WOW! Where to begin! I am a fun gal who loves to create, craft, and enjoy life. I was married at eighteen years old, stopped attending college to put my husband through. My husband graduated with his Nurse Anesthesia Degree in 2011. I had my first son the day  before I turned twenty one! What a great way to celebrate your twenty first birthday~! In the labor and delivery ward at the hospital! I now have three more fun and rumbuctious boys taking the total to 4! I would love to have a little girl running around some day! But the husband claims we are done. I enjoy staying at home with my boys and spending every waking moment with them! I am an artist and a crafter. I am a positive person by nature, I talk alot, and I can't say no! I was born and raised LDS, and I hold firm in my relgion and it's beliefs.

No Sew Grocery Tote

This is another craft option that I had available for my Fabulous Friday Craft Day at my church. It's easy to complete and up here in Washington where our county just put on a ban from single use bags (PLASTIC GROCERY BAGS) these are a hot commodity. I always forget mine in the car without fail so I load the groceries into the cart when I am getting them ....more
