Hi there! If you're reading this, I assume you found me through the Ultimate Blog Party 2012 over at 5 Minutes for Mom. Thanks so much for stopping by!
First, a little about me. I am a 38 yr old long-time craft-and-book-aholic, living in the Metro DC area. I also happen to be a happily married wife and mother to 2 little girls. I have what many would say is the job of their dreams as a book buyer for a major retailer, which basically means I get all the free books I want for me, my kids, friends, family, and strangers on the street corner. I only wish I had the time to read them all!
I started blogging as the Crafty Garden Mom about 2 years ago. Short story is my oldest daughter and I had been crafting all morning, went outside to do a little gardening, and she said, "Mommy, you're not just a mommy, you're a crafty garden mommy!" It was so cute the way she said it, and it was all I could think of when picking a blog name later that night.
Although I have a bad case of self-diagnosed Crafter's ADD, my main crafts today are quilting and knitting. Gardening is a more part-time hobby for me in Spring and Summer. I am a voracious reader all year round (2-3 books a week, yes I read while changing diapers!) I talk about all of these hobbies at various times, depending on what's going on in my life that week.
A little over a year ago I decided to start a podcast as Crafty Garden Mom. There I discuss motherhood, quilting, knitting, and of course books! It's been a lot of fun podcasting and I have met so many wonderful fellow crafty podcasters along the way.
Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you'll leave a comment saying hi, and I will come find you on your blog.
