About Me

Hi there.  My name is Delle and I yearn to create!!!
Let me show you my most wonderful creation . . .
. . . my family!!!

This is our family after church on Christmas Day, 2011.
My guy and I have seven beautiful daughters ranging in age from almost 20 (that's her on the far right) to 2 (that's me holding her).
Can you even begin to imagine how much fun we have together - whether we're playing Barbies, board games, basketball or just lingering around the dinner table - we love to be together.

I've been blessed to be able to be a stay-at-home mom.  Taking care of my family takes up a large portion of my time - I even homeschool my children until grade 4.  In my spare time (what's that?) I love to create.  Actually, that's not true.  I plan time to craft because otherwise it would never happen.  Crafting keeps me sane!  Mostly I love to work with wood, paper and fabric.  One thing I don't enjoy is cooking.  I'm only in the kitchen because we need to eat to survive.  I do love eating though - as long as I don't have to make it!  I also squeeze in (usually at the last minute!) doing the bookwork for my guys construction company.

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and currently serve as the secretary in the Primary.  The gospel brings great blessings and joy into my life.

And that's me in a nutshell.  I started this blog in March of 2011 for fun.  I started a family blog a few month before that (a combination of a photo album and a journal) and really enjoyed it, so I started a craft blog to share ideas to help others find joy in creating too.
I'm finding joy in this blogging journey!

And here's another one called How I Find Time to Blog
Very insightful stuff here!!!
