Link Up the Love

So I've been thinking about this post for about two days knowing that I wanted to do it but not sure how I wanted it to go....
I'm joining a great group of people from over at K Andrew's blog, http://www.gettingcricky.com/ this week K asked us to "Link up the love" because the bloggy world has become a bit impersonable and we don't always take the time to get to know the person behind the post. I agree with her and admit that I am even guilty of not always leaving a comment even when I think a project is faboulous because I think the person won't notice or I'm short on time. I have made a vow to be better! It only takes a few seconds and it could make the persons day, I know that I ALWAYS smile when I get a comment :)

So instead of a project in todays post I'm going to tell you a little more about me, the person behind the post, and hope you will browse and enjoy the projects in the posts below.

...Most of you already know my name is Becky, lol, so I'll skip the obvious. What you may not know about me is why I have a small, ok big, affection for squirrels (but I'm sure you can tell from my blog) This affection stems back to my college days when my friends told me that I had the personality of a squirrel. Now this involved a lot of drinking, come on it was college, but it stuck and it became my licence plate and I now have little squirrel knick knacks all over my house. They have kind of become my mascot and they always make me smile. I think it may be my way of hanging on to my college days and staying close with those friends who so long ago gave me that nick name without knowing how far it would go :)

I also love to browse antique shops for fun. Now that doesn't happen to often anymore with little ones you know little hands and breakables are not always a good combination. But when I need an escape every once in a while I will find an antique shop and get lost. I am usually looking for buttons or things I can incorporate in my crafty creations. But I also like to collect things to decorate my craft room with. In some of the pictures below you will see some of the vintage thread spools that I found on one of my last trips. I also found this adorable little cast iron stove that I couldn't pass up. It now adorns the shelf in my new scrap room.

But the most important thing about me above and beyond my crafting passion is that I am the mom to the two most wonderful and beautiful boys in the whole wide world! They are the light of my life and they keep me going every day and recently I was fortunate enough to be given the chance to stay home with them again.

There is a ton more I could tell you a ton more about me but this post is getting a bit long winded. So now I would love it if you would all play along with us and join the rest of us in "Linking up the Love".

All you have to do is add your link to this list and don't forget to stop by K Andrew's blog.

Thanks for reading tonight!
