Because I know you are curious....
Besides the fact that I love Diet Dr. Pepper, exercise, can't stand a messy house- yet often live in one, watch a lot of talk shows, and love my family....here is the stuff you want to know- cause you clicked here.
My name is Sharla.
I am a full-time stay-at-home mom.
I am the oldest of nine children
I graduated from a big university and taught elementary school for almost 10 years.
I also spent several years working as a pre-school teacher for a private pre-school.
I like to exercise. Before having children I completed over 7 marathons, and numerous 1/2 marathons and other races. It is a whole different story now, after having kids, but I am still a runner.
I used to snowboard and roller-blade and do some mountain biking.. Now I just store that stuff in our garage and sigh when I look at it covered in dust.
I am a former shopaholic...o.k. maybe I still am a shopaholic. shh...don't tell. :)
I am a Christian, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I currently teach/run a small preschool. I love teaching young children.
I started keeping this crafty blog-as a hobby, back in 2008, to share and record ideas.
While I enjoy it, my family will always come first. :)
As a side note, there is a real mom behind this blog. My house is messy, I have piles of laundry, mouths to feed, lots of pounds to lose, and a long list of dreams and desires I don't always get to do. My life is not measured by great posts or a long list of cool things I have done. Just thought I'd put that out there, because sometimes the internet mommy blog world can deceive us. And I don't know about you, but it is easy to get caught up in that. My goal is to NOT do that on this little blog.
Thanks for reading! I hope to get to know you through the world of blogging.
