Getting to know you!

In a little over a month this brand new blog has gone from 0 followers to 121 followers! I'm so eager to get to know you guys and would love to share a little about myself. If you have any questions for me I'd love to answer them; about my life, beliefs, family, whatever!

And I'd love to hear a little about you- what is your name? What are your favorite giveaways? Do you have children? Anything and everything! Tell me a funny story about something recent in your life!

Well my name is Joy and I am about to turn 25 at the end of this month. I have three daughters- Elaina is 4, Abigail will be 3 next month and Zoƫ is about to turn 4-months old! My husband is Daniel. He recently became a licensed pastor in 2008 and is also a worship leader. He is an absolutely amazing singer!

I am a jewelry maker. I actually have 2 Etsy shops (soon-to-be 3 shops!). You can find them HERE and HERE. I'm currently working hard to revamp the shops, which is why I haven't been writing on this blog very often.

My obsessions in life would be- my children and pregnancy/childbirth. I am what you would call a Birth Junkie! I love reading about pregnancy, birth and watching videos on the subject. I am also obsessed with Stargate (not the new junk but SG-1 and Atlantis).

I love to sleep though it doesn't happen much! Ha ha! I also love chocolate, dancing, singing (in private, ha) and cuddling up to a good chick flick with some homemade popcorn.

A funny story that has happened to me recently is this: I was in the kitchen cleaning up after dinner. My two older girls were in the playroom off of the kitchen. One of them goes whizzing past me into the front of the house and starts counting, "1, 2, 3, 4, 5! Here I come!" They come stampeding back to the playroom to find their sister! On and on this went. At one point Abigail counted only to 3 before she ran back to the playroom and Elaina wasn't hidden yet. Elaina got upset and reminded Abigail to count longer.

As Abby passed by me I told her, "Honey, try to count to 10 and then go find your sister!" She gives me this indignant look and proceeds to count... "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10!" As she gleefully runs past me she proudly says, "I count to 10, Momma!"

So sweet! She really does know how to count to 10 but was too excited about the game to take her time.

And to answer a question I asked you guys- my favorite giveaways to enter are the ones for jewelry! I love me some jewelry!!! Obviously, since I make jewelry. Ha ha!!!

I cannot wait to hear about you guys!

  5. My name is Cheryl McCullough. I am going to be 25 in may :) I have one little baby, Josphine "Joee" Grace. She is the love of my life, and she just turned 5 months old. I have a wonderful husband who is a carpenter by trade. He makes me anything that I come up with. He is very much my opposite, but we fit together perfectly.

    I graduated from college in 2008 and did not find a job in my field. So I am still a waitress working in the same restrant since I was 17. I will try looking for a better job again...someday. Right now I enjoy not having to work 40 hrs a week and being home with my daughter.

    I have a cupcake fetish and collect all things cupcake. I taught myself how to sew last year and since have sewn some really pretty stuff! I am very crafty and dabble in just about all areas of crafting.

    Right now I am obsessed with going to Orlando for our anniversy. I know I am going to miss my daughter while we are down there but I figure it is better now then when she is older. Plus when she is older we will take her to the kiddy parks and there will be no more mommy and daddy parks :) So I am going to try and suck it up and just do it. :)

    I think I covered the questions!

    Cheryl :)
