Okay, so this me- Heidi.

My awesome Mister and I. So lucky to be married to my best friend!

Hopefully we can become friends because chances are if you are here at my site we have a few things in common under the category of crafting. If we are already friends off the net, then – yay! Thanks for supporting me! Here are some things that are important to me:

  • God. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints ( or “Mormon”)
  • Husband. How lucky am I to have the best guy around? My number one supporter and best friend. We have known each other since the age of 16!
  • Kids. I have SEVEN of them! GBGGGBG- Yep 5 girls 2 boys. Love them all to pieces.
  • The rest of my family. I am seriously blessed to have a loving supportive family, both blood relatives and in-laws. Love y’all!
  • Friends. Where would I be without you? Thanks for the laughs and the shoulders.
  • Anything and everything creative!

Some crafting history: I was born crafty. Just ask my Mom. So many things were hiding under my bed because I might make something out of it. And I did. Pretty sure Mom still has the snowman I made out of an old sock and random other things. I will have to get a pic for a winter posting. Maybe make a new version with the kiddos and post a tutorial! image

My favorite place to be growing up was with my grandparents. Any of them really, they all inspired me in different ways. But one particular grandma, Grandma M, was always making something and learning a new craft. I am pretty sure I am her clone.

My Grandpa M built a motor home out of an old school bus- from scratch. It was amazing. I had fun making things out of the scrap wood he would give me to build with.

Grandma D, along with my Aunt Charlene, are who I have to thank for teaching me to crochet. I am sure they had no idea they were planting the seeds for a yarn-o-holic! Now I am spinning my own yarn!

And what a lucky girl I was (am) to have a THIRD set of grandparents, who are also very near and dear to me. Grandma W is always knitting or quilting or sewing…I have the baby blankets to prove it! Grandpa W is responsible for my home-made bread addiction. The first time I ever tasted it I couldn’t get enough- and still can’t. It took me a few years but I have finally mastered the art of bread baking. YUM! I will have to share some recipes with you sometime.


My husband, seven kids, and I, live in a log cabin in the mountains. Where we homeschool and raise goats, chickens, ducks, dogs, and a cat. We get the privilege almost daily to see elk. So much that my littles get more excited to see a cow than an elk!

So there you have it- a peak into the life of a creative genius!

Happy Day!
