Fireflies and JellyBeans Blog Swap!

Hello- Spirit of Giving readers! I am so excited to be swapping blogs with this fun, and cute blog! Becky makes wonderful things-right?! Don't you just lover her personalized hoodie towels?! (I am so jealous of her embroidery machine)
Let me introduce myself:
I'm Fawnda from Fireflies and Jelly Beans, a little DIY craft blog I co-author with my best friend Jeannine!

Here is a little bit about me:
I am a SAHM (that is a stay-at-home-mom) to a son. I am married to most amazing man (sorry ladies- I found him first!) We adopted our son from Korea about 10 months ago! He is 19 months old and he is truly a joy and probably one of the cutest kids in the world (right along with yours!). I tutor High School Math students (Before I became a SAHM I was a math teacher).
I love to craft!
I rediscovered my sewing machine about 6 months ago and I love it! I also love to make cards. I am addicted to the scrapbook paper packs (They have a theme for everything! and I want them all! ) I am a pretty picky eater so I prefer to be the one who cooks!

My hobbies besides crafting include:
Reading - I just got done reading the twilight series and loved it! Some of my other favorite books are Harry Potter (all 7 of them!) The Time Travelers Wife (just saw the movie and LOVE it and sobbed at it!)The Princess Bride (Yes it was a book before the movie!)
Watching movies- and than quoting them! Some of my favorite movies are: The Princess Bride, Mr and Mrs Smith, Ocean's 11, Pride and Prejudice
Talking on the phone- I love it... I know I am weird!
Hanging out with my girlfriends -Who doesn't love that?!?!

I just opened an etsy shop: Funky Joy
Where I sell reusable snack bags, lunch bags and Auto trash bags. I am always adding more stuff so be sure to check often!
Check out the snack bags here.

Check out the lunch bags here.

Check out the car trash bags here.

Here are some of my favorite projects that I have done:
Fabric Covered Barrettes
Fall leaf table runner

place mat children's art smock

I don't just sell them, I also show you how to make them! (I am nice like that!)
Reusable Snack Bags
Same with the Snack bags... Probably not the best marketing plan but I would rather have friends than money! : ) (although- if you would like to buy one that would be great too! Friends AND money is the best!)

A Frame Rehab
When you get a chance stop by Fireflies and Jelly Beans we have lots of fun tutorials, rehabs, recipes, and great ideas!

Thanks Becky for letting invade your blog today! It was so fun!
