Welcome to my brand new blog!

So...I finally did it! I took the plunge. I am a legit blogger. I have been reading dozens of my favorite blogs for a few years and wanting to start my own forever. Why did I wait so long, you ask? Honestly, I don't really know. Not sure how or where to begin, what to name it, blah blah blah. The usual excuses one uses to put something off indefinitely. But I finally went for it and that is what counts.
I think it only makes sense to start with an introduction. And let's pretend that someone who is not related to me will be reading this. Not likely, I know, but I did say pretend.
So lets start with my family. I have an awesome husband. We have been BFF's since we were 15. He is a great dad and an incredibly hard worker. He works A LOT, which sucks. But, it does allow me the time to do some things I really enjoy. Not to mention the budget. He does flooring, and the only reason I tell you that is because there may end up a being a "how-to" post on flooring at some point in the future. He would actually like to start a flooring blog but when you work 70-80 hours every week it's hard to find the time.
And then, there are my 3 kids. All SO different. James, my oldest, is 7. He loves school and is quite the artist. He loves Harry Potter, dinosaurs, Legos, and all things Mario. He has a more serious personality than my other kids, but he can get down on a good joke with the best of them.  My best (and only) daughter Julia is almost 6. She is a princess, or maybe a queen. All girl. She is so beautiful, but more importantly nice. She loves jewelry, fashion, Barbies and Lalaloopsy. Her best friend is her little brother. She is a parent's dream. Then we have the baby, Jackson, who is 5. HILARIOUS! Enough said. He would do just about anything to get a laugh. The more shocking and inappropriate the better. He is the most independent of my kids. And oddly enough, he likes to be called "baby" and never wants to be a grown up.
So I guess that leaves me. I never really considered myself to be crafty or artistic until recently. I have always liked to cook and bake, but that's about it.  A few years ago I decided I wanted to start cake decorating. So I looked at some blog tutorials and YouTube videos and gave it a shot. Turns out I had a knack for it. I did the same with sewing about 2 years ago, and although I am definitely no pro, I do alright. So now, any time there is something I want to do or try, I turn to the best teacher I know....the web. My goal for this blog is to post about things that I enjoy doing or making, and hope that you will enjoy reading it.
I am going to post a couple of my projects. Please forgive me for the crappy photo quality, most of them were last minute cell phone shots.
 
 
I hope you made it this far....I know it was a long one. I hope that I can get someone to read this regularly, and I hope it ends up being fun and interesting. Thanks for your time!
