I’m SO happy you have decided to drop by to take a glimpse inside my world!

Hi! I’m Allison!

My friends and family call me the “Artsy-Fartsy” one.

 You could always find me with crayons or paints in hand drawing, sitting on the floor scrapbooking, or playing around with beads when I was younger and that is still true to this day.

I became an Army wife when I married my college sweetheart, Travis, in Jan. 2007 and he always encourages me to be creative.

 It’s always nice to have someone that helps support your addiction passion, right?! It sure does help that he has a creative side as well.

Our first daughter, Miss P, was born in May of 2012.

 (Meet Miss P)
Miss P is a smart, but sensitive child who she also loves to create. She definitely enjoys coloring, painting, creating things with play-doh or clay, and much more.

And our second daughter, Miss S, was born in November of 2013. 

Miss S is our tiny, strong willed child! She is smart, imaginative, and MAY have her momma’s attitude. 😉

Here are a few other fun facts about me:
-Yellow is my favorite color
-I am a night owl.
 -I was born in MI but grew up in TN.
-I am obsessed with Cadbury Mini Eggs and look forward to Easter every year and stock up on bags of them. 
-I LOVE ice cream! 
I pretty much love any type of chocolate candy and if it has caramel even better. I am not a dark chocolate fan though.
 -I enjoy baking though I don’t do it near enough.
-I want to take a cake decorating class.
-I played soccer while growing up.
      -Travis and I would love to own an old plantation home one day and use it for events like weddings.
-I LOVE flowers! I LOVE to take pictures of flowers! Ranunculus, tulips, and calla lillies are some of my faves.  

I originally started this blog for our family and friends to keep up with us as we move about with the Army but it has now turned into much more.  
You will find posts on crafts, thrifty finds, re-dos, our house, and of course our life and adventures.
This blog helps keep me sane especially during those times my soldier is deployed.

I try to post every week day if possible and occasionally on weekends depending on what is going on in our world at the time. 

I love to link up to different parties around blogland and get to know as many as you out there as possible. It’s so fun making new “friends.”

You can find all my tutorials on my tutorial page.
Also, all my contact information is on my contact page or you can find all my social media buttons at the top of my blog in my header.

Come party with me and my other fabulous co-hosts every Thursday at The Handmade Hangout Party!

Link up your crafts, home decor, recipes, party ideas, and more.
Plus, you get to make new friends in the process!

So take a look around, leave a comment or two, and I hope to see you around often!
