I thought if Tricia wanted to know more about me perhaps others might as well so I'm posting this here and on my personal craft blog: http://mrsmulticraft.blogspot.com
Here are the “official” rules:
1. Players must list one fact, word, or tidbit that is somehow relevant to their life for each letter of your first or middle name.
2. When you are tagged you need to write your own post containing your first or middle name game facts, word, or tidbit.
3. At the end of your post choose one person for each letter of your name to tag.
4. Don’t forget to leave a comment telling them ,they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
5. If I have tagged YOU, please join in on the fun! (Rules supplied by Hannah at bittersweet)
Better- something I want to constantly be. I am always trying to be a better person(due to my faith in Christ), learn a better stitch, or better technique. I try to pass on what I learn to others too. Sometimes I come off as bossy or pushy but I promise I'm only trying to help and won't be offended if someone does something different than me. :)
Eternity- I believe that I will spend my eternity with God when I die. I believe in Christ being the only way to heaven and that once you are saved you are always saved. Christians are not perfect but we should strive to live a life that is a light to others, and we should be kind, and helpful, as well as forgiving, and loving.
Judging is wrong and is for God not man. And we should spread the word in our daily lives as we walk with Christ.
Thrifty- I was raised with the motto, "if it's still there the next time we go you are meant to have it". So I am always looking to see if something is on clearance, or if I can get more for my money. I frequently shop at thrift stores for my clothing, as well as for sweaters to unravel, and I also rescue stuffed toys. I once found 9 yards of fabric at the 1.00 a lb thrift store and I paid so little for it it wasn't even funny. Discovered at walmart that it was labeled at 5.00 a yard. :) I've even found handspun yarn once!
Hubby- I hate this word but it worked. lol. My husband and I met the year i turned 19. We got married exactly 10 months after we met. We did a lot of praying about it and felt it was the right thing to do. We have been married 3 years now and I think we've been doing pretty well. We never argue and rarely disagree which shocks many people. I strongly believe it is becasue he's the Man God intended for me to marry, but also because of 3 things we have decided are important to our marriage.
- communication- We do not go to bed angry. I mean this! It's meant for some long nights but it's been worth it.
- lack of selfishness- When I get mad I try to pick aprat why. If the thought is "well I never would have" or "He always does" or anything that makes ME more important than WE then it's selfish and not aplicable.
- true forgiveness- We do not bring up the past. It's not real forgiveness if you do. And it HURTs your relationship.
Animals- For as long as I can remember I have been a big animal lover. I have always had some sort of critters. the first were gerbils. Nasty little critters. I still remember they were escape artists and would get loose all the time. The doors in our house had a gap between the bottom and the floor so the little speed demons would run from room to room typically we'd catch them in my mothers closet hiding in her shoes. lol
Next it was guinea pigs. We wound up getting my first guinea pig as an adult. Her name was Angela, she was as smooth haired little sweetheart almost entirely white except she had a brown spot from her bum to her hips and a black spot over one eye. We had so many guinea pigs growing up I can't remember them all! But Angela Started it all.
After the guinea pigs I had turtles, lizards, frogs, and through most of my teen years a fat beagle named Ladybug. Then the Year I turned 16 everything changed.
That's when I met Tachi. I'd been saving for her for over a year. She was my first ferret. I have had a huge soft spot for ferrets ever since and it is my hope t one day own my own ferret shelter. People often think ferrets are rodents or something like a hamster. However they are as smart as a 3 year old child and very interactive. they have to be taught how to properly play with people(aka nip training) and they are not usually a pet that likes to be held.
I strongly believe in researching any pet you intend to own before you buy it due to how I came to own my 3rd and forth ferrets. My sister got them from a lady on freecycle. Saffire had Adrenal disease and ruby was deaf. Poor saffire's cancer had spread to the point he was almost entirely bald. Any ferret purchased from a pet store in the states typically comes from marshal farms, and they almost all will contract one of the 3 common ferret cancers and die before they get to 5 years of age. Tachi, saffire, and ruby all had this happen.
I currently own Toby (2nd ferret) As well as Terra and Siera who were a friends and she discovered she was allergic to them. Along with them our home contains 4 kitties, and a giant yellow dog. :)
Natural fibers- My main stash of yarn is acrylic for a few reasons, 1first I'm a cheapskate. I am also allergic to most wools, this includes but is not limited to: Alpaca, Lambswool, and Angora. I've found that there are some natural fibers I'm ok with like Merino, Bamboo, cotton, and BFL. :) But being cheep I rarely but them.I love the way bamboo looks and feels though and really want t oget some to spin with too.
Yarn- I seem to keep buying yarn when I find it on clearance or sale. I have discovered after sorting my stash recently that most of it is novelty yarns which I hate to use! How that happened I'm not sure but I must be drawn to it or something. I also own very little pink and green yarn. Almost all of mine is in the neutral and Blue family. Which I find amusing since my favroite color is GREEN! lol

I'm having a bit of a down day since I'm going to have to say goodbye to my beloved Ladybug tomorrow. Ladybug is a beagle and she's 14. I was a meanie and left her with my parents when I got married 3 years ago. she's been acting very strange for the past week and my mom noticed yesterday that she has a mass in her abdomen that is the size of a grapefruit. Ladybug has had a long doggie life, She does not do well in surgery (not that my dad would consider this anyway) and she's old. So Tomorrow I will be saying goodbye.
As a result I need to cheer myself up so I'm posting a bunch of patterns and tut's which have been e-mailed and commented so I could find them over the last month. I hope they are helpful and fun for you guys as I will be throwing myself into some crafty endeavor soon to take my mind off the sadness.

But I will try to update when I can.
The one thing you can do to help is leave comments with links to blogs that have patterns. I won't have time to do my random searches like I have in the past. Any thing you post I'll put up so long as it's not here all ready. :) I do for-see an amigurumi explosion over the summer as people will have more free time. Perhaps that will mean more patterns too. :)

Remember you can always comment with a link and I'd be happy to add it!
Also I wanted to let everyone know something as there seems to be some confusion on what I do here. :)
I don;t save these patterns to my computer. I simply search online for them and post links to the pattern itself. None of these patterns are mine (except the ami pug pattern)And I do not have access to them if a link is broken or not working. However! I do apprecaite you guys letting me know when I mess up and post a link to the wrong thing! lol. Even I can't function without coffee in the morning and I typically update while at work. Many times before that much required cup of coffee. ;) If the link is broken please let me know in a comment.
And remember you can look up patterns of a specific type by clicking on them in the sidebar. I try to tag each post with the types of patterns in it for easy searching. :)
So please keep commenting! I really love reading them! And I hope to post some more soon!
