About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Mix and Mingle at the Party!

   This is part of the fun from Sherry's Blogiversary Party!  In an effort to get to know the other guests she asked us to answer a few questions about ourselves...

-What type of job do you have?  I am lucky enough to be a stay at home Mom.  I home school my girls and design jewelry for my Etsy shop in my spare time.  Actually, is there such a thing as spare time??
-Where do you live?  I live in Arkansas, but am originally from Virginia.
-Where do you do your crafts/art work?  I have a craft room but I prefer crafting in front of the TV when I stay up late.  I am quite the "night owl"!
-What is your favorite daytime beverage? I love iced tea with Splenda.
-What is your favorite dessert? I love my grandmother's Boston Cream Pie and Sweet Potato Pie.
-Do you watch Soap Operas and if you do what's your favorite? I don't watch Soap Operas but I do watch lots of reality TV.  Love "Survivor", "The Amazing Race", "The Mole".  With my kids I like to watch "Little Bear" and "Max and Ruby".:-)
-What's the last movie you saw in a movie theater? Wall-E- We loved it!

I haven't watched any of those reality shows. I always get behind on the reality shows and then just give up on them.

I have had Katie's cupcake done for a couple of weeks. I don't know how, but the bottom turned out bigger than the last one I made and the little cup doesn't fit in it right. I'll send it to you on Friday anyway. I think it'll be okay. The cup just helps it hold it's shape a little better.

Thanks for the "small talk" Lori!

Hi Lori,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. It sounds like we do have a lot in common. Sophia and I are using American Girl books as our focus for our unit on the Depression. I would be happy to pass along any ideas we come up with along the way. I would love to hear yours too. Cathy
PS I just bought a new bike - The Contessa 40 - my daugther said it was meant for me because it is gray and pink (pink is my favorite) and it has 40 on it. Being 40 is wonderful, isn't it?

Nice to meet you. I don't believe there is "spare time"..just sneaking time when you have kids. Mine are 4 and 6. Great fall treasures in your etsy...wonderful autumn colors. Lisa

Thanks for the link to Kit. I looked at it briefly but plan to go back and look at it in more detail. It looks to have much that we can use. Thanks again for thinking of us. I can't wait to get started on The Great Depression. Cathy

Lori, I'm a night owl too! Even if I'm falling asleep, I can't seem to make myself go to bed at a decent hour! My family and I loved Wall-e too!

Hi Lori, I paused on the way down to read your answers to the questions, that extraordinary ice cream dessert stopped me! Oh MY GOSH!! I agree, there is literally no spare time when you're a mom! It's nice to meet you and to get to know you better through the party!
