a few things. 

I just love to learn new and old projects. Every week I try to sit down with my son and work on a project with him. Then the rest of my time is spent working on projects for the house, gifts for others, or just for fun. I love to up cycle everything. There is so much you can do with an empty containers, bottles and boxes. During Christmas of 2011 my husband bought me my first sewing machine. Ever since we took it out of the box I have been hooked. With this in mind I have 2 new loves and I can’t wait to start building up my stock pile on Fabric and Buttons. I never in my 25 years of crafting had anyone that was really into sewing or quilting. My late Grandmother but she passed when I was younger and wasn't able to learn from her. The person that actually taught me how to sew was my husband. He showed me the few basic steps and I took it from there. I started looking at tutorials and watching YouTube Videos on the basics of sewing and the rest I have been figuring out by trial and error. I hope to have my first quilt done by April 2012 to share and show everyone.

I hope that you will enjoy everything you find on this blog and please if you have any questions you can always contact us at I look forward to meeting new people and hearing your stories. With the little one starting school this next year I know I will have tons more time for crafting and I have already started making a list.

 I hope you comeback to check out what we are doing. Have a great day and god bless.
