Shannon's-All About Me!

Our family Christmas 2010

Everytime I visit blogs, I wonder about the people who write them.  It's such a bonus when they have a little biography.  It puts a person with their "craft".  I like that.

Jill and I thought you may want to learn a little about us, so here goes.

I am a mother.  I have two beautiful daughters, Mariella (2) and GraciAnn (4).  They are the best thing I've ever done!

GraciAnn's a big sister!

One of my favorite pictures of the girls. 

I love to dress them in matching outfits! Mariella has the sunglasses too. They just wouldn't stay on her face.

Bath time!

I am a wife.  I have been married for seven years.  My husband, John, is truly my soulmate and my best friend.  He is a home remodeler and is very crafty himself.  He'd tell you that he's the best thing I've ever done and I guess he's kind of right.  Without him, I wouldn't have those girls.

My sweet husband, John

I am a daughter. My parents have always been my great support system and are the best Grandparents EVER!  Just ask my girls.

I am a sister. I have a brother who is one of my best friends.  He was there when both of my girls were born. My daughters are his biggest fans!

I am a friend.  I have so many wonderful friends.  I am so lucky.  I know it! I always try to be the best friend I can be.  Unfortunately, I stay so busy with life, I don't always give my friends the attention they deserve.

My best friend from highschool, Robin

Robin's sister Mandy.  She's always been like a sister to me!
My dear friend, Amy

Jessica and Jayce, Jamie and Ryan, and Mariella and me!
***There are many dear friends I don't have pictures of on my computer.  That will change and I'll share them with you soon.  My friends are very important to me! ***

I am a stay at home mom and I have never been so busy or loved a job so much!

I am a teacher.  Right now my students are my children.  But, before I became a "Stay at Home Mom" I taught for fifteen years. One day, I'll be teaching others' children again.

I am one of the few "True Floridians".  I was born and raised in FL.  The first time I moved away was when I went to college for a year in North Carolina. I also spent 4 months of my senior year of college doing an internship in England. My home base was FL until 7 years ago when my husband got a promotion to the Atlanta area. He said we would be here for three years.  Ha!  I don't see us going anywhere anytime soon.  I'm okay with that.  I like having seasons, none of which are too harsh.  I like my friends, most of which I met through my children.  I like my daughter's school.  I like our doctors.  It's a great place. I left my family and many friends in FL.  I miss them.  I like that I can drive and see them in a day.  I wish we were closer; but, I'm pretty positive I never want to live in Florida again. It's hot!

I am a crafter.  Or at least I try to be.  This blog is a place for me to share all my creative crafting, copy crafting, and craft fails that are sure to happen. I haven't always been crafty.  I guess it all started when a friend of mine got me into stamping about 15 years ago.  My stamping came to a screeching hault when I got married and had kids.  Thanks to my crafty friends and supportive husband, I'm back in it and I'm doing my best!

I am eager to share my ideas, get ideas from others, and form new friendships in blogland!
