About Me

Hi and welcome to my blog!  I'm so glad that you stopped by.  Let me introduce myself, I'm Kaysi,

and I'm a stay at home Mom to four wonderful kids. Photobucket

I have three fun and active boys, ages 7, 5 and 3 and one beautiful baby girl who just turned 1. They keep me busy and on my toes. There is never a dull moment with my 4 kids!

I have been married to one amazing and patient man for 8 years. He puts up with me and my crazy ideas and he just smiles when I start a sentence, "so I had this idea...."

I am just your average SAHM who loves to craft and do anything crafty. I'm from a very crafty and creative family, so it's in my blood! :)  I am the youngest of 9 kids (still not sure how my parents raised 9 kids, I'm struggling with 4).  Because I was the youngest of so many kids, I have a huge desire to be unique.  I want to be different and stand out!

Sometimes as a SAHM the days become kinda blah and the crafts keep my mind active and get me excited about doing things. Doing something crafty is just so much better to do than cleaning and changing diapers :)

Here a just a few facts about me:
~I love green, all shades of it
~I'm addicted to chocolate
~I'm not very girlie at all, I rarely do myself up
~I love running (when I get the time), I've done some half marathons and hope to do a full someday soon
~I'm not good at baking.  I once broke my mom's food processor trying to make cookies from scratch and haven't made cookies from scratch since then (that was over 10 years ago).
~I still get imitated by some sewing projects, I'm still a beginner.
~I'm a very social person.  I would hangout with friends and family every day of the week if I could.

I love simple and easy crafts. I especially love doing a craft that I know anyone can make. I love to teach others how to make them, so you will find lots of tutorials, even if it's a super easy thing to make. I love to hear that I have inspired someone to get out of their comfort zone and make something, it totally brightens my day.

I love this blog sis! Hey, I need an idea for what I can do to make white tshirts cute for Kenzi's birthday party. I thought I saw you cut a tshirt down the middle once and retie it, but I can't find it. I already have cute skirts and gloves for the party, but want an activity with the shirt that will be easy. You are so fun and creative! And Tasyn is adorable! Love ya! Downi

My little girl was born November 2010 too..I use her nap times to craft because when she's awake she wants all eyes on her! :)

Great blog, love the baby dresses! I've just added some links to your link party today.

Keep well and keep crafting,

I LOVE your angry birds vinyls. I was wondering if you would be willing to sell me a set. I'm not nearly this crafty, but I know our youth at church would love it. Thanks!
