About Me

Well hello there. I'm so glad you stopped by Grace Violet! This little blip on the world-wide-web has been my crafty home since April of 2008. I named the site for my two girls - Grace and Violet are their middle names!

I have been happily married to Kevin for nearly 10 years. We met in Accounting 101 and were married after my sophomore year in college. I went on to graduate with a degree in Marketing, and had our oldest daughter one week after I accepted my diploma (that sure was a fun semester!). Nearly 3 years later, our family was made complete with little sister. Now they are 8 and 5 and I can say that having two girls is just as fun as I imagined it to be! I am so thankful to be a full-time mom.

As you can surmise, I enjoy crafts of all sorts. But in case you have the interest (and time) to delve further into my psyche, I have compiled a list of random facts about myself:

-I believe that Jesus Christ came to earth, died and rose again. He is my Savior.

-Blue is my current favorite color (it will change soon enough, it always does)

-Avocados are my favorite food.

-I stabbed my hand once trying to remove the pit of an avocado.

-"Aloha" is my standard greeting when I'm texting my husband.

-I am the oldest of 5 kids (4 girls and 1 boy) and was homeschooled until high school.

-I love Mr. Darcy.

-Women who don't carry purses confuse me.

-Popcorn and mini M&M's were made for each other.

-Don't talk to me in the morning.

-I love the scent of honeysuckle. I have stood in a park and just sniffed and smelled until my husband was embarrassed by me.

-I cannot leave the house without my lip balm (J.R. Watkins in Raspberry).

-I love high heels... in theory.

That's all I've got for now!
