Meet The MIM Team - Rene


Welcome to the third of the Meet The MIM Team features.

This week it is Rene's turn to tell us a little bit about herself.

When Michelle mentioned she wanted to spotlight each MIM DT member, I was so excited!  I mean, is there anything better than talking about yourself?!?  Lol!!! 
So let me tell you just a little bit about myself.  I'm a former teacher (7th and 8th grade Social Studies) who "retired" after I became a mom to my lovely daughter Grace.  Good thing too as twenty months later, along came Isabel!  Grace is already in kindergarten and Izzy starts in the fall!  Maybe, just maybe, the house will get cleaned, the dogs will get walked and mom will start running regularly again!  (Ok, we all know what is REALLY going to happen is the crafts will flow, mom will gain weight because she doesn't have to set a good example and will eat PopTarts all day, and the peace and quiet will slowly eat away at any sanity I have left!  Hahahaha!) 

Grace and I at the kite festival...she had a butterfly painted on her face.

Izzy in her new favorite "chair" watching her favorite show 'Dinosaur Train.'

I've been making cards for around seven years but only really got into it about two years ago.  For me, crafting is a great way to relax and pretend I'm an artist.  I joined the Make it Monday design team last year and have loved every single minute of it!  They are the most wonderful group of ladies! 

I shall close with some totally random pictures!  Lol!  Thank you for popping by and reading this little bio!  And a big thank you to Michelle for coming up with the idea! 

This is me ready for our Christmas party...one of the perks of having extremely long ape arms is the ability to take pictures of yourself!  Lol!!!!  In the background is my only son (sleeping on MY pillow of course), Nicholas!

This is there the mess...I mean magic!...happens...

And last, but definitely not least, here are my "original" babies:

Nicholas, my ferocious guard dog (don't tell him but he acts an awful lot like a cat!)...

And my pretty princess Maggie!

Thanks for sharing with us Rene!! Your daughters are sooo adorable (and so are your puppies)!!

It is an absolute pleasure to have you on the MIM team.

Next week will be Shirley-Anne's turn to give us a sneak peek in to her crafting life.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Michelle :o)
