*I was a go getter in high school. I played soccer, basketball, cheerleading, Student Body Secretary, Madrigals, etc... busy busy busy and loved every minute of it!
*I met President Monson when I worked at Snelgroves Ice Cream shop in Sugarhouse. I still remember...A large Rocky Road waffle cone.

*I burned my house down trying to make doughnuts when I was 13.
*We haven't had TV for nearly 3 years.
*I hate talking on the phone.

Naughty Little Secret?

I HATE HOUSEWORK! I'd much rather be doing other things.

NO Crafter is perfect..what gives or is neglected?

What crafting skills do you lack? Crocheting, Knitting, and complicated sewing.

How are you inspired by your crafts?
*I think I have a knack for looking at something..anything..and I invision how I can put my own spin on things. I can be sitting in the middle of an ihop, and look at the decor and somehow come up with a craft that pertains to the decor. Wierd! I know!
*Also by the other fabulous bloggers around.

Do you sell your crafts, if so what is your store called and where can we find it?
If you visit you can find all the stores I am currently working on getting up and running. But Pink Igloo Designs has a few things that can be purchased.


  1. It was fun to learn more about you!

  2. Erika! WHAT A SMALL WORLD! Yes, I know Sheridan I taught her piano for a few months before she moved to North Pole. Do you know the Wendorf's? They moved up there around the same time that Sheridan did.

    Matt and Janelle Wilson (Radio announcer in Kodiak now in Kenai) are some of our BEST friends! We just love them and are going up to Alaska this summer to see my husband's family in Fairbanks and visit with the Wilson's in Kenai!

    We loved being in Kodiak. We were there from 2004-2008. Great place, gorgeous scenery, safe town. Like a lot of small towns in Alaska :)

    I'd love to swap blogs sometime. Thanks for the post and I am looking forward to browsing your blog too!
