Intro to StampinAngelJenn - welcome to my blog!
OK so I just had to jump on this blogging train! I mean, really, I cannot stand to be left out. So here I am!
A little bit about me - the name is Jenn and I have 2 passions in life, ChemoAngels and rubber stamping - hence the nickname/blogger title - StampinAngelJenn. My other passions are writing and reading, Stephen King to be specific, but I didn't think StampinWritinReadinStephenKingAngelJenn was a very good nickname, so I compromised with myself and went with what this blog would be about, and what my Splitcoaststampers name happens to already be (see links).
My husband is Jeremy, he's a union Iron Worker, Local 7. We have 2 fantastic kids - our son Trevor will be 15 this Summer. Trevor has Asperger's, which is a high-functioning form of autism, to be very brief. He's an awesome kid, with a heart of gold. He's involved in the Air Force Junior ROTC program at his high school, which he loves. I think this boy will end up in the Air Force some day, hopefully as an officer. He is dying to fly a plane, and my husband has his pilot's license, so someday.... Then there's the "baby" - that's Cassidy, our beautiful daughter, she's going to be 13 years old in 2 days (that's her and I in this picture on Easter 2008). Cassidy is an honors student in middle school, and she is such a great kid. I'm extremely proud of how hard she works in school and what a good person she is. I don't know how I went from being a mom to 2 young kids to being a mom of 2 teenagers! It's a different world, and I love it despite it's challenges. I love that I'm close with my kids and truly helping form the adults they are becoming. I love being a mom more than anything else in the world!
So besides ChemoAngels, stamping, writing and reading, I actually work full-time, too! I am the Billing & Collections Manager at a small private local college, and I love my job. I normally spend my weekdays working, cooking, and cleaning (HA! - anyone who knows me, just keep your comments to yourself, OK? hee hee) - and then on weekends, I go crazy with paper and ink! I love to make cards, that's my favorite thing to create. I enjoy scrapbooking, but I am very bad at keeping up with it. Every time I intend to do some scrapbooking, I end up making 20-30 new cards. LOL
So here's my plan - I want to keep you entertained AND keep you wanting to come back for more! I will be posting random stories and artwork, as well as pictures and updates on my life. I hope you find this an enjoyable place to come and hang out. Peace!
