See that picture? My daughter caught me on a really good day. :) I'm Peggysue. Each of the Papertrey Peeps is going to post an introduction here, mine just happens to be first, but we all co-own this blog.
I've been married to my best friend for ten years now. I had three kids, he had two, we adopted one and added a dog and a cat. Most of the older kids are away at college or on their own, so the house isn't really as crowded as it sounds! And my oldest 'baby' just got engaged in December, so we're going to have a wedding in a little over a year.
During the day I am a freelance writer and I've written about everything from the history of the Apache Wars to the functionality and composition of glycomacropeptides. That writing helps support my stamping hobby. I started stamping when a friend dragged me to a Stampin' Up party. I bought the cheapest set I could find in the catalogue and shoved it under the bed. Six months later this friend had ANOTHER party!!! Would she stop already??? I bought another cheap set and shove it under the bed. Around the time I went to her fourth party (am I a good friend or what?!) I finally pulled the stuff out from under the bed and used it. Since that day I was hooked, and Papertrey Ink I have to admit, is just one of many stamp companies that has collected my money. But their stuff is so darn cute!!! And the ladies who design for PTI are so talented, as are the lovely ladies in our little blog group here, the Papertrey Peeps.
I love my church and really look forward to Sundays. I enjoy baking. I collect fabric with the intention of one day making a quilt. I made one for my oldest daughter and it only took me . . . ten years, start to finish. At that rate I might finish one for my son before he starts collecting social security. I occasionally cross-stitch. I like to knit socks because they're portable and when we take long drives to visit the kids at college it gives me something to do with my hands. When the weather is warm we like hiking, canoeing, geocaching and just exploring the countryside. I also love to read and yes, you will find me pushing the vacuum with my nose in a book.
