A little about me.......and introduction. Not that one can TRUELY encompass who one is in a post, but it is a start.
I am a mother to 5 kids really. Four are biological. One is from the heart. They are my world though. They are in range from 16 years old all the way down to 3 years old. All are boys......except the baby. She is the ONLY girl.
I am almost 34, and had my first at 19. It was the BEST, and scariest thing I have ever done......I have done somethings too. I am married to an AMAZING husband. Well, as amazing as any person can be, and extremely so to me.
We have owned one house flat out, and sold it. We just bought our forever home. I am in love with it. I have never lived in a real neighborhood, or in a house that was not a townhome........ever. Until now.
I craft, and am pretty darn good at it. I am about to start making #diffuser teddy bears, and regular teddies. I crochet, and make blankets doing so. I LOVE my style of art.
I started with essential oils over a year ago, and never looked back. I remember thinking it was hooey, and being so wrong. So, I am now one of the local essential oil ladies. That story will unveil itself over time.
I am a little eccentric. I have a great sense of humor. I LOVE to cook, and bake. You will see a LOT of that here. I have sunset colored hair, and LOVE that. I am #tatooed and proud. #Pierced and proud. You will get to know more about me as my story unravels. I did however want to do a little "Hello, my name is". OH! My name is Melodie, but everyone (except my husband) calls me Sissy. Take your pick 🤣🤣
The Creative Process: 1. This is awesome. 2. This is tricky. 3. This is crap. 4. I am crap. 5. This might be okay. 6. This is awesome. -- @junelettersstudio • Thanks to everyone (like my friend Birdie here) who worked through the creative process with @cathythinkingoutld and I at our first craft workshop for @chaptersindigo at @IndigoPinecrest on Monday night. (We got Canada Day ready making some festive flip flops and hair ties.) Check out Indigo Pinecrest on Facebook or visit in store to learn about more coming events in their new Community Room. What kind of workshops would you like to see? #ad#experienceIndigo
My world! This little guy has taught me so much in the last 2.5 years.
Becoming a parent is so freaking scary, not sure what to expect, questioning almost everything you do especially when it’s your first child.
How many times that we wished for him to get to the next milestone and then it happened, and it was bittersweet for sure. Where did our baby go?!?? Well today marked the next milestone that we are embarking on. Finding the right preschool for our little dude so he can grow into the best little human ever. Damn, mommin’, parenting is hard at times, but when I see his face light up when he wants to go explore is truly the most gratifying experience.
Some days when my patience is at an all time low, I’ll call my Mom to see if we drove her nuts, and usually the answer was a big YES. So I’ll find myself apologizing to her that we were badasses. She would just let out a chuckle and reassure me that kids tests us and he is seeing how far he can push me. Well, that certainly is right on- he knows he is a cutie pie and that sometimes I will “overlook” what he’s doing.
My biggest thing always comes down to Balance so as long he is safe, then I’m ok with not worrying about every little thing. .

I finished up this growth chart yesterday for a cute little girl, who is very likely to need the 6 ft + mark 😁
