About Me

Hi! I am Shannon. Wife to an amazing (and super cute) man, and mom to 5 of the most amazing little people on the planet. I used to be a writer for a newspaper, but it turns out, raising kids while having a husband frequently gone on deployment is pretty time consuming. So I stopped getting paid to write and now write here just because it feels good. 

About me..... I have mad love for the clouds, the sky, and sunshine. I'm on the SUMMER FOREVER team. I love the beach and the ocean, and I love to swim in the waves. I love flavored coffee (and lots of it), all shades of blue, secondary colors, road trips, and camping in our travel trailer. Music is my favorite and we rock out to all kinds, from reggae to hip hop, country to motown.  I love all shades of blue, but sky blue is my favorite. I love the color pink, too. I never leave the house without showering and getting ready. Ever. I am a Navy wife and love this community of military friends that has become my family. I drink too much diet coke, stay up way too late,  and don't really watch TV, unless I'm watching movies on Hulu or Netflix. I like to read, but I go through phases. I will stay up all night reading and read books back to back for a few weeks straight, and then will go a month or two before I start reading again. I have perpetual baby fever, but am realizing how awesome it is to be a mom of young teenagers. So fun! I am obsessed with fabric. Which is it what fuels my love of quilting. I love to take something and make that one piece into something different. And I super duper love the idea of creating something that becomes intertwined with a person's, a family's story. Quilts are a form of art that is both functional and lovely to look at and I still find it incredible that you can use something for warmth and comfort that is handmade, one of a kind, and such an expression of creativity. I also love to sew small things....mini quilts, pouches, bags, mug rugs, pillow covers! I love to create quilts but often need the instant gratification that a small project provides. 

Oh, and I am crazy about my husband. 

And if that doesn't it do for you, maybe these posts will......
