Featured Friday! Bobbie from

Today I asked Bobbie, from A Vision to Remember, on over to hang out with us! We did a little interview style swap and it was a lot of fun! Be sure to head over to her blog to learn a little more about me! : )

Thanks so much Fawnda for swapping blogs with me today!

I am an avid reader of Fireflies and Jellybeans. Fawnda always has such great ideas.

We decided to ask each other some questions so that our readers can get to know us better. Here are those questions and my answers:

1.) Tell us a little bit about yourself

I am a stay at home mom of 2 girls and 1 dog and a wonderful husband. I love to sew , cook, play the piano, and play with my girlies. My newest found love is making jewelry. I am far from professional, but it is fun figuring out new things.

I HATE cleaning, but at the same time I hate unorganized space. Can I say Oxy moron? I know...weird huh. I would rather load the dishwasher 4 times everyday than handwash a single dish.

2.) What are some of your favorite craft blogs? (Besides fireflies and jellybeans!)
One of my favorite blogs is Get your Craft On.
She always comes up some really great ideas. Plus we both have little girls that we love to dress up.

3.) What are some of your favorite projects that you have done?
I have a couple of favorite projects (click on the picture to get to the post)

My version of a felt house. Of course I can't follow the "rules" I used outdoor home decor fabric (instead of felt), I also used pvc pipe instead of a card table, and my hubby decided on the LARGE size (we both think its a bit big for an indoor "tent")
This pretty flower is also one of my favorites from my blog. I was inspired by SOMEONE in blogland. They had purchased a flower similar to this, and of course I had to try and recreate it. (if you know who it is please let me know). Oh and this flower desperately needs a name, any ideas?

4.) What is your favorite book(s)? Favorite Movie(s)? and Favorite TV show(s)?
My favorite books of all time are the Children of the Promise Series written by Dean Hughes. (I LOVE series). I also love romantic westerns, and any historical fiction.

My favorite movie from childhood is Aladdin. As an adult I love Moulin Rouge. I have not watched it in a REALLY long time. I really don't feel it is an appropriate show for my girls to watch. Maybe when they are in their late teens they will love it as much as I do.

Favorite TV shows are WAY to many to list them all. I will say that my ABSOLUTE favorite is Hogans Heroes. It is an old comedy show from the 70's. Even my 4 yr old loves to sit down and watch it with me. Schultz is by far my favorite character. My favorite modern shows are 24, Amazing Race, Project Runway, 19 kids and counting, Biggest Looser, and office to name a few. I have a love hate relationship with the Bachelor. I hate all the smootching and I don't allow myself to watch it when the girls are around. That is just to much to explain to a 4 yr old.

5.) Where is your dream vacation?
My dream vacation is a few week long cruise to the Mediterranean. I have wanted to do this for as long as I can remember. No such luck yet. It will definitely happen in the NEAR future (10 years sounds good :)

Thanks again for swapping blogs with me! I would love to see you around. Check out my blog and make sure to stop by on Saturdays for my Link Party (Check Me Out Saturdays).
Also, come on over and visit my shop on Etsy


The Show Off Your Stuff Party is still going on! Be sure to check it out! I will be posting my favorites on Sunday!
