Just a little About me.
My name is Jolie Klassen. I am 35 years old and am getting ready to celebrate my 10th anniversary with my love, Jon. We have 2 rambunctious boys, 6 and almost 4. We keep pretty busy.
I am a stay at home mom and I home school the youngest in preschool.
I used to teach. I loved it. I love being home with my family even more.
This blog is where I share my thoughts, what's cooking in our kitchen, and what creative things are happening in my craft room.
I bake, sew, cook, stitch, stamp, and scrapbook. In between all those I find other things to do, too. I don't do everything at once. That's why I am a few years behind in my album making.
I also love to throw parties. Pinterest helps a lot with this. This is good, because I am a Pinterest junkie.
My favorite place to be is the beach. I like the mountains, but the beach is my all time favorite place.
I love food. I have a milk allergy that I've had since I was a small kid. It went dormant as I grew up, and it slowly started coming back in college and then with each pregnancy, it got worse. Our youngest also has a milk allergy, so we keep a rice cheese, almond milk, and coconut cream on hand.
My favorite color is blue.
I collect fabric, bowls, and kitchen gadgets.
Fall and Winter are my favorite times of the year.
My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight."
I LOVE the Proverbs 31 woman. I want that to be my goal.
My house is most often a mess. But, that's because life is happening in my house and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I am completely in love with Justin's Chocolate PB cups. They are amazing! And dairy free, which is a great thing!
I love crime shows with a kick of comedy. So, usually when I am crafting, I am catching up on NCIS shows, Mysteries of Laura, Castle, and Bones. I also LOVE Once Upon a Time, but only when I can binge watch the episodes at the end of the summer.
