I am into the shabby chic vintage type of stuff. Yard sales, thrift shops and swap meets are my kind of places. I also like to decorate all year round with Santas. I have a large Santa collection. Unfortunately, DH doesn't see it the same way, so only a few are out now, the rest have been banished to the garage since we moved in together a few years ago.

I'm : in search of my artistic side, learning to blog, preserving old things that were loved by someone else, documenting my days for my children, baking bread from scratch, keeping a journal and not caring if I miss a day, scared to open my new sewing machine because I will spend even more time crafting, I am learning to let go of things that weigh me down, Loving my family for supporting my pre mid life crisis in wanting to be creative, I am loving paper...I must create something that includes paper everyday, and I just discovered I love roses, cats and painting.
