A Glimpse of the Artist

I always find it fascinating to see the artist behind the many different crafts that I come across. I think it makes it that much more special to get a glimpse of the actual person who creates those lovely pieces. So I have decided to dedicate a post to showing all of you (whoever reads this) who I am.



I never get tired of making my wreaths. I discover something different with each one. None of this would have been possible without the love and support from my husband. I have been married for three years (this month) to the most wonderful man in the world! It has gone by so fast but at the same time it feels as if I have known him forever. When I am near him, a smile or laugh is never very far away! He is truly my best friend and I am so thankful for him.



We have a yellow lab, Izzy, who is a year old and just as hyper as ever.



I own hundreds of books, but I feel like I don’t have enough time in the day to sit down and actually read. I am currently reading “The Historian” which is suspenseful and adventurous but I probably haven’t picked it up in weeks!




My favorite show on TV is Scrubs and since they play reruns of the older episodes I watch that show all the time – it is hilarious! And I can probably recite just about every episode from memory, but it never gets old!



I am a Texas girl through and through. I grew up on a farm (cows, horses, ducks, pigs, chickens - the whole shebang!) and then my family moved into the city when I was nine. My husband and I bought some land out in the country about a year ago and we are planning to move back hopefully within the next year. I love the peace and quiet that comes with living in the country and I am so very excited to be building our dream house!




I will now end this rant (if anyone is even still reading) with my favorite quote of all time by William Purkey:
Dance like no one is watching, Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like no one is listening, Live like it's heaven on earth.
