All About Me

 Hi, I'm Michelle.
Paige is my middle name.

This is my family.

We live outside of Seattle and enjoy spending summers and any free time we can find--on Camano Island, WA.

After teaching school for 15 years,

this is my 6th year I can call myself a stay-at-home mom! 
I loved teaching,

but my own kids started needing me more and more! 
Do you have any idea how difficult it is to schedule and feed and clothe and get the kids to after-school activities and sports when you're supposed to be in meetings at school?
It wasn't working well... actually it wasn't working at all... so, I'm now at home. (I didn't completely stop all teaching... I still teach Sunday School and lead multiple Women's Bible Studies and I volunteer at the kid's school.)  What a blessing being at home has been! 
Thankfully my AH (awesome husband--I love calling him that, because it's true!) can provide for our family without me working.  We are blessed to have 2 kids.  Jessica, age 16 (our blessing from God--who we adopted at birth) and Jacob, age 14 (our surprise, miracle boy who was supposed to be a stillborn).  By the grace of God and support of our family and friends, we survived 4 miscarriages, 3 failed adoptions and one high-risk pregnancy to have our children.  I could probably write and fill up a completely different blog on living through that pain...but how much fun would that be?

Instead, I started blogging about the things I love...creative
crafting, party planning, gift giving, cheesy puns and much more!  Who knew how much fun blogging could be?  I hope that my ideas inspire others to be creative and have some fun along the way.

I've met many wonderful blogging friends and readers online, and
I'd love to meet you.  Thanks for stopping by.  Drop me a line.
