About Me

Hello! My name is Jess and I love to do anything creative and artsy in any way. I'm always wanting to learn new methods and improve my skills, musically & artistically. I started blogging initially to share what was going on in my life, but now I am using it as a business tool, as well as sharing with my friends artsy fartsy things I've made and learned! I love to paint and make custom art, if there's anything you need, please let me know, I always love a challenge! I hope you enjoy reading, come back often!!

Good times.

Yes! I got to sleep in this morning! It was awesome.

Tonight...we craft! I am soooo excited. I was beginning to go thru withdrawl symptoms. I was twitching! I've got some ideas for things to make and try out, which means I'll hafta make a trip by the store on the way to Mandy's, but I'm really excited! I love hanging with my girls, it's a lot of fun.

Sleep...ya know I never get enough. I'm always wakin' up tired...-Riley Armstrong

Ugh. This early morning crap is getting to me. Tomorrow I get to go back to my normal schedule, whatever that is. :) I'm serious when I say I could probably sleep for like, three days straight. I know that sounds incredibly lazy, but I'm not naturally a lazy person. I just enjoy sleep. Plus, I totally am a night owl, so that means I sleep in whenever I get the chance, to make up for it. Anyway, today's blog is boring, my apologies. I'll try to blog again today and make up for it. haha.

The early bird gets the worm. Really? That's all you get for getting up at the crack of dawn? What a stupid bird.

So I had to be at work early today. Instead of the usual 7:30am routine, I had to be at work at 6:00am. Ugh. Soooo...I dutifully set my alarm last night for 5:00am and went to sleep. Apparently I slept thru it, or turned it off in my sleep, because I woke up to my "hey, it's time to leave" alarm going off (thank goodness) at 5:40!!! Ahhhhh! I flew out of bed, splashed some water on my face, jumped into some jeans (fortunately it's casual Friday), and ran out the door. I came screeching in on two tires (as best you can at 15 mph), but I made it to work on time. I don't know how Mary Lou does this shift everyday... I'm for sure going home and taking a nap this afternoon. This getting to work before dawn is for the birds.

Everybody knows this, so I might as well say it out loud: I am a dork.

Yes, I know...I put a New Moon countdown clock on my Blog. I'm a dork, and I'm ok with that. I'm pretty sure I'm the biggest dork I know, but like I said, I'm ok with it. I gave up on denial long ago. I just happened to see it on a website and saw that you could grab it and put it on things, and I had to make it happen. What can I say? I'm excited about the movie. Honestly, I think I am more excited about going with my girlfriends to see it because we are going to all be dorks together. I veritable cornucopia of dorkness. I'm pretty sure we're gonna squeal and giggle like we're 13 again, followed by the "Grandma Green" speed clapping every five minutes. We might even pee our pants a little, but hey, it's all in good fun. It'll make the movie even better!

Good times,

Go easy on me...I'm a beginner

Hello all. I was informed by my best good friend, Mandy that I need to create a blog. Soooo...here I am!

Basically, this is me: I'm 28 years old and I've been married to my boyfriend, Kevin for 8 years now. We're the Sr. High youth Pastors at CenterPoint Church (woo hoo!) in Benton, AR. We have three, count 'em, THREE miniature weenie dogs who pretty much are certain that they are people. We're both crazy about music of all kinds, in fact, we went and braved the rain and freakin' freezing temperatures last night to see Skillet at the River Front Amphitheatre in Little Rock. We have the best group of friends a person could ask for. They're not just our friends, they're our family and we always have good times together. I am passionate about anything artistic or crafty, I love to draw, paint, and sculpt. (I can think of five people who have my artwork permanently affixed onto their body, some of them twice!) I'm kind of a perfectionist, and I get hung up on inventing new little dorky things to craft or create, but hey, that's me. I love hanging with my "Ladies" in the HL Sweat Shop. We have some of the most loud, obnoxious, and yet hilarious times there!

Anyway, that's me. Since this is my first blog on here, I figured information about me would be good. I don't know why, since the only people that will probably read this already know all this crap about me, but whatever. :) I like to blog and hopefully, I can make people laugh a bit along the way.

Smoochy moochy,
