I love to cook but the everyday grine on what to cook is a pain. It's great to come with a meal pretty much waiting for you, even though I'm a stay at mom.Not by choice now. A job is hard to find here, like most places.Especially, since I was a stay at home mom for 14 years before the big D. I hate even staying the word. Anyway, my most fav thing to do is scrapbooking. I love telling my family's story, even if it's a little sad at times. But there is always something to smile about. I live in Florida near Pensacola. I teach scrapbooking and cards making classes at my local scrapbooking store. I'm also a Close To My Heart Consultant for about 6 months now.I have 3 great kids. I know everyone says that. But really they are nothing like I was when I was younger. My mom and dad raised 3 b and 2 g, she said, we gave them hell. So yes! My kids are golden. HeeHee. Happy Crockin and Scrapin Y'all!!!!
