In the beginning there was fluff...

Welcome to my first blog. I am a stay at home mom of five amazing children. A housewife and a known "I can't just sit there all day" busybody.
I found that getting married young and having a litter of kids before I was 35 made it really hard for me to "find" a career that I fit into. I took as many classes in college as I could take, never really going for a degree, but for the enjoyment of learning something new, or adding to what I already loved to do.
I did not start out this way, in fact in high school I was an artist and that is what I planned on doing my entire life. Well, I don't think I was ever really good enough so it never went anywhere.
I worked a lot of crappy jobs the first 10 years of my marriage, never found a single place that I fit into. We decided that I should stay home and take care of the kids full time. This of course meant that we would never in 20 years make ends meat so to speak. I love being at home and teaching my own children.
I found that I am good at a lot of little things. Genealogy, cooking, baking, crafts, painting, sculpture, ceramics, working on computers, photography, working on cars (especially old Mustangs), even chasing storms...and so on. I still just cant find that one thing that would make a career for me, or make enough money to get by. Sometimes I think I just wont find it.
So I thought I would make a blog on all of the things I love to do and see if maybe I can inspire anyone out there to be creative as well. Hope you enjoy!
