I craft, I bake, I knit, I scrap, and sometimes, I even parent my three growing teenagers!
Interests: Well, the stuff in my Bio, above, plus I adore Young Living Essential Oils & their whole line of products! They have literally changed my life! Check me out at http://www.myyl.com/smellyann and hit me up if you'd like more info! ;)

Thanks, Zippi - The problem is, I have no formal training. I really need to take a class or 20, because this f-stop stuff really is hard for me to wrap my mind around! But I am hoping to do just that (take classes) sometime this year. Cheers - ~M
Thanks, Bev - its so fitting!! ;) ~m

Stacy - I know what you mean about all the buttons and sounds! When we were little, Mom used to give my sister Stacey and me alternating 5-minute periods of time playing with all those buttons on the organ. I used to love figuring out the silliest and most beautiful sounds I could find. There was an organ like that at the local thrift store we frequent for months; I was so happy when it finally sold! :D ~Melanie

Thanks, Zippi - I had many people telling me that Im not supposed to go out that way, until I believed them and started to come around from feeling sorry for myself and my wee family! So, thank goodness for them, I plan to be around for many years to see grands and maybe greats! Tell me more about glass-blowing classes; I take it youve done it?? Eek, now Im scared! ;) ~M
Thank you, CD - thats definitely my goal for this year!!! 3 ~M
Fixed the colors - thx again!! ~M
Kwizzy - oops, thanks for letting me know about the colors! I forget sometimes because I dont always go back to look at the posts after I change the color format. Thank you! ~m
Thanks, Stacy!! I went to Niagara Falls - both sides - once or twice as a kid, but I look forward to going again as an adult with MY kids. Such a beautiful site! Happy New Year! ~M
Zippi - I tried SO hard not to get this sick last month. I went to the doc/ER 3x and it still wasnt detected, which sucked. Needless to say, Im totally firing my doc and getting a new primary care manager ASAP. Dude, go see Pitch Perfect 3! SOOOOO funny. :D ~melanie
