My name is Shannon. I like making things, and recently, I thought I’d try my hand at making a baby. Mission accomplished! Sweet baby Alexis was born in August, and I’m so glad she’s here.

I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 9 years. Although we have both lived in many places, we currently call the midwest home, but our hearts are in Arizona.

I have two kitties who have been my only children for 9 years. They may not look it, but these two are brothers. I suspected that they would be very jealous of a human baby, but they have surprised me by how much they love (tolerate?) their new baby sister. They like to snuggle with her in my lap, Roo licks her toes, and Yoda sounds the alarm if he hears crying (just in case I didn’t notice.)

These days, the world revolves around Alexis. When there’s time, I like to be making something (crafty or edible.)
