I asked my husband to describe me in one word. His word almost immediately was "scrumtrulescent" and I thought, "What!?" He told me to look it up on urban dictionary. I did and this is what it said,
"adj: so great that any other word employed would be woefully insufficient, and would serve only to limit the sheer magnitude of the greatness intended as a descriptor. "
"A goodness that transcends all other levels of goodness."
I guess that's a good thing right? My husband is sweet. So, since I'm uncreative with my wording I decided "Scrumtrulescence" should be my blog title.
Starting January first I'm going to start doing a lot more crafting and I figured Id keep tabs on it on here. I'm going to attempt to work an hour on any type of craft each day of the year. Ive started learning how to embroider so I can do it on plane rides or on trips. I can crochet too but I'm not too good at it. Ive been taught but I never really learned how to follow a pattern so basically I can make scarves and small blankets.
Anyway, I'm super excited about it. I have a lot of things planned. I joined a quilting bee and that is going to help fill my days. My cousin is going to be having a baby along with another friend so I plan on making quilts and other random baby items. For thanksgiving we got a dining room table so now I can make table runners and place mats and fabric flowers.. the possibilities are endless. Also, all my presents for people will be handmade.. well if I can get them done in time.
So, you want to know a little about me? Well, my name is Hilary and I'm awesome. Currently I live in North Carolina in a tiny town called Pine Level. My husband is in the Air Force and he flies really fast jets. We got married in August of 08 in the crazy city of Las Vegas. Yes, Elvis did walk me down the aisle. It was a really fun time. He's from Washington State and I'm from Pensacola, Florida. Pretty opposite sides of the country eh? We have two doggies. A terrier named Jiffy and a beagle names Skippy. They are good dogs sometimes but we love them still. We met while learning how to swing dance. So I'm a lindy hopper. I like to eat but I'm too much of a fan of cooking. I used to like to bake but recently everything I've baked has turned out bleh. Perhaps I should try more. Im a photographer. I really, absolutely love weddings. My business is just starting up but I am so in love with it. I love my job and I am so thankful for my husband for letting me just go for it! OK, OK I'm tired of letting you read about me. Here are a few fun photos for your enjoyment. They are..of course photos of my husband and I. Ill add sewing goodies later.
This is my husband and I. Were using this photo on our Christmas cards. He looks so good!
This was taken during my 365 I did last year. I really slacked off in creativeness.
One of the first photos we have of us.
And our first kiss as a married couple!
