This post is for Ann.
She is my stocking swap partner this year and this is my mini introductory to help her get to know me better. :)
This is going to be a bit jumbled and random as I will type what pops into my head as I go along. lol
Where to start? LOL
I've been married for 20 years, have a 19 yo. son (Alex) and a son that turns 14 on Dec. 15th. (Caleb).
I'm a SAHM.
I'm 34 years old --until Jan. 1st (sigh)
I don't sleep-much. I love scrapbooking.
I also make jewelry and have a little online shop: http://www.kristiegk.etsy.com
Sometimes I like to crochet afghans and scarves during the winter months. It's the only time I can stand to have a "growing" blanket on me because I am super hot natured.
I drink coffee about every other day. Collect really old looking unusual wicker baskets and gourds.
My house is in the process of being decorated in all primitive and grubby/grungy style. I find that is what makes me happiest. I collect gingerbread men for Christmastime. My favorite scents are vanilla and especially cinnamon!!! YUM.
I absolutely LOVE Peggy's goat milk lotions and soaps. Right now I am totally loving her caramel lotion. -Hi Peggy!- :)
On the complete opposite side of the spectrum, I'm a bit of a girly- girl. I like my make-up and pretty hair. Although I'm not finicky about my clothes. LOL I like a plain T shirt just fine. LOL
I LOVE thrift stores SO much.
Some people might call me a pessimist, but I think of myself more as a realist.
For three weeks of every month I am the mother and the father at my house.
My husbands job keeps him away a lot. He is a supervisor for a company based out of Knoxville and has to travel all over the country. I don't mind it too much. I think it has helped me be more confident in myself in a lot of ways.
I used to spend too much time on the internet. Now I spend maybe half hour a day. lol
I think that's all for now. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
And last, here is a picture of me and my little crew. :)
