What I do

Well, I really like to sew and crochet so when you add the two together you get mcgeemommy. I started making the embellished burp diapers a few years ago before I had my girl. I started giving them as gifts and then starting selling some others. A burp diaper is a burp diaper and after so many washings they start looking bad until I added the fabric panel and crochet trim. A burp diaper is a staple when you have a baby so why not make it cute! I have posted a few pics. of some diapers I have done in the past. There will be some in my shop soon so check it out when you get time. I really want to get this ball rollin' so I am working on it everyday. I will have a few other "projects" for sell as well.

Thank you for visiting!

A new adventure....

Photo of the brick mason by

I am amazed at the talent behind all the blogs I read everyday. There are so many inspiring stories, pictures, love and laughter filling them up that I find myself wanting to see my life in words and pictures. I finally got the nerve to create my first blog so I am starting off basic people!
I am a stay at home mom with 3 kiddos to keep life interesting and busy. I have 2 boys and 1 girl ages 8-rotten 6- more rotten and 4- most rotten. I have a husband who is not afraid of hard work and is also the world's fastest brick mason (Guinness Book of World Records) I am not usually one to brag but I think that deserves some bragging rights!

I really love the beach and coffee made by me..No Starbucks for me (sorry) I wish I had more time to read good books and take naps but that is just not the type of person I am. I have to be working on something all the time. That is the reason I taught myself to sew and crochet. My hands and mind can be busy at the same time. I love photos (old and new) and the stories they tell. I could sit and listen to someone talk about their life for hours. I do my own yard work, dishes, laundry and kid raising. We have 2 dogs, 1 fish, 1 horse and lots of relatives.
I will post some of the sewing/crochet projects I have completed soon. I have an Etsy store but no merchandise. I know...I know.... I am working on it people!
Thank you to several people for letting me steal ideas from their blogs and their time. I am new and maybe one day someone will steal ideas from me too!
