About Me

"Southern Matriarch" that is what my oldest daughter has dubbed me from time to time. What she really said is "You have not lived until you have been raised by a Southern Belle with strong religious principles." Some kids have it tough. This Southern Matriarch has been married for 41 years and mother of four great kids, two sons in law, one daughter in law and seven of the most beautiful grand-babies on the planet. I believe in southern charm, manners and family connections. God has blessed my life. My passions besides my family and faith are just about anything that involves a needle and thread. Have been sewing almost my whole life. I love heirloom sewing, smocking and hand embroidery. My #1 favorite project to do is a christening gown. There is no greater joy than to create something memorable for a baby's most important day.

One of my life's goals was to be a grandparent. It is a role I cherish deeply and Mimi is my favorite word in the world. The ones who call me that are:

Princess. She is eight and half now. Its hard to believe she is so grown up. A very prim and proper young lady. Usually. She loves ballet, reading and piano.

Wildman is seven.  And lives up to his name. Never stops talking, moving or asking questions. Loves baseball, legos and drawing.

Nugget is five and a half. Get out of his way, he is coming through! Is an avid Saints fan, loves Star Wars and anything Wildman loves. They are thick as thieves.

LG or Little Girl, as her mother has called her since the day she was born is four years old now, knows everything; just ask her. Is the boss of her siblings but the first to share or make up. Princesses, ballerinas and fairies are her favorites.

LB, is two years old. Loves animals and getting her way. Momma used to think she had a problem with speech. Not so much anymore. :) Talks a blue streak now and if LG is the boss among her siblings, LB is the boss of the universe, gives direction like an army general but because she is so cute, gets away with blue murder.

Sweetums, is 10 months old and days from walking. He keeps his mom and dad on their toes, but they are so thankful for it. He is a treasure that is watched over by his angel sister in heaven. 

The newest little man is Big O. He is four months old and doted on by Princess and Wildman like you never saw.  He is a sweet and chill little guy. 

They are the main reason I sew and create. I can hardly imagine what life was like before they arrived, all eight in eight years with one sweet angel in heaven and one more on the way. Crazy, busy life but we love it.
