Hi Sugar Bee Crafts readers! I'm excited to have the opportunity to share a little about myself and my own blog plus a really fun giveaway ($100 Ikea giftcard) on one of my very favorite blogs.
I blog over at Sparkles And A Stove sharing recipes, DIY gifts, DIY decor and crafts. My mission is making DIY projects, dinner, and memories. All with a little one on each pant leg. :-)
One of my favorite posts is this jar craft I made to declutter my kitchen drawers. Really easy and it reminds me to be happy every day!
Another favorite if you're looking for an easy but yummy soup for this last little bit of winter weather, my family loves this zesty hamburger soup!
Just for fun I thought I would share 5 facts about me and I hope you will stop by Sparkles And A Stove and tell me about yourself too!
1. Family: Married to my hubby who I met on Match.com for seven years. He's from Ireland so we do love St. Patrick's Day. :-) I also have a sweet little 1 year old girl known as Princess Sparkles and an almost 3 year old little boy I call the Leprechaun.
2. Travel: We love to travel but don't get to as much since the kids are little but I've loved Ireland, Scotland, London, Belize and The Bahamas.
3. Before kids: I was an accountant for 15 years and was working on my MBA when we decided it was time to have a family. I can't say I've ever regretted giving it up even when I need a mom time out- aka load the kids in the car seats, fire up the car DVDs, and ride around with a Sonic drink.
4. Favorite way to craft: I absolutely love my Silhouette so anything using it, and I also enjoy mod podge, and find spray paint therapeutic. :-)
5. Hobbies: Besides cooking and crafting, I love concerts (I've seen Def Lepard 13 times!) and all kinds of music, am a movie buff and go any chance I get, I also am a bookworm with favorites ranging from To Kill A Mocking Bird, to Pillars of the Earth to The Help, enjoy the outdoors immensely and I confess I love a good retail therapy session (is that a hobby?).
Now are you ready for some Ikea? I have a $100 gift card to share and one lucky person will get to do their own retail therapy amongst Ikea's huge selection! Thanks to Mandy for hosting this giveaway and I hope you'll stop by Sparkles And A Stove and say hi!
