Welcome! 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party!

Hello fellow bloggers, and welcome all newcomers stopping in from the Ultimate Blog Party!
This is my first go 'round and it is so inspiring to see all the amazing blogs out there - I wish there were enough hours in the day to stop by each and every on of them.

My bio to the left pretty much says it all, lol, so at the risk of sounding redundant here goes:
hi there! I'm Leslie, SAHM to 2 kiddos, a 9 year old girl and a nearly 15 year old son. Yikes, that makes me sound old... We're a military family and my husband, often referred to here as The Sarge, is a MSgt with over 14 years in service ...ewww, old again....

I love to make things - any thing!  
But mostly I love love love to sew.
and design.
and embroider.
and fit.

I also love to play with paper, digital scrap, bake, bead, decorate, go junking, swap, trade, organize, whew!
and I think I may have mentioned, I really like to make things. :o)

So feel free to snoop around, here are a few of my favorite posts:

The first two, because they are "me". Foot stomping, pouting, shouting and all.
The last one because, well, I love beautiful things. And Alices Um Dress is definitely a BeeYootiful thing. I really really really want to make this!
And I shall, but should it be for me, or Kadence? Ah well, first I need to get things a bit settled around here. Like:
I am preparing for a show on April 12th, and hope to open my own etsy shop around the same time. I currently carry my childrens line Cherry Bubbins in a brick and mortar store but am excited about this new venture! Wish me luck!

Thanks for popping in and leave me a comment so I can return the favor and check out YOUR amazing blog!
Happy Celebrating!
