First, let me welcome and introduce you to my first blog, Slammin’ the Screen Door. I have been a reader and follower of some pretty awesome blogs over the years and will now attempt to come off the sidelines and join the virtual world of sharing.
for the name… I grew up in south Alabama and my grandparent’s home had a wooden
screen door on the back porch. As children - always in a hurry- we ran in and
out of that door and never took the time to keep it from slamming. Oddly, my grandmother never corrected us.
the years, my imaginary screen door has not stopped slamming and this is not a
complaint. It is an indicator of how
busy life has been (with all good things).
As a teenager, I was involved in many school functions and after school
activities. As an adult, I have been
blessed with a full time job, lots of hobbies and most importantly, I became a
wife and mom.
husband and I have two fantastic kids… just
ask us J Our son (21) is in the Navy and our daughter
(18) just graduated high school in May.
This is our first summer without scouts or some sort of travel sport
schedule to follow and we will no longer have the many school activities to
keep my screen door slamming, I plan to take this new found freedom and get
back to the many hobbies I’ve dabbled in over the years. This includes scrapbooking and reading but mostly
I enjoy activities that involve a stitch of some sort like
quilting, embroidery, knitting and crocheting.
Slamming the Screen Door will be my place to reveal
the long list of UFOs in my ‘craft room’ (which
is more like an oversized closet!) and hope that you will help keep me
do you tackle UFOs? Do you work on only
one until it is done or do you keep a few going at a time?
signing off, many bloggers have inspired me over the years (see my Favorite Reads?) and there are a few people that I need to thank…
