My First Blog Post

Hi All!!

I'm so excited to start this journey! I've always wanted to start a blog and have always been scared to or thought I couldn't/wouldn't be able to keep up with it.

But I'm determined to keep it up. I want to document my life in a way that I want to. This blog will be mainly for crafting and projects I'm working on, but it will also include posts about my children, family, friends and everything else that's going on in my life. So be ready for this to be "randomly organized".

A little about me:

I grew up in Iowa and have lived here since I was 3. I went to Central College in Pella, IA and majored in Math and minored in Computer Science. I married my amazing husband in 2009 and we have two amazing little girls. They keep us on our toes. I also work full time at an insurance company so my time is limited to do the things that I love. But I'm determined to not let that stop me. Our family loves the Iowa Hawkeyes and Minnesota Vikings! We love to spend time with family and friends, have cook outs, get togethers and just have a good time and enjoy life.

I have always loved crafts and making things. I love to sew, crochet, make cards, scrapbook, etc. If it involves creating something, I'm in!

I recently got into the planning world and absolutely love it! I purchased my planner from Plum Paper Designs. They have some amazing planner options and customization options as well.

Purchasing a planner meant I needed to actually use it! I have been so stressed lately and thought it was about time to get my life back together and be more organized. When I'm organized, my OCD doesn't kick in as much and I'm able to relax a little more. That's an excuse to buy planner stickers right??!!!
I'll do a separate post on my new planner and the stickers I've purchased and used so far another day. :)

That's all for now. I'll be posting more soon. 

Thanks for stopping by!
